This is an old cardboard shoe box top from F. Mayer Boot & Shoe Company. Frederick Mayer founded his boot and shoe company in Milwaukee in 1852 and began making his own boots and shoes in 1880. He expanded his factory in the mid-1890s, adding several stories as shown in the building image on this box top. You can see images of horse-drawn carriages, streetcars, and other period sights on the box top. Measures about 9.75" X 6". This item is in FAIR CONDITION. This is ONLY THE FLATTENED BOX TOP from an old shoe box. There are some pin holes along the top, lots of edge wear and edge chipping, and some surface loss as seen in the photographs. The underside of the lid is stained.
