Overshoe encased in copper colored metallic paint. According to HHS Historian Kay Johnson, "labels says from Apsley maybe. I doubt it because Apsley [would have made them in 1905] and this overshoe [is from] 1950 or later. This mold was probably used as advertising outdoors and was bolted to a sign or display. The actual oveshoe would be constructed of a sturdy fabric, with seams cemented, then dipped into a liquid rubber so that it was waterproof. At the top, the gusset flap would be folded over to assure a tight fit so no snow would get in. It would be secured by an elasticized cord loop stapled to the flap and looped around a button. This heavy cast metal model has been spray painted with a copper colored metallic paint, which means it would not have been made by Apsley as spray painting had not yet been invented when that plant was still producing overshoes."
