Vintage Wooden Snowshoes.
An attractive and outstanding pair of snow shoes constructed from bent hickory frames with stretchers and interlaced gut supports. The snow shoes are in great original condition with reindeer skin boot ties.
Snowshoes were a common form of transport and sport amongst North American natives and were later taken up by settlers like fur trappers. Snow shoeing later became a weekend sporting activity that is still very popular in America and now also in the Alps.
