PRO --- PATRIE (Cleveland)SKU 00925C
Hand-made snowshoe? promoting Grover Cleveland for president, c. 1888. 1 1/2 x 5 3/4". Looks like a carte de visite which has been sewn into a stringed wooden showshoe. Definitely weird and definitely from the period with hand-written letters above Cleveland's portrait. "PRO PATRIE" (sic) = "For One's Country".
