Lead Crystal Shoemaker Figurine: A Master Craftsman in Glass

Owning a piece of Scandinavian design history is within reach with this exceptional lead crystal shoemaker figurine. This figure depicts a skilled shoemaker crafting or repairing a woman’s shoes.

A Legacy of Skilled Hands:
  • Celebrating Craftsmanship: Part of a limited series honoring various craftsmen, this figurine pays homage to the artistry and dedication of shoemakers. Unfortunately, this is the only figurine in the series currently available at Father Joe’s Villages. However, we think you’ll enjoy this one for years to come. (Other figures in the series [not included] are a glass blower, founder, chimney sweep, blacksmith, chef, and carpenter.)
  • Designed by Olle Alberius: Crafted by Swedish designer Olle Alberius, this lead crystal figurine showcases clean lines and meticulous attention to detail.
  • Orrefors Quality: Orrefors manufactured the figurine in Sweden circa 1985. The product exemplifies the brand’s commitment to exceptional design and craftsmanship.
A Unique Collectible:
  • Intricate Details: The figurine captures the essence of the shoemaker’s craft, rendered in clear lead crystal.
  • Compact and Display-ready: This figurine is only 4.5″ tall. Therefore, it’s ideal for display on a shelf, desk, within a curio cabinet, and other areas with limited space.
  • Signed with Distinction: A small sticker on the figurine’s bottom reads “Orrefors Sweden,” adding to its authenticity.
More Than Just a Figurine:

By purchasing this figurine from Father Joe’s Villages, you’re not only acquiring a beautiful collector’s item. You’re also contributing to our mission to prevent and end homelessness in San Diego.
