The glass has encased bubbles and stress marks on the top. The top is ground – that is it was sawed off. This was a common practice during this period. As I understand it, this once had a metal top to it that said “Bear” on it. I have no idea what it was filled with. Wale’s Goodyear made rubber and these rubber overshoes in the 1880s and very early 1890s. They operated in Naugatuck, Ct, Worcester, Massachusetts and other towns in the area. They sold these rubber “galoshes” to the larger cities like shoe sellers in Boston.
Material: Antique Heavy Glass
Approximate Creation Date: Around 1880s or 90s (a guess)
Where Created: Unknown
Approximate Dimensions in Inches: 3 3/4 long on the sole, but 3 7/8 length overall x 1 1/2 wide on the fore front of the sole & 1 3/8 on the heel of the sole & 1 5/16 wide at rim x 2 1/8 tall at the heel
Markings on both sides of the shoe: WALES GOODYEAR (If there is an apostrophe between the E and the S, I can’t see it.)
Markings on the bottom: None
Condition: Very Good Antique Condition
As mentioned above, there are stress marks on the back of the shoe at the opening. They were created as the glass was cooled. There is glue all around the sawed off top. That is what they used to attach the metal closing. In addition, there is a glob of this glue on the inside of the shoe. Lastly, there is one chip on the rim. This may have happened when they removed the tin top. I really do not know. It is located on the rim and right above the buckle.
I ship using USPS or UPS - whichever is least expensive and quicker.

Your package is important to you AND me.
I ALWAYS reimburse you if the shipping is less than estimated by the Etsy calculator.

I normally ship within one business day of payment and I usually ship SIX days a week. I live in a small town, so my post office is normally only open 29 hours per week. I don't have a problem working around their tight schedule.

AtMemoryLane is located in the USA. I sell to the 50 US states, as well as, the US Territories and United States DPOs, APOs, and FPOs.
Information retained by AtMemoryLane includes the information that is part of an electronic sale. This sale could be in the Etsy marketplace at my shop, called AtMemoryLane, or it could be in my Etsy pattern shop, also called AtMemoryLane. The information that is included is information that has been provided by the buyer – which is their name and address. Additionally, any messages sent to the seller via the Etsy conversation system will also be retained on the Etsy site. None of this information is used for any type of marketing, spamming, or solicitation on my part. (And I will not be sending you a Christmas card either.) The information is and was used exclusively for your transaction. The financial information (credit card info) is not provided to the sellers on Etsy so there is nothing to worry about there. Contact information (your name and address) is used exclusively to contact you regarding the items you purchased (if need be), to fulfill your order, and if necessary for legal reasons (for instance for tax purposes). We, Etsy sellers, do not have access to your billing address if it is different from your mailing address. As noted above, Etsy is the only one that even has access to that information; sellers on Etsy do not.
I may use any photos that you might share with me for promotional or selling purposes.
Thank you for reading this.
All orders received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time are processed (mailed) the next day. I usually drop off packages at the post office in the morning six days a week; I normally drop off packages to the UPS drop off point in the afternoon five days a week.
- Etsy does not have a system where we can list UPS as an alternative. I ship via USPS or UPS, whichever is least expensive and quickest. I refund shipping overages paid by you.
If the shipping calculation is over by more than 50 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 50 cents.
If the shipping calculator is under by any amount, you will not know about it; that is, I will not request that you make any further payment because of an error of mine, the calculator, or the system.
My normal hours seven days a week are 1:00 - 9:00 PM. I answer questions within two hours during this time.
On my off hours, I will normally return your question as soon as I open up for the day.
I do not operate with any smart devices - only dumb ones, as they simply do not work in dead zones, so I periodically throughout my day check the old desktop.
1. You, the buyer, shall ensure the items are received by me in the SAME condition in which you received it. You are not required to use the original packaging and box. Feel free to use your own if you so desire
2. In addition, please provide me, via a convo, the tracking number within one eight calendar days of receiving the item.
Returns can be made for any reason whatsoever. You will receive the original cost of the item and the original shipping. I do not charge a bogus restocking fee. Be aware that the cost to return the item (shipping) will not be reimbursed to you.
As you may or may not be aware, shipping insurance benefits the seller. I normally pay for the insurance, if any. The only time, you (the buyer) would pay for the insurance is if YOU request it.
I do not normally buy additional insurance as I tend to pack for a nuclear blast...or, at least, for war.
NO, I am sorry. I do not.
I do, however, encourage you to shop around. In many of my listings, I leave a reference at the bottom of the description to assist you in your research. This way, you will be able to compare apples with apples.
