The boot jack is a utilitarian device used to remove boots. The many designs patented during the last half of the 19th century show a pride in how items looked as well as how they worked. From the very crude to the very elegant, these are samples of various styles and types of boot jacks. None any better than the one we currently have in stock. Start your boot jack collection today at Jere’s Antiques. Please enjoy reading the full 411 on boot jacks here. Jack was a common 18th century name for boys who waited on their masters, according to Isaac Watts’ 1724 book "Logic" and noted by the website Classic Encyclopedia. These boys would help their masters with everything from cooking to pulling off the master’s boots. When a device came along that pulled off the boots without the help of the boy, the name "Jack" stuck and the term "boot jack" was born. There were 239 boot jacks patented in the United States between 1852 and 1995 to inventors in 37 states, the District of Columbia, Austria, Canada, England, Germany, India and Japan. We find wonderful examples of boot jacks made from cast iron, wood and brass. There are many examples of one-of-a-kind boot jacks as well as those produced in mass quantities. They were especially popular advertising and promotional tools. Examples marked “Phelps Dodge & Palmer Chicago,” “Use Musselmans Boot Jack Plug Tobacco,” and “The Glover Boot and Gaiter Jack Paterson NJ” were given away by various companies. The most common boot jack is the “cricket,” with two antennae coming out from the top of the head to form the place for the heel of the boot. Another common form of boot jack is the “Naughty Nellie,” a risqué item in the shape of a woman on her back with her legs up to receive the heel of the boot. It has been produced in many sizes and with varying amounts of anatomical detail. Significant information about boot jacks remains scarce. The maker often did not mark the item with information on the origin, name or date of manufacture, which makes it difficult to determine the date and place of production. Many of the boot jacks patented in the 19th century were never put into production, and some that were had only limited output and remain very rare today. The U.S. Patent Office decided some years ago to dispose of its patent models in an effort to save space. This is unfortunate for Americans with an interest in the history of inventions in this country, for we lost many fine examples of them. It is, however, good news for collectors, as quite a few of these disposed-of items found their way into private hands.
