This is an object which is rarely seen nowadays—a device for sliding shoes off feet—especially boots with uppers. It used to be very popular, especially at a time when riding boots were fashionable. Two vertical supports were connected to the bottom by a board with a triangular cut out for the heel; a second movable board was screwed on vertically at the height of approximately 58 cm. The vertical supports end with handles for grabbing hold of—connected with each other—at the top. The whole object has a decorative cut. It is an exhibit that evokes merriment in visitors who give various answers to the question—“Who knows what the jack used to be used for?”—asked by the tour guide (a question which sounds particularly amusing in Polish, as the name for this device also means “a boy” in Polish).
The website features a similar device with an equally interesting name. Feel free to share your ideas about the etymology of exhibits from both Dąbrowa Tarnowska and Dobczyce.
