description

The crow wheel is a shoemaker's tool (approx. 12-14 cm) that consists of a small (approx. 1 cm diameter; a few millimeters wide) wheel with a motif that is fixed in a copper U-shaped bracket and a wooden handle. After it has warmed up, it is rolled over the center of the shoe sole to create a decorative line pattern there. [MOT]
