The boot jack is a device used to remove boots. I was watching American Pickers the other day, and the boys ran across a collection of these. They were made of cast iron, and as the video shows, makes taking your boots off a snap.

There were 239 boot jacks patented in the United States between 1852 and 1995. They were especially popular advertising and promotional tools. One of the most popular boot jacks 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.
