Pates clog vasesPates clogs
made in Sydney, Australia 1940s

In the 40s in Australia- attention turned to international affairs. International relations and customs- and in the arts this translated into- international footware.

So – an inordinate amount of attention was spent on collecting ‘shoes’ from different cultures. Here we have a selection of clogs- all in Pates signature colours and glazes – the back two serving also as ashtrays [because – why not combine an international interest with an actual requirement?]

This collection of Pates clogs is for sale: $AUD95
