Syrian Pattens


Pair of Pattens, 1900-1929, wood and mother-of-pearl, 9 inches long, Catherine Ann Taylor Miller, 1945.2.1.

Pair of wood pattens from Damascus, inlaid with mother-of-pearl geometric motifs on the top, sides, and supports. Two embroidered purple cloth-covered leather straps secure the pattens to the wearer’s foot, elevating them from the mud and dirt of the street.
