A fantastic find, an incredible, very rare, mid 18th century pair of ladies pattens, a museum piece.
Pattens were predominantly worn by working class ladies, they are a primitive type of overshoes, designed to protect the skirts from the dirt, mud and filth of fields and streets.
These fabulous shoes are in good condition for the age, they show the age but they are full of charm and character, it is rare to find a pair together and even rarer to find them with the leather.
One piece of the leather side on one of the pattens has come detached but it is unusual to find them with the leather at all.
This pair have leather sections with leather ties attached, the shoe would slide under this and the ties would hold it in place, these still have their original leather ties, many museum pattens even do not have the leather or ties in place, these are just an exceptional find, an incredible piece of history.
The style with the metal hoop and simplistic leather fastening dates them to around 1750, they would make a fantastic display piece or prop.
