Pair of vintage wooden clogs, womens "nalin" slippers of Turkish bath houses. They are ornate with subtle carvings that feature a floral pattern. Black uppers are from rubber or plastic.

Clogs are 9 1/2'' long end to end (24.5 cm)
They measure 3'' high including the uppers (8 cm) and 1 1/5'' excluding them (3 cm).
Each piece is approx 3'' wide (7.5 cm).

Together, these hamam shoes weigh 1.4 pound (670 gr).

- Wood shows wear with with several surface cracks and fissures. There is color loss on the motif. Wood is darkened and dust soiled. The pieces need a gentle cleaning.

- Uppers are secured to the wood with two pins (rusty) on each side. There are tiny patches on some of the pins (two of them from leather, the other white fabric)

Thick wood is designed to serve well on the slippery hard marble floors of the bath house. 19th century Ottoman clogs and their numerous replicas would have much higher heels. This pair is NOT an antique, they are common slippers from a time not so long ago when bath houses were still a part of daily life. In my listings for soap boxes I talk a lot about hamams, their little rituals and accessories. They would be places where people both bathed and socialized, hence so many details and objects associated with them.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly send you photos from different angles if you like.
