WW1 Dated & “Named” Pair of Miniature Wooden Clogs from ANVERS (Antwerp) Belgium
Here on offer are a WW1 dated and “named”, pair of miniature wooden clogs from ANVERS (Antwerp) Belgium.
These miniature wooden clogs where made as WW1 souvenirs fro soldiers who served on the front in Belgium.
What is fascinating about these clogs is the British soldier who brought them back has written a message in ink across the soles of both clogs, which reads:
Hugh Chapman brought these back from “the front” to his mother & sister Elsa in the 1914 - 18 war.
I don’t know anymore about High Chapman apart from his sister’s name was Elsa and he survived WW1.
The clogs have the town of ANVERS (now Antwerp) carved into the top of both clogs.
They are in great condition with just some filler repair to the right clog on the inner edge where the tiny hole would have been to tie them together with some thin cord. They clearly meant an lot to the family who went to these lengths to repair them!
Each clog measures 2.6” (6.5cm) long and together they weigh 11g.
