Advertisement - Pasta Maker, circa 1920 Document Reg. No: SH 000906

Advertisement for a Pasta Maker/Tomato Paste Maker, part of a group of objects either brought to Australia by Vincenzo Candela and his wife Emanuela Nigro in 1920 or purchased here by them. The Candelas made much of their own food including homemade pasta, tomato sauce, wine, sausages and they roasted their own coffee. Items that could not be purchased in Australia were often ordered by mail from the Italian manufacturer. This was a practice common in both Italy and Australia. Vincenzo also received catalogues from Italy after his migration to Australia.
Square advertisement that has been removed from a larger catalogue. There are illustrations and extensive text, in Italian, printed in black on both sides. On the front is an image of a pasta maker..
