Sorry, this item sold. Have CamanoIslandVintage make something just for you, or try these other items:
This black pillbox hat with the buckle front reminds me of Mary Poppins! Offered here is this vintage Ladies' black pillbox style hat. I love this hat! It features a slightly rigid shell of some textured material (maybe polyester?), with a wide grosgrain black ribbon around the brim and a cute bow in the front that has a buckle looking accent. The brim is all covered in black netting which comes together in the back and has 2 dangling squares of velvet, one with a rhinestone accent in it (missing the rhinestone on the other but easily replaced!). Inside it has a thin elastic cord that I guess is to put under your chin or under your hair at the back to keep the hat from falling off. The inside tag reads: El-Don, Cleveland, New York, 22.
I'm not positive of the age of the hat but was found with a couple other hats, in a hatbox, with 2 receipts, date April 7, 1933 from J.S. Schramm Co. Dry Goods Store, Burlington, Iowa. Researching the J.S. Schramm Co, I see it was established in 1845, and is believed that this store had the longest continuous operating record under one family of any store west of New England. It was still family owned when it closed in 1996.
This hat is in very good vintage condition with no tears, holes or stains that I can find, just the missing rhinestone I mentioned in the back. It doesn't have a funny smell and comes from a non-smoking home. It measures approx 21 inches in diameter around the inside perimeter. I'm giving approximate measurement as it is hard to measure the inside of a hat brim! The tag inside states SIZE 22.
