Vintage 1920s Hat Black Straw Wide Brim Sailor Style with Ostrich Feathers by Philipsborn Sz 23

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


1920's large sailor style hat in a quality black straw.

4 inch deep oval crown is wrapped in black ostrich feathers. Wide brim extends 4 1/2 inches with a circumference of approximately 54 inches.

Interior is lined in black silk with the side velvet pieces to size it down. Inner circumference is 23 inches.

Label is Philipsborn - Washington. Philipsborn was a Chicago based milliner but I've never seen a Washington label.

As for the condition, there is some shredding of the silk lining in the front where it would have come down low on the forehead. The 1920's ushered in hats to be worn low on the head sometimes down to the eyebrows, hence the shredding in the front. The black ostrich feathers show some age and a bit of stem loss.

Don't hesitate to email with questions.

Thank you for shopping with Alley Cats Vintage.

Domestic shipping to some areas may have to be parcel select due to box size. International shipping will be by international priority which is a bit pricey. If you like you can convo me for a cost before purchase.

This bag is so much fun and I adore the mechanism which allows me to flip over depending on the weather and my mood. Such a cool bag.

I am pleased with the slip that I received from the vendor.
"THE" vendor "is" most definitely a very fine lady and very
co-operative !
I will be looking forward to future business dealings with her.
