Description

This lovely straw hat was a classic design in the early part of the 1900's through to the 20's. It is so flattering to just about anyone.
The brim can be adjusted so that it flips up, or down, because the straw in this hat is very pliable.

The trim is a raffia type material, stitched into the side of the hat, and the flowers around the brim. I cannot tell if the flowers go in the front, the back or the side, so I guess it is wherever you want them to be.

The outside of the hat is in very good condition, with a couple of worn raffia bits on the side. The flowers are in excellent shape, as is the straw. The silk lining is a mess and probably needs to be removed. It can easily be worn without a lining. It is a good size.

This is a great hat for a collector ( yes, I really do want to keep it) and can definitely be worn out in the world.

Outstanding for a shabby chic decor.

It is from the Sarah Elizabeth Glover collection.

I was recently able to purchase several hundred pieces from a collection that had been a lifetime's passion for a ninety year old woman. Sarah Elizabeth Glover came to this small town from Santa Barbara California in the 70's, where she and her husband Ray, had operated a costume rental business for many years. They were also avid folk dancers and soon started a massive collection of ethnographic clothing.
Upon moving here, they opened an ethnographic museum and Sarah Elizabeth continued to collect for her already extreme collection of Victoriana, Edwardian, and authentic costumes from all countries. Her folk dancing colleagues were happy to support her in her pursuit of the unusual as they traveled to different countries.
As the passionate collector and operator of a museum, Sarah Elizabeth was fastidious in her care for the items, cycling the items on display regularly with others stored carefully, to prevent hangar fatigue and environmental damage. As a costume designer and expert seamstress, she would mend the mendable and embrace the beauty of antique wear.
Even when her 22 room Victorian home was stuffed to the gills, she didn't quit, and her encyclopedic memory and wealth of knowledge never failed her until her death at age 92.
I will be presenting items from this collection slowly but surely. I am selling these pieces as collectible art, not necessarily something to be worn. The beauty of the workmanship, and the hours of skilled labor, is and of itself of incredible value. In a world of the mass produced and disposable, these items will never be created again except at great expense by a handful of highly skilled and well trained costumers.

What goes aorund, comes around.
Love of the quality and beauty of the past is happiness.
