Description

This hat could be anywhere from the 1860's to the 1910's, being such a classic style and all.

It is a hand crafted tilt hat created out of a very light silk organza ribbon that is swirled into patterns on top of a raffia base. on each side there is the addition of delicate millinery flowers in shades of pink, and touches of greenery. The flowers on either side match in the actual flower, but not in the way it is applied.
There is a long silk taffeta ribbon attached at the back, whether to hold it on to the head or as decoration, I do not know.
The inside is also a work of art, and is obviously hand done. The lining has one small spot of silk distress, the rest of the hat is in very good condition
The base is heart shaped.

It measures 7 inches long and 7.5 inches wide.

It is a great hat to wear, display or add to a serious hat collection.


This 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 around, comes around.
Love of quality and beauty from the past is happiness.
