Vintage Noreen Fashion Black Velvet Hat Labels still in for United Hatters Cap and Millinery Union Workers.

It measures Outside=12 1/5" X 16 1/2" X 31/2" if needed. Inside 7" across.

It has a couple of places where it had some on invited pressure which resulted in flattening of those spots. Very hard to depict given it is not real noticeable. Wife said common with velvet.

Very HTF with both these two labels still there, both are hanging on and we will not seek to give them more security. The Union Label is adhesive applied, while Noreen Fashion is tacked on.

This hat could easily have color adornments added to compliment your attire, just one of many options.

Union Label also has normal seals for this Union, I'm sure further research could nail down factory and date. Label is one of the early ones.

I'm including more info I uncovered about this Union.

Historical/Biographical Note

The United Hatters Cap and Millinery Workers International Union (UHCMW) was formed in 1934 by the amalgamation of United Hatters of North America (UHNA) and the Cloth Hat, Cap and Millinery Workers International Union (CHCMW). The United Hatters of North America (UHNA) was established in New York in 1896 as the resultof the merger of two Kinights of Labor-affiliated unions in the men's hat industry, the the Hat Makers and the Hat Finishers. The Cloth Hat, Cap and Millinery Workers International Union (CHCMW) was established in New York in 1901, as the United Cloth Hat and Cap Makers of North America (superceding the the Cloth Hat and Cap Operators Union), and took its final name (adding Millinery Workers) in 1918. In 1983 the UHCMW joined the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union, which in turn merged in 1995 with the International Ladies Garment Workers Union to form UNITE (Union of Needletrades, Industrial and Textile Employees).
