|Deluxe Vinatge Ladies Glengarry style Veiled Pill Box Hat for Civil War Victorian Reenactment plus Antique 1870s Hatpin
Glengarry pillbox hats first became popular in the Civil War era, then again in the WWII era and remains quite popular today. 100% Black wool made in USA with 2 prestigious labels, indicating top of the line vintage quality. Structured to retain it's shape. Features soft french netting that forms a chin length veil. Veil can be worn down or tucked into the hat's crown as desired. See the pics which show it worn both ways. Satin ribbon accents the crown's shape. A large spray of fluffy black feathers float over the back of crown and down the back brim. Plus 3 long iridescent black feathers dangle over the crown and brim. Makes an elegant Victorian impression for strolling, mourning or traveling. Please note the netted hair snood is NOT included in this sale. See details on specific sizing below.
An antique black glass, early Victorian hatpin is included to stabilize hat on head. It has never been worn and comes from an antique card of hatpins which I sell separately for $20. It has been cleaned and is in very good condition, with straight sturdy steel shaft and tight head. Fancy beaded hatpins, sold at most sutlerys are not period correct for the early Victorian era. This hatpin is a true example of the first real hatpins made that early Victorian ladies saved their pennies and most patiently waited for shipments to arrive.
Hat meant to sit on top of head, with front brim dipping toward the brow. App. 7.5" inside crown front to back & app. 6" side to side. Measures app. 21" inside crown. Due to the style of sitting on the crown, it will fit most all average medium small to medium ladies hat sizes. This is a very comfortable, top quality, unworn vintage hat. It has been steam cleaned. Inside crown stamped with emblem " Doeskin Felt 100% Wool GEO BOLLMAN Co. Inc Made in USA." Prestigious labels "Sylvia New York St Louis" and "High Hatter". I seek out good well made vintage hats and most all the hats are new or never worn top quality vintage. All made in the USA!!!
