Vintage Hat Mold, Antique Vulcanized Rubber Millinery Block Form, Very Rare, Sun Hat, Wall Decor, Canvas Covered

$225.00

Shipping to United States: $11.50

This is a terrific and very rare Vintage Hat Mold. This Antique Milliner's Millinery Block Form is made from Vulcanized Rubber which has a fused canvas covered surface. I have a collection of 6 pieces at the time of listing, please inquire. This one looks like a Sun Hat of wide brim felted.

In my research I have been unable to find anything like this, though I was able to find a Patent information listing from 1878 discussing the use and modifications of design for this type of mold. Make great Wall Decor for all kinds of interiors.

This piece is in excellent vintage condition with definite signs of wear and age. Surface is clean yet very stained, no flaking or surface looseness, but there is surface texture due to age and use. Please look closely at the photos to appreciate all the terrific details, as well as to best understand overall condition.

Hat Form measures 17.5"diameter x 7.5" deep / Tall at the crown, measured laying flat.
