1920's Black MILGRIM Womens Flapper Era Hat ART DECO

Here is a gorgeous antique vintage DESIGNER flapper era black sheer horsehair hat from the 1920's. This looks just like the hats worn on Boardwalk Empire! Except this is the real deal. An authentic  antique hat in amazing condition. --- This hat was designed by Sally Milgrim, she was known for her very high end evening gowns & accessories, dressing many women of American aristocracy like Eleanor Roosevelt... see photo below of E. Roosevelt in a Milgrim gown. Her dresses are very collectible & rare with most priced into the thousands of dollars. This is a rare almost mint condition designer hat all in black, inside lined with silk chiffon, it has a black silk ribbon & bow around the head. The classic flapper era style wide brim and a smaller/shorter brim in the back. This hat was never worn by the original owner. We acquired it from the original family, they told us this. It was just stored in a box so it's in wonderful condition, almost perfect!  There's a very fine metal wire inside around the brim so you can shape it any way you like. We had it professionally steamed. SHIPPING NOTE: Because of the bigger size, if we can find a less expensive way to ship it we'll refund you any money back if PO overcharged for shipping.

  • We have LAY-A-WAY! - See "Ordering + Lay Away" page for details.

Condition Details: Very black, sheer. This hat was not worn, it was kept in the closet by the original owner. There is one teensy tiny slit shaped hole in the top of head (we try to show it in photo).


Size Details: Fits an average adult womens head. Aprox 22" around inside.
