Vintage 1940s Lavender Straw Tilt Hat SZ 22.5

This hat even comes with the original receipt and provenance. You will note the receipt dates the sale March 3, and at the bottom: "Easter Hat Mar 24". Easter 1940 was on March 24. And Mrs. Orland H. Blake, nee Gertrude L. Brown, of Bay View Farm, Yarmouth Maine wore this hat for Easter. In style, this hat is more 1939ish than 1940, but it certainly was bought in 1940 from Rines Brothers of Portland. The hat is a pale lavender straw with deeper lavender toned taffeta, with the partial disc brim set on the round crown at a tilt. The taffeta band is draped to slide through the crown to under the and brim. There are flowers on both the under brim and the top brim with a lovely bow. The interior is finished with a grosgrain band and elastic keeper.

1900s Victorian Whitework Cotton Bonnet Sz S

This is most likely a child's bonnet as it seems a bit large for a baby (that's a size 21 head it's shown on), but too small for an adult head. The white embroidery is lovely and graces the band, the scalloped front pieces, the bavolet and the back of the gathered crown. The ties are plain cotton and are quite long.

Size: band from ear to ear: 15.5", Nape to Back of Neck: 12", Neckline: 10".

Label: None

Condition: washed. Still has marks as shown. Several small hand sewn mends along the edge of the scallops. Some soil marks on the ties where it was near the neck and face.

Victorian Era Large Black and White Check Silk Shawl

This is hard to date, but I am thinking late Victorian, possibly early Edwardian. It's a lightweight silk taffeta weave shawl in a black and white fine check center and a wide tan and white plaid border on two corner edges, with a similar border in black and white on the other corner. The edges are finished with silk tassels in tan. A paper tag notes this as "Mrs. Cornelius Van Gusdale's Shawl"

The crown tip is slightly draped and the sides lap over at the center back. An unusual, artistic shape for the time. Original lining is intact.

Vintage 1910s-20s Grey Top Hat SZ 7 1/8

This vintage top hat is a grey wool fabric (not felt) mounted over a hard base. The sweat band is pebbled brown leather with a glued seam (that's older than stitched) and a small bow. The size sticker is an older style, too. The hat came to me in a Cavanaugh hat box, with notation that this hat belonged to Grandpa Asher Pearce.

Asher Pearce was born 1841, died 1936 in the Richmond,Indiana area and served as a 1st Lt. in the 57th Indiana Regiment during the American Civil War. The 'P' sticker has the remains of an 'A' next to it, so I think this was indeed his hat. I just think it belonged to 'SNJ' first as those initials were perforated into the band when the hat was made. As to period? I am thinking 1910s-1920s, but could be as late as the 30s. Toppers are very hard to date. The Cavanaugh hat box with the provenance notations is included. This will increase shipping due to size and weight.

Label: Monogram SNJ.

Size: labeled a 7 1/8. Crown: 22 1/4", Brim: 1 7/8", Height 5 1/2"

Condition: Excellent, but for age spotting throughout.
