Original vintage late 1930s/early 1940s WWII era hat Designer G. Howard Hodge
Original WWII era straw Tilt Topper late 1930s/early 1940s with scarlet trim. This hat is from my own personal collection, which has been exhibited in Museums, Fashion Shows and has also appeared on the Antiques Roadshow. Sadly, lack of space is reluctantly forcing sale of part of my collection. A beautiful straw hat with scarlet red bows and a matching red back band with beautiful French silk veiling which has a moderately stiff hand – this could do with steaming before its worn as it does tend to crumple in storage. Condition is Used – this is in very good vintage condition – there are no make up marks on the inner band which is nothing short of miraculous. A lovely lovely upscale tilt topper hat – one size fits all! The label is G Howard Hodge, 711 5th Avenue, New York. It is also squarely dated to WWII as it has the Millinery Creators Guild label inside (registered model) and the label for upscale department store The May Company, Millinery Salon, Cleveland. Please remember that this item is almost 80 years old and as such is a vintage item going towards antique. It may have an odour – which all vintage clothing acquires over time. I do not believe in shoving fabric conditioner sheets in with items – this does run the risk of damage on delicate garments and frankly, I much prefer the honest fragrance of a timeless piece rather than some hideous chemically induced smell. This item has had a previous life and at least two previous owners! If you want something that is pristine, then this item is not for you. Please examine the images carefully before committing yourself and if in any doubt, please ask questions. I do, in the interests of the environment, reuse clean packaging wherever possible. The carrier will normally be Hermes – I rarely use the post office unless for a small parcel. The item “Original vintage late 1930s/early 1940s WWII era hat Designer G.
