Sweet 1900's Antique Straw Hat & Hatstand
- Source: eBay
This is Lady Belva Simmons who had nothing to keep herself occupied so she opened this little notions shop. She raised many eyebrows within her circle of friends so she has decided to sell out!.This little hat is a cutie and would fit most dollhouse dolls. It is woven straw with old composition flowers on one side and a lavender silk ribbon on the other. It was manufactured about 1900--probably in Germany. It has a tiny "fleabite" to the edge on the front. The hat stand is adorable and I think the same age but not sure. It is wooden with gold trim paint and in outstanding condition. Stand measures 2 3/4 inches tall, hat is 1 3/4" wide. RETURN POLICY: All of my listings are from my private collection. They are all old, scarce and interesting. If after purchase you change your mind, you do not have to prove the piece unworthy. Just handle it carefully---they are fragile---package it carefully in the condition it was received and return it to me for a refund. I NEVER give partial refunds. In the unlikely event the piece arrives broken, it is fully insured at my expense. Just keep the packaging and I will send you the paperwork.
