Hattie Carnegie Vintage 1940s Hat

Today I have listed a wonderful vintage 1940 hat by legendary American milliner Hattie Carnegie.  This hat has never been offered for sale previously, and is astoundingly beautiful.  Since I was not able to list hats for sale for the past few months due to website maintenance, I thought I might just make a special mention of this very special hat.

Spring

Hello!  Spring is just around the corner, and that means HATS!  
 
In case you have been patiently waiting for the hats to arrive on the shelves,  I want to let everyone know that I have been busy with presentations and hat shows, and am in the midst of a large restoration project.    My apologies go out to all of those who have contacted me and have yet to receive a reply.  I promise to get back to everyone.  Thank you for stopping by! 
 
Here is a page from the scrapbook of a millinery student who collected images in the 1940s for her inspiration.   The Balenciaga hat is wonderful!
 
 
Merci, Babette
