Here you will find a wide selection of authentic vintage hats. You will find designer and department store names as well as lesser known millinery masterpieces. Styles range from the wide, flamboyant pieces of the 1900's and 1910's, the low- brimmed, timeless cloches of the 1920's, the lower profiles of the 1930's and 1940's, the classic cocktail hats and pillboxes of the 1950's and 1960's and most everything in between and beyond.
Over the years hats have often been an outlet for creative expression. Designers have used accessories ranging from bows and ribbons to jewels and sequins to feathers. Millinery design had such an impact on the bird population during the 1900's that anti-plumage laws were enacted.
