Product Description

A charming pair of hat stands…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these pieces, we understand from their previous owner that they date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s. Having previously been used in an old haberdashery store, the heads were actually used as ‘hat stands’ to display stock in store

Both pieces are hand crafted in foam, then hand painted. They are lightweight yet perfectly ‘free stand’ on their own. They are charming in appearance with striking facial features and wouldn’t look out of place on display in your home, or of course in display in a retail environment. These particular pieces could be used as a hat stands again or for displaying wigs and jewelry etc…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The hat stands are good structurally, yet there are some surface marks, scratches and paint chipping. There are a few losses to the main structures and the odd chip or small tear here and there. We simply feel that the current condition simply adds to their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
