Description

A rare wooden vintage hat block form found in Florence, Italy.  This form or mold appears to have been used to make an asymmetrical fedora style hat.  A fun object for a retail shop, for styling a bookcase, or even for hanging on a wall.  

We have a few hat blocks available that could be purchased together to make a striking statement.  See last photo.
