Description

A rare wooden vintage hat block form found in Florence, Italy.  This form or mold appears to have been used to make a classic 1920s style "mushroom" cloche hat.  A fun object for a retail shop and would also make a unique addition to a collection of hats.  

We have several hat blocks available that could be purchased together to make a striking statement.  See last photo and other listings.
