Millinery History: Buckram Hat Forms June 13, 2011

The 1950s must have been a busy time for creating hat forms. Sometimes these forgotten buckram treasures come my way. Taking them to show Raymond Hudd is the main purpose for collecting them. Some shapes are a tad complicated and probably above my lifetime level of expertise to use properly. Take a look at an assortment that have made their home in assorted hatboxes.

Anyone out there still working with these today? Please send some stories, you are among one of the few.

Happy June 12, 2011

    I have a couple of those hat forms! From the J.L. Hudson Co. I was wondering if anyone would still use them.
    You certainly have a wide selection. Very unique.

    Decor more than use, I imagine. Unless one wants to design new vintage hats. Ideal for theater, perhaps.
    Thanks for stopping by the blog.
