Milliners Hat

Block or Stretcher

You are offerding on the block only.

Thisfabulous milliners hat block was used to manufacture hats, the milliner could make the hat a certain size, when the metal handle is turned one side of block moves out with it.

It is in "as found" condition and has not been restored or repaired by us.

The block has a lovely depth of colour and a patina that only comes withage and years of use. Unfortunately the base of the wooden block has been replaced at some point in its history; this does not effect the use of the block as the "head" part is intact and works fine. There are the usual marks, scuffs, scratchesandcracks to the block that you would expect from a well used item. The screw mechanism works .

All of this is mentioned for clarity and none of these affect the way the block looks, in fact all of this just adds to the character and charm of vintage items.

It measures 33 cm (13 inches) high. The base measures 31 cm (12 1/4 inches) by 16.5 cm (6 1/2 inches).

This isa super piece of social history thatwould look great asa display item.
