Lucy Puci (Loosey Poosey) was the brainchild of Lucylle Smith Gilbert who rose from apprentice to principal designer for Chicago based millinery company Lemington Inc. Gilbert designed hats for first ladies Mamie Eisenhower and Pat Nixon. Another loyal hat buyer was Carol Channing. In the company’s heyday, the company produced over 900 hats per day under various labels. Gilbert, famous for designing 10 – 15 different hat styles per day, had a very interesting way of working. Instead of sketching her ideas she drew inspiration from the materials on hand. Other labels by the company were Lemington and Sam Budwig. Lemington closed sometime in the late 1960s. Gilbert died in 1994 at the age of 86.
Breton style which means a rounded or flat-crowned hat with a brim that turns up around the edges, originally worn by peasants in Brittany, a region in France.
Innes was a major department store in Wichita, Kansas.

In 1892, Charles Whiting wove by hand the first Whiting & Davis handbag from gold metal mesh, creating one of the first “It” handbags. The company also created their second iconic design, the snake bracelet late in the 1890s. By 1896, Charles Whiting had partnered with company co-founder Edward Davis and the name Whiting & Davis was born. Throughout the 20th century, Whiting & Davis created highly sought after metal mesh handbags, jewelry, and other accessories. The company is still in existence today using different jewelry marks to differentiate new items from vintage pieces.

One of a kind vintage item. Get it before it's gone.

  • A magnificent straw hat perfect for the church.
  • Bright orange straw in a flattering wide brim style.
  • Tousled bows of straw and horsehair surround the crown. 
Hair taken from the manes and tails of horses was widely used in millinery in the 19th Century to that 1910s.  It was used much less in later decades as synthetic horsehair became available.  Most 20th century hats, like this one, are made of synthetic horsehair, usually crinoline.
Don Anderson was a prominent milliner from the 1950s -1980s. Born in International Falls he studied art at Parsons School of Design. Frustrated with his career he was standing in front of millinery supply house when the proprietor asked if he was interested in the hat business. A millinery career was born. Through the years he designed and worked with Chanda, John-Fredericks and Lilly Dache. Later Anderson was a licensee for Halston.

This label was a partnership of John Pico Harberger (a/k/a "John Pico John" or "Mr. John") and Frederic Hirst. The Coty awards gave John-Frederics a special award for millinery in 1943. When Mr. John and Frederic Hirst dissolved their partnership in 1948, Mr. John formed the Mr. John label. Frederic Hirst kept the John-Frederics label and also designed hats as "Mr. Fred." After the split, Mr. Fred did not fare as well as Mr. John. John-Frederics was mentioned and/or advertised in fashion magazines in the 1920s through the 1950s. John Frederics Charmer hats were advertised in 1950s magazines after Mr. John left the label. The Philadelphia Museum of Art has 20 hats in its online collection, including examples before and after the partnership split. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has 44 hats, including this innovative turban made of wool yarn and beads circa 1937-41, a turban made of twisted straw braid and silk circa 1940 (and a variation in different colors), an amazing medieval inspired toque with donut shapes dripping with fringe circa 1941, and a spangled snood circa 1942. Labels: John Frederics Made to Order, John Frederics, John Frederics Charmer (less expensive line), "Sweet Young Things" "Miss Frederics."
