    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.

  • HOW TO FIND YOUR HAT SIZE

    1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head.

    2. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. You are measuring your head exactly
    where the hat will sit in either inches or centimeters.

    3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
