I am offering almost half of my collection of vintage millinery hat blocks for sale. OFFER ACCEPTED Mostly these are blocks to make "suit hats" worn by fashionable ladies, perched on the head like a fascinator. These are the kind of hats seen on the silver screen in the 1930's through the 1960's. There are berets, caps and blocks that telescope the material forming interesting peats.
All but two of them are solid wood, (two are actually paper mache) and about two thirds of that are 5-piece sectional.
Individually the blocks total over $30,000 however I am offering this collection of 125 blocks starting at $20,000.
You can find individual pictures of them on my flickr page by following this link:

I will be accepting offers for the lot for two weeks, after that if they are still available, I will offer them individually. I am happy to answer any questions via email or coments here.
Please see the previous post for more information about the blocks.
