    I could be completely wrong, but this hat looks much, much earlier than the 1920's to me. The crown, edging and ribbon (beaded band) treatment tell me this is 1830's-1880's. Am I wrong? I have no idea.

    However, if I'm right, they stole this hat, and it was a bargain.

    Here are some points of reference.
    Also, look back one page in this thread. They're not the same, but the look is similar.

    Awww..... Thank you Mr. GWD! Did you find that reasonably priced lettering press yet?? (And did you notice the $500 model didn't sell? Though it did have the original paint and was in EXCELLENT condition with the stand....)

    Yes, Mr. Lefty, I really like that site and the seller's goods; I've oogled their items for a few years. And what I wouldn't give for a real live cowgirl hat! However, I'm waiting for one of the experts on this thread to pipe up - Mr. Douglas or Mr. Dinerman, for starters to tell me what they thought of the age of that hat.

    And Mr. Lefty, I L-O-V-E your new avatar.

    I'd say 1920s seems right, maybe even '30s, going by the style and the sweatband.

    I just bought this for my wife. I can't believe the price. The hats from Monte Cristi Customs start at $400. I have no idea what this one would go for.

    I only wish it was my size!
    Though the hat was made for a woman, the ribbon seems to be on the man's side. As I'm paying more for shipping than I'm paying for the hat, I've got no problem shelling out a few more bucks for a little sewing.

    I just got this for $20, I don't think many Aussies know the brand, and from what I can gather, CRAVENETTE is a waterproofing process rather than a style, it's a touch on the stingy side for me, but with a Cavanaugh edge, it's pretty cute....and it's 7-1/8!
