    Hello Carl... thanks for your note. That hat and virtually all of my others) was found on eBay. The silver milan was quite popular in the mid to later 1950s. I've seen them from all the major makers in a very similar construction and style.
    Alan,have a large floral painting by your uncle. Pink, white blue blossoms in a cobalt blue vase,mint green background that looks 1920's or even the teens to me. Sargent or Whistler influence with very loose spontaneous brushwork.Has a 4th Avenue address on stretcher.Not much info on him available.Brooklyn Eagle 2-23-1936, page 40,one man show at Montross Gallery. Do you know when he began to paint? Jim Ritchie

    Jim, I'm not sure I ever saw or replied to your message. Sorry that it's three years later! Would love to see that painting. My uncle Nat was born around 1903. He was a student at the Art Student League. I would think he painted from the 1920s to the late 1970s. He passed away in the 1980s.
    Allan,
    I have a few beautiful 1940's fedoras you may be interested in. One is fairly rare: A Stetson Imperial "Spectator" , and others all in size 7. Please call at 732 297-0697 or email me at saucerfiend@msn.com only. Prices will be EXTREMELY reasonable and to your liking. Need to move them quickly.
