Vintage Straw Hats


Straw hats have been worn consistently in Europe and Asia in the Summer since antiquity.



"The Panama is one of the most recognizable straws, evoking the season of summer, lounging on the beach, the linen suit, and men in Hawaiian shirts."









"Arguably the man who popularized the panama for Americans was President Teddy Roosevelt, who wore one when he visited the construction site of the Panama Canal.  Other famous wearers of the Panama include Napoleon III (who had a custom wide brimmed version), Fred Astaire, Paul Henreid (best known to most people as the Victor Lazlo in Cassablanca), and of course, Sir Sean Connery."




I did a post on La Dolfina about how straw hats make for a sweet summer display in your home, beach cottage or lake house.




While I was in Lake Tahoe last week I managed to source several vintage specimens that would make for a fabulous display.





I picked this wonderful pair up at an estate sale the day before I left for Tahoe.  They date from the 50's and came out of the home of long time antique dealers.  They are huge and gorgeous!


I found this antique straw "boater" which was made for a doll.




I was told it was from the 20's.  
The inside is amazing and reads:

CHAPEAU
MAURICE CHEVALIER

SOOLS
MAITRE CHAPELIER
9. Boulevard Poissonniere
PARIS
LONDON            NEW  YORK

SOUVENIR   PERROQUET


  
In and around Lake Tahoe and Reno I found 4 cool straw hats and a lovely vintage straw bag.

I am swamped this week as my poor Mom broke her nose walking into a glass door at Nordstrom while I was in Tahoe! She's only safe when she's treasure hunting with me!  I'm taking her to get it fixed this morning.  Thanks for your patience with me.  I've been furiously working on my Prop House since I've been back and have made tremendous progress.  Lots of treasures are on their way, I promise!

What a wonderful complete post! You forgot that the Panama is made in Ecuador. I wore the ladies version on my honeymoon in England in 1978. How much is the doll's hat? I don't have more than a few old doll's hats, so I could use another. I have a picture of a new nose in case I break mine. Hope your mom is okay. She can still accompany you with tape on hers. You are going to feel really sad when the kid leaves. Expect it, and plan some diversions, like some new books, trips, or treats. Ann
