20’s Deadstock Oblong Red Straw Stick Hat Pin$35.00- Pins
Here's your chance to own a rare, never-worn 1920's hat pin from Mimi Millinery...
These pins are deadstock (new, never worn) from Mimi Millinery Pty Ltd in Australia -direct to me from the granddaughter and daughter of the original owners. Mimi Millinery was the largest Millinery supply house in the Southern Hemisphere. They sold everything, including but not limited to, vintage hoods, braids, veiling, flowers, French hat pins, and French straw. The company no longer exists but a few of these deadstock pieces exist from the 1920's -1940's and I have them for sale in my shop!
This pin is handmade, from France, and features an oblong shaped piece covered in pale red raffia straw. Atop this oblong piece is a smaller red ball, and there are two dangling red ball pieces at the bottom as well. The overall condition is excellent, deadstock (never sold, never worn), with mild signs of storage wear. Please see photographs for full details. Will come with a brand new rubber stopper for the tip. Also has original paper tag attached thats stamped 'made in France' and marked with '5025' in red marker on one side, and marked in pencil on the opposite side.
