Description

    Armstrong and Cator Company Hat Novelties. Their hats should have been all the rage in 1895 Baltimore, Maryland. Victorian graphics, ornate and colorful, in this case picturing the Spring selection of "what to wear" in hats for the sophisticated lady at the turn of the century. The paper sign, 28.5" by 38.5", pictures four ladies in period clothing with two cherubs in the lower right. The piece is in very good condition for a paper sign of this size and nature, with some light discoloration along the border and a tear that has been discreetly taped that runs 8" into the 6th row of hats. All is intact and certainly makes a great appearance. There are some folds as one might expect of a piece this size. Advertising of this type presenting our history in fashion for the Victorian era is particularly hard to find, especially in this size and material.
