Here for sale is a fantastic antique Milliner's hat stretcher. These are used for forming and stretching hats in to shape. The screw being used to expand the size of the hat block and hence the size of the hat. Now a stunning display piece for a shop or home interior. Fabulous patination to the antique wood which has built up over many years of wear and use. 


Some historical woodworm holes. Lots of signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
