    I bought this hat at the Goodwill Store, and I loved it because it was old and in good condition. I was just attracted to it. I did some reasarch on it on the computer, and cannot find this particular hat. Has anyone seen one like it? I know the designer has lots of hats out with very different designs, and a lot of them are still around, but just wondering about this one. It has a serial number in it and says body made in Italy and serial number says Union Made. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      I have several Evelyn Varon hats in my collection. She is among my top 4 favorite milliners - I would hate to say which one is my favorite. Evelyn was a French milliner whose designs were so popular that they were copied in the U.S. A March 11, 1914 issue of the Evening Post Page of Wanamaker News reports that the store was offering copies of hats designed by Parisian milliners Suzanne Talbot, Evelyn Varon, Jeanne Duc, Caroline Reboux and Paul Poiret. The copies that were priced the highest were both of copies of Evelyn Varon designs ($25 and $38). She designed costumes for the 1922 Broadway play "Pins and Needles."

      Evelyn Varon was very creative. Her variations on common hat types were always unique. I think your hat is a variation on the flowerpot or helmet, popular in the 1960s. My favorite Evelyn Varon in my collection is the black platter type dish covered in marabou feathers, pictured here: http://brendagrantland.com/gallery/Dishhat/97a

      Use the forward and back arrows to see other views of this hat. Evelyn was a genius.

I believe she lived in New York during World War I.
