Inspiration: Doll House From A Chest of Drawers

Woman's 6.75" Doll Hat by Bes-Ben, early 1930s. Bes-Ben was started by Benjamin B. Green-field (1897-1989) and his sister Bessie in 1920 in Chicago. Known for elaborate and creative themed hats, Bes-Ben hats were pretty much mainstream until World War II.

Such creativity did not come cheap; the average price for a Bes-Ben hat in the 1940s was $ 50.
