This is a listing for a set of one hat block stand and four round pillbox style hat blocks:
– the hat block stand measures 15cm (6 inches) in diameter, the shaft of the stand rises approximately 14cm (5,5 inches) high.
– the larger pillbox style hat block measures 17cm (6,7 inches) in diameter and stands 4 cm (1,6 inches) tall.
– the medium pillbox style hat block measures 13cm (5,1 inches) in diameter and stands 3 cm (1,2 inches) tall.

– the small size pillbox style fascinator hat block measures 8cm (3,1 inches) in diameter and stands 3 cm (1,2 inches) tall.
All the hat blocks come with a hollowed bottom for ease of pinning. The hole in the bottom is 2,5cm (about 1 inch) in diameter, so it will fit on most hat block stands. The blocks have a lacquer finish to protect the wood.
This set of hat blocks will be ideal for a milliner that has just started to create a collection of hat blocks as well as an experienced professional. These hat blocks will be perfect for making various felt, sinamay, straw and buckram pillbox or button style fascinators. We have attached pictures of fascinators that all were made using this type of hat blocks.
NOTE: this listing includes the hat blocks and hat block stand, the hats seen in the pictures are not included.
