Vintage hat block- puzzle beret- millinery - vintage hat form

We were approached by a fellow vendor at the spring Red Potatoes market days event about making a custom lamp.

The item that she wanted made into a lamp was a 1955 vintage puzzle beret hat form.

She had some ideas, but was willing to defer to our creativity. Myriam, the one that makes all of our stuff look awesome, knew exactly the base that she wanted to use. My job was to make her vision work, and keep the integrity of the piece.

I decided to install two LED lights on the underside of the form, and hide the remote control module inside the wooden part. We painted the vintage candle stick lamp base black and sanded and stained the wooden mold.
