Rare 1920s Eagleknit Wool Cap | Milwaukee 20 1/2" Crown
Here we have a rare Eagleknit wool cap from the roaring 1920s by the Eagle Knitting Mills in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They nailed the cool and functional design 100 years ago. You'll win every snowball fight wearing this little battle-tested gem, and look good doing it. This beauty isn't for the big-headed humans like me, barely able to hold their head up. I measured a 20 1/2" crown, so we're in the 6 3/4 hat size. Either you or your kid will be the talk of the cold town.
The antique Eagleknit tag states:

The rare wool cap came out of an old farmhouse chest with a pair of antique ski pants. I can find old advertisements but the actual caps are borderline unicorns when it comes the rarity.
As stated above the crown of the wool cap measures 20 1/2". The cap is in very solid shape. I see no holes. The edge of the flap has some slight fraying. There is a slight discoloration on the rear left side (see pic). Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on the rare Eagleknit cap.
If you're looking for a design that'll turn their heads, look no further than the real deal.
