Goofy and fun, this old felt beanie is a coveted piece of advertising history. Very popular in the 1930s-1940s, kids and adults enjoyed adding charms and buttons to make their hat unique. The weirder the better.
Made of soft felt as an advertising give-away for W.R. Boyer, Pharmacist, this little skull cap has enjoyed his life immensely. This specimen is adorned with political pin-backs, buttons, jewelry and even a pair of doll shoes which dangle from the crown. We sure wish we knew the origin and owner of this fun little hat (and could find W.R. Boyer!!)
Often called 'jughead beanies', sometimes they were cut from the crown of an old hat and embellished with charms, including those from Cracker Jacks.
Oh. If you find one at a thrift store or estate sale - grab it! (and call me:)

Good condition with wear consistent with age and use. Stitching is tight. Charms show various levels of wear. The fabric content is unknown but very soft. 'WL' is printed on the front, and inside 'Made Expressly for W.R. Boyer Pharmacist'.
