About

Bes Ben was a Depression and World War II era brother/sister duo in Chicago, most storied during the 40's. Known from trimming their hats with a bizarre assortment of novelty items, Bes-Ben continues to fascinate serious hat collectors.

Bes-Ben was renown for being very expensive, with prices ranging from $37-$1000 at a time when the average hat was selling for $2. Very sought after by collectors for rarity and uniqueness. This American designer truly sought to bring cheer during trying historical times.

This is a hat that will stand out in your collection. A simple cap of slate blue wool felt sits close to the head. This cap is adorned with a lovely multi-color assortment of luxe feather pom poms that drape flatteringly around the face.
