  WHIMSICAL PAIR OF FISH-SHAPED HATS, PROBABLY FOR THEATRICAL USE OR PARADES, CA 1920-40
Dimensions (inches): 30" x 17" x 8" base & 25" x 26" x 9" base
Description:
This fun pair of folk art fish-hats, made ca 1920, are carefully constructed of wire, fabric, and leather. Their brightly painted surfaces were obviously executed in the manner of someone who was a professional artist. I have never before seen anything similar in my experience with early folk art and I expect that they were produced by a theatrical costume company, either for the theater or for parade use.

Condition: There are minor to moderate bends and losses throughout, with accompanying paint loss.
