Tan Tuck Pointed Hat

Inside Circumference 22"

This is an amazing vintage Mary Sach's hat from the Art Deco or 1930's period.
It is very reminiscent of a Peter Pan style hat which came out a bit later. It
really is wonderful and looks quite stunning worn.

The color is a dark tan or camel color with circular gathered darting and seam
tucks to make up the entire hat. Quite an amazing feat from a seamstress point
of view.

This hat is in very nice vintage condition and retains the original Mary Sachs
label as pictured. I've included some history below on Mary Sachs who was quite
the fashion icon for some time in Pennsylvania.

On any given day, hundreds of people walk past 208 N. Third St. in Harrisburg.
With its large red canopy extending from the door, this three-story, gray stone
building with the name “Mary Sachs” carved into the façade was once home to one
of the city’s premiere shopping experiences. This week’s Pennsylvania Treasure,
selected by CAP curator Carol Buck, is a black, peau-de-soie sleeveless evening
dress and matching coat with rhinestone accents. Sachs sold the dress in either
her Harrisburg or Lancaster store, according to the tag inside the garment.
This dress will be on display this fall at The State Museum as part of the
upcoming Pennsylvania Icons exhibit.

At 4-years-old, Sachs emigrated from Lithuania to the United States with her
family. One of her first jobs was in retail. Sachs was a born saleswoman.

On Sept. 6, 1918, Sachs opened her first retail store in Harrisburg. The
business sold upscale women’s clothing and proved successful enough to justify
Sachs opening a second location in Lancaster in 1922 and another store in
Reading five years later. In 1931, her Harrisburg store was destroyed in a
fire, forcing Sachs to relocate temporarily so that she could continue to serve
her customers. Eventually, local architects Lawrie & Green rebuilt her store at
208 N. Third St. in Harrisburg. Later, that same architectural firm would go on
to design the Pennsylvania State Farm Show Building in 1939 and The State
Museum of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State Archives complex in 1964.

Sachs purchased her own inventory, a task that required frequent trips to New
York City. Despite her packed travel schedule and already heavy workload, Sachs
found time to expand her existing store in Harrisburg to include women’s shoes,
lingerie, cosmetics, a beauty shop, costume jewelry, a paper shop and Blum’s
Candy. Her stores eventually sold merchandise for men and children. Expert
tailors were on site for alterations and valet parking was provided so that
shoppers were not be inconvenienced by having to drop another nickel in the
parking meter. People would often ask Sachs to consider opening a chain of
stores. Her response was always the same: “I am too individual in my approach
to fashion to be a link in a chain.” Sachs felt her customers wanted the
intimate, personal attention she provided them in her handful of stores.

With more than $2 million in retail sales, Mary Sachs did well for herself
financially throughout her career. She had a great affinity for the city she
called home.

“I have a fierce attachment to Harrisburg…It is my town and I love it,” she

Sachs rooted herself in Harrisburg and bought an expansive home at 2917 N.
Front St. Her success and generosity earned her the reputation of being a great
philanthropist. She gave money to many charitable organizations, many of which
encouraged those who shared her Jewish faith. She was vice president of the
Jewish Community Center in Harrisburg. Sachs served as the co-founder of the
Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University in New York and
generously donated to Boy Scouts of America, the Girl Scouts of America and
many other organizations.

Eleanor Roosevelt, a personal friend of Sachs, said of the Harrisburg
entrepreneur : “She was hospitable, warm and has a philosophy that filled me
with admiration….I surmise she has been inspiring others through her own
generosity to be as generous as possible. However I imagine few can ever match
