These hair nets are of U.S. origin and date before 1997. We believe that they date closer to the 1960-ish period. According to their envelope packaging, they were sold by either: "J.J. Newberry" (stores), or "F.W. Woolworth", or "Hested and Lee Stores" (do you remember them?). These are common, civilian woman's hair nets, but are ultra cool as they are still in their original period packaging. These nets were often worn by military women to keep their hair tucked in place under their service hats/caps. While not very becoming to the eye, they were often a necessity for an active military women who had a full coif of hair to tuck under her hat. These hair nets appear to be in MINT CONDITION, but we have not inspected them closely. Their tissue paper packing also looks PERFECT too. Their outer envelope packing varies in condition from package to package, between VERY GOOD to GOOD CONDITION for all. We will not separate them out for condition requests as it's first come, first serve, here at the ol'e fort.

Comments from the Curator:

It is the little details like these vintage hair nets that really make and complete a display/exhibit. To properly display a military "goil", their hair needs to be properly tucked in according to regulations. And hair nets were often the solution. While the packaging shows ladies of the 1960-ish period, they could possibly date a little later, but we doubt that. Both J.J. Newberry and F.W. Woolworth cosed many stores in the 1960's, their last main stores managed to make it up into the 1997-ish period. We doubt that these nets are of the 1990's as their 1960-ish style packaging would not have sold well in those more modern later years. Here is a chance to acquire a little, insignificant, but Oh-So necessary uniform detail item, that invariably are always missing and overlooked by collectors today.
