New Blocks

New designs recently added to our catalogue.

FB66 – Fascinator Block


A head band style block with a central ridge running right round the centre.

Ex VAT £79.17

FB73 Saucer Block


A saucer block with presser and string groove included. The presser for this block is a head sizes oval dome which means the centre of the hat will fit the head well rather than just perching like many others do. The small legs on the block allow room for the presser to sit inside without touching the work surface.

Ex VAT £210

A head sized version of the vintage small crown CB206.

BB129 Brim Block


A stunning block made from pictures of 1940’s Parisian hats, these are not head fitting hats but ones that perch on the head so are suitable for any head size. The crown platform also allows any of our vintage small crowns to be used with it but the two crowns pictured here were made specially for the brim from the original pictures.

Ex VAT £170.83

CB206 Vintage Small Crown Block


A crown block for the vintage small brim BB129 or any of the other vintage small brims. Pictured with an optional extra collar for blocking separately to the brim.

A crown block for the vintage small brim BB129 or any of the other vintage small brims. Pictured with an optional extra collar for blocking separately to the brim.

  • A personal service

    Dedicated to providing you with the best hat blocks you can buy - here at Guy Morse-Brown, our focus is firmly on working with you to make your own personal creations.

    To make things with your hands is a fundamental part of human nature and whether it is the weaver, the felt maker, the block maker, or you the milliner, we are all part of a process that culminates in something that is more than just an object to admire - it is a statement, an expression that enriches the life of the wearer and creator alike.

    We feel that the parts of the process shouldn't be completely separated so we want to work with you to enable us both to share in it all. For that reason you won't find online ordering here on our website but you will find a huge range that shows that almost anything is possible. It's too simple to just add products to a cart; we want to keep alive the personal communication between block maker and milliner that used to be so essential. Get in touch with us and share your ideas, let us know what you want to make and we're ready to serve.

    They are almost too beautiful to use.

    I'm more than happy- everything is just perfect. I've worked on many different blocks but I think those are the best quality I've ever seen and now I feel like I've just got an early birthday gift :). Thank You very much!
