    Wow - really nice. In spite of the smocks being 'relatively' common these hoods a rather difficult to come by. Always nice to see a sealed pattern example.

    Any more items from the era?

    These are for the 52 pattern and 60 pattern OG smocks. For that reason alone (as there were many of those types produced) I cannot work out why the hoods are so scarce...

    I have a couple of examples of the size 1 and 2 - both made by John Hammond & Co in the early 50's - but had to spend a long time searching for them...

    The size 2 hood fits the size 3,6,8 and 9 size smocks. These seem even harder to come by. If you are going to own one however a sealed pattern is as good as it gets!

    I love the "U.S.A. Comparative Sizes" bit down at the bottom. I don't think I've seen anything like that before!
