This is a very stylish piece which is perfect for an evening out.
Made in the late 1930s from inky black fur felt, it is meant to sit on the side of your head, tilted to one side, and has a pretty felt trim in the back to help keep it in place. The crown is decorated with black sequins, each individually sewn on, and the back section is decorated with black sequin braid.
It is a small hat and will work on a 21" head, but no bigger.
Depth of crown in the front 3 1/2"
Depth of crown in the back 5 3/4"
Diameter on the top 5.5"
Very good, nice clean condition. Minor points to note;
- on close inspection there are 4 single sequins missing on the crown
- on close inspection you can see some gaps in the sequin brain
