This piece is divine!
Made in the late 1930's or early 1940's it is made from inky black felt. A topper design it is meant to sit tilted on the right side of your head. A slouchy crown, the brim is trimmed with net and there is a large felt butterfly on the front of the piece which is decorated with coloured glass beads.
A truly iconic shaped piece of the era.
Because of the shape it will work on up to a 22" head. It doesn't sit fully on your head, just sits on top of it.
Butterfly measurements 4" x 3"
Height of brim in front 2.5"
Very good with some minor points to note;
- some breaks in the net
- the glass embellishments have discoloured over time
- some minor discolouration on the inner front band - not seen when worn
