40s Black Taffeta Hat

SKU: 00713-003
Sorry, this item has sold.

From the 1940s, a sculptural hat in jet black taffeta with a pale peach silk rose nestled in the front fold. Four-part soft crown. The underside of the brim features concentric circles resembling quilting. Wear it at whatever angle suits you. That's the only "rule" with hats.

Labels: Schleisner Co. (upscale clothing store, 1906-1962), New York Creation (union label used 1941-'55)

Materials: Taffeta (probably rayon), grograin inner band, silk floral

Dimensions: size 22, will fit just about any head, as it's a shallow crown and can be positioned however you prefer. Brim at widest point (front) is 3"/7.5cm deep. Overall, very approximately 10.5"/26.5cm front to back, 9.5"/24cm side to side.

Condition: Good, with a few spots scattered here and there (inconspicuous). Pin was already in it, and is a bit rusty (though easily removable). We've given it the museum freezer treatment, but haven't actually cleaned it. Price reflects the minor imperfections.
