Jet black velvet pillbox hat with velvet rose accent at back of semi-sheer crown. Black veil. Heavy net interior with grosgrain band. Union made in the 1950s or early 60s. From the Jamieson estate.
Note: hat is big on both mannequins (especially Betty, the blonde). It is a pillbox style that sits more atop the head than covering it. See last photo, of Jackie O wearing a larger and less-formal version, for an approximation.
