Early 20s Gerould Nutmeg Velvet Cloche w/Blue Devore Trim
The seashells, which appear to be made of celluloid or a similar early plastic, are sewn in a triangular array just below a half-bow like tab of the devore. The ample folds of the velvet are pleated and tucked artfully around the brim, which like the very top of the crown is structured not with by a wire frame but with a firm, flexible material; remainder of the hat is unstructured.
Lined in black silk with a tiny bow to indicate the back, the hat is labelled "Gerould, 449 Fifth Avenue, New York London Paris". With a crown height of 3 ½", it measures 12" from side to side, 10" from front to back and 23" just inside the brim.
Very good to excellent condition, clean and sturdy with rubbing to the velvet folds under the brim (see photo #7) and one spot where the lining will need to be retacked.
