Vintage 1960s Amrose Fur Hat, Sold at Bonwit Teller, Philadelphia

Chinchilla fur is known to be one of the softest furs ever! This high fashion 1960's flower pot style hat is made from beautiful and plush chinchilla fur in shades of muted gray with rosey brown stripes. The fur is light on the ends with darker undertones. The crown is generous and rounded with a light gray outer hatband (multiple rows of top stitching are present on this hatband) which surrounds the base of the crown. There is a bow detail on the hatband at the back of the hat. The inner brim is made from the same gray material which appears to be possibly wool or a wool blend. The inner crown is lined with gray satin and there is an inner gray grosgrain hatband. This hat is an exquisite example of the quality items which were sold at Bonwit Teller. When winter winds blow, this hat will provide many years of warmth to the wearer.....as well as lovely vintage style!

Condition: Very Good

Several issues to mention.....at the back of the hat directly under the bow on the rim of the brim, there is a spot where the long nap of the fur is somewhat sparse....about an inch long. When the hat is being worn, this is not noticed at all. And, the fur when fluffed actually covers this area. This just appears to be an area that was probably natural to the fur and does not appear to be from any damage to the hat. And, there is some slight wear to the inner hatband....one small half inch area that needs to be re-sewn with a few stitches and the Amrose label shows some slight soil.
