Late 1950s-Early 1960s Saks Fifth Avenue Millinery Salon Velvet Cocktail Hat

This chic black velvet cocktail hat is small in size, but packs a big punch with just the right dress! A cap style hat, it can be worn perched atop the head or slightly tilted to the's entirely up to the wearer's whim! The mass of black grosgrain ribbons attached to the very top of the hat gives height and elegance to pure simplicity. The inside is lined in black and there are two faux tortoiseshell combs, one on each side, to help secure the hat to the head. There is a black grosgrain ribbon inner hatband. Saks Fifth Avenue is synonymous with good quality and good taste.....and, style! This sweet hat deserves to wear that famed department store's label and truly shows that good things do often come in small packages!

Condition: Very Good

The black velvet is deep and rich...not faded at all. The inside of the hat is extremely clean. You can see where a hatpin was used to secure the hat leaving a few small pinholes in the label....and, I must admit, a sparkly clear rhinestone hatpin would be sensational on this hat! The black grosgrain ribbon has some slight fading....but, I believe the raw edges on the ribbon were original to the hat. This hat is ready for your next dressy evening affair!
