1950's Midnight Black Velvet Cocktail Hat With Curled Aigrette Feathers

Black velvet always looks "dressy" and ultra chic, no matter what form it may take! In this case, a lovely example of a cocktail or evening hat made from quality black velvet material and elegantly detailed with just the perfect amenities......curled black aigrette feathers and one lone clear rhinestone for a subtle touch of sparkle. The close fitting hat has a rounded crown that has four horizontal sections of velvet. There is a turned up brim at the front only......the back of the hat is cap like with no brim. The brim is turned under on the left side forming a small rolled area and the feathers are neatly tucked into this little pocket. Some of the feathers go upward into a graceful curl and several extend across the front brim and wearer's forehead. The inside of the hat is lined with black grosgrain material and has an inner black grosgrain ribbon hatband. It's hard to go wrong with black velvet..... it compliments any color and always adds that certain touch of class to any outfit.

Condition: Very Good

The black velvet is rich in color and not faded....soft to the touch. There may be some very slight pressure marks on the underside of the brim from storage. The feathers appear to be in very good condition and the inside of the hat is very clean. The label bears evidence to the fact that a hat pin was used to secure this lovely hat by a previous owner.....there are a few small pin holes in the label and the grosgrain hatband.
