Glamorous Bonwit Teller 1960s Black Velvet Hat

Dramatic glamour paired with timeless elegance? This divine vintage hat MUST be a Bonwit Teller.

Founded in 1895, Bonwit Teller would provide New York City with affordable, chic clothing and accessories for years to come, carrying specialty lines by designers like Henri Bendel, Christian Dior and others.

This gorgeous vintage beauty dates from the 1960's and features a uniqueness and daring style that makes it an absolute must-have for the discerning collector.

It boasts a stylized fez-shape with the added elegance of being made of luxurious black velvet.

The hat stands straight up from the brim and tapers ever-so-slightly to the crown.

The interior is lined with luxe black satin while the inner-band is lined with a wide ribbon of black grosgrain.

Here is where you will find the original retailer and designer's labels.

The first label reads "Madcaps, New York, Paris" while the neighboring label reads "Bonwit Teller Philadelphia".

Showing almost no signs of its age, this sensational hat remains in outstanding vintage condition.
