Black antique Victorian hat constructed entirely by hand using silk and silk velvet.
The silk ribbon detailing on the top of this hat and around the side is absolutely breathtaking. Unfortunately, my camera is unable to capture the full magnitude of the work that has gone into making this velvet hat. You truly have to see it, to feel it and to examine the work, in real life, to fully comprehend the amazing workmanship that has gone into this hat. I promise you that when you put your hands onto this hat, you will be more than impressed with the quality and the minute detailing.
The silk ribbon work is superb!
The black velvet itself is flawless. There is the odd tiny bit of fraying at the ends of the silk velvet ribbons at the top of the hat, honestly though, it is far, far less than what one would reasonably expect from a Victorian fashion piece. The inside of the hat there are stray ends of thread but the structural integrity of this Victorian velvet hat remains solid.
Inner circumference of 19."
Victorian velvet hat with silk ribbon work has been made entirely by hand and is absolutely stunning.
