This simple, elegant toque is made of a deep chestnut brown velvet in a softer, curvier pillbox shape.
This measures 21.25" around the inside rim.
It is 2" deep in back, tapering to only 1 1/4" deep in front, giving it a bit of a curve, as mentioned.
In excellent condition; the interior is pristine, the exterior is freshly brushed and ready to wear.
It reminds us of the base for a ren faire or medieval sort of fairy tale hat...we love it's simplicity, but it would be adorable with one or more vintage pins lined along it's edges, too.
Estimated possibly 1960s vintage when pillbox hats were the rage, but could be from as early as the 30s when close, sculpted hats like these were in vogue, as well.
Although we've listed this as a regular hat, this could certainly enhance a Halloween costume for a fair young maiden, or as part of a Game of Thrones sort of costume...
