This is an incredible NOS (new old stock) winter hat individually tailored by Fisk of Chicago with original paper hang tag still attached ($7.95 hand written in pen).
Soft velvet in a fawn colored shade of brown is shaped into a folded over ringlet with harlequin netting that is cut longer in the back than the front, with two "Rose Marie" bows and a laurel of mink fur.
The velvet ring is 1.75" deep, 23" around the outside, and 20" around the inside.
Although this is new old stock, there are a few breaks in the netting; when it is scrunched up along the ring, it's not noticeable at all, but if you were to steam the veil and want to have it hang down on your forehead, the breaks would show. We are pricing lower accordingly.
Still, a very sweet little take off on the pillbox hat, perches nicely on a bouffant or beehive hair style, or sits to the back of the head very cutely.
By the way, there's an online inflation calculator, and the conversion of the price of this $7 hat to today is $57.48 (in 2017).
