Classic 1960s veil hat, trimmed with two large faux bows at the top, and a flock of velveteen birds around the wearer's head!
We've never seen one of these whimsys with birds as the design element...leaves, lots of dots...but never birds!
This measures 4.5" from hem at back, up seam, to faux bows.
29" around hem
This is in excellent condition with no holes or tears in the harlequin netting.
The netting is crisp, so it's probably nylon.
This does have a center back seam.
While we were photographing this, we temporarily placed it on top of a green turban hat and realized it looked REALLY good worn with a hat: it showed it's details really well! so, we're including an image of it on a hat; the hat is not included.
Oh, the color: the photo taken on our gray floor: it looks navy blue, however, on our mannequins, it looks black. If it is blue, it is a very dark, deep, rich navy blue. Or... it's black.
