This simple yet elegant winter hat is has a slightly flared brim and features exquisite beading on a dark espresso brown felt base.
The beads appear golden in our images, but in real life, they appear more of a rich copper color.
Label: Vera Whistler Original (looks like an earlier label than some we’ve seen dated as 1960s)
Measures 21.25” around sweatband
The brim widens slightly from 1.25” deep in the center back to 1.5” in center front.
11.5” up and over the top.
Excellent, outstanding condition.
Unfortunately, not much has been written about Vera Whistler, but we found that she produced hats that were “well made and a bit outrageous, and that she did do some fairly high fashion and extreme hats, but she also designed for the more conservative tastes” (thanks to our fellow VFG hat specialist, Rue de la Paix).
This is a gorgeous, sleek hat, and has a very modern look to it.
