Striking black straw picture hat in a mushroom shape with all over layered rows of black horsehair ribbon designer by DYNASTY millinery designer B MICHAEL. B Michael got his start designing for all the elegant women stars on the DYNASTY TV series in the 1980's. He is now designing elegant women's fashion in addition to his millinery collection.
The hat curves down on the sides as a mushroom. The straw is flexible. If you want to add to this hat you will find a large variety of vintage millinery flowers and a collection of elegant beaded appliques in my shop. For drama just picture my large butterfly applique sewn on this hat. B Michael did have a hat in his collection with a similar butterfly applique.
The hat is in very good vintage condition. There is a short piece of wire from the rim of the hat sticking out. I will leave it up to the buyer to cut it off.
Here are the measurements...
HEAD SIZE...20.5"....I would suggest using a hat pin. I do offer vintage pearl tipped hat pins in new condition.
The last two photos shows the beige straw picture hat in a similar style by B Michael which can be viewed in my shop.
