1950's feathered cocktail hat. Styled as a cap with a bit of an asymmetrical front brim, right side front peak. Right side also holds a large array of curled black feathers. Interior is finished with the standard petersham ribbon.
Lovely condition, showing very little age or wear. Inside ribbon has a missing label.
Inner circumference is 21 inches but given the styling most any size head could wear this.
