A wonderful example of a little black hat for the sophisticated woman in the 1940's. To complete the look, it would have probably been worn with a smart cocktail or evening dress, complete with black gloves. Veils always added an aura of mystic which is missing from the modern woman of today.
The black net veil is in perfect condition - no holes, usually the veils do not survive. The veil is gathered into a small bow on the back of the brim. There is a black ribbon and elastic back strap to hold the hat on the head. The velvet is in very good condition, there is one small slightly lighter spot on top - see picture.
The brim is 3" wide. Veil from edge of brim to bottom below chin is 8". There is a label that reads: Size is 22, New York.
In excellent condition. As always, my items are clean and smoke free.
