Offered is a lovely vintage wedding veil. We have seen the style of the cap described as chapel or coronet. Both the cap and the trailing veil is in tulle. The cap retains its shape through a wired platform. It is decorated with 5 applique blossoms with faux pearl centers. The arch is 3 1/2" wide and 14" long on a 24" round form. The double veil is edged in 1" wide lace. From the top, the first veil is 26" long to the V point it forms at the back. The second, underlying, veil is 42" at the center back, but is actually longer -53"- on either side at the points. Note we are showing this placed at the front of the head and pushed back. We think it should be pushed back as shown in the first pic. One will definitely need combs or hair pins to anchor this. This appears to date from the '30's or '40's based on style. It is in good vintage condition, but Please Note: there are a couple dot holes on the right side along the long veil. There may be other small holes that we missed. This has not been cleaned. There is no staining and no odor. The veils will be folded for shipping. Original listing price $55 Item 2008e
