Made for a sylvan faerie queen out for cocktails, this enchanting late 1950s into very early 1960s pixie toque bands the head with a spray of shimmery light brown silk leaves and flowers.
Structured by the wired frame underneath, the downward-hanging leaves sweep and curl around the face as if windswept, with the cluster of spread petalled flowers forming a kind of crowning jewel on top.
The hat has no label other than one that reads “Made in U.S.A.” Because the inner frame is slightly flexible, it will accommodate a range in head sizes. Exact measurements (inside the hat and following the "peaked" contour) are 13” from one side to the other and 8.25” from front to back. The height of the hat when worn is approximately 4.5”.
Excellent condition, with no flaws to note.
