Circa 1920 soft black panné velvet hat in a modified tricorne shape features a shirred “off the face” brim, gently rolled up all around and pinned at center front, with a copper/green/gold metallic braid “buckle” for ornament. It has a roomy, oval crown and black silk lining with little bow at the back.

Tricornes, bicornes, and their many variations were popular from the late teens through the early 1920s, as were “off-the-face” hats with brims that turned up in front (though they still sat low on the head by modern standards). And black velvet—whether silk, plush, or panne—was widespread and not limited to mourning, evening, or even necessarily tailored wear; one August 1921 millinery ad boasts of its array of “soft velvet hats in delightfully odd shapes, cleverly ornamented; becoming and useful and so practical for general wear.” Photo #9 shows a selection of hats from the Franklin Simon catalog of 1923 in silhouettes similar to this one.

Measuring inner circumference 23”, the hat has a crown depth of 3.5”, a side brim width of 4”, and a diameter of 10”.

Very good condition, with minor rubbing to the velvet nap around the top “rim” of the crown.
