Tongue-in-chic, this vintage early 1960s half hat features a trompe l’oeil rose, made of organza-topped pink lamé petals sewn to a wired net frame.

“Petal half hats” were very popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s, often as bridal or bridal party headwear, and the playfully yet romantically heart-shaped frame supporting this one makes it even more delightful. (Photo #6 shows a sampling of petal or flower half hats dating from 1959 through 1963).

No manufacturers label, but this artful creation appears to be the work of an experienced milliner.

Flexible, one-size frame measures 7” center front to back and 8” side to side; with the “petals” factored in, diameter is closer to 10” in both directions. The height of the flower is approximately 5” in the center.

Excellent condition, though the new owner may wish to steam the petals into a different shape than I have!
