Vintage Made in Japan Hat Decoration Lapel Corsage Velvet Violets with Pinback
Dating anywhere from the 1930s to the 1960s, may I offer this Japanese spray of florals - a light purple and lavender spray of violets with 3 green canvas leaves. The spray is held together with florist's tape and has a pinback for applying it to a hat or coat lapel.
Condition: Floppy! This is an old spray so it has been used. I notice that a couple of the petals have been glued to the leaves to "strengthen" them - this helps in the "look" of the piece. The florals show a patina of age and there are some "fuzzies" along the edges.
Size: 4-1/2" high x 2-3/4".
Final Comments: Utterly adorable and SO hard to find these days. I understand that vintage fabric corsages are the rage in Japan right now. Honestly, I can see why - the appeal is charming!
