This is a vintage embroidered velvet Swiss Alpine child's cap. It could also be used as cap for a large doll. The cap dates to the early 1960's and is made of black silk velvet and fully lined with striking red felt. The cap is embroidered along the top, back, and both sides. It has a velvet draw string chin strap. The floral embroidery is bright and vivid -in tones of white, red, green, and yellow. This gorgeous little cap was made in Switzerland and sent to me by my Aunt and Uncle, who frequently traveled there when I was a little girl. I have cherished it and taken great care of it over the years.
The hat is a classic Alpine shape and beautifully made.
Condition: Very fine vintage.
One slight, but stable pull on a blue flower. Please see last photo.
