Is there anything softer than Chinchilla fur? Possibly Down, but not much else! Here is a darling Pillbox fur hat that incorporates an interesting pattern by using V-shaped pieces of Chinchilla. The colors of the fur are silvery with shades of dark and light grays and touches of white fur, too. The hat is totally lined in black and has two small combs attached to each side of the hat to assure the security of the hat upon the head. There is an inner black grosgrain ribbon hatband. And, it bears the Saks Fifth Avenue Label....enough said about style and chic!!!
P.S. A very similar hat is referenced in Vintage Hats & Bonnets, 1770-1970 written by Susan Langley, page 373.
This hat has seen very little, if any wear. There are no issues to note.
Label: Saks Fifth Avenue
Size: None Present
Height of Hat: 3 ½"
Total Circumference of Inner Grosgrain Hatband: 20 ½"
