This sensational vintage hat is THE ideal example of 1950's glamour.
The hat is made of a lot of super-luxe layers of divine black satin, creating a classically chic cloche-shape.
One side of the cap is embellished with a deep silver-tone brooch accented with glittering gray and moss-green rhinestones.
The opposite side features the original matching hat pin, with a shiny black tear-drop shaped top.
Inside, you will find stiff black netting which gives the hat its fantastic height and volume.
There is a small United Hatters Cap and Millinery Workers International Union tag stitched to the interior, though it is quite worn.
Though the hat exhibits one or two extremely light spots, and a very small amount of scuffing on the satin fabric (please see photos), it remains in outstanding vintage condition overall.
