Here is a gorgeous vintage hat with luxurious velvet and graceful, elegant colors.
As you can see, the hat is made of the highest-quality fur felt in a gorgeous, soft shade of light mauve.
The stylized tricorne shape features a flat crown with an ever-so-slightly upturned brim.
Divine layers of crimson-colored velvet are bunched and pleated around the top of the brim creating an elegant and textural look.
The interior of the hat remains unlined as it if often unnecessary to include a lining in fur hats of such exceptional quality.
There is a narrow ribbon of burgundy grosgrain that lines the inner-band. This is where you will find the original retailer's fabric label which reads "Allen's, Philadelphia & Germantown".
A smaller "Consumer Protection Label" is tucked behind this one and includes the size, "22 1/2", and reads "New York Creations".
A manufacturer's mark is imprinted in white and blue on the underside of the crown and reads "Merrimac, Fur Felt".
Best of all, a little black elastic band is attached to each side of the interior of the hat.
This will help keep the hat in place no matter how you choose to wear it.
The interior of the hat shows some minor wear and a few loose threads, while the exterior exhibits one or two teeny moth-bites. Overall, this gorgeous hat remains in very good vintage condition.
