Rendered in gorgeous white beaver fur, this hat takes on a simple, elegant dome shape and features an eye catching embellishment on one side.
It has wonderful personality and a definite couture style.
The decoration consists of matching beaver fur "petals" surrounded by shiny black faceted beads.
The interior edge is lined with a graceful ribbon of creamy grosgrain; here you can see the original silken hallmark tag is still attached and reads "Schiaparelli Paris" in bold pink script.
A hallmark that reads "Body Made in Italy, Corona" (Italy) has been printed on the crown interior.
Excluding only a very minuscule amount of wear, this beauty of a hat remains in great vintage condition.
It exemplifies all of the grace and elegance for which Elsa Schiaparelli's design are known.
Schiaparelli was among the elite of the women designers of her era. She broke all traditional design rules and created a look and style all her own.
Once Schiaparelli pieces are gone, they are gone. When they ceased operations, it was the end of her era.
Her pieces will only continue to increase in value and collectibility.
We take great pride in only finding the best quality of Schiaparelli hats - clean and without damage. We store them very carefully and take exceptional care in shipping.
We want your treasure to arrive to you in the best condition from our end.
