This vintage Schiaparelli dark brown fur hat looks like mink (definitely real fur). It a very deep, rich shade of brown with fine hairs that extend up a bit past 1 cm over a thick nap. This has a wide brim (4 inches wide center front; 2.5 inches wide center back) that attractively frames your face. Its forgiving inner brim and crown allows you to chose how far you want to pull it down towards your ears (I can pull it down to cover all but the very tips of my earlobes). A grosgrain black ribbon goes around the outer brim, ending in bow in the back. For those of you residing in cold country, this will be your favorite winter hat for both its style and warmth!
Approximate Measurements: Circumference of Inner Brim: 24.5 inches. Circumference of Outer Edge: 36 inches. Height of Crown: 5 Inches
Condition: It is in excellent vintage condition. This did not come with a hat box. Please review all the photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description. Some photos show sunspots - the actual fur is has no discoloration or bare spots.
Label: The “Schiaparelli” name is seen throughout the black lining on the inside of the hat. Elsa Schiaparelli was famous for her couture clothes and hats before she expanded into jewelry.
