This is a fanciful 1960's chapeau made of black velvet with a black velvet crocheted crown and bands of black velvet surrounding the crown. It is further embellished with silk florets, black velvet leaves, and grosgrain ribbon bows. It had been made for Lord & Taylor and designed by "Duby". It measures 22" through 25" in circumference and does have some give to it. It is in excellent vintage condition.
