Vintage 1950s Black Velvet Fascinator Hat With Jet Beads

The Black Velvet Emporium

Charming black velvet topper cocktail hat from the 1950s. Interesting sloping shape towards one side, perfect for those sideswept styles of the 40s and 50s. There is no designer label but there is a size label that says Medium. The inside is lined in acetate with a grosgrain ribbon round the inside. The front, I guess you'd call it a brim or bill, is embellished with small black beads that look like jet to me. It ahs a slightly squashy shape which I personally like, but I believe it could be steamed to be more smooth through the crown as well if you prefer. Will ship flat.

Excellent vintage condition. Nothing to note.
