Vintage 1950s Dark Orange Wool Felt Hat with Birdcage Veil And Pearl Trim
Darling wool felt hat in rust orange, circa 1950s with a bit of netting embellished with faux pearls round the brim. The center of the hat comes to a soft point similar to the coolie hat styles of the era. There is no label but stamped inside it reads: Made in Czechoslovakia. Measures 19.5" round the inside grosgrain band.
Excellent vintage condition. The hat itself is pretty much perfect, and what a great color! The veiling is ok, but it does have some holes. Fortunately, as its meant to be sort of rolled up round the brim you can't see these when worn. The other thing to note is that the veiling is not stitched down. It comes together at the ends with these small button-like medallions, which are super cute, but are held to the hat itself with basic sewing pins. The pins are stuck through the hat. You can remove these and stitch the veil on if you wish, or just be careful when wearing this if you decide to just leave them pinned.
