Vintage 1950s Henri Bendel Navy Blue Straw Cap With Veil

The Black Velvet Emporium

Simple and classy navy blue straw cap type hat from the 1950s. Blue velvet trimmed bands goes round the crown and criss crosses on the sides. There is netting which obviously has some issues but could be replaced.   Measures 18" round the inside, but it seems this is one size fits most as its meant to sit atop the crown.  Label reads: Henri Bendel, New York.
Excellent vintage condition. To the crown itself. Theres nothing really to note there. The veil is pretty much toast though. I think, unless you are looking for a tattered look, that I'd simply remove it ( its only held on with a stitch or two) and either leave as is, or replace it with whatever you like. Priced just for the crown.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat.
