Dating to the early 1930's, expertly draped, small close fitting dusky lavender hued velvet turban is laced with gilt gold metallic silk ribbon (real silk, real gilt), and trimmed with a fabulous Flapper & Art Deco trimming of Plum-purple-wine colored, genuine double BIRD OF PARADISE PLUMAGE! Long swooping plumes are glossy and ethereal, tapering into fine hairlike fronds at the ends. I have not come across purple paradise plumes in many decades, and these have a deep wine purple shading. These bird of paradise feathers are now quite scarce, and no longer available. These are the plumage taken from the Greater Bird Of Paradise, and were once the rage for women's millinery. Perfect for wearing with your Downton Abbey evening and formal attire. All of the major aristocratic female characters on the show wore these plumes for evening wear, attaching them to diamante bandeau and tiara headdresses, or adding them to their formal hats and millinery. These feathers are heavenly. Super soft and fine, the ends of each plume seem to disappear as they get so delicate and move with every breeze. The plumes are gathered in a lover's knot of gild metallic ribbon fabric. Fully lined in a sheer black tulle type fabric. The turban and feathers are in very good condition, clean, no tears, no wear, no soiling...plumes have no shedding, lining is very good. Please see below for more condition details. Thank you and enjoy looking!

The house of Reboux was known for the very finest turbans, draped toques, and cloche hats. This hat is made of a fine and buttery soft velveteen, muted plum heather color, fully lined, and is a semi-structured hat, it is not stiff, it adapts to your head like a skullcap or cloche. I am not really positive as to how to place it on the head, and so I show it 2 ways. I like it with the plumes on the side for a more flapper look, but it also looks great with the plumes across the back, Edwardian style. The plumes almost look black at the very bottom, but are a deep dark purple. The silk label reads Reproduction, Caroline Reboux, 23 Rue de la Paix, Paris. Caroline passed away in 1927, but the millinery house carried on, and for a brief rime in the 1930s they allowed for adaptions and reproductions of their original millinery designs. This is NOT a copy or even an adaption, this is a replication of a Reboux Paris hat, made of the exact same materials, same colors, same pattern, and same trimmings as the Reboux original. Tagged size 22, it conforms to most heads and can be worn tilted, back or straight on the head. Not meant to be worn down on the face like a cloche, more like a soft turban toque. Thank you.

CONDITION is VERY GOOD. Shows some mild age but is overall very nice. Clean, no spotting or soiling, velveteen has no wear or tears and is soft and supple. Lining has no breaks or tears and is very clean. No stitching through the lining. Plumes are very good, lustrous and supple, no shedding, not dry or faded. Some color loss or mild flaking of the stems at the base, and 1 or 2 of the delicate frond ends might be missing, some of the tips have some light wear if you look really close, but it is not a real detraction. Still very beautiful. No moth damage. the gold metallic ribbon is excellent, no dryness or tears. The plumes are heavy and the hat is lightweight, and they are a bit droopy in back but you can always stitch them tighter if you wish, they are really fine as they are. Comes from a smoke free, pet free home and has been well stored. May show mild signs of age, but I have noted any flaws. Offered with a low opening offer and . Well preserved overall. Selling as found. No Returns if I miss some tiny thing, returns will be considered only if I have made some gross error in my description. Thank you.
