Rare And Wonderful French Antique Doll Hat . Gilt "l'espiesgle" On Band:
This is a wonderful and rare French beret with “L’ESPIEGLE” in gold on the band. It may be connected to L’Espiegle Lili, who was an early French cartoon character. Espiegle means mischievous, impish in French. This would be super cute on a French doll!
This hat is made of navy blue wool which is lined in cotton. There is a wool band across the top with a red silk pompom in the center. There is no moth damage, but the hanging ribbon is fragile, with some fiber loss. Still, it is in wonderful condition.
Its opening measures approximately 3 7/8” in diameter and 11” in circumference. It is 5 ½” across the top.
Please study my photos and great response carefully; as I only offer refunds if I have missed something that would greatly affect the value.
