Vintage '40s Black Velvet Tilt Hat~bird Of Paradise Feathers~world War Ii~nr:
This is a stunning vintage '40s black velvet tilt hat with 2 large "Bird of Paradise" feather trims. The feather trims measure approx. 15" long--they're beautiful--could also be used on another hat. I'm selling the hat "AS IS" due to pile loss--there are numerous spots on the velvet where the pile has come off--this can be seen--it's obvious. The hat can be worn by all head sizes because of the style--measures approx. 9" in diameter---turns up a bit on one side. . The hat has a stiff base and there's a back band to help secure it to one's head--the band has 4 black velvet bows on it. The label: Mabel Fisher, Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles.Condition: The hat's in fair/good condition--CLEAN--numerous spots on the velvet due to pile loss as previously mentioned. The Bird of Paradise trims are very good--they appear to have been added by a previous owner. There's just a bit of wear--a few fronds missing--the hairlike filaments that make up the body of the feather. There's also a bit make-up on the UNDERSIDE of the hat. Overall a lovely '40s tilt hat--CLEAN--can be used for parts--could also be restored using black velvet--if the buyer so chooses. Please email with questions and thank you for looking.
