Vintage late 1940’s to early 1950’s orange velvet & straw saucer beach sun hat
Stay safe from the sun, while looking cool and chic, in this vintage late 40’s – early 50’s hat.. This amazing hat has a super wide, hand-stitched woven straw brim!! The cap of hat is made of a colorful pumpkin orange rayon velvet. The underside features velvet-covered wire prongs which can be manipulated to fit different size and shape heads! Label reads’Bess Williams, Millinery at Albert’s’. (Unfortunately, I could not find any info online about either Bess Williams or Albert’s shop). Overall condition is excellent, almost mint, with some light soiling & wear to velvet-covered prongs (see last 2 pics) but straw is in near mint condition with no flaws to note. 4 width of brim at narrowest portion. 6 width of brim at sides. Just over 6 width of brim at widest/front portion. 6 width between prongs at points. Feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries! Proud member of the Vintage Fashion Guild.
