Vintage 40s Hat Sculptural Black Felt With Feathers
From the 1940s, possibly a bit earlier, a black fur felt hat with sculptural design and a bouquet of lush, brown feathers to frame your face. Secure it with the strap which, contrary to what 5-year-old party goers might insist, belongs beneath your hair, at the back. From my personal collection. Ella Buchanan Gunn, Atlanta — I found ads for this label from November 1930 through August 1947, with Gunn’s obituary appearing in the 21 May 1951 Atlanta Constitution, noting she’d been ill for about 5 years. Also, the surname Ruth may be a misspelling of Routh. Merrimac — makers of hats and hat bodies (from which milliners could fashion their own designs), from the 1860s through the 1950s. Fur felt (very smooth and soft), feathers. No flaws to note. 21″/53cm around inner grosgrain band crown is about 3″/7.5cm tall, and soft (hat sits fairly high on the head) brim varies from 1″/2.5cm at back to 3.25″/8.25cm at the pointed sections.
