Highest Couture Design Edwardian Floral Hat W Rich Florals Possibly Lucile
HIGHEST COUTURE DESIGN EDWARDIAN FLORAL HAT W RICH FLORALS – POSSIBLY LUCILE. DATING TO THE LATE EDWARDIAN ERA. THIS PIECE CAME OUT OF A CALIFORNIA MUSEUM DEACCESSION AND UNFORTUNATELY THE INNER SILK LINING IS ABSENT. SEVERAL THOUGHT THAT THIS PIECE COULD POSSIBLY BE LUCILE AND THE DESIGN IS DEFINITELY IN HER CALIBER. FASHIONED OF A STIFFENED BASE AND IS COVERED IN A GREY SILK CHIFFON WITH PIPING ALONG THE BRIM EDGE. THE BRIM IS TRIMMED IN SQUIGGLES OF HORSEHAIR WITH THE TOP OF THE HAT IN DYED FEATHERS THAT ARE APPLIED FLAT WITH FEATHERED TIPS IN SMALL WHITE BERRY LIKE DETAIL WITH SMALL MUSLIN FLOWERS THROUGHOUT THE FEATHER WORK. THE BACK OF THE HAT IS IN VERY DENSE WHITE PINK AND DARK PINK YELLOW CENTERED VELVET FLORALS WITH THE OCCASIONAL LARGER VELVET FLORAL. A SILK FAILLE MATCHING GREY RIBBON IS IN A LARGE BOW AND KNOT DETAIL IN THE REAR AND WEAVES THROUGH THE FLORALS WITH TWO TAILS DROPPING FROM THE BACK. LEFT BRIM EDGE HAS EVER SO SLIGHT BUFFED WEAR WITH THE SLIGHEST OF AGE COLOR SEEN TO A POINT OF THE GREY FAILLE RIBBON ON THE REAR AND ON THE RIGHT SIDE BRIM. PROBABLY THE MOST ROMANTIC HAT THAT WE HAVE EVER OFFERED. HEAD HOLE OPENING: 24. Our business name is ANTIQUE WARDROBE. We can be found online on other platforms as well. Antiquewardrobe_ as well as Antique-Wardrobe. And if asked to leave it on, we will. A mistake can happen… Vintage and antique items ARE NOT new items. Often for proper fit, hang, and wear ability, pieces will need to be altered and/or adding a hook or snap here or there, with a seam closure or strengthening needed. Vintage clothing is most often worn previously, and if old stock, often has slight imperfections from storage, a hint of color or odor. These are antique articles, having the age stated.. All flaws if any are painstakingly outlined. _gsrx_vers_1547 GS 9.4.2 (1547).
