This classic 1950s cocktail hat in black rayon velvet has a shallow crown that comes to a small point on the right side, and a dramatic, curved “horn” over the left ear. The plush black velvet is flat and smooth over the center of the crown, and gathered/twisted into a sculptural accent around the wired edges of the hat. Because the edges of the hat’s crown are wired, it expands to hug the head gently when worn, and should fit well for a variety of head sizes. It is lined with black organza fabric (rayon, I think). This dramatic black velvet 1950s hat is in excellent condition, with no flaws to note.

Crown: 10” from side to side and 7” across center, from front to back
(Additional 5.5” of length at curved side section)
Label: none
