This 1960s whimsy hat perches on top of the head; a decorative cocktail hat, sometimes called a fascinator in the current parlance. The eye-length veil is suspended from an adorable cluster of black rayon velvet cherries, with flat bow in the center. These extra-small hats of the 1960s represent the last gasp of mid-century millinery, before the hat-wearing behavior of the general public changed forever, sometime around the 1970s. Originally designed to sit at the center/top of the head, as shown, you may angle the cherries cluster differently, if you prefer a more asymmetrical look. This darling 1960s cocktail hat is in excellent condition, appearing barely worn, if at all.
