This flat, open crown, black pillbox hat from the late 1950s or early 1960s pairs rich rayon velvet with black glass bead tassels—and an adorable, polka dotted veil! The black velvet circlet has tiny loops of beading attached all the way around, plus three tiny velvet bows. Small combs are sewn inside the crown, to help keep the hat in place when worn. Pillbox hats like this one were designed to be worn on the center back/top of the head, but feel free to tilt the hat if that’s what you prefer. (We have it shown here, placed as originally intended.) In excellent condition, this vintage hat has no issues to note, other than a bit of wrinkling to the veil from its long storage.
