This fabulous and dramatic 80s cocktail hat in a very 1940s tilt hat style is made of deep orange fur felt, with a contrasting black chin-length veil. The black veiling has been gathered into a small “topknot” at the back right side of the hat. The tall crown of the hat has a blocked-in, curved crease on its left side, and an oval head opening. The elastic strap that originally helped to secure the hat at its intended, tiled angle has lost its stretch, but I have left it in place, in case you want to use it to measure for a new strap. The crown is fairly deep, and does not really require a strap, but it may help to keep it in place if you have a smaller-sized head. This fun 80s-does-1940s style hat with veil is in very condition, its only issues the elastic band, and a small, faint area of discoloration from makeup at the inner front edge—unseen when worn.

Crown height: 4” in back and 2” in front
Crown diameter at head opening: 7” side to side and 8” front to back
Inner circumference: 21”
Label: none, but felt crown is stamped “Tally-Ho, Made in Poland, Genuine Velour”
