Navy blue plaid-textured lightweight fabric makes for a stylish late 1950s turban style hat, by milliner Hattie Carnegie. The silk or rayon and silk blend fabric crown is stitched into an asymmetrical shape that sits up high on the head. It is tallest on the right and tilts over the forehead when worn, on that side. The tall crown is gathered into ridges or pleats at the back and left side. Designed to sit tilted on the head, as shown, the hat’s crown is too shallow to pull down lower, and it is lined with several layers of navy tulle. In very good condition, this circa late 1950s or very early 1960s turban-style hat by Hattie Carnegie has some wear to the surface of the label, a few tiny picks in the surface of the fabric, and a bit of discoloration to the front of the inner grosgrain band from makeup.
