This dramatic, tall crowned turban hat circa 1960s is sculpted of rich black rayon velvet and trimmed with a sparkling rhinestone ornament at the center front. Although definitely dating from the 60s, it reminds me of late 1930s or 1940s turban-style hats, with similar shapes--and heights! The velvet fabric is draped and gathered over an asymmetrical, turban-shaped base that fits closely to the head, while the upper half of the hat is a slightly narrower, hollow or inverted, wired tube of velvet, for added height and drama! The hat base is lined with mint green brocade fabric. This fabulous, tall turban hat is in excellent condition.
