The padded “roll” center section of this 1930s black velvet hat creates the look of a turban, without the need to drape and tie anything! The rich black rayon velvet is embellished with rows of topstitching. The unpadded, curved front and back sections of the hat will hug the head to keep it in place at an angle, as shown. The hat is lined with rayon taffeta and has a wide inner band of grosgrain ribbon. This early 1930s hat may have been home made, but it is quite chic! It is in excellent condition.

Crown height: 4.5” from front edge to top of padded roll
