Hat height: 6” tall at center back of ruffle trim / front of hat is flat to forehead
Inner circumference of crown: 21”
Label: André Canadian Hat, Montreal, Canada
This off-white or ivory rayon velvet 1980s-does 1940s style cocktail or tilt hat features a curved, forward-tilting crown, adorned at the back with a large, sheer nylon “horsehair” ruffle and a spray of fabulous feathers! The soft, fluffy feathers are tucked into the ruffle on 3 sides (right, left and back). The chin-length veil creates an air of elegant mystery. Extra veiling at the center back of the hat is gathered beneath the stiff nylon ruffle, lifting it away from the crown a bit. The hat’s velvet crown is lined with white lace, and it is labeled “André Canadian Hat Montreal Canada”. The rounded crown of the hat has a few light marks in its surface/pile, possibly from storage. Also, the texture of the lace lining is somewhat visible on the velvet surface. There are no other issues, and the hat is in very good condition. It would be a unique headpiece and veil choice for a bride (wedding, rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or shower) or for wearing to an event like a cocktail or holiday party—or whenever fun and festive hats are worn! This 80s cocktail hat channels the dramatic style of a 1940s or early 1950s hat to perfection!
