This wacky floral 1960s hat is a style often called “lampshade” or “flowerpot”—and you can see why! The totally flower-covered, tall crown sits well up above the head when worn, with the narrow, downwards-curved brim framing the face. The mostly off-white and ivory fabric flowers are accented with a scattering of light orange blooms. Many of the flowers have tiny pearl centers. A wide band of avocado green velvet ribbon encircles the crown, tied with a big bow on the left side. The fabric flowers are attached over a stiff green lace/mesh base with a green grosgrain inner band and a narrow edging of green velvet around the outer edge of the brim (see photo of underside of hat). This absolutely fabulous 1960s hat is in very good condition; its only issue is some surface peeling of the tiny pearl flower centers. It is actually a deadstock vintage hat--meaning that it was never worn--with its original price/hangtag still attached. Be the first to wear this fun, flowery 60s chapeau!
