Exceptional and Rare 1940s Metallic Gold Halo Hat with Dramatic Veil Drape


  • Product Description

      Long a standby in my hat collection, I'm finally letting others have a chance at this glamour thing. This 1940s statement hat will own the room. Made of two different types of metallic fabric, it's rich in texture. The base hat is a heavy mesh woven throughout with golden metallic threads, and the pleated details are a crisp lamé ribbon. Wide black mesh veiling, draped from the back of the hat. I've typically wrapped this as a draped scarf around the neck, at least for entrances. It has a sturdy buckram base and grosgrain trim.

      Marked Size: None present, sits at back of head and should fit all sizes 
      Interior Dimensions: 21.5"

      Label: Muller Modes
      Material: Variety Metallic Fabric, Buckram Lining, Grosgrain
      Condition: Very Good minus

      This hat is ready to wear. There is one notable break in the veiled draping to repair, and a bit of fray at the end of it. There's six moth chews or old pinholes, one with an associated spot at the front on the lamé, and four tiny ones at back. This is high drama, and the minor flaws do not stand out when worn.
