1930s Frank R. Jelleff Velvet Hat & Handbag Set
This lovely set is the perfect accessory to compliment and fall frock.
Fashioned in a soft chocolate brown velvet with an upturned brim, hat is fully lined and adorned with a beautiful tan velvet flocked rose.
The handbag also is crafted in the same chocolate brown velvet and comes with its original unused coin purse and hand mirror (still wrapped in its original paper). Purse is lined and is as clean as a tack. I don't think it has ever been used. It fastens with a metal zipper that is adorned with a faceted lucite cube pull.
Hat Size: 22
Height: 5.5" (bag itself) 11" (from center handle to bottom of bag)
Label: Frank R. Jelleff, Washington, DC
Condition: Very Good
While I believe this set has never been used, it does have some wear from storage. Bag has a few small spots on the corners where the velvet has rubbed against something. It also has two crushed spots on the body of the bag (See photos) Hat has similar rub wear along the edge of the brim. Velvet flower has a few small brown age spots. None of these flaws detract. Priced accordingly.
