1940s Roberta Bernays Velvet Dutch Hat
Often times viewed as a costume piece, the Dutch hat has been rising and falling out of popular fashion for decades. Crocheted dutch caps were en vogue in the 1920s. Jean Harlow famously sported this winged chapeau in the 1930s. With the avant-garde hat movement of the 1940s, this traditional style was popular once more.
This stiff velvet topper is a wonder example of a chic and sophisticate Dutch hat. It's beautiful curves and winged sides flatter most face shapes. A large wired velvet bow adorns the front. Crown is wired and sits atop of the head.
Condition: Very Good
The buckram foundation in the crown is slightly wrinkled, however, it is not noticeable when the hat is worn. There are a few tiny areas of slight wear to the velvet around the edge. Priced accordingly.
