Vintage 1940s 1950s Black Hat With Veil
Fun black bonnet style hat circa 1940s or 50s. Feels like a straw mesh base with a velvet ribbon round the brim and a velvet bow in back. There is dotted birdcage netting round the front and a long length if narrow netting down the back to use to tie under the chin. The brim is wired so you can shape it a bit how you like. Label reads: Mr. John Classic, New York Paris. Will ship flat as its crushable.
Excellent vintage condition. The hat itself and the velvet ribbon/bow are just about perfect. As is the narrow length of netting down the back. The only real issue to note is the veiling round the front. As you can see its mostly torn away and whats left is pretty tattered. Could easily be replaced or perhaps just removed. You could also just trim it back so the worst of the tattered bits would be gone leaving you a little bit round the brim.
Please note: This is a vintage, preworn and/or preloved item, and as such is one of a kind and not eligible for returns or refunds. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat.
