1940s hat of black wool with a vivid hot pink band around the crown and black floral appliques and decorative brass button centers. Very wide matching pink grosgrain ribbon creates a huge flourish on one side, balancing the shape of the tucked top of the crown. A saucy vintage tilt hat- an asymmetric hat to be worn at a tilt. Only label is “adjustable” (not clear how), and maker along with content of felt is imprinted on inner top of crown as is characteristic for vintage wool hats. Has an elastic cord for securing on the head, but might we suggest a hat pin or two, instead.

Please note: this is a hat to rest on the top of your head, not to pull down to fit around it. Think Vivienne Westwood, My Fair Lady, and Victorian streetwalkers – all in the best way, of course. See more lovely images and purchase this vintage tilt hat.
