Jack McConnell is considered to be one of the most creative milliners of the 20th century. His incredible feathered hats are perhaps his most acclaimed and have been included in countless museum exhibitions. Worn by celebrities, Jack McConnell hats were collected by such style icons as Joan Crawford and Lana Turner. Because of the innate fragility of feathers, finding a feathered McConnell hat in excellent condition is rare and makes these hats very sought after by collectors. We can easily imagine this hat being worn on stage by Lady Gaga.
This hat is the most gorgeous shade of emerald green. In the provided photographs we show the feathers illuminated in bright light to best represent the texture and volume of the plumage. The wool felt hat body is a rich emerald and is sculpted in a genius way with a slight tilt. The top is indented with a great mass of lush green feathers cascading out and around the right side of the hat. These feathers have been perfectly arranged as a sculpture with a single clear rhinestone expertly placed here and there, drawing the eye around the hat. Around the brim runs a chain of clear rhinestones that give the hat a total star appearance.
This hat has been very well kept and we believe that it was probably rarely if ever worn, as the inside of the hat including the inner grosgrain band and tag are pristine.
This hat will be shipped in a large, solid round hat box (not the original) where it will be packed with the utmost care and then will be packed into another shipping box.
