Was $148, Now $110!
A Collectable Vintage Hat by Frances & Walter Nelkin.
A great statement piece to add to your collection.
Nelkin, known for their hats in the 40's/50's,
when women dressed, wore brooches, and wore Hats......
This one, is from the 50's, the style of frame defines the general decade.
A fabulous rare find, and you found it.
Such a exquisite classic from that era.
The sequins are a deep purple and copper.
Throughout the design,there is copper seed bead,
and all along the whole edge.
Then they have sewn what appears to be shells.
Small boroque type shells/beads with irridesence to them.
Such a intricate hat, with extreme attention to detail.
I see one shell is broken. You really have to look for it.
If there is one missing, I can't tell.
Other then that, the only thing wrong, it is dusty.
A professional cleaning, and this Gem will sparkle!
The smaller label on one side says 22, along with a spool,
and a gift wrapped box.
on reverse, Consumer Protection Label, Mfd Under Fair Labor Standards.

One size fits all, but I will still give you measurements:
The overall length is 12 1/8"
The center measures 3" wide,
and each end, near your ears is 6" wide.
If you would like more photos, please just ask.
