SALE! A Tea Hat or Mini Fascinator in shimmering copper taffeta, with vintage primrose yellow and 'copper beech' brown lace. An upcycled pearl-like button is surrounded by tiny beads and backed by a subtle brass cog. Based on a sturdy, flocked, moulded plastic mini top hat.

SIZE: 12.5cm (5") in diameter. The lace hangs down 43cm (17") from the brim of the hat.
CARE: though taffeta is usually dry clean only, I have found that this material will bear a gentle wipe with a damp cloth and very mild detergent. The lace can be ironed on a medium setting.

HOW TO FIX: there are two strong crocodile hair grips at the front and back, allowing for invisible hold (see photo).

This original, one-off fascinator will be delivered within a card hat box.

'Tea with Elsie was always a pleasurable affair. The usual array of fancies and fine teas, wonderful hats and the latest fashions...all whilst gently sailing in the clouds in her personal dirigible called "Delightful". Mind you, one always had to remember to use extra hat-pins... '
