RESERVED LISTING for Gretchen


This is an absolutely rare and exceptional vintage find: a black lacquered woven straw 1920s (to very early 1930s) cloche hat! Few of these beauties seem to have survived (especially in a wearable size!). I adore the upturned front brim and the bow, which is accented with its original black & ivory carved celluloid buckle that has diamante accents! Inner liner is perfect and there is a label inside the crown which reads: Dordana Model New York. Truly, this is one of my favourite flapper finds EVER!

Sizing:
When I measured the inner circumference of the hat, I got 21"; however, it did fit to 22" on my head and my mannequin. Be very careful, though, when pushing the hat down on your head, and keep in mind that I and my hat form have flat short hair :)

Condition: For a hat of this kind, this beauty is in remarkably intact condition with life and wear left. However, on close inspection, I do notice a few places where the straw has broken or gotten worn (the edge of the bow is jagged). These spots could be carefully clipped with ease, though and do not affect the overall charm and wearability of the item. I also notice some spots on the side brim where the lacquer has faded with time, revealing lighter straw coloured spots. All in all, though, I am in awe that this amazing hat has survived to 2012! A rare treasure, for sure!! Item is sold AS IS and as a FINAL SALE, so please ask all questions and request any extra photos BEFORE purchase. Thanks!
