Circa: Early 1950s

Another fabulous milliner - Evelyn Varon. A French milliner who's hats were so unique they started copying them in 1914. Stores in the US offered knockoffs of her French hats and then she ended up here in the US designing for the US market. This wonderful warm ecru raised beret with loads of ivory beads could be the center of the wedding party or for a friendly cocktail party. Interior is cotton lace and upon close inspection there is almost old cotton applique florals but they are part of the underlay with the beads covering all other areas. Two U shape holders to pin onto the head whether straight on or tilted to the side as seen in the center photo.

*Vintage hats are like the women who wear them, one of a kind & very unique*
