1950s Sculptural Black Velvet Close Hat

Very iconic Audrey Hepburn fine black velvet close hat with a sculptural bow perching off the back. Very soft and dense silk velvet, it is a very high quality Mid Century formal close hat.

In excellent vintage condition. In storage since the 1950s! The only think to note is the velvet has been a little pressed from storage in a couple places - see last picture. There's a ton of instruction online for restoring velvet nap :)

Secures into place by two velvet-covered metal pieces on the side.

Diameter is:6.5"
Circumference is: 18.75"
