Description

This lovely vintage black velvet wide brimmed hat is a creation by Sue Claire of New York, Paris & San Francisco. The hat has a little round cap with the top piece that is 6" in diameter and the pleated velvet sides are 1" tall. Attached to the 1" side cap is the wide brim, which is 2 1/4" wide in the back, widens to the sides to 4 1/4" and the front of the brim is 4 1/2" wide. The measurements are from the inner part of the brim. Another layer of velvet is attached over the stiff piece of the brim, and is lightly gathered at the sides of the top cap and is loosely folded over at the edges so the fold reaches about 3/4" over the inner brim, making the outer edges very soft and poufy. Four velvet ribbons are attached, two to the front side edge and two to the back side edge, keeping the top layer in place. Inside the hat, there is an additional piece that is made of stiffened fabric, covered with velvet on the outer side that expands to a 'V' above the ears that holds the hat on your head.

This is a very well made hat that is perfect for wear to weddings, church, or other sophisticated affairs. It is in excellent vintage condition.
