What a show stopper! Lovely lush shades of blue. This hat has general signs of wear for its long life, but still really makes an entrance. I will ship the original flowers with this hat. They were badly discolored and shattering and I tried my best to replace them with similar shaped vintage millinery flowers. I've made sure to secure all all decorations so this hat can be proudly worn. Thank you for visiting HighHatCouture.com

Veils sometimes wrinkle during shipping. Gently steam your veil to reshape.

Hats should be stored in boxes, never hung on walls or sat on shelves, where they collect dust.

You can clean your felt hat with a lint brush as needed. Straw hats can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth.

Vintage crepe should never touch water. For cleaning, seek a local professional dry cleaning service and ask them if they are familiar with vintage fabrics.

Vintage velvet should never be ironed, this bruises the fibers.

Wool and cotton vintage is easy to care for and usually can be hand washed in cold water. Lay flat to dry, warm iron as needed.
I love to help my customers get the hat or vintage garment they have their heart set on, and am happy to work with them.
