Vintage from the 1940s

Materials

Felt wool, Wire, Elastic, Grosgrain ribbon, Feathers, hat pin, netting

Outstanding vintage 1940s topper hat
-Firmly blocked black felt base
-Extra tall silhouette with a wired and sculpted brim
-Very wide grosgrain ribbons around crown, 2 sewn together
-Netted veil covers the crown
-Two very curled and twisted feathers on side
-Grosgrain ribbon inside crown
-Elastic band attached for easy wear
-One black tipped hat pin included

Label: Medfield Adjustable

Condition: VERY GOOD - Near excellent
Please note the veil is pinned up due to a large hole in the net

Size is adjustable but looks best on 22 or greater
(I modeled this hat in the photos, I wear a 21 1/2.
You can see it is a little large for me, but works.)

At tallest point 7 inches high
9 inches wide front to back
8 1/2 inches wide right to left side of brim

A topper is not a 'suitor' hat, their crowns are taller. They are also larger than a 'doll' style tilt hat. They are the women's equivalent of a top hat, and one of my favorite silhouettes. These are rare and increasingly difficult to find. Once they are in a collection, they seldom leave that collection. This one is gorgeous. Thank you for visiting HighHatCouture.com. Any questions, just ask, doll!

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.
