A cream 100% silk pleated turban. Intricately pleated with a longer pleated back detail. It looks to be handstitched, the inside and outside are both clean and in great condition though the outside does appear to have some very very small pin marks where perhaps a previous wearer has used a hat pin to fasten it to the head.
This is a really lovely item and could even be worn for a vintage wedding. It's really reminiscent of the desert scenes from Sex and The City.
Googled Philip Somerville and it seems that he designs hats for our Queen Elizabeth. He established his hat making business in 1972 and I would suggest that this is from around this time though it could certainly be worn in a 40s style. Somerville is based in London and the label inside says Philip Somerville, Model London, Made in England with a side tag that reads 100% silk.
The blue turban is listed separately.
