This little pillbox hat was made in the 1970s in a style which harks back to the 1940s.
It is made from black cotton velvet with a taffeta lining, and is decorated with a black fabric flower on the right-hand side. The hat is draped with a net veil which sits over the face when worn, and an elastic is attached to the inside, which can be tucked under the hair to keep it in place.

The hat is designed to sit at an angle on one side of the head, and has a petersham band just inside the lower edge to ensure that it sits neatly on the head. The circumference at the lower edge measures twenty inches, and the depth of the hat is approx. two and a quarter inches.

Taking into account the normal wear to be expected from a vintage item, the hat is in very good condition.

The preparation time required before your order is shipped is shown in the 'Shipping & Policies' tab of each individual listing. Shipping within the UK normally takes approx. 1 to 3 days, to EU countries approx. 1 week, and to the USA approx. 2 weeks. However shipping may take longer, and I suggest that if you are ordering from outside the UK, you should allow 14 to 21 days shipping time. If you are ordering an item for an event on a specific date and would like fast delivery, you are welcome to contact me via Etsy messaging to check whether this would be possible. Please state the item that you are interested in, and the country in which you are based.
