I found this treasure recently in the back room of a tag sale that was filled to the rafters with linens. The designer hat box shown here was in and amongst vintage quilt tops, kitchen curtains, doilies...in other words, when you go to a sale you never know what you will find!

Elsa Schiapparelli was an artist and clothing designer in the early part of the 20th century. She was the first to design the 'wedge' shoe, which is still popular today. She also did some collaborative designs with Salvador Dali.

Her designs, her hats, and her hat boxes remain highly sought after to today. The hat box shown here is in a lovely shade of pink, and has a black cord handle from which to carry the box. The color of the pink has faded from the original shade (compare the photo of the bottom of the box to see the difference). The top shows some fraying to the edge, and also spots due to water exposure. There is also a frayed edge to the inside of the cover, which is shown in a photo. The black cording handle is the original cording. It is in good shape, and is intact. Overall, the structure of the box is in good condition. The price reflects the 'as-is' condition.

If you are looking for a couture designer hat box for your vintage hats, this box would make a lovely addition to your collection. I would keep it, but I have simply run out of room, so here you go! Now is your chance to own a real Schiapparelli designer hat box! They truly are becoming more difficult to find, and can be quite costly.

Thank you, and please note that our shipping charges include insurance up to $100.
