Black Victorian Hat. Fanchon Style. 1860s 1870s Vintage Antique Victorian. Beads, Sequins, Velvet Bows, Netting. Excellent Condition. Perfect for Today Fashions.

~A lovely hat with the triangular, slightly diamond shape of a Fanchon, popular in the mid Victorian Era.
~This hat has a strong wire frame covered in fine netting and beautifully embellished with bead work, sequins and two lovely black velvet bows at back.
~There are two wire tabs at the front sides of the hat that may have been used to secure hat in place with pins.
~Sometimes Fanchon hat had trailing ribbons, but not always.
~Many thanks to the Vintage Fashion Guild for assistance in determining date of this hat.

Frame of this hat is approximately 7 ½” front to back and 8” side to side. Bows extend from frame at back of hat. Hat height is approximately 2” at highest point.

Hat is in fabulous vintage condition. There is some slight fraying of bow at edges and probably some bead work missing, but nothing that shows up as obvious. As noted earlier Fanchons, may or may not have been embellished with ribbon details. I see no pieces of once attached ribbon. Perfect hat to wear or add to a collection. A rare find for a hat that is approximately 140 years old in this condition!!!

All items are accurately described and flaws noted. Different computer monitors can display different colors. Items are sold as is...as found. I rarely clean, press or repair. There is no way I can tell if your item will fit, so please refer to my measurements.

I am happy to answer any questions you might have & send additional photos as needed.
