Vintage Wide Brim Straw Cloche with Painted Flowers and Chenille Work SZ 22.75

1920s Vintage Wide Brim Straw Cloche with Painted Flowers and Chenille Work SZ 22.75

The variety of decoration on 1920s hats continues to amaze me. This one is a summer straw in golden tan with applied paper flowers, painted in black, gold and orange. These are tacked on, then enhance with straw braid and chenille in outlines and fill stitching. The band and bow are a toned silk faille. The original lining with label is hanging by a thread, but still there.

Label:Mary Ann Chicago

Size:Crown: 22.75”, Brim Overall: 14” x 12.75”

Condition: Exterior of the hat is Very Good, with a few missing pieces of braid in the outlines. The ribbon is in great shape as well. As mentioned, the silk lining is shattering and hanging by a thread, but as it carries the label, we have left it attached. The future owner could remove and save this, and a wearable lining added if so desired. It could also be worn without a lining.

Vintage 1950s - 60s Black Velvet Cocktail Hat with Rhinestone Baubles by Bes-Ben

Our first hat by famed milliner Benjamin Green-Field and it’s a winner. This late 1950s, early 1960s Tudor style cocktail hat is a stiffened deep black velvet crescent with 14 rhinestone baubles around the inner rim. It is shaped to sit toward the back of the head, not up top like a tiara. The shape does tend to grip the head and there are combs to keep it on as well. There were just a few traces of a veil. We used a photo of a very similar Bes-Ben for veil shape and added this one. It can easily be removed if you prefer I'd like to thank both my compatriots at the Vintage Fashion Guild and the Mad Hatter's Group for their input.

Label: Bes-Ben Made in Chicago

Size: would fit a 21”- 22” head. Dimensions overall 8“ x 6.5“, Height at crown: 2”.

Condition: Excellent with no spots or stains or holes. As mentioned, the veil is new.
