Late 1930s to Mid 1940s Lilly Dache Felt Cloche Hat

I will say it outright - this is one wacky silhouette. But it is a fascinating effort by one of America’s premier milliners. As to the date. With some help from my colleagues at the Vintage Fashion Guild, we narrowed it down to after 1938 to mid 1944-45. The cloche style hat is pale blue felt with a wide royal blue grosgrain band and a large metallic gold cord appliqué with orange edges at the center front. The crown is very high and pointed with a dart at the top of the appliqué. It can be telescoped down, but there are no signs that this was done - no old folds. There is fading to the color in some areas, but those areas don’t indicate folds, either. There is a narrow grosgrain band on the interior, no lining.

Labels: Lilly Dache Paris New York 78 East 56th Street, N.Y. and Mrs. Eugene Grey Columbus Ohio, Dayton Ohio Harbor Springs, Michigan

Size: Crown: 21“.

Condition: Exterior has some fading of the blue plus moth cratering as shown.There is a crease line from where the hat must have been stored folded flat.

Gorgeous Victorian Era Mother of Pearl and Cut Steel Belt Buckle Clasp

This large round clasp is from the late Victorian era, I am thinking 1880s-1900 with the Eastlake influence to the carving and pierce work. Each half has a center of cut steel work and has a button style sewn on back. The hook and loop appear to be brass plated and are attached with a domed rivet. You can see the solder on the back quite well. It’s possible this was a set of buttons converted to a clasp, but if so, it was done amazingly well and in the period.

Marks: None

Size: when fastened: Length: 3.5”, Width: 1.5”

Condition: some discoloration and age to the metal parts, one side has some flaking off of the pearl only on the back.
