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.
