1920s French Gold Sequined Skull Cap

$345

About

This is a very fine example of original 1920s headwear in the form of an all-over gold sequinned skull cap with sections of bugle beads and circular cut outs. All of the sequins and beads are overlaid on top of a black muslin cotton underlay whilst the underside of the skull cap is edged in grosgrain ribbon. The piece is signed "Made in France". There is a later elasticated strap that has been attached to hold the design in place. The skull cap itself is in extraordinary vintage condition with only around 3-4 beads being lost on one of the edges. It is only suitable for an extra small head; that said, many of these are now in collectors cabinets and boudoirs as they display beautifully. This piece would also be suitable for a teenage girl. It is possible with the right skill set that this could be made a little bit larger. MEASUREMENTS: Circumference - 20.5 in (52 cm) Depth - 5 in (12.7 cm) Width - 10 in (25.4 cm) String - 17 in (43.2 cm)
