1940's Egret Feather Fascinator Bird's Nest Style Hat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Adorn yourself with something beautiful...and fabulously bizarre. This fascinator style hat is formed of reddish brown egret feathers that are swirled in such a manner that it appears to be straw formed into a bird's nest. The crown of the hat is lined with flat feathers and the inner rim is banded with taupe velvet. There are two hair combs stitched into the inner rim to assist with securing the hat. Wear it cocked to the side or straight on top based on your look and preference. Excellent vintage condition with a few stray feathers to be expected for its age.

Measures 6.5" in diameter at the rim x 3.5" tall at the crown and approximately 18" circumference at inside rim.
