1950s Rare Hubert de Givenchy Couture Silk Hat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About



If you collect hats you will be thrilled to see this little beauty as it is just exceptional and so very, very rare. I am dating this to the early 1950s and it is wonderful to have such and early piece like this. The cap's base is made of a black silk netted tulle wrapped over a circular wire frame. Onto this is a circle of black silk petals and and a mix of silk and velvet leaves. Each is hand placed and set so that the center portion remains transparent through the tulle. It is just extraordinary and a real treasure for the collector or hat lover.

It is made to just sit on the top of the head and so does not have a true hat size as it should fit any size head.

This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
