Archie Eason ‘Wedding Cake’ Hat, C.1960

About

Turn heads and wow a crowd with this C.1960 Archie Eason candlelight white faille fabric hat constructed with layers resembling a wedding cake. Originally from Georgia, Mr. Eason started his career as a milliner in the 1950’s creating unusual and one-of-kind hats for a Florida Department store soon thereafter taking his talents and knack for innovative designs to New York. His hats are often recognized by a single green sequin on the brim ... a symbol of a unique style. This hat, complete with an explosive pom-pom at the crown, would be an avant-garde choice for a non-traditional bride or anyone looking for an amazing topper. CONDITION The hat is in good condition though the attached netting is frayed and probably should be removed or replaced but could also be tucked into the brim as shown in the photographs. There is a small smudge spot at the front of the brim and some soiling to the interior of the rim, as shown in photographs 12 and 13. MEASUREMENTS The hat measures 9" tall. It is designed to sit on top of the head with the inside rim measuring 19.5" circumference. Two small hair combs are stitched inside the buttery yellow and gold pinstripe lining to provide an anchor for placement. The upturned brim measures 2.5" wide.
