Avant-Garde C.1940 Black Velvet Hat With Fuchsia Wool Snood


You are going to have so much fun with this hat! The soft velvet body stands tall with a sculptural shape and the stretchy wool knit snood anchors everything in place. The fuchsia pink color pop is an added bonus and makes this avant-garde hat a stylish centerpiece to a stand out ensemble. The interior of the hat is stamped with a 'B B Ruth' Czechoslovakia maker's mark and a J. P. Allen & Co. of Atlanta, GA label. Excellent vintage condition with a couple of minor pulls to the gauzy knit snood...amazingly, it maintains plenty of stretch for practical wear. MEASUREMENTS The interior rim measures 18.25" circumference. The crown has a 5" rise at the front with 8.25" to the center.
