Bill Cunningham William J Polka Dot Velvet Hat in the Original William J Hatbox

About

Famed New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham designed hats before He picked up his camera. This soft black velvet hat with mocha colored polka dots drapes over the black velvet brim of this oversized newsboy cap. A large black velvet button top holds the gathers in place. The hat has a bright yellow lining and gold braid edging with the William J label inside. It is in excellent condition inside and out, and comes with the original William J hatbox. Several years ago a collection of twenty five William J hats that I listed on 1stdibs went to the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is your chance to own a Museum quality hat. Measurements; Height 6" Width 9" Interior circumference 22.5"
