Rare 1950s Couture Christian Dior Glass Berries Hat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About



If you collect hats you will be thrilled to see this little beauty as it is just exceptional. I am dating this to the early 1950s and I have to admit that I have not seen a hat this wonderful before. The cap base is made of a woven palm leaf that has been hand dyed red. Onto this are little burst of berries. Each hand placed. What is remarkable is that each of this berries is actually a small glass ball painted red. They are set so that they move and lightly brush against each other making a whispering tinkling noise. 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.
