💜 Fabulous vintage 1950s purple formal tilt hat
💜 This glamorous purple felt chapeau is adorned with lush purple ostrich feathers around 3/4 of the brim
💜 The left side of the plumage is accented with silver decorative beading
💜 One size fits most since this sits atop the head and is secured by black adjustable prongs
💜 A Cathay of California Original
The hat itself measures 12.5” x 13” (+ 5” for the feathers)
The inside crown is 7.25” x 6” (though this part mostly sits atop your head)
Good vintage condition. The purple dye has faded on the right side of the plumage to a light purple (which is common with vintage purple dye).
The hat itself is in structurally excellent shape. The purple felt dye has a very subtle color change on the crown (this is much more pronounced in these photos than in person).
The feathers are sturdy and in tact. There’s a small 2” section of feathers toward the right edge which looks less full than the rest but it’s unclear if that’s just how the feathers are laying or if it’s in fact missing some.
Please see photos. Priced accordingly and as is. Presents beautifully.
