Vintage Hat Friday

Greetings, Vintage Hat Lovers!

Today’s post features a hat that’s as charming and practical today as it was when it was made. The label is from R.H. Macy & Co., Inc. New York. This sweet topper is made from wool felt with a band of Persian Lamb across the front. The top of the hat features intricately woven strips of wool felt that create a pretty design that mimics the Persian Lamb. The original hat pin is still intact. I have restored this piece with a new inner grosgrain ribbon band and have added a very narrow black headband so that it stays put on the head.

I can envision this hat on a pretty woman shopping downtown in the late 1940s, early 1950s. Understated and chic!
