Vintage Hat Friday

It’s Friday again but honestly the days are all running together since our world has been turned upside down with COVID-19. Wishing all of you well and please stay healthy.

Orange Felt hat, “Model by Lisette”

I thought this orange number might bring a bit of sunshine to your day! It’s a classic 1950s style in orange felt with a dramatic sweep of two dyed pheasant feathers caped in a pearl and rhinestone holder. The tag inside says “Model by Lisette” The A. Polsky Co., Akron, Ohio.

The hat is constructed with an inner cap and then topped with the brim that is sewn on by hand. And then of course the wonderful feathers were added as the crowning glory.

Such a fun hat that has just the right amount of drama to amp up an otherwise conservative topper. Enjoy the weekend!
