1940's French Scultped Toque/Plum
A faithful reproduction of a beautiful, French sculpted toque, is revisited in this very soft, and luxurious velour felt, in a deep, rich shade of plum. I have handblocked this sophisticated, chic little toque, over an authentic hand carved 1940's French hat block, that just arrived from Germany!! Oh, the stories it could tell!!! It is really a bit of a hybrid, combining elements of the nonchalant classic beret, with a foreshadowing of the coming decades' pillbox. The deeply sculpted grooves are inherent in the hat block, and are handstitched to hold their shape. Fully lined in a soft shade of lavender taffeta. The focal point is finished with an extraordinary vintage Art Deco ceramic button, depicting a gazelle, and a dash of Russian veiling with deep amethyst feathers, add just the right touch of panache!
An authentic homage to a fabulous chapeau, that you will want to wear every day!!
NOTE: At the moment, this hat is a custom order only. Future hats will have a different vintage button or ornament, as vintage buttons can rarely be duplicated. This button unfortunately, was a one of a kind. We can discuss about what other fabulous vintage buttons I have in stock!!  
This hat can be ordered in any color you desire, and blocked to your head size. Please message me for custom orders.
