1940's French Toque/ Emerald

1940's French Toque/ Emerald

225.00

A faithful reproduction of a beautiful, French sculpted toque, is revisited in this very soft, and luxurious wool velour felt, in a rich shade of emerald green. I have handblocked this sophisticated, chic little toque, from 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 silk challis print of pheasants. The focal point is finished with a vintage 1940's, green and yellow bakelite button. A dash of Russian veiling, with dyed coque and guinea fowl feathers, add just the right touch of panache!!
An authentic homage to a fabulous chapeau, that you will want to wear every day!!
This hat can be ordered in any color you desire, and blocked to your head size. Please message me for custom orders.
