1940's French Toque hat

1940's French Toque hat

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 claret.   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 super warm, black flannel backed satin.  The focal point is finished with an extraordinary facet cut, Art Deco jet glass button from the 1940's, and a dash of Russian veiling, with burgundy curled 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.
