Victorian Boater with Feather Flower

Victorian Boater with Feather Flower

278.00

An unexpected, and so very charming winter hat, is this Italian wool boater, reminiscent of the Victorian era. I don't often put flowers on winter hats, but this was a case of feathers morphing into a flower, with delicate ostrich frond tendrils cascading over the edge of the brim. A touch of Russain veiling adds just a hint of romance! The hatband is authentic Victorian lace, and comes with a brass filagree hatpin, with a tear dropped shaped hematite stone. I have hand blocked this sweet hat over a vintage wooden hat block, and an improvised brim block. Fully lined in a lovely chrysanthemum printed satin, and hand sewn throughout! The brim and crown are wired for durability and a long life, with proper care. This hat stays securely in place with a discreet millinery elastic in black, worn under the hair at the nape.  
One of a kind and ready to ship. Fits heads to measure 22-23 inches. 
It can be stretched a tad, if your head is a little bigger.
