English High Tea Hat/SageGreen

295.00

One lump, or two? Lemon or cream? Taylors of Harrogate, cucumber sandwiches, and Royal Crown Derby china. Pinkies raised, and of course, the proper English High Tea Hat, are all you'll need for a real English High Tea. This darling little confection is the pefect hat for such an occasion. Completely hand sewn from the buckram and wire frame, to the last little applied ostrich frond!! Frosted in 100% Italian dupioni silk, in the softest shade of hand dyed sage green, with an overlay of antique lace that covers the shallow crown. A piping of hand dyed green silk , segues into a delicate layer of ivory Russian veiling on the brim. The soft peach gardenia, is also handmade of hand dyed silk organza, stiffened in non-toxic milliners gelatin, heat curled, then sewn together, petal by petal. 
A decidedly 50's retro look is this very sweet hat. It would also be a perfect Sunday church hat, or maybe make an appearance at a wedding, or even dressed down at a country picnic! Where ever you choose to wear her, you'll feel perfectly presented!!
Lined in matching silk crepe de chine, this hat stays put with a thin millinery elastic, worn under the head, hidden by your hair. It truly looks best when tilted forward on the forehead. A three season hat. This hat can be custom ordered in your color choice, pending color availability--see it in luscious lemon yellow in the last photo.  
We also suggest that this hat in spring colors, would be the perfect bridesmaid toppers! (Please plan your order for weddings well in advance!!) Turn around time is 3-4 weeks, per hat. Convo me about this. Please read shop policies before ordering.
Please note: All of our hats use vintage and antique trimmings, which are by their nature, in limited supply. The lace on these hats will differ slightly from hat to hat.
