Hecht Co. Creamy Curved Feather Velvet Trimmed Straw Topper

$62.40 $78.00

Oh so charming this velvet trimmer topper looks like it came right out of a Audrey Hepburn movie!

This extremely well constrcucted hat is in excellent shape. The only flaw that we see is some tearing on the edge of the netting on the front of the hat. If you roll the netting onto the brim it is not visiable when wearing. Please see video for close-up.

The straw is intact. The beige velvet hat band is accented with a swooping curved feather that is intact and moved as you walk!

The creamy velveteen under brim is trimmed in a soft re velver wear it touches your forhead.

The label reads "Hecht Co." one of Washington DC premier department stores before large corporate takeovers occured before the end of the 2000's.
