1940s Lilly Dache Autumn Ostrich Plumes Hat

SOLD, Thank you!
 
Isn't it romantic?  The perfect vintage 1940's chapeau for wearing on a crisp Autumn day!

Lilly Dache' totally captured the essence of the season, with  very tall and frilly ostrich plumes tinted in ombre' shades of deep russet, bittersweet, burnt orange and pale apricot....Yummy!   Very dramatic, the plumage soars above the hat, which is expertly hand blocked of the finest French velour fur felt in rich, dark chocolate brown, that is buttery velvety soft.   Pure silk French millinery veiling is added as a trailer that can be worn over the face and reaching to the chin, or under the chin, or behind the head to secure the hat in place.   
 
Vintage is 1940's with the Lilly Dache signature tan and brown label:   Lilly Dache, Paris New York, which was her custom NY salon label.   Another label underneath reads "medium".
 
The ostrich plumes are very very thick and fluffy, and twist in a graceful spiral that looks beautiful from every angle.  There are two plumes sewn together to create one large thick feather plume.  Very frilly!
 
This would be fashionable anytime of the year, but is especially wonderful for Thanksgiving or any special Autumn occasion.
 
Condition is very good.   Fresh and clean, with no soiling or fading, no moth bites, no marks or wear.  The felt is supple and velvety soft.   The hat is not crushed, not dented or out of shape.  The plumes are excellent with no shedding or flaws.  The silk veiling is very good, not dry or fragile, but does have a small tear in 1 place, not a detraction overall.  Inside is clean, the label has some mild wear and a few tiny hatpin holes.   The hat is very well preserved.
