1948 French Twist Pink Velvet Hat Lederer de Paris

 
FRENCH TWIST!  A delicious Confection of a hat that looks yummy enough to eat.  By famous French maker of luxury goods, Lederer de Paris.  Vintage is 1948.  Quite the rare chapeau indeed, as hats by this French maker are few and far between on the vintage scene and usually only appear in museums or private collections.
 
I could not decide which way to show the hat, as it looks great from almost any angle...Lush and thick, buttery soft silk velvet in luscious dusky pink and magenta hues (it was hard to get the colors right, the dark pink is a rich magenta wine color).  No size, as this hat can be worn at a decided angle on almost any head size.  Label reads "Lederer de Paris, Fifth Avenue, New York".  The hat was skillfully made in Paris and sold in the renowned Lederer shop in New York.  Lederer de Paris  has been selling fine luxury goods since 1898 in Paris, London and NY.    They no longer make hats, and this is a rare f ind for your collection, and great investment piece.
 
CONDITION is near excellent.  May show mild age, but I found no real flaws...fresh and clean, well stored in a hatbox so it has no fading or soiling, no rips or crushing, and is clean with no odors.  Inside has only mild age, overall the hat is near excellent.
