Pink Straw Flapper Cloche 1924

SOLD. 
This is a gorgeous 1920's cloche hat in a delicious shade of pale razberry pink!   Or shall I say... Jazzberry pink!   Deep cloche crown and medium wide "Pamela" style brim, wrapped in wide French silk petersham ribbon and a large pink straw and ribbon bow on the side.  Made of finest quality, very narrow Milan straw braid that is sturdy and supple.  The crown has a blocked shape with a series of rows of soft "ripples" along the back side which are done as part of the style of the hat (hard to see in these photos).   The entire brim is wired to keep its shape,  and is wrapped in pink petersham ribbon.
 
Very desirable style,  fabulous color, and highly collectible designer.  Lining is stamped GAGE Hats NY and Paris.   Fully lined and stamped in gilt gold with the makers marks.   Vintage is circa 1923 to 1925.  Size is large, with an inner circumference of 23 1/4 inches, so the cloche hat sits deep on the head and low on the face, for the perfect Flapper peek-a-boo appeal!  

CONDITION:  Very Good.  Clean with no soiling or odors.  Straw is sturdy and supple, no dryness or breaks, and it has no holes or rips.  Mild fading of the color, and the underside (facing) is a bit darker pink but that is a nice effect.  Silk ribbon has a few places with mild wear, a snag near the back, but is overall in very good shape, mild fading of the color, but not dry, split, or shattering.  Lining has tatters along 1 side, and is pulling slightly at the edge stitching as found in these hats, but is otherwise OK and is not falling out or dry...The hat does shows mild signs of its age, a few signs of use, and the wire brim has some bit of waviness to it, which can be altered if it bothers you, but looks fine as it is.  No wire poking though the brim.  Edge is clean with no wear.  The hat is not fragile.   The hat is not perfect, but is really overall quite good, clean and can be worn.
Price: $0.00
