Schiaparelli Black Velvet Platter Hat w Feathers

 SOLD 1/26/2012..Thank you!

The definition of Glamour!  Beautiful vintage early 1950's chapeau by legendary Haute Couture designer Elsa Schiaparelli.  A huge scalloped platter of lush black velvet, with wavy brim that is completely covered in black netting with tiny black puffs, and the crown is swathed in fluffy curly black ostrich feathers.  Dramatic and lovely!
 
Vintage is circa 1952.  The hat has a stunning floral gilt brocade lining, and a semi Juliet cap of black velvet underneath to "hug" the head.  Wired French roll brim  measures 16" across!  The lining bears the ivory satin and hot pink signature label SCHIAPARELLI, PARIS.  This hat fits almost any head, and the undercap expands and grips the head to hold the hat at the desired angle.  Wear it tilted back or at a saucy slant, any way you choose it looks sultry and the height of vintage "New Look" style.
 
CONDITION is very good.  Clean, fresh, well stored.  The velvet is lovely with no crushing or soiling, no tears or holes.  The hat is not bent or out of shape, and the wired brim has no breaks.  Lining is excellent, only the label shows a bit of age to the color.  The feathers are excellent and have no shedding or dryness, and the veiling has no breaks or holes.  May show mild signs of age but is overall very very good, clean and ready to wear.
Price: $0.00
