Antique Ribbon Cloche / 1920s
An antique roomy fit cloche is a rare find these days, and even rarer in a wearable size. Very pretty three-tone grosgrain ribbon in a pin-tucked pattern all over. Gold-ish tone brim & base.
Original label is intact and reads "May Smith" of Paris, New York. This label itself is just so charming.
Damaged silk lining is removed, label re-attached with a few small stitches. The hat could be relined but is perfectly wearable as it is, the base structure is wonderfully stable. Please note that all antique clothing needs to be worn with care.
20-21" circumference with a little give in the material. A rare, easy-to-wear find even with a hair-do in place!
