Regular price $76.00 Sale

Antique mini top hat of brown wool felt with ostrich plumage, which sweeps across the front to the back on the left side of hat. Model fastens hat to hair with a couple of bobby pins. The ostrich feathers are broken in one place, but remain intact as they have been glued to hat, as opposed to simply attached at base of the feathers. The plumage has also been tied together at one point. So, despite their fragility, the feathers are still quite intact. If you give the hat a good shake, you might lose an end piece of one of or some of the feather's vanes, but this hat has much life left and is still very wearable, from the early 20th century! And the actual hat, not including the plumage, is in perfect condition, despite its age.
