Here is a lovely beret-style hat made from a long-staple fur, which I believe to be mink. It appears to have been made from two pieces, one for the crown and the other for the sides. It is lined with black satin. There is no label.
The colour is really gorgeous – a reddish chestnut shading to very dark brown. The fur is luscious and really soft and warm, with filaments up to two inches in length.
The shape and style are very simple - but so stylish!
Although this hat is at easily fifty years old, it is in as-new condition. It measures approximately 10 inches (25 cms) in diameter).
