A beautiful pale powder pink soft velvet pillbox with folded squares of matching pink grosgrain ribbon arranged in a diamond-shaped trim around the edge of the hat and one square at the very top. Slightly rounded crown with wide straight sides adorned with the squares of ribbon. A great colour for blonds (see Divine Darling who looks soooo good in this hat) but also a stunner with dark hair and eyes. Topped with a matching eyelid veil in the softest, finest french silk so this hat must be early 1950s. The veil can be tucked inside the hat for a different look. There is one little round black 'sparkler" button with clear rhinestones over the left eye that catches the light when you move. A sweet soft hat in very good condition. A few marks on the matching grosgrain ribbon hatband inside - undoubtedly makeup stains. The hat has a union-made label, but alas any designers label that may have been in the hat has disappeared over time.
