This is one of my very favorite hats. It is a fab black velvet tricorn from the Edwardian period. It is in incredible condition with like new velvet and a lovely black satin lining. Wonderfully hand made but alas no signature or label. Curled black ostrich feather trim. I have a red tartan historical outfit that I wear for various functions involving the antique world - it is actually a Victorian outfit with a wide skirt and a snug little jacket trimmed in black velvet. I wear this hat with my red tartan outfit, along with black Victorian lace gloves, a black parasol with wonderful Victorian lace edging, and a black lace fan from the same period. Although the hat is from a slightly later period, it looks lovely with the outfit and the ostrich feather makes it looks Victorian. It is an awesome hat and one that is not for sale in our shop.
