I recently found this vintage white velvet hat at an estate sale.
It came in it's original box, with a velvet pillow and long netting/veil.
It even had a pretty pearl hat pin attached.
Lots of very pretty bead detailing, and velvet rosettes. The hat is in perfect condition.
The box even has its sales tag still attached, unfortunately the writing is too faded too read.
My guess it that it played part in a wedding in the 40's, and probably was not worn since!
