White Vintage Hat

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!

Linked up to White Wednesday at the charming blog Faded Charm.

  5. Hi,
    I'm a first timer at your blog and just love it. Your white hat is such a treasure, and the box too! I'll looking forward to more of your whites in the weeks to come.
    Meantime, iIf you have a chance, come and pop by my bog. I'll be happy to show you around.

  6. Oooooo La La - - - it is really something!

    I love how it isn't really white any more, but not really any other color either.
