c. 1950 Italian fur felt hat

This is a stunning piece of vintage made under the best circumstances. The actual piece is made in Italy by "Chevalier". The fur felt blend gives the hat that super soft lush feel. Structured, hard bodied and molded to create permanent waves of fabric. It looks even better on than off. I adore this piece! $125
