These cloches were created either with various color bullion threads or for a more natural look... Middle part with lovely twisted braided hairdo decorated with silk flowers, stems, leaves. Think 2001 A Space Odyssey with the bubble helmet hats! But then again, they were tiny people with 18" waists and 10" shoulder span, so... if you have a display of hats and boots (as I used to! or each separately (as I know there will be many who don't need/want all 8 pair). I wear a size 6.5, and you can see it on my wrinkly foot (I wonder if I can botox my feet! Excellent condition (like what you might see in a department store with a pair of shoes on display. Lovely ribbon design on this hat with little bow at back and a large raspberry ostrich feather at the side. She obviously kept her possessions in great condition. I'm not absolutely sure the vintage dating of this hat... He created headwear for the likes of Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer and Joan Crawford.
This piece is in EXCELLENT CONDITION with just a few minor threads out of place, and just a few minor tears to the silk lining (a lining that is SO rare to find in place at all! This was the look in 1967 (per the Clairol cosmetics ad from 1967 below). It was originally when new, which with inflation equals 5 today. Love the old telephone number with letters for the telephone exchange. ) you will know just how pretty these things look sitting on lace and ribbons. The only thing are the creases at the front toes which could probably be made to practically disappear with some black shoe polish (but I leave things as I find them for those who prefer that! These boots have a sticker on the bottom with the manufacturer and date as it's hard to read the gold company logo inside the top of the boot (see photo). I have no idea what town, or country for that matter! But one pair has already SOLD, so the complete box is no longer available. I wear a size 6.5, and you can see the other size 36.5 size Chanel mule shoe on my wrinkly foot (I wonder if I can botox my feet! :) from a lot, and I don't really deal in new shoes, so .... Look at the first photo (after you click on the photo at left) to see the more true color of the feather... Be careful when you purchase a simple 1840s bonnnet... so coming from a museum, you KNOW this is the real thing! Excellent condition hat of a peachy pink straw with glorious stiff ruffly edge of brim! I would have thought this hat might be early 1960s, but the museum tag is 1950. Eventually his hats were wholesaled to department stores.
There is the usual patina on these pieces that you just learn to live with... These headpieces can be slightly bent by hand to match your headshape (I know because I tried it! In 1946 his hat prices retailed for .50 - .50. Druce retired in 1954 and left the business to Leslie. if Leslie James designs were good enough for Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford..... If these trimmings aren't original to the hat, they are still as early as 1900's. And as you probably know (if you've ever watched a Jane Austen movie) hats and bonnets were re-trimmed all the time for those who weren't extraordinarily wealthy. always best to buy those with beautiful "bones" so any trim will just be secondary to the beauty of the hat itself! Clara La Doskey Gee Rymer, the wife of the founder of the Dixie Foundry in 1916 which became Magic Chef Inc.
with only one small area of oxidation on one earpiece (see photos).... :) These will fit a larger head size or smaller, so depending on your head and how much hair you have, just bend to fit. This one is a simple, basic shape stiff molded two-tone straw hat in hot pink and strong candy pink with that sweet "button flap" on the one side!
Commonly seen at Buckingham Palace in London, England. A soft round cap, usually of woollen felt, with a bulging flat crown and tight-fitting brimless headband. Black sequins at the front brim and gold sequins at the crown. this hat could use a professional steaming to get these flowers fluffed to their utmost. :) The hat is a black velour with black leather brim and as you can see a large flower burst leather "leaves" at the top.... A great larger tilt hat which would have been early 1940s (some of the 1930's influence still there). A unique and fabulous fairly stiff dropped brim hat of maize colored French wool felt trimmed in utterly glorious tri colored graduated feathers of green, maize and orange! The last one I had was in near mint condition and sold for 85. Seems the hat had a matching pink nose veil originally according to the museum tag. NOTE: I've contacted a few museums to check on the authenticity of these glasses, and have found that there were a few slightly different versions (in various museums), some with the grommets, some without. IN THE ORIGINAL BOX which stamped with "Made in France" and handwritten in pencil, "8 pieces Courreges". Sadly 970 Flatbush Ave is now a Popeye's Chicken fast food place. Black netting at front for that mystery (you can always wear the veil up). I gave it a start, but I keep burning myself on the steamer, so rather than having me end up in the hospital, I figured you'd wear as is, or have you take care of it!
