Antique Style 1920s Gatsby Flapper Downton Abbey Cloche Silk Hat - Antique Lace
























Description

Vintage Style 1920s Flapper Gatsby Downton Abbey Cloche Hat of absolutely gorgeous antique Edwardian-era lace over iridescent silk, with a marvelous elaborate band of antique silk hand embroidery...Like all of my hats, this one is exquisitely hand made from authentic 1920's patterns, absolutely sumptuous pure silk materials and lavish antique trimmings....yet so wearable today....this one looks soooo incredibly vintage as all of the materials used are antique/vintage and the colors/tones are all deliciously subtle yet extraordinarily rich....a perfect Gatsby/Downton Abbey event or Art Deco party cloche! And, this hat is especially wonderful for the chemo patient as it fits closely to the head and looks soooo feminine and glamorous....everyone will ask "WHERE did you get that, it's so gorgeous!"...Please see my other listings for the exquisite lavender opal earrings that coordinate with this hat...

I must take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who've become fans of my work...I love to know that my pieces inspire and delight others and am so appreciative of your wonderful encouragement and praise. :-) Am also very proud to have created the jewelry for America's Got Talent finalist and extraordinary performer, Prince Poppycock, for his last four performances on NBC's AGT during August and September, 2010! Please check out my fanpage at http://www.facebook.com/SavannahParkerDesigns on Facebook as I have many MORE photos of each of my items there, posted there in fullsize albums...be sure to click "like" on my FB page and you will be among the very first to see my newest creations + special offers just for my Facebook followers. I've now opened my beautiful website at http://www.savannahparker.com as well, so do come visit! :-)

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb, rare old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage-look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here...

This exquisite beauty of a cloche is made of soft shimmery light tan/blush silk overlaid with super fine, genuine authentic antique Edwardian lace with a delicate floral pattern.....to this I've added a lush, wide band of fantastic antique hand embroidery of lavender and pearl grey silks and gold metallic thread superbly worked on pale pearl grey silk....this antique piece is from my collection of exquisite hand embroideries....This lavish band, which is entirely hand done (the delicacy and intricacy of this has to be seen to be believed!), is further accented with antique lavender trim and tiny bands of antique ivory silk trim at top and bottom.... At the side is a magnificent handmade ivory ruched and pleated flower touched with tiny shimmering gold stamens and a garland of lavender ribbon flowers at the center....be sure to look at the closeup views of this fabulous piece on my Facebook page... The brim edge is bound with handsewn ivory antique lace.... just utterly beautiful details that take one's breath away. The fabric is just shimmeringly exquisite, the beautiful soft accents make this piece look extraordinarily vintage and ALL of the exterior decoration including the individual decorative elements, are painstakingly sewn on by hand, just as in the "old days".....I'm a stickler for primo "old school" workmanship! Fully lined in finest pure silk.....This one is a medium size and made from VERY choice rare materials in my collection.... So perfect for someone who has undergone chemo too, as this is a very comfortable hat....I think everyone has the right to be beautiful--- and this would be a great gift for someone who needs that little lift and to feel so pretty....! Also a great piece for anyone to wear to a Great Gatsby, Downton Abbey or Art Deco vintage themed event, garden party or reenactment...this is as authentic and historically correct as it gets :-) Looks fabulous with the brim worn up or down, though I think it's best up to show off the lovely underside vintage trimming. The fabulous lavender opal earrings the mannequin is wearing coordinate with this hat perfectly; they can be found in my other listings.

Please make sure you carefully note proper head measurements: this is a ready made hat (however the lining will be put it after it is sold) and I've made this particular hat to fit up-to-medium sizes, it measures approx. 24" inner circumference so I would say up to a size 23/23 1/4" head could wear this, any larger than that and it would probably be too snug for real comfort, I have a 22.5 size head and this fits me nicely and perfectly....if you have a small head and your hair is flat, this might be somewhat loose on you.....mannequin has a 22" head but very fluffy hair, so do keep that in mind. PLEASE NOTE that these hats are NOT adjustable or alterable so please do know your exact requirement before purchasing as there are no refunds or returns. Good idea to take your head measurement first--tapemeasure crossed over the forehead and just above the ears around to the largest part of the head--before purchasing. The 1920's cloche is meant to be a close fitting hat and hairstyle should kept to a minimum for the proper look....... Half an inch in headsize CAN make a difference so please, make sure you have exact size requirements in hand before you buy. If there is a specific size requirement you're looking for do let me know, and I will keep that in mind when creating future styles.....I don't do custom work or alterations, sorry! Also, please do read my shop policies/shipping info in full BEFORE you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page). Be sure to look at all of the numerous photos of this hat that I have posted on my Facebook page---many more views than I can show here...
All hat shipping is BOXED and trackable Priority Mail including overseas.

Please check my other listings for more hats, accessories, vintage lace clothing & fabulous jewelry, I try to list new items at least weekly....always a great selection of handmade vintage and antique inspired beauties including the gorgeous coordinating jewelry that goes with these fab vintage style hats and clothing pieces for the total look. Thanks for visiting!
