A tiny toque style hat that sits on top of the head – not quite a Forties doll hat, but almost. Perhaps closer to a Sixties pillbox style, but not quite that, either. Good guess that it may come from the 1950’s.
Don’t know what they would have called this design in France, but we can be sure that it was on the leading edge of fashion when it was made, because the French always have been.
Emerald green wool felt, with a grosgrain ribbon and bow detail. A simple style that packs a punch. Always fun for St. Patrick’s Day, but this gorgeous color is such a beautiful accent anytime – especially when it enhances the coloring of the wearer to perfection . . . . . . .
