Most of us avoid new furs now -- I haven't bought any for more than 30 years -- but I can't justify leaving vintage pieces to rot, unworn. They're warm, for one thing, and we still find them beautiful or faux-fur wouldn't be so popular.
It would be a great pity to waste a hat as glamorous as this towering pile of fluff. The look is positively Zhivago! And it covers your entire head, all the way down to the nape of your neck, so nothing could be cozier. Fit shouldn't be a problem -- it's fine on a standard-sized head with lots of hair (mine) -- and its condition is superb.
The hat reached us with just one tag, declaring Italian origin, so its maker is unknown, as is its age. We'd be safe to say late 20th century. Provenance is a Pennsylvania estate.
Elsewhere online, these big, showy red ones seem to be going for $300-325, but we got a great deal on this beauty and we like sharing.
