1960s Hat with Jeweled Feathers by Varon for Bollman
Do you dare? "Who dares, wins," they say, so why not take your style to new heights with this sensational vintage Evelyn Varon chapeau? It's of cinnamon-colored "doeskin" wool felt, gracefully shaped in a sort of cross between a fedora, a cloche and a Garbo slouch. The longer side (for casting flirtatious glances beneath) is set with a lavish wheel of feathers adorned with pearls. Vintage hats just don't get any classier and this one's in immaculate condition, although it can't be younger than mid-1960s. That's when the original owner remembers purchasing it from an upscale department store in downtown Fort Worth. Unfortunately for her, she *didn't* dare to wear it much, which is why it's so perfect now. It's marked with two of the most famous names in vintage headwear: Evelyn Varon, whose work is featured in the Hat Museum, and George W. Bollman, whose firm developed the wool felt "doeskin" material from which it's made. The Bollman Hat Co. has been associated with many the world's top designers and brands since early Victorian days and the firm is still operating.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
