Vintage 1940s/50's Salome Felt Capeline
Salome finish hat bodies are coveted for their interesting texture of short rabbit fur accented with longer, shiny fur fibres. This vintage example dates to the 1940s/50s tans is the suburb quality and finish one would expect from a vintage hat body.
Capeline Measures (when laid flat): 25x40cm
Condition: Excellent vintage condition.
*Please note that this is not a finished hat but the 'body' to make one from scratch.*
Petershams Guide to hat bodies:
Cone: This is the perfect size for most fascinators and for blocking out hat crowns.
Flares: This is the size inbetween a cone and a capeline, so good for hats with smaller brims or larger fascinators.
Capelines: This is the largest hat body, great for wide brimmed hats.
