Buttery Thin Vintage 1930's-50's Fur Felt Cone Hood Hat Body
My my my!!! These thin (but dense) fur felts are utterly buttery to the touch with a suede-like finish. Not only that but there are vintage, most dating to the 1930s-1940s from varying manufacturers including Borsalino (Italian) and Feutre Flechet (Paris).
These are truly some of the most gorgeous vintage hat bodies we have had the privilege to have and will make some very lucky milliners very happy! Some have manufacturer stamps on them which add to their charm.

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.
