Extra Long Shag Vintage 1940s/50s Melusine Fur Felt Cone Hood Hat Body

These melusine fur felt cones are stunning! Made with only the very longest soft rabbit fur, each one has it's own personality and will make for an utterly unique hat. 

Dating to the 1940s/50s, these cones are in excellent vintage condition.

Colour notes & Sizes (when laid flat):
Cocoa: 26x41cm. This cone is unusual in that there is a unshagged top crown. 
Antique Gold: 25x39. Wow! This one really catched the light in the most beautiful way. A really lovely olden gold tone. 
Green: The longest shag we have ever seen on a hat body! Really, really special, a great one for collectors with it's original 1940s tag.
Emerald Green: 24x41cm. This one is by far the shaggiest!

 

*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.
