Gradient Melusine Vintage 1950s/60's Fur Felt Cone Hood Hat Body
Gradient melusine?! You heard us right. These vintage examples date to the 1950s/60s and have the most superb colours fading from a light tone at top crown to a rich deep one at their bottom edge. The fur has a spectacular shag. They are very special and would make for a fabulous one of a kind hat.
Colour notes & Sizes (when laid flat):
Plum Gradient Melusine: 22x34cm. Very high shine, fading from pale lilac to black at the bottom. We almost could not part with this one!
Jade Gradient Melusine: 24x33cm. Lower shine than the plum version, but has a great shag and gorgeous jade-y teal tones.
*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.
