'La Familiare' Velour Peachbloom Fur Felt Capeline
My my my! Vintage velours really are special, the pile is lush and the colours are to die for. Dating to the 1940s/50s, this capeline has a stamp ion the inside crown of the Italian maker 'La Familiare'.
Capeline Measures (when laid flat): 27x43cm
Conditon: Sadly a few grazes have been spotted on the side crown where it meets the brim. A good trimming job will easily cover this up, though!
*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.
