Super Deluxe Vintage Melusine Salome Hybrid Fur Cone Hood Hat Body
In our haul of vintage hat bodies there were two that really caught our eye - and these are it! We couldn't quite classify them as is had the long fuzz of melusine but the shiny long fur fibres of a Salome finish - it really is the best of both worlds!
Notably these cones have a wonderful brushed finish with a clear circular pattern at top. Dating between 1940's-60's these are wonderful example of hat bodies in the heyday when quality meant everything. These are going to make a millinery very happy! In excellent, vinatge condition with no flaws.Colour notes & Sizes (when laid flat):

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.
