Super Deluxe Vintage Melusine Salome Hybrid Fur Cone Hood Hat Body
In our haul of vintage hat bodies this one really caught our eye! We couldn't quite classify this 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 this cone has a wonderful brushed finish with a clear circular pattern at top. Dating between 1940's-60's this is a wonderful example of a hat body in the heyday when quality meant everything. This will make a milliner very happy! In excellent, vintage condition with no flaws.Colour notes & Sizes (when laid flat):
*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.
