Vintage Plain Fur Felt Capeline
This fur felt capeline hat body is made from lush rabbit fur and is of the excellent quality one would expect of a vintage hat body!
We can't quite date this one, it came from a collection of French hat bodies mainly attributed to the Morreta factory in France which closed it's doors in the 70s, so we think it is at least that old.
Capeline Measures (when laid flat): 25x40cm
Condition and colour notes:
Black Fur: In excellent vintage condition, the capeline has three factory cut notches on the very outside of the brim as pictured.
Brown Fur: In excellent vintage condition, this fur capeline has a very short soft pile.
*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.
