CHRISTINE ORGINAL Vintage 60’s Sigma Zephyr Brown Fur Felt Hat
This is a vintage Christine Original deep fur felt hat with Sigma Zephyr body that was imported from Italy. Sigma Zephyr fur felt were high quality and used by haute couture milliners. The hat features a United Hatters Cap & Millinery Works union label (USA) which was in use from 1934 -1983. Because this hat is sort of a high modified pillbox with turban touches my educated guess is early 60’s. It has a wonderful jewel detail sewn onto the front (original to the hat, not an addition). The amber colored rhinestones are set with prongs. All stones are present. Examine the photos closely and you can see the grain or pattern of the fur body. Circumference approx. 21’’. The hat is in very good condition for vintage or otherwise. Truly special.
