            Mark/Labe;: Janyth Roy New York; Mellogleam Italian Body
            Condition: Good

            One of a kind vintage item. Get it before it’s gone.

            Vintage 1950s brown half hat with wrap bow.  This half hat perches on top of the head which allows it to fit most and flatter any face shape or hair style. Beautiful flat velvet bow wraps around the front of the hat then dips down the sides not only for a fabulous design statement but also to allow a secure fit. 

            Half hats are a brimless shallow hat that usually sits flat on top of the crown - like an extra wide bandeau. The half hat was created by Lilly Dache, who won an American Designer award for it in 1941. Dior designed veiled half hats beginning in 1947. They remained popular during the 1950s and morphed into variations including openwork half-hats comprised of a wired piping frame with flowers, feathers or other trims.* Half hats are perfect for almost every hairstyle or face shape. Check out Madge's article on half hats

              Mark/Label: Miss Frederics of John Frederics

              This label was a partnership of John Pico Harberger (a/k/a "John Pico John" or "Mr. John") and Frederic Hirst. The Coty awards gave John-Frederics a special award for millinery in 1943. When Mr. John and Frederic Hirst dissolved their partnership in 1948, Mr. John formed the Mr. John label. Frederic Hirst kept the John-Frederics label and also designed hats as "Mr. Fred." After the split Mr. Fred did not fare as well as Mr. John. John-Frederics was mentioned and/or advertised in fashion magazines in the 1920s through the 1950s. John Frederics Charmer hats were advertised in 1950s magazines, after Mr. John left the label. The Philadelphia Museum of Art has 20 hats in its on-line collection, including examples before and after the partnership split. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has 44 hats, including this innovative turban made of wool yarn and beads circa 1937-41, a turban made of twisted straw braid and silk circa 1940 (and a variation in different colors), an amazing medieval inspired toque with donut shapes dripping with fringe circa 1941, and a spangled snood circa 1942. Labels: John Frederics Made to Order, John Frederics, John Frederics Charmer (less expensive line), "Sweet Young Things" "Miss Frederics."

              Pheasant feather half hat in tan, blue, white and brown.  Beautiful half hat wraps the face in fabulous tan pheasant feathers with flecks of blue and red. Half hats are flattering for all face shapes and sizes. Back cord for secure fit. 

              Half hats are a brimless shallow hat that usually sits flat on top of the crown - like an extra wide bandeau. The half hat was created by Lilly Dache, who won an American Designer award for it in 1941. Dior designed veiled half hats beginning in 1947. They remained popular during the 1950s and morphed into variations including openwork half-hats comprised of a wired piping frame with flowers, feathers or other trims.* Half hats are perfect for almost every hairstyle or face shape. Check out Madge's article on half hats.
