Vintage half hat with felt leaves and flowers in black and a very light lavender tone. Leaves have scalloped edges. Small purple seed pearls on the flowers. Half hats were very popular in the 1950s. It's a style that looks great on everyone. If you think you can't wear hats, try one of these. 

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.
