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

 

Absolutely fabulous Merry Widow hat with Downtown Abby style. Warm brown velvet. Large beaded detail on the front and a saucy sweep of black feathers. Wide brim on wire that is shirred to the flat crown. This one is a real collector's item. Amazing condition for the age.  Hat size is oversized due to the hairstyles of the period, but fits most.

Merry Widow hat was an extremely large hat a deep crown often decorated with ostrich plumes and tulle. This hat was popularized by Franz Lehar's operetta, The Merry Widow, which enjoyed huge success beginning in 1905. 


A black Merry Widow style hat is available here.

 

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAT SIZE:

  1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear.  You are measuring your head exactly where the hat will sit.
  2. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly and check the number. 
  3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size
