"Beaded Chartreuse" Vintage 1950's Chartreuse Green Felt Beaded Hat

This breathtaking 1950's chartreuse green felt hat, decorated with trailing beadwork and sequins, is a rare piece to behold.

Her elegant shape, boasts a rounded crown with a felt border, intertwined with a strand of pearlised beads. Her brim boasts slight scalloping to the the front and slims towards the back, setting off the matching chartreuse green felt bow. Decorated with silver glass bugle beads, pearlised bugle beads and sequins in shades of bronze and irirdescent pearl and finished with a border of pearlised beads and gold sequins along the edge of the brim.
Her internal structure boast a gabardine ribbon and a small sewn in hair slide to secure the hat in place. I recommend using a hat pin for added stability.
