Authentic 1920s hand-made cloche hat with gold sequins and beading in a taupe-y beige color. Close fitting hat is traditional flapper costume accessory and typical of the roaring 20s. The sequins are hand-sewn on the hat in a geometric pattern. The fabric is possibly silk or a silk taffeta. The hat is lined with a similar color fabric. She has some issues, there are beads and sequins missing, the fabric is splitting and delicate in areas and some of the sequins are corroded. The lining of the hat also needs some re-attaching where the stitching has loosened/broken. I've tried to show the most significant issues in the photos. Surprisingly, I would say 90% of the hat is in tact and truly lovely for it's age and usage. I would suggest it be handled carefully since it does seem delicate. It would be a wonderful restoration project or as a treasured addition to a hat or 1920s costume collection.
