1940s Keneth Hopkins Chimney Hat,snood Veil,plumes,bakelite,hollywood Designer
Exotic And Really Outstanding. Stunning Vintage 1940s Hat From Hollywood Film Costume Designer And Milliner, KENETH HOPKINS. An Iconic Design. The Hat Is A TALL Chimney Of Supple Black Felt, Wrapped In Silk Velvet Ribbon Around The Top Of The Tall Crown And Topped With A Lush Triple Thick Ostrich Plume In Charcoal Black, That Gently Falls Forward To Cover The Tip Of The Crown And Has A Bit Of Bounce. In Front Are Two Large Carved Bakelite Millinery Ornaments/clips In Pretty Butterscotch Gold (real Bakelite). The VEILING Is Spectacular! A Fish Net Style French Veiling In Dark Black, Falls Nearly To The Shoulders And All Around The Entire Hat, With A SNOOD Effect/pouch On Both Sides In Back!! Yes, A Snood! Each Side Has A Sling Style And This Looks Fabullous When You Place Your 1940s Hair Do Inside, Or Wear It With An Up Do. Keneth Hopkins Blue Cream And Red Custom Label Is Hand Sewn Inside KENETH HOPKINS ORIGINAL. I Can See Rosalind Russel, Myrna Loy, Rita Hayworth Or Joan Crawford Wearing This, Can’t You? Keneth Hopkins Was A Milliner In Hollywood And He Designed Incredible Hats For Major Movie Stars And Major Films Including The Amazing Hats In The Fashion Show Sequence In "Cover Girl", "The Phantom Hat" (in Which The Hat Was Really The Star Of The Film) And More. A Contemporary And Friend Of Gilbert Adrian, Keneth Had A Penchant For The Outrageous When It Came To Millinery. His Hats Rarely Come To Market And This One Is One Of His Best. A Rare Find For The Serious Millinery And Fashion Collector. More Details Below. Thanks For Looking! I Show The Hat On A Full Sized, Adult Millinery Head (head Is Not Included). The Hat Stands About 13" With The Plume, With The Felt Hat Being 8" Tall. Due To The Deep Chimney Style, This Hat Fits Pretty Much Any Head From Small To Extra Large, Sitting Low Or High. Kenneth Hopkins (as It Is Mistakenly Sometimes Spelled) Designed And Made Hats For Films And Was Contemporary Of Adrian, Lilly Dache, And The Team Of John-Frederics. He Drew His Inspiration From The Arts, Paris, Nature And Birds, And His Own Incredibly Creative Mind. WE COMBINE To Save You Money On Postage.
