Vintage 1950s Cocktail Hat Cele Logan New York Holt Renfrew Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful cocktail hat dating to the 1950s. The hat was made by Cele Logan of New York and sold by Holt Renfrew & Company of Canada. The hat is constructed of linear textured black silk over buckram in a small saucer shape with prominent bow at the front. The hat measures 8“ in diameter, and because the hat sits on top of the head, this should fit a medium sized head. There is a wire prong at either side that would secure on the head - it measures 6 1/2” across the prongs. It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or soiling but the silk is wavy on the crown probably because the buckram has developed unevenness in storage - this can be rectified with a re-block, although, personally, I’m not sure that it is at all necessary as the hat looks fine as is, unless imperfection bothers you. In addition, the fabric on the prongs is worn at the tips, very minor. This is a very cute cocktail hat - great look with the large bow at the front!
