Vintage 60s Purple Velour Pillbox Hat Mr Flemming Montreal Ladies Size S M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage 60s hat made of purple velour in a pillbox shape. The hat is stamped on the interior with “Fine Imported Velour” and has a Canadian milliners’ union label affixed to it. The hat is made in a squared shape and decorated with light grey grosgrain ribbon crossing at the top where there is a small looped bow. The opening measures 21 5/8” around the sweatband, so this should fit a small size, but because it sits on the back of the head, then maybe a medium size could use it. It is in very good condition with no wear or tear and is very clean.
Label: Mr Flemming Boutique. Mr Flemming was a trademark used by Kates Millinery of Montreal during the 1960s. I’m unclear if the name was acquired by financial acquisition.
This is a wonderful hat featuring a striking purple colour and an attractive pillbox shape!
