This is an easy to wear black velvet beret made by Irene of New York and sold at the Lord & Taylor Salon.  The hat is made of excellent quality velvet, very soft to the touch.  The button on the top of the hat is decorated with a row of black sequins.  The opening measures 20 1/2” around, but this is supposed to fit on the top of the head, so this should fit a range of sizes small to medium.  The hat measures about 10” in diameter and has some height to it.  This beret would date to the 1960s.  It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or soiling - this has been very well cared for over the years.

The Irene behind Irene of New York was Irene Stone - her hats were sold through the finest department stores such as Bonwit Teller, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and, of course, Lord & Taylor.  This is a wonderful black velvet beret!
