    Help - I don\'t know my chapeaux!

    Truly, my knowledge of hats is nil. This one is pink (silk?) chiffon 'petals', plastic (definitely plastic) leaves & a scattering of pearls. Great undulating shape. Looks like something to wear to Ascot, or the Henley Regatta - that sort of thing. But I don't have a clue as to era.

    Carolyn...those look like holly leaves on the pink, which doesn't make one bit of sense!

    I'm going to guess 60s, and I'm worse than you with

    I would go with c. 1960ish
  4. I have always loved your manny. Carolyn, those are wonderful pictures. You can see every detail! I have no idea on the date, but if they are plastic flowers, it probably is 60s. Very pretty..

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Oh, and news flash: the leaves aren't plastic - more like a coated fabric. Not sure how to describe them, but they're slightly less cheesy than they sound (& look?) -

    If it's any help, that style of hat was popular for Easter Sunday church wear among the more well-off rural ladies around '62-'63.

    Bee that is a big help....especially since a lot of us are
    totally clueless when dating hats.
