Incredible high style genuine early 1940s vintage tall turban hat in yellow wool with a gathered draped front.
The top is so high it reminds me a pixie hat.
Truly one of a kind.
This 1940s turban in to sit toward the back of the head and it stands over 5 1/2 high. It is stiffened to support the shape.
The back has a pleat detail.
It is a soft wool mohair sweater type fabric in a golden mustard color.

One size fits all.
Although this hat is the height of vintage fashion it does have issues.
It is soiled from 70 years of poor storage and the interior stiffening fabric is deteriorating. A few moth marks are on the hat.
the soiling does not show up on the images but it is darkened at areas. I have not tried to clean this hat.
This hat deserves to be preserved and featured in a book since it is so unique and fabulous.
Being sold AS IS.
