1920s Shorewood Bead & Lame Cloche

This is a pretty flapper cloche or skull cap made by Shorewood. It is rare to find a labelled piece from this time period so when you do you know it was special! The exterior has held up well. It is a pretty combination of gold metallic thread crocheted in rows emulating from the center. Blue cording adds detail and clear glass tube beads swirl around the edges and in towards the center mimicking feathers. The gold has oxidized and settled into a deep bronze color. The inside is lined in gold hued silk that has started to shatter. It could easily be removed and the hat will be just as stable and wearable, however the label is stamped in the upper inside crown so i have left it as found. Priced according to condition, it is still extremely wearable and for me the patina these early pieces gain add to their shabby chic allure!
