Rare 1950s Couture Christian Dior Glass Berries Hat

If you collect hats you will be thrilled to see this little beauty as it is just exceptional. I am dating this to the early 1950s and I have to admit that I have not seen a hat this wonderful before. The cap base is made of a woven palm leaf that has been hand dyed red. Onto this are little burst of berries. Each hand placed. What is remarkable is that each of this berries is actually a small glass ball painted red. They are set so that they move and lightly brush against each other making a whispering tinkling noise. It is just extraordinary and a real treasure for the collector or hat lover.

It is made to just sit on the top of the head and so doe snot have a true hat size as it should fit any size head.
