Vintage White Rabbit Fur Saucer Hat, Hochschild Kohn, ca Late 1950s, Early 1960s

$75.00 USD


Can't you just see Audrey Hepburn wearing this one? This iconic white fur hat is in excellent vintage condition; I can find no flaws. The interior label reads: Hochschild Kohn & Co., Baltimore.

Hochschild's, a 20th-century American department store chain based in Baltimore, was started in 1897 as a high-end department store and became a Maryland chain, closing in 1983.

The snow white rabbit fur hat is lined in a white satin material. As with most saucer hats of this era, it is actually a hat within a hat, both pieces edged in white velvet: the interior piece is what fits tight to the top of the head and measures approximately 19" in diameter; there are tabs on either side for gripping the head. The outer portion measures approximately 27" in diameter; there is a 4 1/2" overhand in the front between the inner portion and the outer. The hat stands approximately 4" high.

What a wonderful addition to your vintage hat collection this would be; it is is sure to enhance your vintage or contemporary ensemble and is a prime example of wearable 1950s - 1960s textile art and style.
