Victorian Ladies Hat - Black

Item: 004598



Availability: Sold Out

“See-and-be-seen” hats found favor during the 19th century and were frequently paraded by ladies during their daily social gatherings. The more splendid the hat, the more effusive the compliments one could collect. Ah, the power of a hat.

Our version of this must-have millinery features faux flowers, delicate lace, a 30 inch net train, and an eye-catching, elegant plume from the Victorian’s favorite bird, the peacock. The black straw hat features a 2-inch brim and 4 inch crown covered with plush black velvet. Hat also features an elastic strap to hold into place. Made in the USA. One size fits most.

Great Hat
At first I thought this hat was too small for me, but then I tilted it forward and over one eye and it looked great. I love the long netting that hangs down the back. The peacock feather is dyed black so it has a little color in it, but mostly blends in with the rest of the black accessories. I wish there were more beads on the lengths of fishing line so the plastic didn't show, but since it is clear it doesn't really take away from the Victorian look.

Great Hat!
Great Hat! It's extremely well-made, and has a strong elastic band, so it won't fall off no matter how energetically I dance!

Victorian Hat Black
I love my black Victorian hat. I wore it for Victorian Days in Belvidere, NJ. It was a big hit. My dress was red trimmed in black and it was an awesome combination!

5 star hat.
I was looking for a black hat that was not too big. This one is just the right size. It is very pretty and very well made. I love the veil that hangs in the back looks beautiful. Another winner from Historical Emporium.

Beautiful and well crafted
This hat is beautiful and well crafted. It is not made of cheap materials. It looks excellent with my Gibson Girl wig. I like it so much, I'm thinking of wearing it to 2016 Derby! Excellent value for the price!

such a great hat!
I absolutely love this hat. I was worried it might be too small because many hats are for me. It sits forward perfectly and looks great. It stays on without any needed bobby pins and is very light. I wore it for a turn of the century party however will wear it again at a day at the races as it truly is a stunning hat. The packing was very protective so it arrived in great shape.

Great hat!
This was my first hat purchase from Historical Emporium, and I was not disappointed. The hat is beautiful, and much lighter weight than I anticipated, which is great. I was concerned that it might be too big and bulky, but it's the perfect size and stays put beautifully.
