This is an elegant classic shaped black mink, fur hat/headpiece. The classic design of this hat, combined with the quality of vintage fur, creates a timeless look and feel. The mink is exceptionally soft and shiny. The inside white, black and red label indicates, “Sally Victor Headlines.” Victor’s labels changed over the decades and this one was introduced in the 1950’s and was also used in the 1960’s when Victor designed hats for Sears. The inside circumference measures approximately 6”. One size fits most with this kind of hat/headpiece. I remember my Aunt wearing it positioned predominantly at the back of her head.
To this day, Sally Victor is considered one of the most successful and innovative American milliners for the period. Her career as a hat designer began in the 1920’s. Her hats remained popular through her retirement in 1967. She was a very prolific designer and her hats were worn by many First Ladies (Mamie Eisenhower, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman and Jackie Kennedy.) Elizabeth II was a long-time customer. Victor’s customers also included many stars of the stage and screen.
It is in excellent condition with no stains, tears or loose stitching. No odor, no shedding, no bald spots. Cash only. Pickup in New Hyde Park, Nassau County, Long Island.
