VHTF Vintage "Commuter Set" Hat

 

from 1959 barbie fashion #916

 

Description



 
This item is included in the 1959 Barbie Estate Collection  
 
     
  From the original owner, this red petal cloche silk Commuter Set Hat is gorgeous -- very fluffy and vibrant.  It has been in storage since the 1960's and has never been traded in the vintage Barbie community.

As you can see in the photos, there are some frays as well as some discoloration on the bottom of the band and at the ends of a few petals, which are more noticeable in the magnified photo.  I think the band discoloration is possibly where the hat attached to the card.  But the band is still bendable and works as it should to attach to Barbie's head.  The form of the hat and how it falls is exceptional.  Better than most that you'll see.
