Vintage 50s Bes-Ben Hat Pink Dogwood Floral Cap
An array of elegant pink sprays of dogwood blossoms adorn this lovely vintage ladies cocktail hat by the once famous "Mad Hatter" of Chicago -- Bes-Ben, circa 1950s.
The charming spring time chapeau is in the form of an open floral crown featuring pink plastic flowers and buds in the form of dogwood blossoms, with bright yellow stamens and decorative green leaves.
The hat has a star shaped wire frame with net foundation and two small hair combs along the underside. A bit of the original green veil still remains, however this can be easily replaced, left as is, or removed all together if desired.
It measures approximately 10 inches wide across the top, at its widest point – from blossom end to blossom end, and has an embroidered label for “Bes-Ben”, “Made in Chicago”, along with style number 272.
Very good condition – clean, vibrant, and intact.
