Caspar-Davis Lives Again

My recreation of a 1940s Caspar-Davis double faux bird tilt hat. The hat body is constructed out of a 1940s black wool felt capeline, and has a wired circular felt band in back to hold the hat onto the head. The hat body is circular, with a decorative side tuck. Two faux birds (1930s/1940s) grace the top of the hat, and a gorgeous chin-length section of 1940s vintage veiling completes the piece!
