Authentic vintage 1940s WW2 era fascinator hat with draped scarf in back. Small round button covered in ruched and pleated navy blue rayon crepe fabric. Two scarf panels in back, gathered in thread loop to arrange rolled hairstyle into. Dark red silk hydrangea flowers, green tube stems and navy velvet bow perches on top. Choosing vintage is a simple way of reducing waste for a healthier planet.
Condition: Very good vintage condition, slight wear inside band, slight misshape, nice even color. The 2 leaves on top rusted and sad, I would remove them. See photos.
Maker: labeled J A Kirven Co Columbus Ga and Consumer Protection Union Label. 1938 to 1950s
After US Congress declared FDR’s NRA law unconstitutional as part of his New Deal program in 1935, labeling changed to reflect rebranding after the Fair Labor Standards Act was passed in 1938. The name changed, but the idea renamed the same: All pieces with the Consumer’s Protection Label were made under fair working conditions (workers paid at least minimum wage, time and half for overtime and no employment of minors in oppressive work environments).
Size: Measures 7-1/2" inside diameter , 6-1/2" scarf in back.
