Vintage 1950s Orange Velvet Leaf Veil Hat Whimsy Birdcage Fascinator

A whimsical vintage floral headpiece from the 1950s. This lightweight fascinator perches on top of the head and can be secured with a few pins.

The spiky leaves are velveteen fabric in an ombré blend of light and dark orange. The flowers and feathers are on wire stems and can be adjusted to add more (or less) drama. The orange veil may be worn over the eyes or gathered up closer to the leaves if desired.

Designed by John Pico Harberger (“Mr. John”), a society hat designer with his own label from 1948 through 1970. Fabric label reads " Mr. John Caprice New York Paris".

Size: the floral grouping is approximately 8” x 7”

In very good vintage condition
