Ladies' Regency Tricorn "Dante"
Please note that this is a MADE TO ORDER ITEM and as such, regretfully we are unable to accept returns.
Please do not order unless you are sure of your head measurement and also be aware that the colour may appear differently on various computer and device screens. If possible, make and appointment to pop in quickly for one of my team to measure your head and to be able to see the colour for yourself. There is no additional charge for this.
This hat is inspired by the three cornered hat worn by ladies during the "Regency Period". Worn "over the eye" at an angle, the proportions alter and are in balance with the wearer's face. The hat is kept in place by an elastic under the hair line at the back of the head, which pulls the hat onto the forehead. By tying a knot in the elastic the tension can be increased if needed so that it does not slip
This hat is a "percher" so will fit anyone from 54 cms to 63 cms.
Made from 4 layers of sinamay the hat is first before hand painted, along with the trimmings before they are stitched. When finished a further coat of acrylic varnish is applied to seal the paint. This process also maintains the durability against damage from rain. (Please note, the hat will get wet but when dried carefully it should look as it did before the shower...It is not a rain hat.)
By nature of the hand embellishment this hat is a unique piece and, while another version of a similar nature can be made to order, it will remain a unique piece.
