Flapper velvet skull cap, late 1920s
By the late 1920s, the bell shaped cloche was pared down even more to become a skull cap. The streamlined modernism, seen in all aspects of design, seems fresh and relevant today.
This essential flapper accessory is fashioned from black velvet embellished with rows of tucks. The hard-edged skull shape is softened with a large bow in back. The bow and the outer edge of the cap are lined with black satin. The cap is decorated with a delightful plastic floral pin set with rhinestones.
Skull caps are perfect for bad hair days—just tuck your hair up inside the cap and forget about it.
The condition is excellent.
The opening circumference is 21 1/2".
