Sequined net evening cap, late 1920s. Here is the 20s look of streamlined modernism with a charming turned up brim; a look that again seems fresh and relevant. You will be the party's darling cynosure in this one-of-a-kind, elaborately embellished cap with gold and orange silk braid, bronze metallic braid, and bronze sequins on a ground of black net. An ultra-fashionable cap like our evening cap would been part of a stylish, modern wardrobe in America as well as in England in the late 1920s. 1920 S, Black Nets, 1920S Sequins, Modern Wardrobes, Sequins Hats, Bronze Sequins, Orange Silk, Embellishments Cap, Late 1920S
