1950s navy blue fur felt hat by famous designer Walter Florell under the label, Mr. Walter. The hat has a satin fabric ring on top, with a hat pin. On the side is a modern "half bow" accent. It is in good condition, but there are a few moth nibbles to be seen upon careful inspection.

From his Obituary in the New York Times ....."In his heyday, Mr. Florell designed for a number of famous women, including the Duchess of Windsor, Greta Garbo, Gertrude Lawrence, Gloria Swanson, Hope Hampton, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. He also worked on Broadway shows such as ''Harvey'' and ''The Voice of the Turtle'' and on movies such as ''Easter Parade'' and ''Sunset Boulevard.'' He has hats on displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Although primarily a milliner, he also designed hairdos, clothes and furs and is credited with putting Carmen Miranda into fruit-filled turbans and cork-soled platform shoes to compensate for her diminutive size."
