Fantastic Millinery Art Piece, individually labeled "Blazsak"
Toque style fitting overhead. Somewhat flexible structure will also w to fit many sizes. As a reference, it measures approx. 7 inches across forehead arch top line. It also measures 7 inches wide (top front to back straight line)
Front translucent faceted crystals are pink rose colored. Purple silk leaves have a "black" peer dot bead on the end of each one (although upon close look, you might notice some are missing). It has hand-stitched grosgrain ribbon over the top silk satin purple fabric. This is most likely an homemade dressing up or theatrical prop of some description and someone by the name of Blaszak has given it a name tag inside so it doesn't get lost.
True Vintage Accessory, c. unknown.
It will be carefully wrapped to ensure its safe travels. It would make a wonderful gift to many millinery lovers.
talkingfashion: Blaszak is a reasonably common surname, and the label is likely to be a name tag that identified the hat as belonging to the person who is supposed to be wearing it as part of their fancy dress costume in a play or similar.
The only association of the name Blaszak with millinery is that a man (German I think) with that surname patented a box design at one time, which was known for its odd triangular shape. Some milliners did like to use a similar-shaped box for storing men's hats so they didn't get crushed in dressing rooms, but as far as I know it isn't a name associated with actual hats at all.
