Who was Christine Original

Christine Orginal was a major milliner during the 1940s through the 1960s.  Some newspaper ads show a photo of a “Miss Christine” but we can’t find any information on if there really was a Christine.

A close hat is a 1950s term for a shallow-crowned brimless hat that fits close to the head, usually covering only the top portion of the crown. They were originally are worn square (not tilted) on the top of the crown, exposing the forehead. They come in many shapes and often have veils. Today they look equally fabulous tilted on the head.  From Hatatorium:  An Essential Guide for Hat Collectors, 2nd Edition.

NOT SHIPPABLE TO ITALY due to Italian customs prohibition.
