Bombonera restaurada

Mi experiencia me dice que no se puede minusvalorar un sombrero por muy chafado, sucio, viejo o roido que esté.

Este es el caso de la pieza que traigo esta semana; formaba parte de un lote junto a otros sombreros más interesantes, y este quedó relegado porque tenía marcas de polilla. Procedí a su limpieza pero en principio descarté su restauración.

Sombreros en sus perchasSin embargo, lo colgué en un lugar visible y siempre que pasaba a su lado le echaba un vistazo hasta que logré cuadrar los agujeros que tenía: dos de ellos simétricos. Intuyo que un pincho o alfiler de sombrero servía de sujección a tan delicada bombonera y su velo.

Para aportarle volumen y hacer sus formas más marcadas, lo adorné con un velo moderno, que ilumina el blanco roto del fieltro.

My experience has taught me that you cannot undermine a hat even if it may be old, dirty, crumpled or snagged.

This is the case of the piece that I bring to you this week. This hat formed a part of a set of hats that were much more interesting. I pushed it into the background because it was moth-eaten. At first I started to clean it, but then I put it to one side and decided not to repair it. However, I hung the hat in a visible place and each time I walked passed it I looked at it until I realised that the two holes it had were symmetrical. I assume that a hat pin was used to pin and fasten this delicate hat and its veil.

In order to give it volume and make its features stand out, I adorned it with a modern veil that lightened the oyster-colour of the felt.
