How does the color purple make you feel? People often describe this color as mysterious, spiritual and imaginative. Purple tends to occur infrequently in nature, so it is viewed as rare and intriguing. That pretty much sums up Iris, our lovely vintage bridal veil! She falls somewhere between orchid and lilac on the purple scale, warm and inviting. Iris's half-cap headpiece is comprised of folded fabric and comes to points on both sides. Underneath it is lined with buckram and lace trim. A double layer of 15" tulle can be used as a blusher. The single back layer of veiling cascades 38" down from the headpiece. Likely handmade in the 1950s, she is in flawless condition. Headpiece: 15" over top from one side to other), 5" from crown to bottom. This regal beauty will make you a true vintage Princess Bride!
