Black Matador's Hat

reinforced and decorated with strips of black plush material and black looped wool, embroidered on the crown in black frogging with an intricate star design, labelled inside ‘Santiago Pelaya | Leon, 8-Madrid’

[with:] a colour photograph of the hat in Epstein’s London flat, Waddon House, Knightsbridge (110 x 85 mm), and a black and white photograph on heavy stock paper of a matador holding a similar hat, thought to be taken by Epstein on one of his frequent trips to Spain, inscribed on the verso in pencil in an unknown hand ‘Epstein 13’ (186 x 128.7 mm)

According to the vendor, this hat comes from the collection of Epstein’s personal assistant.
