Vintage calote, calotte or Juliet caps. Vintage hats 1920s-1940s.

Calotte hats are rounded and fit close to the head. The capulet hats are also known as a Juliet cap, as in Romeo and Juliet-- Juliet's last name was Capulet. The skullcaps were popular in the 1920s through the 1940s and were made with a variety of materials and styles. Sometimes the hat had a stem on center top, a veil or a snood.

Take a look at the at the calot in the vintage advertisement  for Chesterfield cigarettes --
