A fabulous example of a late 1930s/early 1940s hat.
Labelled E.Schoeder Vennemindevej 29, it was made in Denmark. Made from inky black felt it has a gorgeous shape which is close fitting at the back of your head and can be worn pushed back to frame your face or can be worn more forwards and tilted slightly to one side. A wide, sweeping brim it is finished off with a warm red trim. The felt is a wonderful thick felt so the brim holds its shape and doesn't flop.
No size label but it works well on a 22" but to ensure that it will fit you please compare the measurements below to a similar item you already own;
Inner band 21.5"
Depth of crown in the back is 5.5"
The hat is in beautiful condition, the only minor points to note are;
- there is some make up on the inner band
- there are a few very small marks on the upper
