Beautiful wide brimmed straw hat - just perfect for the summer.
This gorgeous hat was made in the 1940s from natural coloured straw. It has a shallow crown and a wide, circular brim. The crown is trimmed with chocolate brown grosgrain and the hat is finished off perfectly with a cluster of fabric flowers in blue, yellow, white and green.
Because this design is meant to sit on the top of your head, it is a one size fits all.
