Cute little hat from the 1950s.
I'm not sure what this piece is made from but it feels like a woven fabric which has been stiffened to simulate straw - what ever the fibre content, it's a sweet hat. A versatile piece, it can be worn on the top of your head, tilted to one side or worn at the back to frame your face. It has a wired frame which is covered with brown velvet and is trimmed with two little velvet bows.
The inner band measures 21"
Depth of crown 2.5"
Very good with two minor points to note;
- there is some slight wear to the velvet trim around the front edge
- there are some small rust marks on the crown of the hat
