Exceptionally beautiful warm red felt hat from the late 1930s or early 1940s. Very Agent Peggy Carter!
Made in France, it is labelled "Haute Mode Marinette". A beautiful shape with a sweeping brim, the hat is designed to sit at an angle and has a really unusual "pointed" crown and is trimmed with black cotton ribbon. The crown is made up of 4 sections which have been sewn together to make two points.
Because the hat is meant to sit to one side and not actually fit fully on your head, it is suitable for a variety of head sizes.
Inner brim 20.5"
Depth of crown at the front 3"
It is in very good condition but there are some minor points to note;
- there is a pinhead hole on the right hand side of the brim when it is held up to the light
- there is a 2mm by 1mm hole on the crown
- the black band has been quite messily sewn on
