This is a lovely little hat in an unusual style.
Made in the 1950's this piece it is labelled "Cross-Keys". A beautifully shaped straw piece it is a small, close fitting design with a shaped crown which dips into a point in the front. It is trimmed with cotton velvet in a lovely soft blue and has a large ostrich feather plume trim.
Can be worn straight on the top of your head, as shown in the photos, or slightly tilted to one side.
Will work on a 21" head
Deepest point on crown 2.5"

- the upper is much lighter than the inner but the discolouration is all over and even
