This is an exceptionally beautiful hat.
Made in America in the 1940s by Austelle, it is made from felt in a rich Kelly green shade. A close fitting back section which hugs to your head and a wired circular section, almost like a beret in shape, which has a ruffled felt trim. It is lined with black fabric and thick net to help keep the shape.
It is labelled 22.5" and isn't meant to fit fully on your head but to sit on the top and tilted to one side.
Beautiful. It looks to have barely been worn. Minor points to note;
- very faint mark on the inner brim
- two small moth grazes to the upper layers of felt - one on the top and the other on the underside - see photos
It will be boxed for posting. Standard postage within the UK only covers you for £50 compensation in the unlikely event the hat goes missing or is damaged. It you want it sent fully insured please select upgraded shipping at checkout.
