This is a fabulous hat in a very hard to find shade.
Made in the 1940's and labelled "Lincoln Bennett" it has the classic bonnet shape from the early war years.
A neat fitting crown and a smart wired brim, which is deeper in the front than the back, it is trimmed with two large fabric flowers. Made from a medium weight straw, it is the perfect summer hat!
Deepest point of crown 3.5"
Structurally it is very good but there are some minor points to note;
- the flowers are a little crumpled in places and the wires on the backs of the leaves have corroded and some have snapped
- there are some small rust marks scattered across the hat - see photos
- there is some very minor fade which is all over the hat, you only notice it if you compare the underside with the top
