This pretty little hat is just the perfect piece to finish off your summer outfit.
Made in the late 1940's or early 1950's and labelled Marche Exclusive, it is made from cream straw. A shallow crown and neat brim, it is trimmed with a velvet ribbon and large fabric flower with two little flower buds.
It has an elastic to help keep it in place.
Designed to sit on top of your head rather than fully down on your head, it will work on up to a 22" head.
Inner band 18.5"
Front to back 9"
Depth of crown 1.5"
Structurally very good with just a couple of small points to note;
- the flower shows quite a lot of wear and some discolouration
- there are a few small spots on the crown
- the velvet band has some mild discolouration
