This is a really lovely hat in a classic shape.
Made in the 1930s, this piece is made from lacquered straw in inky black with a natural straw band around the outer brim. It is a close fitting piece, designed to sit slightly tilted on the right side of your head, and is trimmed with a cluster of cream and black flowers in a mix of silk and velvet.
This hat needs to sit fully on your head and will fit a maximum 21" head.
Inner band 21"
Crown at the deepest point 3.5"
Beautiful. It is in wonderful condition and looks to have been very rarely worn. The only minor points to note are;
- there are some very minor marks on the inner band
- at the back of the hat there are a couple of slightly rough areas where, I assume, someone has poked a hatpin through the straw
