This is an utterly charming little hat.
Made in the 1930s, it has a very close fitting crown with a wide brim with is beautifully shaped on the right hand side - see photos.
It is made from brown straw which is slightly coarse and has a lovely texture. It is trimmed with a broad rust coloured polka dot ribbon which is pinned with a little feather brooch in autumnal shades.
This piece has to fit fully on your head and will work on up to a 22" head.
Depth of crown 4"
Good with points to note;
- in the back of the hat, on the inside, there is a fabric patch and on the outside of the hat where the patch is, the straw is slightly coarse. If looks like the straw has been damaged due to a hat pin being used multiple times. The repair is strong and the hat is in otherwise lovely condition but I don't recommend you use a hatpin in the same spot.
- the ribbon is slightly faded and discoloured
