A Knowlton, Fifth Avenue straw hat dating from the later 1930's or early 1940's. The natural color horsehair is sewn into a wavy design making it a very interesting weave. Reminds me of ocean waves.The ribbon trim is a faille in a rust brown color. This same ribbon also covers the very edge of the brim. A matching color veil adds an additional accent.
The hat is a wide brim measuring 2-3/4" wide . Height of the crown is 2" tall.
Size label on the inside of crown is 23. Actual circumference measurement around the inside of crown is 22".
Condition is very nice
