This Edwardian or later style hat, with its fabric of silk faille mixed with artificial horsehair braid, speaks of the opulence so associated with the early 1900's through the early 1920's. Suitable for research display, history, museum, costuming.
The crown and inside lining are made of a blue (more of a slate blue) faille fabric, with the brim in an artificial horsehair braid. The hat is accented with a fuzzy short golden rod yellow feather. Small decorative fabric flowers embellishes the feather.
The hat is a bucket style, with a narrow brim measuring 1-1/2" to 2-1/2" wide. The brim is upswept at the back. As mentioned, the inside crown and underside of the brim are lined in the faille fabric.
Measurement: Height of the crown is 4-1/2" tall. Diameter across the hat (including brim) is 11-1/2". Length from back to front (including brim) is 13-1/2" front to back. Circumference around the inside of crown is 22".
Condition is very nice. You may find a couple tiny spots but the hat is very nice. Appears not to have been worn much at all.
