Vintage c1930s black straw Skimmer hat adorned with beautiful organdy roses. It is made with a fine Panama type black straw. There is a pink net with little chenille dots on the crown, and then forming a bow in the back. The roses are in pinks and deeper rose tone.
The brim is moderately wide, and gently undulates around the face and head. Fairly flat crown (hence Skimmer). A true "come hither" flirty 1930's hat.
This is a great hat to add to your collection.
CONDITION: Excellent as found condition. Straw is supple, Some very very minor age stains on light pink organdy roses....these show in photos. Net is slightly faded on crown. It has a couple of tiny breaks. None of these issues really detract.
SIZE: Meant to sit on top of head.....20-1/2 - 21". It is too shallow to really fit on your head. Approx 15" diameter...the shape is more oval.
