This is a fabulous woman's straw hat made by the fashion house of Schiaparelli. The body of the hat is made of a very fine woven dyed black straw, probably a high grade parasisal. It has an abstract printed silk fabric applied to the underside of the brim and around the base of the crown. The fabric around the crown has a black grosgrain ribbon applied on it, made into a flat bow at the back. The brim is upturned at the front and much wider at the front, narrowing to the back. The hat has great form and style, as we would expect with a Schiaparelli design.
Label: Schiaparelli Paris.
The opening measures 21 3/4" around, so this hat should fit a small to medium sized head. Please measure your head to ensure fit.
The hat is in very good condition with no wear, tear or stains.
