Darling Chocolate Brown 1940's Wool Beanie Shaped Hat with Matching Hat Pin

This charming vintage hat dates from the 1940s, and embodies the decade's style to a tee!

Made of the highest quality wool and casein blend, the chocolate-brown hat has a simple shape with a domed crown and turned-in brim.

As you can see, the brim curves under and culminates at the inner-band which is lined with a narrow band of dark brown grosgrain ribbon.

A fun, matching hat pin at the back of the cap gives the piece a nice finishing touch. The hatpin has a large piece of matching wool attached to the end, giving the overall motif a nice congruity.

Finally, you will find a manufacturer's mark imprinted on the underside of the crown. The turquoise-blue mark shows a fair amount of wear, making some areas illegible. The legible areas read "94% Wool, 6% Casein".

Casein is a milk-protein occasionally used in hat making to give woolen hat-bodies added stiffness and lasting power.

Thought the interior shows some inconsequential wear, this darling little hat remains in excellent vintage condition.
