I saw this hat and I fell in love with it! And it is very hard to part with it. The doll that is modeling that hat is a Steiner C that is currently offered in my shop. She is NOT included in this sale.
This lovely hat is made of a cream embroidered flannel fabric with loads of silk ribbons, net lace ruffles, silk fabric trim and silk threads! You have to look at the detail on this hat and see how extraordinary it is. Absolutely stunning. The front of the hat features oodles of face framing ruffled net lace, doubled over silk ribbon interspersed within the net lace and a double row of wired ruched silk ruffling. Wider silk ribbons are used on the top of the hat and also extend down the back. The back of the hat features silk ribbon embroidery on the cream colored flannel. And best of all: all that fringe made up of silk ribbons and silk threads! The fringe itself is almost 3" long! The inside of the hat is lined with silk. The ties are wide silk ribbon.
Condition: The flannel back does have areas of moth holes. Most are small, however there are a few larger areas, one area at the top is covered well by the silk ribbon. Please see pictures.
This hat is scrumptious and would be wonderful on a larger doll. The doll modeling the hat has a head circumference of approx. 15". I think the hat would work on a smaller head, but don't think I would go any larger than 15".
