This hat is a smaller version of a saucer hat made of some type of woven jute like material. There is a velvet ribbon with bows coming down from each side and connecting in the middle. I believe that this would go underneath the back of the hair. There are also two velvet ribbons across the top of the hat. There is black netting all around the crown of the hat attached in four places culminating in a loose knot in the back. There is some soiling on the black grosgrain ribbon around the inside of the crown. The diameter of the entire hat is 10". The label has the number 22 on it but the inside circumference of the hat is 17".
