This is a darling little hat by the designer Marion Valle. It sits sits on top of the head with the aid of a twisted elastic band that goes under the back of the hair to keep it in place. It is made of a brown shiny cellophane straw. Inside the depression in the top of the crown is a cluster of blue and white silk blossoms that trails down to the brim and covers the back part of it. There is a very wide brown satin bow of which part of it hangs down and the other part sits in the brim among the blossoms. There is a brown net veil around the brim of the hat that comes down to the nose and is accented with brown chenille dots. The underneath of the 1.50" brim is covered with widely pleated brown satin material on which there is some soiling near the front part of the hat. There is a hole in the netting in the front and the elastic cord is a bit stretched out. All in all it is in very nice condition with its age!
