1930s Cartwheel Fancy Straw Hat 21 inches Across. The inside band is about 21 inches. This was made to fit one size. It was made about the time Gone with the Wind was filmed. Dating information comes from the original owners estate. Later cartwheel hats from the 1940s and 1950s were not quite this wide.
This is an amazing hat. From a fabulous estate.
Handwoven, golden tone straw hat has a wide black velvet band and wide bow accent. Tucked around the band are three magnificent, looped straw flourishes. In the center of each is a group of straw button like knots. The edge, also hand woven is done in a different pattern than that of the hat. It has triangles accenting the woven edge.
There are lots of pictures. Please send any questions after viewing them all.
The inside band is black gross grain ribbon. There is a narrow elastic meant to fit under the hair at the back. The label is : Riley Original Design.
Excellent vintage condition. This is a strong hat. Color is even (soft golden straw) No stains or soiling. Note: 3 small breaks in the very edge that are 1/2 to 1 inch. All are pictured.
