1940s-1950s Vintage hat with a flourish that you will love; a Design Original; New York - Paris. Size medium, actually it is a one size fits most. Such a bit of fancy fun! Measurements: inside band is 22 inches, side to side it is 13 inches.
The very finely woven, white and navy blue, straw is stitched in narrow rows. A navy blue velvet ribbon pipping trims the brim in two places, The velvet falls at one side, in two dangles. At the bottom of each velvet piece, is a SPLASH of fine, navy tulle that is flocked with big white polka dots.
The inside band is navy blue gross grain ribbon. There is also a blue elastic thread. These were used to hold the hat securely at the back of the head. This is a great feature! You can move the hat to any angle and use the elastic band to hold it in place. It is however, quite stretched.
These were called "pancake hats" for obvious reasons. It can fit at any angle and so head size is not a problem.
Vibrant colors. No holes or wear to note. This tulle netting is to die for!
Label: Henry G. Ross Original, New York - Paris.
