This fantastic deep espresso brown velveteen wide brimmed hat has a scalloped head wrap and opening in the top.
We've shown it on our mannequin with the deep scallops to the front, and to the back. We have to say, it is really attractive worn both ways.
This brim of this measures about 20" across, and the little scalloped edges fold over and lay nicely flat for shipping. We will NOT fold the brim of this to make it smaller to ship: it will be shipped laid flat out.
This is a purchase from another vintage vendor; we believe it is a theatre or costume piece. She shipped it to us folded, which was NOT as we requested..so it has now been laid flat between a layer of plush fabric (to keep from crushing the velvet), with light weights on it to flatten it back out. As you can see in a couple of the images, there is a very slight undulation to the brim.
This reminds us of fairy tale hats..we think it would be perfect as part of a Ren Faire or Halloween costume...think of characters from shows like Game of Thrones, Princess bride, Once Upon A Time...
It's very dramatic and very attractive on. In our opinion, this would be lovely to wear not just as a costume piece, but for it's bold style and warmth: it would keep your ears super cozy in the winter.
