This charming little summer straw topper features a whimsical pinkish-red tassel detail with two fancy pins to one side.
The label: Junior B, which also has two littles bees on it!
This hat has three layers, the top being a beautifully woven natural straw, the next is a band of tiny tucked tan chiffon, with the bottom being lush black velvet.
6.5" from edge of center back, to center top
Junior B is one of the many labels designed by Chicago milliner Lucylle Smith Gilbert, who designed hats for First Ladies Mamie Eisenhower and Pat Nixon, as well as for Carol Channing and many other prominent women of the day.
On our first inspection, this appeared to be perfect, however, as we're photographing it, there appears to be a very light water mark on the tan layer (we've included an image for you to inspect, photo #8). So, unfortunately, we're pricing lower, accordingly.
