This fancy vintage hat from the mid 1930s features 5 little crocheted flowers across it's front brim with pretty wire scrolling at it's sides, all to frame the wearer's face dramatically.

When we first spotted this, we thought 1940s...but the twisted metallic trim seemed older, so we searched a little more through our resource books. Sure enough, on page 391 of our R.Turner Wilcox book, "The Mode in Costume" there is a hat with similar shaping as this one; it is referred to as an "off-the-face" hat, and is dated to 1936.

The label on this is

Jacoll

Made in England

and it is also stamped on the inside:

Jacoll Hat

Manufrs 562 Regd No.

Maximum (??? can't make out the word following Maximum)

11/9

This has a soft ribbon liner; it measures 21.75" around that ribbon

The back brim is only 7/8" deep widening to 4" deep in front, while the

crown in only 2.5" deep in front, increasing to 5" deep in the back

It is 5" across the top circle of the hat.

This is in excellent condition. We have double deep frozen it (as we do with all woolens); it has been freshly brushed and is ready to wear.
