A 1940's straw hat in Navy blue. The hat use to be my great grandmother's who was a professional Milliner and Tailor who made great hats and outfits for her customers. I believe she likely made this one. I say that because I have lots of her hats and three of the are made with the same braided straw, and this one has no label. She did not sew labels in her hats. This also has inner velvet band hand stitched into the hat. Well made and in perfect condition.
I'm a medium as far as my hat size, and this fits me and it could likely fit someone with a bit smaller head but not a larger head. It is 5 inches tall. Smart looking. Simple elegance…and that was my great grandma too!
