Styled like a top hat with seamed crown. Fabric covering the crown is patterned with diagonal pinstripes while the short brim is in a flat black fabric. Hat band is a black fabric. Beautiful large pink silk rose sets off to the side. Delicate veiling can be worn down on the face or tucked back up on the brim. Veiling is held in the back with a beautiful large pearl and rhinestone hatpin. I think that is the only thing holding the veil on the hat so it would be easy to remove.
Interior is lined in a black acetate with the standard petersham band.
Lovely condition with only one issue which is some makeup stains on the interior ribbon.
Inner circumference is 21 1/2 inches. Crown is 4 1/2 inches.
Label is Beresford. Hugh Beresford is known as the milliner to the Queen as he has designed for Queen Elizabeth.
