This 1950s kiddie cowboy hat was mine when I was a child. It is 100% wool felt, black with a black and white lanyard chin strap. I had another that I preferred, and did not wear this one very much.
This hat is unisex - perfect for that little cowpoke, cowboy or cowgirl !
A silver color metal steer head attachment decorates the front and adds interest.
The lanyard cord is in excellent condition with a black wooden slide and no damage. Around the brim, decorative stitching (slightly yellowed from age) is in excellent condition with no breaks and there are no rips in the holes punched into the hat.
Condition is extremely nice - NO fading, NO moth damage; NO rips or tears, NO stains, NO missing pieces. The only problem is that the vinyl sweat band has dried out from age and is torn in numerous places. This does not show for display. The sweatband could be replaced without a great deal of difficulty.
There is no manufacturer information. A sewn-in tag inside says 100% wool, and the word LARGE - a children's size large.
A nice find for someone looking for vintage children's western cowboy gear
