Offered is an amazing example of a 1950 style platter hat. The color reminds one of spring and summer gardens--a pastel aqua finished in fabric with a shantung like quality. The wide brim is tacked at the four corners and anchored with tiny pink millinery flowers. The crown is circled by a 1/4" velvet ribbon with tails hidden at the back. This is perfect for the spring/summer wedding or garden party. The platter sits on a platform edged in velvet. Details: 4 1/2" brim at the front, 2 3/4" at the back; 6 3/4" across the crown; 19" inner circumference of the platform; 13" wingspan. We found no label. There is a chin/chignon elastic strap, but it is loose and one would probably want to remove it. We found no stains and no holes. Note that we frequently encounter problems with high priced priority mail as the larger box to accommodate the wingspan balloons the rate. Original listing price $60 Item 3938a
