LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a Victorian era over-sized hat in black velvet. It is a good example of the style of the day--it does not shy from attention. The velvet forms a pleated crown and pleated brim. The hat turns upward depending upon how one places it on the head. It ties at the chin which helps to anchor it. Two tear drop faux pearls form the 3" side decoration. The gathered black cotton lining confirms it age. The brim measures 4", it is 14" side to side and 14 1/2" front to back and 20" inner circumference. The frame appears to be wire. Please note: something of this age will have issues--they are: there are several brown pin dots on the crown and one pea size. The pleats on the brim show minor wear. The ties are frayed. We thought perhaps they were replacements, but they do match the fabric of the lining. Item 8285a
