A definitive 1950's vintage navy blue close fitting crownless hat. Constructed from a somewhat transparent synthetic crinoline over a covered wire grip hat base, it is basically one large brim with beautiful horse hair lace ribbon decoration around the entire edge. It is finished off with two velvet medallions decorated with small pearl beads and rhinestones plus there is a small velvet ribbon bringing up the rear.
The internal label reads “Joan Howard Original” and size is adjustable as it spreads open to grip the head and is held on with hair pins.
Condition is EX with no flaws to mention. Pristine clean and fresh with no signs of use, no holes or missing beads and the internal velvet covered frame is like new fresh.
