This is part of a group of lovely old store stock hats I found at a local estates sale. This one is a wonderful bright red satin with ruffles & ribbon trim. The ribbon is a lovely pinkish color with black & white trim. The edges of the ruffling has a tiny picot trim. The tie is red silky material & has not been cut so never used. There is a small stain on the ribbon tie & there is some light wrinkling from storage. It is too small to fit on my adult head form so I believe it was meant for a child. Would also be nice on a large German bisque doll as well. It measures approx. 7" across the front, 6 1/2" deep, 15" around the brim & about 23" around the whole outside. It is lined with a nice sturdy cream color material. There is a small area along the edge where the lining has pulled away. Would be a simple fix but prefer to leave to the new owner. The varied red colors make it a striking piece.
