This is a beautiful beret recently acquired from an estate. The beret is in very dark navy blue and has a leather band around the inside with a brown satin lining. The label reads Beret De Luxe Hoquy Impermeable Pure Laine Fabrique En France. The tag inside states dry cleaning only and Size S. It does have a 22" circumference and a 2" crown. Laying flat, the diameter across the top is 11".
This beret is beautiful and has never been worn. It is clean, but could use a nice brushing as the wool tends to pick up lint. There are no odors at all. This beret could be worn by either a woman or a man.
