Unique item in porcelain that looks like a man's straw hat with a colorful plaid hat band, but probably was designed as a container since the inside is glazed. The outside is textured to feel like straw. I am not speculating as to what it was original meant to be, but it would work perfectly as a pin holder or a ring holder. There are no marks as to maker but the inside has a gold luster emblem of some type that may be significant. It is a beautiful piece that is approximately 3-3/8 x 4 inches.
