Here is a toy, miniature or salesman's sample man's straw dress boater or skimmer hat with original maker's label and leather sweat band. The hat is woven of alternating light green dyed straw and natural colored straw. It has no band at the crown edge. There are 3 rows of green straw braid that give the illusion of a band. The hat has a label for F. J. Valentin and Co., Genova , Italy. The hat is 6" front to back and 5& 3/8" side to side, Crown is 1.75" deep, 3.5" front to back and 3" side to side. Sweat band is brown finished leather1" deep with bow in back. I see 1 little dark spot on the brim. May be imperfection in the straw. Hat is sturdy and in good condition as shown. I date it to about 1930.
