This is a wonderful felt bucket hat dating to the 1950s. The felt has black and lighter red “squiggles” within the red background. The front wall has a slit in it through which you would insert a feather or other decorative accent. It presently has a feather that has a black celluloid plastic heart affixed to it. The piece is loose, but could be sewn in or temporarily affixed so that you could switch it out. The opening of the hat measures 23 1/2” around, but this has to pull down on the head, so this should fit a medium sized head. The hat has a height of about 6”. It is unlined and has the maker’s label affixed to the interior, which reads “Fait a la main Exclusif Joanne Mode Inc. 1310 Est, Mont Royal LA.1-4334”. It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear or soiling.
This is a fun 50s bucket hat - great color and wonderful decorative heart accent!
