This is a vintage early 60s era wide brim black straw hat with a black velvet crown. The crown has a black velvet decorative loop at the back. The label reads “Nathalie Montreal” - Nathalie was a well known Montreal milliner. The opening of the hat measures 20” around and the crown has a depth of about 3” at the front - the hat should sit on top of the head, so this should fit a range of small to medium sizes depending on how low onto the head that you would want to wear this. There is a cloth covered metal tab at either side that would aid in keeping the hat on the head - the distance between the two is 6”. Please take the above measurements and the style of the hat into consideration for fit. The hat measures 15 1/2” by 15 3/4” across. It is in very good condition - no wear, tear or soiling except for a slight bit of discolouration to the lining at the front, very minor - otherwise, this hat looks great and has been very well cared for over the years. Dramatic wide brimmed hat - sure to be noticed!
