This vintage 1960s dark coffee bean brown fur felt hat was made under the Genevieve Original label. The body of this wide brim hat was made in Austria and is very nice and soft. The rounded crown is high and at the base of the crown there is a nice laced effect detail instead of an outer hatband. Three strips(two of them are made of thin dark brown grosgrain ribbon and the other is mad from beige fur felt) are woven through holes in the base of the fur felt crown. The two ribbon strips have small ties at the ends that can be seen in the photos of the back of the hat. The felt brim is not stiff and is not wired, but it does have some body and is not totally floppy as some hats from the 1960s were. The inside of this very stylish is unlined.

This hat is very clean and appears to have been worn very little and cared for well. There are no issues to note regarding condition.
