This is such a beautifully woven black straw hat made by Marida in England. The quality straw is as light as a feather and so fine and smooth. The crown is rounded and the brim is wired and fairly wide. There is an outer black grosgrain ribbon hatband surrounding the base of the crown. At the back of the hat is a very large brilliant red silk flower with several green leaves and cloth stems. The hat has an inner black grosgrain ribbon sweat band and is unlined.
Condition: Very Good
The outer hat has no issues to note and is in very good condition. There is an issue to note on the inside front of the hat. There is some soiling from makeup that is on the inner sweat band and also there is a bit on the straw. I think this soiled area appears to be worse in the photos than it actually appears when you are actually seeing the hat in person. The label also has a very small bit of soiling. Neither of these issues can be seen on the outer hat and will not be seen when the hat is being worn.
