Well,with this spectacular hat, everything is coming up Daisies....and Carnations!! This wonderful hat is almost completely covered with white Carnations and Daisies and just perfect for Springtime or Summer outings. The brim is slightly ruffled and has two layers of sheer white organdy with a single row of Carnations and Daisies covering half of the brim. The white Carnations have the slightest hint of pale green centers and the white Daisies have bright yellow chenille centers. There is a wide garden green velvet hatband at the base of the crown. The hatband is approximately 1 ½" wide and is mostly covered by all the flowers. All of this is applied to a molded and shaped white lacy base. The edge of the brim is finished with a white velvet border and there is a white grosgrain ribbon hatband on the interior of the hat. This "Light as a Feather" hat with it's cascades of flowers would make any lady look completely charming!
Condition: Almost Excellent
I say "almost" because the outside of this hat is in excellent condition. The only signs of wear are on the underside of the hat. Someone wore this hat and because it is white, there are some slight make-up stains on the grosgrain ribbon at the front where the forehead would have been. And, there is, also, a little makeup on the white molded base at the front of the hat. I believe that someone tried to clean this make-up stain off of the hat, as there is a faint watermark on the grosgrain ribbon. None of this can be seen when the hat is worn and does not detract form the overall beauty of the hat. I have tried to show this issue in one of the photographs.
