In a style we're dubbing "Mary Poppins-chic", this darling vintage hat is a bright and bold beauty that any collector will be thrilled to have.
The hat is made of coiled straw in a fantastic shade of cherry-red.
It has a small, flat crown and a great wide brim which gives the hat a touch of class with the added benefit of sun blocking protection.
This really is the perfect tea-in-the-garden hat.
A wide ribbon of navy-blue grosgrain wraps around the hat's outer-band and terminates at the back in a tiny square knot.
Our favorite part of this hat is the ENORMOUS navy grosgrain bow at the bottom.
Each side of the navy-blue grosgrain attached to the underside of the hat.
The big, bold bow is permanently knotted but features two small bands of elastic so it can be slipped comfortably under the chin.
Inside, the hat remains unlined as it is often unnecessary to include a lining in straw hats of such exceptional quality.
The inner-band is lined with a narrow strip of red grosgrain. This is where you find the original fabric tag which reads "Adjustable Head Size".
Finally, a little hatpin with a faux-pearl end sticks out of the back of the hat, giving the piece a cute finishing touch.
The grosgrain on the inside and outside of the hat show some minor wear and fading, though this great little hat remains in excellent vintage condition.
