This is a wonderful French Fashion hat and period box that I found years ago in Paris, France. It is beautifully constructed. I would date it as circa 1870. It would make a wonderful trunk accessory for a fashion doll. The crown of the hat is a stiff , open weave, netting material. It is adorned with brown and blue (a favorite combination) silk at the edge. There is a wire on the inside edge so it can be positioned as you would like. The top of the hat has several interesting silk flowers that decorate. The ties are a teal blue silk.
Condition: Hat is Excellent. Box has normal wear
Size: Box: 3" diameter Hat: 2 1/2" long x 2" wide (next to the silk ties)
A fantastic hat to add to your collection of accessories.
