This is a very unusual 1940's cartwheel hat combining seemingly incongruous materials of velvet and straw together with a very pleasing outcome. The hat has a circle of red velvet at its center measuring 6" in diameter with two cardboard covered stylized bows at either of its sides. The straw brim measures 6" in the front of the hat and 4" in th back of the hat. The interior of the hat has been fitted with a red velvet secondary construction which holds the hat in place and measures approximately 22" in circumference. This unique millinery creation is in excellent vintage condition.
