This beautiful wool felt ladies hat has a lovely textural contrast and is trimmed with a gorgeous bunch of tiny black roses on the side and a black textured satin band. The wide brim is black felt and the entire crown is covered in black sequins. Stylish 15 1/2” x 15 1/2” brim and a 3 3/4” crown, this hat would be fabulous for any special fall or winter event from a party or a wedding or Sunday go to church. Or just dress up your jeans!
Measures 22” around measured on interior on black grosgrain ribbon, with Whittall & Shon label. Made in USA. In excellent condition with no flaws I can find. A proper topper! The brim has been steamed and blocked for evenness by professional dry cleaner. See last pic. It also has a wire under trim to hand form brim edge.
