Designer purple wool felt hat with netting, bow and rhinestone. I have literally spent hours on this listing, from trying to get the coloring to show correctly, to figuring out the designer name, all without much success. First off, this is s pillbox style with front netting and a side bow with center rhinestone. It has a sharp purple grosgrain ribbon band inside with silk like under band that peaks out from under the wool felt. The felt feels like a soft brushed wool which gradually changes coloring from a soft darker tone around the edges, to a pale color at the top. I have no idea how this technique was accomplished.
The stamped designer mark inside is so difficult to read, and I'm not coming up with any name similar to it in vintage manufacturer listings. In green there is a form of a shield. The upper section has a name stamped in white that could be Dereta, a firm out of London, but that is a guess. In larger print is what looks like Melo-............, and below it in smaller print is a name that is very long ........................ ..K ....., then below that it looks like it may read New York. That is the best I could do, as vintage hats are not my expertise. I believe it would work for any size of head, but the grosgrain ribbon measures 20-1/8 inches.
