Vintage 1960's Cloche or Bowler Hat in Black and White Stripe with Grosgrain Ribbon and Bow.
The cloche hat found a revival in the 1960's after originating in the 1920's. This hat is a wonderful example of the 1960's revival. I would probably call it a cross between a cloche and bowler but it's a fun style and a great striped design.
The hat is a coated "faux straw" resin type material, which is great for withstanding the test of time. It has been stored for quite some time and there is a little extra roll to one side, as well as an indentation to the top, that will work themselves out with wear and a little self molding. I am working on it daily, so by the time it gets to it's new home, these issues may be resolved. Fortunately the material of the hat makes it easier to mold. Should you choose to, you could fold down the small roll permanently, giving it a much more "cloche" look, but I'll leave that up it's new owner.
The hat's inner circumference is 23". It has a height of 5 1/4". The ribbon measures 1.5" wide.
Excellent condition with no discoloration or wear of any kind.
Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, please feel free to call me with any questions.
