It is exceedingly rare to find an Edwardian hat of this style and condition that is not already in someone’s collection. This hat is a cloche with a large brim that is smaller in front and back and larger on the sides. The hat is black velvet and silk with many bells and whistles that are hard to describe so please check the picture. The frame may be horse hair, there is some used in the crown lining. This hat is amazing for the age and one of the rarest of the Edwardian era.
Brim: 3” Front, 4” Sides
Unbelievable Antique Victorian Black Silk & Velvet Hat
