During the war, as we know, clothing was rationed (out of 40 coupons a year, a coat would take 16, a suit or 'costume' 12); the exception was hats - no coupons required - hurray! Hence, I imagine, the injunction to the woman suffering a fit of the blues to cheer herself up by buying a new hat; and who could fail to be cheered by this one? In a delicate shade of powder blue, it not only has a pleasingly curved shape, but is trimmed with a bow as well!

It has a medium high crown, and the shape at the front imitates the turban so popular at the time. There are one or two little dimples in the felt on top - tiny faults, and invisible in wear - but no marks as far as I can see. It's unlined, but very clean inside and out, and measures approximately 22 inches (56 cms) in circumference.


Princess Mimi believes that you can only feel confident about buying lovely things on the internet if you can have a really good look at them. Here are all the pictures she has of this item - as usual, clicking on any picture will produce a large version of the picture - some of the files can be quite large....
