This is an absolutely glorious broad-brimmed hat, covered in ruffles and layers of tulle - unique and stylish! It would be wonderful for a wedding, or - being black - equally suitable for a funeral, smart enough for the races, demure enough for Sunday Church....I love it!
It has no labels, and may have been hand made on a bought base: although the tulle has been regularly gathered and stitched into place, it is possible to see the base if you look critically at the crown, where the layers overlap less. Clearly, however, it has not suffered over the years and is in mint condition!
It's a really flattering shape; the rim has been pulled in slightly at the back (of course, you could always wear the shaped bit to the front if you prefered) to make it slightly narrower here. Both the inner crown and brim are trimmed with petersham ribbon. It will fit an average-sized head (i.e., mine): the internal crown measures 22 inches (58 cms), approximate maximum height of crown is 4 inches (10 cms), circumference at widest point, 46 inches (117 cms). All measurements given in good faith for guidance only.
