Labels: none remain
Materials: synthetic horsehair braid, rayon velvet
Condition: we've dyed this hat, which was a sad beige with even sadder beige ribbon, so it would continue to match the1930s lace dress and bolero jacket set. the hat itself is not absolutely perfect, as there are some minor breaks in the braid here and there. we've made repairs to breaks between the rows of braid with invisible thread (it's not at all difficult, FYI, in case future repairs are needed).
Measurements: Please see photo combo with ruler.
Diameter ~16"/40.5cm diameter, crown height ~2.5"/6cm crown height, brim width ~4"/10cm
Cracked Betty the Head Mannequin has a particularly small head, but this is really a one-size-fits all hat, as you can set it atop your own head at whatever jaunty angle you please. You might opt to pin it in place (here's your excuse to buy that antique hat pin. Yes, I'm an enabler).
