This 20s-style hat is most likely from the 1940s. It's wool felt in a milk chocolate shade of brown, completely covered with swirls and rows of entwined sequins and braid. Scalloped-edge "brim" is wider at front than at back. Almost certainly won't cover your eyes -- our mannequin has a very small head.

--> Cracked Betty has a very small head (just over 20"/50.75cm), so is not the ideal model. Our alternate mannequin, Cracked Jane, has a giant head and "hair" that prevents the hat from sitting properly. I have a standard-size head but very thick hair (no, really... mine is thicker). The hat fits me and reaches to where it should (doesn't cover my eyes), but is a bit snug. If you have an average-to-small head and "regular" hair, it should fit fine. <--
