Nice vintage hat that belonged to Mrs. F - owner of the old Valley View Department Store in Brookfield, Ohio.
She sold several of her store's NOS vintage items to me several years back, but this was one that she personally owned and bought from Montgomery Ward, but just had so many that she never wore this. It still has the original tags.
It is about 9 x 10 inches from brim to brim across the hat.
This is a taupe colored vintage hat with black velvet trim and bows.
It has flocked, wired flowers and fabric leaves in a line across the back.
The inside base is just the reverse of the fabric making up the hat with a taupe grosgrain ribbon covering the seam along the head band.
This pretty vintage hat also has a taupe veil.
Inside is about 6 3/4 x 7 1/4
* I do not clean the items - I sell them in the same condition as I find them as I am not an expert.
As hats are delicate, they need to be sent in a box and packed carefully which means it adds to the cost of getting it to you, but this cannot be helped.
*If you are local, it is at my Hubbard Ohio Gift Shop with free local pick up.
