This hat is machine stitched, except for hand embroidery and the lining being tacked in by hand. It's evidently been worn a lot but is in good condition overall. A little bit of the embroidery is loose; some of the silver thread is darkened, I presume where it was handled. The hat is a little wrinkled and crumpled, but with no structural flaws. The fabric is in very good condition, except that the inside is stained around the brim from being worn.
This hat is very comfortable on the head, and would be just lovely on display.
Size: The hat measures 20 1/2 inches (52 cm) around the inside edge (this can sit back a little on a larger head). It is 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) tall.
