a little vintage hat
sweetly simple
made of ivory straw
covered in netting
with gathered fabric around the brim

This darling vintage hat dates from the 1930s-early 50s. In the 30s, it was popular to wear these hats tilted forward at an angle (you can see some good examples here: http://www.fashion-era.com/hats-hair/hats_hair_8b_marie_claire_1930s.htm).
In the mid 40s - early 50s, it was most fashionable to wear it at the back of the crown like a pillbox hat ~

marked a size 22 on the inside, measures 21.5" around the inside band, 12.75" across from front to back, 12" from side to side. the brim is 1.5" wide in the front and narrows to 3/4" in the back. The crown stands approx. 3.5" high ~

excellent condition except for some tears in the netting around the brim -- this could easily be fixed either by replacing it or simply removing it (which you could do and still keep the netting on the crown). the only other thing to point out is it appears there was once a flower or pin attached to the fabric band, but it is long since gone ~
