Very glam: all I can think of right now is Meryl Streep in Out of Africa, wearing that Danish hat shaped like this one. Very Upper East Nile, Cleopatra, a torque hat.

Originally, this hat was dark navy, and is now a charcoal navy. The intricacy is hard to explain, made of straw, with so much fine weaving . . .. EXCELLENT condition, as far as the weaving; the only flaw is the fading color.

I believe this hat was manufactured in the 1940s, because it is from one estate sale with most of my other hats, but I could be mistaken.

The Halloween pumpkins are made from dried gourds. Dried gourds will last for many years, just keep them dry during storage. My jack o lanterns are fine to leave outside for the Halloween season. Dried gourds are very light weight, so weigh them down with fresh mini gourds and pumpkins or tie them down with white LED Christmas lights.
No. If it looks clean, I might not wash it, due to the cost of dry-cleaning. All vintage items have previous lives and might carry scents with them. I cannot smell very well, but do make an effort to only have good smelling items.
Best to use LED lights because of the low heat. I use real tea candles and watch the jack o lanterns closely while the candles are lit. I have not had a fire, but fires can easily happen . . . . So no, you are not supposed to use a real flame.
The gourds should last for several years. Freezing will not do anything to the gourd, but will wear the paint off sooner. The paint will still last for at least a few years. Compare the longevity of the paint on a gourd to the longevity of paint on a painted sign.
