This hat is amazing--as much fiber sculpture as it is headware! It's made from strips of felt in a gorgeous color of red, overlapped and sewn to a type of netting, then stitched into a circle with an opening in the top and some folds to give it a Frank Gehry effect. Topping it off: a small red, gray, and black grosgrain bow in the back. A vertical strip of felt runs down the back, which keeps the strips tight together in the back, while the front can flare out if you want to wear it further back on your head.

The hat has a label from Rike's, Dayton, Ohio, a grand department store that opened in 1853. I don't know the age of the hat, but I would guess 1940s or 1950s.

The hat is in very good condition, with no problems with the stitching or felt that I could see. Inside it's lined with chiffon and has a red grosgrain ribbon and strip of black lace. There's also a small appliqued diamond at the inside front of the hat.

Size: 21 inches (53.3 cm)
