This smart little hat is made of black wool felt with rhinestones on an art deco embellishment made of pleated grosgrain ribbon. There is no size indicated as it is meant to sit frontward on the head providing an ideal spot to attach the hat securely at the crown with a hatpin. It is marked inside “Merrimac Hat Corp. ~ Made in U.S.A. ~ 100% Wool.” It measures approximately 7 inches around the inside diameter, and has a grosgrain interior band that shows minor signs of wear with a little tinge of stain, otherwise this darling hat is in great vintage condition!

A great little hat from a bygone era of American culture when hats were as common as people were.

During the 1940’s, the Merrimac Hat Corp. of Amesbury, Massachusetts was the largest manufacturer of broad-brimmed beaver hats and fedoras, to Girl Scouts caps and Mouseketeers beanies, to a number of stylish rolled-brimmed hats endorsed by a very young Elizabeth Taylor.
