This vintage 1940s Designed by Sylvia nautical hat is so on trend for Spring 2012. Wearing Nautical fashions (along with solider styles) to show your patriotism were very popular during the WWII years. The hat features a United Hatters Cap and Millinery Workers International Union label beside the Designed by Sylvia tag.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.

Condition: Very Good.The navy color is strong and vibrant. There is only one small flaw: there is a small indentation on the front of the hat. (You know how straw hats can bend.) You can see the indentation in Photos 1, 3 and 5. Please convo if you would like additional photos. It doesn't take away from the overall fabulousness of this hat.



Length (from front to back, where label is): 8 1/2"

Width: 6 1/2"

Height of Hat (from crown to brim): 3 1/4"

Inside Circumference of Hat: 21"

Colors: Nautical Navy & a Windy White

Smoke free home.

Packaging: The hat will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method. Any postage overages will be refunded via PayPal. I love to combine shipping.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
