A dashing vintage spring hat in midnight blue, with a band of white millinery silk flowers and little faux seed pearls, from the famous Marshall Field & Co. department store in Chicago, and probably from the 1950s or '60s. A dark blue ribbon ties a bow in the back. The rolled brim and flat crown are beautifully shaped. Inside, two blue velvet wired loops hold the hat securely as it perches high on your head.

Wonderful for display on a wall or on a stand, but also would be great to wear for a summer wedding, Easter bonnet or spring garden party hat. This hat is quite small, and seems designed to sit on the back of the head or very high, perhaps perched on an upswept hairdo.

The hat is a very dark blue-black, a bit darker than it appears in these photos. It is in great condition, with no signs of wear except perhaps a few folded flowers. It's coiled in the style of a straw hat, but the material looks synthetic.

The label says "245 X"

A wonderful find for your collection!
