Dramatic Velvet and Feather Trimmed Wide Brim Hat circa 1940s
1940s (late 30s?) tan felted wool hat with a little pirate attitude!
Edged in marigold yellow satin velvet and wrapped in tangerine satin, one side folds up with yellow velvet and felted wool arrows. Wired brim. Huge plume feather accent (not original, the original one broke off so I added a vintage millinery feather from my personal stash). By Adele Claire. Minor wear but not likely as perfect as it was decades ago. Best fit a 21 1/2.
