Body: For combined shipping, DO NOT PAY ME until you are finished offerding on my site for up to one month. This hat is comprised of one section ofa high quality taupe 100% doeskin wool felt and blocked into an almost oval derby shape. Although the crown top isrounded, the center has a 1/2" wide and 1/8" high hump running from front to back beginning approximately 3 1/2" from the front and backedgeof the hat. As you can see in the pictures, the brim is blocked in a step pattern around the hat gaining in height towards the back. The front center is actually excluded from the step. A taupe soft veiling with brown velvet like pom poms attached is hand stitched over the hat and hangsdown over the entire face. An elastic band is thread through the sweatband and secured with metal barbs. A millinery ringis stitched to the edge of the hat base under the sweatband. The label has been removed from the hat
Adornments: A huge pale cinnamon feather plume measuring approximately 8" wide and6" high with the quills wrapped and then covered with a matching taupe wool section is hand stitched at the back
Hatheight: 4 3/4" (6" when including the feather plume)
DISCLAIMER: Please measure your head and check the size above prior to offerding. I apologize; however, returns are not accepted because a hat does not fit. Also, I cannot take responsibility for any items lost or stolen in transit on international shipments.
Label (Labels): Missing, but it is stamped "100% Wool Doeskin Felt, Made in U.S.A., Bollman Hat Co."
Flaws: Good Condition. There is a 3/4" wide section with moth nibbles on the left back under the netting as well as a couple of other small nibbles here and there. There is one 1/8"moth hole on the underside front. A tad bit of glue residue where the missing label used to be. This hat has some light wear and soilage commensurate to its age and usage
If you have any questions, please contact me.
Please ENLARGE pictures to view exactly what you are offerding on.
All of my hats are cleaned, sterilized, blocked, individually packaged with a card and softener sheet, and shipped at lowest possible cost available with no handling fees attached. Your hat (hats) may become flattened somewhat in transport. To remedy this, just use steam from a kettle to restore shape. Please notify me prior to leaving response, so that I may resolve any issues you have with your purchase.
Although I mainly list hats, on occasion I will list other items. This does not mean that I am finished listing hats, so please check back regularly.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS CHANCE TO SERVE YOU.

To take advantage of combined shipping, do not pay me until you are finished offerding. I do ask that you notify me when planning to offer on more than one item so that I may prepare your combined shipping box. Please check my response.
