A charming vintage 1940s tilt hat made of glossy colored straw. I can't resist a piece with rainbow colors! Made to be worn tipped steeply forward, this hat absolutely oozes 40s charm. The only added adornmentthe black grograin band and bow - and it doesn't need more. I've owned this only a short while, and I'm tempted to keep it, but I know there's probably someone who will love it even more than I.
Originally in brighter shades, the top of the crown has faded with time, and to a lesser extend, the brim. The original colored, seen around the sides of the crown are gold, lime, red, black, and navy. The fade has made the colors into gold, coral red, purple and celadon green.

This hat presents beautifully and is ready to wear. As noted there's fade the top of the crown and some of the brim, but the pattern remains compelling! If this beauty doesn't sell quickly, she'll be headed back into my collection. I find no other issues to note!
