Hat

Description:

Toque-style hat of navy blue felt. The hemispherical crown is of navy blue felt with a folded-up back section from which radiates three large arrow-head shapes (forming a stylized fleur-de-lys seen from above). The shapes are formed of the same material as the hat, but with the reverse side showing, creating different shade/texture. At back of hat are two short trailing ribbons. The hat is unlined, with inner dark blue grosgrain ribbon hatband around inside base of crown. A small stitch mark on the hatband indicates the front of the hat.

Designer's label sewn to inner hatband: "Hattie Carnegie".
Visible inside the crown is part of a stamped mark from the felt supplier.

Accompanied by two short hatpins, the heads covered in the same felt as the hat.
