This is a sculptured wool Breton style hat in fantastic and clean condition. A Breton style hat is a woman's hat with a round sculpted crown a deep brim that is turned upward all the way around so the face is exposed. Meant to sit on top of the head with the brim tilted to the back of the head. You will see this style hat frequently if you look at 60's photos of Jackie Kennedy, Princess Margaret or Suzy Parker to name a few.
This one is a lovely dark teal green felted wool with a lovely and elaborated black sequined and beaded embellishment on it's front brim which is designed to tremble when you move your head. There is also a sequined head band surrounding the outside crown. It is in fantastic vintage condition. An Inside label is marked ""Specially Tailored by Dorothy Murray".
My head measures 22' and this hat fits snugly. It measures 21" around the inside with a tape measurer.
