Vintage Hat Friday

What a gorgeous piece this is! It’s a finely woven straw cartwheel hat topped with navy chiffon roses all around the edge of the brim. A pretty velvet ribbon surrounds the shallow crown and a custom-made-to-match hatpin secures it. The label reads Marche Exclusive. According to Hatatorium, the store was in New York and the designer was mentioned and/or advertised in fashion magazines in 1940s. The hat is nearly perfect; there’s a small area where the wire is poking through the grosgrain binding. It recently found a home with a happy vintage hat lover!
