Vintage Hat Friday

Hello Hat Lovers,

This hat is so interesting. When I first saw it from a distance, I thought the pom-poms were made of fur. Instead, they’re made of straw. The base of this hat is a very fine black straw, blocked into a sassy shape. The “under-brim” is an orange crepe fabric. The label says Veola Modes, NY. It was sold at Wm. Taylor Son & Co, London, Cleveland, Paris. Since the original owner lived in Cleveland, I’m guessing she bought it there.What era do you think it’s from hat specialists? I’m guessing 1950s.

Such a fun and elegant hat. (From my collection.)
