Once years (many, many years) ago we were visiting my folks at their cottage. They offered to take care of the kids so my husband and I could go out for dinner. Of course we ended up going to an antique shop. This hat is the only thing I bought and it is my first vintage hat. It has always been at the center of my collection display.
This Victorian hat is brown velvet with a light brown satin trim. The puff of a feather off to the side gives it just a touch of added elegance. The name of this hat is a Pamela (a hat with a curved brim that slopes down in front and back). Just imagine how proud some woman was to own this hat 100 years ago!
