I sold this hat many years ago to a collector, who is now selling her collection, and so I have had it returned. In the intervening years I have not seen another for sale. Unusual to have the original ribbon.
The fine plaited straw with deep crown and huge upturned brim, a silk gauze ribbon in ivory stripes woven with small red and ivory pine shapes, bavorlet brim to back.
Three small pieces out of the brim. Ask for photos. Silk lining missing exposing small pieces of original silk. The bonnet could do with a little steam and re shaping.
