#0184 - c. 1940's Black Velvet Riding Hat or Doll Hat! Unlikely this hat was worn for riding in the 1940's, but without doubt it was certainly meant to evoke the Victorian riding hat for a very stylish look! From afar, the velvet is designed to look like the black beaver top hats and riding hats. Trimmed in black grosgrain ribbon around crown and edge of brim. The dotted veil can be worn just over the eyes, or wear up on the hat if you prefer, however there are some holes in the veil, so you might want to replace for perfection. Measures 9" x 9.5" oval x 3.5" high. Has the thin elastic to hold on head (under hair at back).
