#3011 - c. 1939 Tall Straw Hat with Copper Brown Bow and Veil. Love this look. Wonder how I can date this to 1939? Well, I'll tell you! From April 1, 1939 Vogue Magazine ad from Lord and Taylor. It can be seen on page 327 of Sue Langley's great Hats & Bonnets Book. To be worn slightly cocked on the head, dripping into the eyes. Excellent condition. Great fun. A bit of a throw back to the 1880's with the tall hats of that era.

SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
