30s Vintage Women's Fedora Hat Slouch Film Noir Dark Blue Stitched Low Crown VFG

A low crown women's fedora style hat that dates to the 1930s. The crown is shaped by two asymmetrical "slashes" that are stitched together in a lighter neutral shade of thread. The longer slash is further shaped with inside stitching to create a deeper pinch. The outer hatband is grosgrain ribbon with a folded treatment on the wearer's right.

CONDITION: There are faint old makeup stains on the front half of the inner ribbon band - see closeup. There is subtle fading to the outer band, with a bit of fray at the slanted edges - see closeup. The way the ribbon is folded there suggests to me that the hat may have had a small feather trim in that spot, which a new owner may want to add back.
