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

$ 80.00 Sale Save

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.

SIZE: Labeled size 22

Measurements Inches Centimeters
Inner band circumference 21" 53.25
Brim circumference: Front / Back
2.75" / 2.2" 7 / 5.25
Height of crown with hat sitting on flat surface 3.5" 9

MATERIALS/COLORS: Dark blue felt, probably wool, and thinner/lighter than other hats I have handled from this era.

TAGS: No maker's tag

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.
