Exotic Bird Feather Hat

This piece bears the classic profile of a 1930s big brim hat. The wool body of the hat is in very good shape, as is the velvet fabric weaving in and out of the open crown. The stitching on the crown indicates it is handmade (like so much millinery was during this time period). The large coque feathers end with red, blue, yellow, and smaller black feathers designed to resemble an exotic bird. The embroidered label reads Daphne Model Paris New York.
