The cutest “doll hat” from the early 40s, this red and ivory polka dot fabric 1940s tilt hat has two large, decorative hatpins, covered in ivory faux leather, that echo the shape of the polka dots--plus dainty black veiling. The hat has a wide grosgrain strap that hugs the back of the head, to keep it at the proper, forward tilt; the tiny crown sits at the top/front of head when worn. This darling 1940s hat is in good, wearable condition, with some water spotting to the dotted rayon crepe fabric of the crown, and some discoloration to the underside of the brim/inner band from previous wear (see close-up photos).
