This red straw wide brimmed cloche style hat by Eileen Carson most likely dates to the 1980s, although it could be a bit earlier. The deep, rounded crown has a subtle center crease. The wide brim is curved slightly downwards and is wired around its outer edge to help keep its shape. The crown is trimmed with a narrow, black grosgrain hatband, while the inside of the hat is finished with a wider, grosgrain ribbon inner band. The bright red straw used to construct the hat is quite fine and very lightweight. In very good to excellent condition, appearing hardly worn if at all, the hat’s only issue is a bit of an extra curve to the brim from its long storage (best seen in side view photos). This simply chic, vintage straw cloche hat will be a great addition to your hat collection!
