Vintage Motsch for Hermes Paris Hat Silk Crown Straw Brim M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is an exceptional quality ladies Motsch for Hermes hat made with a printed silk crown with straw brim.  The hat was made by Motsch for Hermes - Motsch is a legendary Paris hat maker in business since 1887 and a preferred supplier to Hermes Paris.  The silk is printed with a jockey racing theme - jockey attire, a jockey astride a horse, people in the stands etc.  The crown on this Motsch for Hermes hat has four large buttons affixed around its sides and the hat is lined in striped silk.  The size tag reads 57, which should be equivalent to a US size 7 1/8, however, my hat sizing tool reads US size 7.  I guess that the tightness of fit depends on whether you would want to wear this hat higher on the head or pulled down.  It was a little tight for my mannequin, so I couldn’t pull it down, but I did pose the brim turned up and also down.  This Motsch for Hermes hat is in very clean condition and looks like it saw little use and was well cared for - there are a couple of protruding short threads in one area of the straw brim edge, but these just need to be snipped.  The straw is in a wheat toned colour.  This is a rather unique model as I couldn’t find a similar one anywhere - Motsch for Hermes produces the highest quality hats!
