Interesting 1920s era straw boater hat, an important men's fashion accent during the early 20th century. Hat was made in Japan, beautifully made with thick, rigid straw. Lining is gold stamped with a crowned winged symbol that has incorporated text that reads “Best Quality New Style”. Sweatband is stamped with “Fine Straw Master Mode Shower Proof”. Paper tag reads size 7 1/4 and Made in Japan. Interior is finished in netting around the crown, and exterior crown has a silk ribbon affixed to it.
- straw is in very good condition
- ribbon around the crown has water staining that has left brown marking around the upper edge of the ribbon - you can either cut the ribbon down or perhaps fold it inside to hide the stains, but there might be a color difference due to age patina. may be best to simply replace ribbon.
- some staining to the gold stamping on the interior
- two small brown marks on the under brim and a bit of staining to the netting and interior side, quite minor.
