This is a black fur felt hat dating to the 1940s, reminiscent of the style of hat worn by Ingrid Bergman. It has an angular sloped crown that is deeper at the back than the front and an irregular brim. The front of the crown is decorated with a buckled leather belt, formed to resemble leaves. The label reads “Lady Biltmore Genuine Fur Felt Made in Canada”. Biltmore was Canada’s premiere hat maker, producing quality similar to that of Stetson. The size label reads “23”, but this would comfortably fit a medium size, a modern day 7 1/8. It is in very good condition with no noted wear, tear or staining - slight soiling to the sweatband and labels, but nothing pronounced. Wonderful 40s era hat - very nice quality!
