This is a lovely 1940s era hat made in Montreal by milliner Flore Deschamps.  It is made of natural straw with a wide brim.  The crown is decorated with three pulled silk pieces, one in two tones of blue, one black and one a mix of violet and light blue, wrapped with a black velvet ribbon. 

Label: The label reads “Haute Mode Flore Deschamps 276 Mont Royal E Montreal”.  According to historical sources, during the 1930s that address was attributed to “Salon Flora”, but in 1939, it started to be attributed to Miss Flore Deschamps.
