This is a wonderful lavender or violet coloured straw half-hat that was sold at Simpson’s, which was probably Canada’s second largest department store chain, after Eaton’s. It has a brim that is “pulled back” at the front. The hat is decorated overall with what look like cleft violets, very pretty, along with a rosebud and a larger pink flower. The label reads “Simpson’s 22” - the style of the Simpson’s logo was used prior to 1957, and I guess that the 22 is the size. This hat should be worn on the back of the head and should fit a medium to a smaller large size. It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear. Pretty Easter time colour - cute hat!
