Vintage Kokin New York Bucket Hat Brown Curly Wool w Black Velvet Ladies Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful Kokin New York design hat that has a downturned rim and is made in a “bucket” shape. The exterior is finished in a brown curly textured wool, meant to replicate the look of astrakhan or broadtail. The top of the crown, the base of the crown and the edge of the brim are all finished in black velvet. The underside of the brim is black wool. The opening measures 21 5/8” around the sweatband, so this should fit a small to medium sized head - being a bucket style, it shouldn’t sit too low, so it should be more of a medium size. The hat measures 11 3/4” by 12 1/2” across the brim. The crown has a height of 3 3/4”. It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or staining.
