1910 Straw hat with Ruffled Lace

The Braid straw hat has a overly large crown, and inside there is a smaller head fitting, with a silk draw string lining to  enable the hat to fit. The lining had pin home marks in it showing that it must have also been secured with hat pins. The lining has a lovely gold crest printed in the tip of the crown.
