C.1950 Christine Original Straw Garden Party Wide Brimmed Hat


Garden party anyone? This C.1950 wide brimmed natural straw hat by Christine Original is edged in navy blue grosgrain ribbon and decorated with a bouquet of colorful silk flowers including shades of poppy red and daisy white mixed with pale blue, yellow and green leaves. Tapering from a wide brim at the front to narrow at the back, it is designed to provide shade without sacrificing style. Pair it with everything from a summer dress to jeans and t-shirts. Originally retailed at J.P. Allen, a famous and now defunct old school department store in Atlanta, Georgia. Good vintage condition with some age related spots shown in photographs 9 and 10 that are subtle enough to appear as a natural variation in the straw. There are hidden darker spots under the brim which can be seen on the right hand side of photograph 11. MEASUREMENTS The inner grosgrain ribbon rim measures 21.25" circumference. The front brim is 5" wide tapering to 2.5" at the back. The crown has a 4.5" rise with 6" to the center.
