Description:
This horsehair wicker hat has a silk overlay and artificial flowers on the brim.  During this time period hats were small in size and varied in shape. Summer hats, such as this one, were still popular and were worn to protect a woman's complexion. The use of lightweight fabrics such as horsehair wicker and silk would have kept the wearer from getting too warm and the brim would have helped protect the woman from sun exposure.
