Summary Good/Fair Condition

Assessor Katherine Dickey

Notes Hat in good condition, lace trim a bit yellowed. Faux purple flowers are crushed and have lost shape. The box has retained its shape and form with some wear and small rips in the decoractive label. The proper front leather strap shows use and wear, but the leather looks like it can be conditioned. The proper back strap is covered in duct tape and shows a lot of wear
