Title Smoking Cap

Description Orange embellished smoking cap. Marshall Fields & Company Hat Bars Made in India There is a label underneath the red flap on the inside of the hat that reads: "Union Made AL 265061In U.S.A." So it looks like the outer fabric may have been made in India, but the hat looks like it may have been assembled in the U.S.A. Embellished throughout with gold frill and and small red, white, and blue beads.

Summary Good

Assessor Christina Beebe

Notes This hat is in good condition. There is overall fading/discoloration of the orange fabric. the embelishment is in good shape. There is only one spot where the frill has begun to unravel and the gold thread is sticking out with a crimped look. The hat has not been supported well, so while it can still stand up on it's edge, it is beginning to lose its shape and the top is starting to cave in a bit. The inside of the hat is in very good condition and has a perfectly legible label attached. The "made in India" sticker is also still attached. The fabric on the inside is bright with little to no sun damage and in great condition.
