Summary Excellent

Assessor Christina Beebe

Notes This Madame Pauline hat is in excellent condtion. The coloring is excellent; it still has a very strong/rigid shape to it. The fur and the felt are excellent. Looks like it was barely worn. There is really nothing wrong with this hat except a tiny little discoloured spec at the back of the hat near the seem (on the top felt portion of the hat).
