Summary Good Condition

Assessor Nicole Burdick

Notes Fabric is fairly clean and in good condition. There is some slight wearing in the fabric where small divots have been created. In the petal shaped fabric the center folds on two of the pieces have been seperated down the middle. On the front of the hat it appears that one of the plastic flowers is missing.
