Title Black Pillbox Hat with White Brim

Description Black velvet pillbox hat with white textured brim. The front of the brim has an embroidered design with a black velvet strip underneath. There is also a small black velvet bow on the back of the hat's brim. There is a small knot of black veil which suggests that the hat may have had a front face veil that is gone now.

Summary Good Condition

Assessor Nicole Burdick

Notes Hat is in good condition, fabric is clean and has no tears. White brim is slightly yellowed and a small silver pin on the left side keeps embroidered fabric attached. On the right side of the hat there are some reminents of what used to be a black face veil that is now missing.
