Vintage Early 1940s Bordeaux Straw Tilt Hat

A stunning early 1940s tilt hat that really makes a statement!  Dark plum/burgundy straw.  Shallow top with an interior band hat sits atop the head.  Wide brim that undulates.  A gros grain ribbon circles the top and hangs as a bow from below the rim.  Two dark pink flowers accent the front.  We're completely enamored with this hat and it's rare color!
