Vintage Early 1940s Dramatic Cartwheel Hat

This early 1940s hat definitely has an Old Hollywood drama!  Black wool felt with a sheer horsehair ruffle trim.  The small crown tilts forward in the iconic style of the early 40s.  The extra wide brim stays straight (it isn't floppy).   This is definitely a show-shopper!
