Vintage Early 1940s Wide Brim Black Straw Hat

A striking wide brim hat from the very early 1940s.  Black woven straw.  The wide brim turns down in the front (adding a bit of mystery) and is folded up in the back.  A wide ribbon band and bow accent the hat.  The crown has a classic late 1930s / early 1940s shape(that of a back leaning, cropped cone).   Simply gorgeous!
