Vintage Early 1950s Wide Brim Black Horse Hair Hat

Such a chic summer hat, very 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'!  Black horse hair with woven, banded patterns.  The front brim is wider than the back.  The brim also has a wire at the edge to allow for reshaping.  The top is shallow and sits atop the head.  A black velvet band and bow accent.
