Vintage Late 1930s Red Straw Italian Beach Hat

An truly amazing and rare 1930s hat!  Red woven straw.  High conical style with an inverted top.  A red and white polka dot scarf laces through the front and can tie either under the chin or behind the head (under the hair).  

NOTE:  Red is a color that computer monitors show differently.  The hat is a deep red and perhaps not as bright red as your computer shows.
