Red, 100% wool felt, wide brim, cartwheel hat designed by Don Anderson, made by Bollman in the USA. Brilliant feather band surrounds the hat with gorgeous exotic feathers in red & black. Wire edge on the brim. The hat has a vintage Wool Products Label of 5923. “WPL numbers were issued from 1941 through 1959 under the Wool Products Labeling Act. WPL numbers begin at 00101 and end at 13669. All numbers issued subsequently are RN numbers,” from eBay guide. This helps in dating this hat to approximately 1950, halfway between the 18 years WPL”s were issued. The hat is in amazing condition given its age. I’ve not notice any discoloration or moth bites. It is clean & beautiful & was obviously well cared for & ready to be treasured again. Stunning, timeless beauty. Measures 22’’ circumference.
