    I agree with Manikin, 1920's to early 1940's. Great hat!

    Sweet lavender hat, going with the crowd on date 1920's era. What a great piece of history, the decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and began to wear more comfortable clothes. I can see it now looking at your hat; the young, rebellious, middle-class women, hated by older generations because they exposed their legs and arms. OMG the start of the American womens rights movement. ALL FROM YOUR HAT!

    Don't like to go against the crowd, but not enough info to date your hat. Suggest you add 2 more photos: 1 of inside of hat and 1 with it sitting on something that shows it at straight-on angle so that the size of the hat can be seen. But, pushed, I'd say it looks more midcentury to me.
    There is, however, interesting information on Merrimac Hat Company in Amsbury, MA. The "peachbloom velour" was one of their popular styles and during the 1940s they were the largest producers of trimmed hats and hat bodies (untrimmed hats) in the country. The company was operational for about 115 years and closed in 1971.
    Yes, I'm a hat geek. DD@Phila
