Purple velvet Victorian tricorn with asymmetrical brim - wider on the left than the right. Flat top. Built on a buckram frame with a wired brim and top of the flat crown. Adorned with thick curled black ostrich plumes - one around the brim and the other spilling off the left side and down the back. Lined with delicate black silk and stamped with the makers mark in gold - Lewis & Anderson Millinery Salon, Greensboro. This would be North Carolina (lucky there are not too many Greensboro's in the USA!). The velvet is a little worn and the lining is delicate, but other than that the hat is in excellent condition and is still glorious. The huge ostrich plumes are also in excellent condition, having stood the test of time really well. This hat has incredible presence and harkens to a time when ladies hats were bold but still gracious. I have over 250 hats and this is my favourite!
