Small shaped hat. Main part of hat seems to have three layers: a lower level of lace-like off white/ivory/ecru and gold metallic thread, covered by a net of off white/ivory thread, with decorative elements composed of gold cord and white lace on top of that. The top two of these layers is adorned with small "buttons" apparently made of straw. (One of these has come off and is bagged separately.) The edges of the hat near the wearer's ears are covered with black velvet ribbon, the ends of which extend downward to form the ties that secure the hat; there is also a knot of this ribbon in the top front of the hat, from which two white feathers (now broken) extended. Hat lined with gathered white cotton.
