    Hi, everybody! Can anyone tell me when this hat was en vogue, and maybe the name of it, or what style it is? I need some keywords to write a description on Etsy. And is 22 the size, as in 22”? IMG_2050.jpg IMG_2052.jpg IMG_2049.jpg Many thanks!

    also, please excuse the lint & such, the hat box it was in is falling apart.

    Looks like a little beret. How is it worn? And how many "buttons" are there? Is there something missing from their centers? Does it have a label? Is the hat box original? Can you post a photograph? Reminds me of the Philip Treacy worn by Princess Beatrice. His was called 'Downtown Bow Hat.'

    Wow, that’s quite a hat!
    I think the missing piece is another button - it’s pinned to the inside. The buttons appear to be intact. I can post more photos once I get back home. I had this pic on the original post, I guess it didn’t upload… IMG_2053.jpg

    What does that say? "New York Creation?" Wasn't an expensive item then. It's going to be 1930-1950s somewhere. Is it worn like this 1940s one?

    Awesome, thanks for finding that. It didn’t occur to me to google the company name - it’s been one of those days!

    Only the one label?

    Yes, and I believe it’s pinned onto the hat, if I remember correctly. Will have to check that out in a lil bit.

    Do hats typically have more than one label?

    It appears that the "New York Creation" label may have been used along with the manufacturer's label. And identifying the manufacturer may effect value.

    Your INITIAL picture made me think of a "pill box" style hat, but the following 2 pics, kind of took that thought away!!

    Pill box hat for comparison.

    I see! No, only that one label. Also, I took a closer look at the buttons, and they’re either little mirrors (which doesn’t seem right) or they are missing something, like you said.

    I flipped the label over and found this… on the first one, there’s an N and a B that I didn’t see before. The second one has “186700” on the side

    It's a union label. The number should identify the manufacturer. Can you post it fully? (Can't read all in photograph.) Lack of manufacturer's and damaged "buttons" will impact resale value.
