Cute little Bonnet
From the seller:
A stylish 1920’s beige straw hat that has been de-accessioned from the Rochester Historical Society Museum collection. The label reads Mrs. E. R. Rice, New York. The hat is trimmed with pink silk moire rosettes, pink straw flowers and green leaves. The front brim is trimmed with pink straw. The hat is in good condition. The ribbon across the back neck area has some splitting and part of the silk lining inside the hat is missing. Head Opening 24.
I found the above vintage ad in the Columbia Alumni News circa 1917. For her to take a whole page ad like that with pictures then? She must have been doing quite well for herself.
