One hat. Description: Straw hat with brown cellophane binding, brown velvet hat band, brown belting band inside; front of hat decorated with brown velvet box, "fruits and vegetables" (carrots, parsnips, and bananas are most obvious). Two sting tags hang from hat, one with date "1954", the other with original retail price $12.95". Condition: Excellent. 9-7/8" x 9-3/8" x 3". History: Hat made by Miss Helen. Remarks: Hat's shape is a modified "bonnet/sailor" combination. There is no label in the hat because labels were so expensive that Miss Helen didn't put one in until the hat sold. Kitchen"y" isn't it? 1954 is a fine date. (Joan Severa, 3/10/1994)
