Back To Front Straw Hat With Large Bow By Phillip Rhodes
Straw hat by top Australian milliner Phillip Rhodes.
Natural straw hat has a high, round crown and a downward facing brim bound with beige grosgrain ribbon. There's a wide grosgrain ribbon around the crown and it is trimmed with a large organza bow trimmed with the same ribbon. Headband is also grosgrain. It appears that the bow is meant to be worn at the front as the label is placed opposite the bow and the join in the ribbon which would normally be at the back is also opposite the bow. But please yourself. Made by Phillip Rhodes - Melbourne.
Circumference at the inner head band 55 cm (21 5/8")
Crown height 12.5 cm (5")
Brim width 7.5 cm (3")
Very good. There are two small areas of wear on the edge of the brim, the largest is shown.
