Short-crowned Brimless Hat

This style of hat was popular in the French and Italian court in the late 1500's. It resembles the Pill Box hats popular in the 1960's. But is worn far back on the head with the hair tucked inside. The black wool fabric which covers the wired buckram form first hat football holes cut into it. These were bound with gold silk, the same gold silk that makes the puffs that can be sean through the holes. The sides are covered with two rows of ribbon trim that match ribbon trim on the clients Sur Coat.
