Hat of the Week: Turquoise 'Doll' Top Hat

This fantastic 'doll' hat is from the late 1930s or early 1940s. I just love the color. Notice that the top of the crown is actually a hollow tube, resting on a close-fitting skullcap- I'd never seen that construction before. And the tasseled strap to hold the hat onto the back of the head is extra fancy.
