The fabric has lines that cross to form a grid-like pattern. The lines are thicker in the middle, then thin out. They are thick where the intersecting line is thin. There is an orange-ish stain on the front. The inside of the hat has a lacelike material, with a tan colored headband. There is a tag in the hat that reads " Marshall Field and Company" and says that the hat is a size 50. Hat is located inside hatbox (1999.9.10).
Marshall Field and Company, also known as Marshall Fields, was an upscale department store in Chicago. They originally had a building on State Street in the Loop before they were bought out by Macy's. Marshall Field was famous for his slogan "Give the lady what she wants."
