20.5” circumference x 6” diameter x 2.5” high

Silk hand-embroidery (tiny cross-stitches called“iroki”)

Black velvet trim

Plain red cotton lining

Good used condition – very slight color run

 

This girl’s hat is embroidered with a type of fine cross-stitch called “iroki”. It resembles petit point in appearance and covers the entire surface of the hat.

The hat has been worn and as such no longer retains the sharp squared-look. However it sits nicely on the head.
