Khaki-coloured hat with wide brim (70 mm) that reaches all the way around and folds over itself at the back. The crown of the hat is only slightly higher and has a seam running down the centre. The brim (which is decorated with diagonal stitching) forms a small fall at the back where it overlaps. The lining is silk (?) and slightly darker in colour. Just inside the front is a white label with "Antoinette Louise Millinery by Jan Beech" written in green.
