This one of a kind piece is a true collector’s item.
Using a thrift store straw hat as the base, the top features a Chinese Knot in beige suede, couched in copper wire, and supporting 3 wooden cogs that are meshed so that turning one, turns them all. A 4th wooden cog holds a clockspring in place that cascades around the side, culminating in more cogs, coins and buttons supported by a metal mesh bow at the back. This hat is lined in a peony print cotton.
Size 22, although it also makes a fabulous piece of wall art!
