Baby Hat from China
From a Miao group in southwest China, this small hat is probably for a boy due to the backflap/tail. It has a strong graphic pattern of spirals done in applique with outlines of silk-wrapped horsehair. A special complex knot at the center tops it off. Condition is used, with wear to the edges and on the top, plus some repairs.
Size: 5.5″dia. x 4.25″h.
