Hi. I follow your group and have an object I hope you might help me identify. I purchased this hat several years ago at an estate sale as I was amazed at the quality of the weaving and craftmanship. Have searched a number of times and still unable to identify it's origin. My daughter recently suggested it might be African. It has a wondeful patina, so I think it may have a few years on it. Your help is truly appreciated. Two photos attached. Thank you, Sharon Smith travelsbysmith@...
