Welsh-made or repaired Welsh hat

can4911

This hat has a single piece of felt on the top of the brim, and three pieces (of two different colours) on the underside with one piece missing. It is likely that this is a repair, but it might have been made like this by a Welsh hat maker who generally covered the upper and under sides of the brim with 2 separate pieces of silk plush. Most surviving hats have whole brim covered in a singly piece of plush.
