Take a peek at another vintage CDV I have of ladies in wonderful hats. This one is a older lady all dressed up in her best and with a hat. Fantastic hat in at least two colors ( of course this is black and white so no idea what color it was) . Has a piece that stands up, and some fluff at back of head. If you look closely you can see she is wearing eyeglasses. They have a chain so she can hang them around her neck.
Bonus is that this is identified . Lady name is Maria Peet and is written Christmas 1899 and that is from New York. Town looks like Cerenovia or something like that.
