Constance Hopkins Artifact

Constance Hopkins wore this hat. Amazing!

Beaver Hat.

Made in England, 1615-1640.
Ownership attributed to Constance Hopkins.

Steeple-crowned hats, usually with a decorative band, were popular in western Europe for both men and women in the early 17th century. Beaver fur, imported from the colonies, was processed into felt to make hats.
