Cow Pat Hat

This medieval cap is often called a cow pat hat because of its very flat when not on the head.

Made of fabric, its a brim about 5cm wide with the crown made of the same material made oversized  so it falls onto the brim, its then lined and as in this case decorated with feathers

Worn predominantly in Tudor period by peasants through to nobility and by men and women alike.
