1910s / 1920s straw hat

This one is ancient and unusual. It’s not a panama, but it’s similar. I’m not sure the country of origin of the straw. Marked Genuine Madagascar, but knowing the old straw names, that could mean anything. Stitched crown with taped seams. White sweatband with nouveau markings. Sold by M.E. Blatt – Importer – Boardwalk Atlantic City, NJ.
