While in Paris last year I visited a friend who had this great antique french military hat sitting on a bureau in his living room. Being an enthusiastic hat collector myself, I was compelled to photograph it for later transposition into paint. I was also amused to think how this chapeau would not last 10 minutes on a table in my house as the bright red plume would prove to be too much of a temptation to my rambunctious resident felines.
