Vintage Halloween Party Hat Witch Devil Black Cat

This pop-up hat was made in Germany during the 1920s. I've seen this style of hat several times, all with a different brim. The other brim is the same as shown on page 244 with a pleasing design of running cats. The thin tissue center is identical to the one in the book. I feel this checked brim is less visually appealing, so I wonder if it will affect what this ultimately brings. SGV is $160. 

05/23 Update: I feel the checked brim acted as a brake on the price this fetched as it brought $117.50.
