Thank you Connie. I had already made up my mind that this was the proper translation and that "tambourin" applied only to a woman's hat. Thank you also Yolanda for confirming this. There was precious little on the Net for this term, so Termium was a very useful resource. I appreciate your help.

tambourin


Explanation:
Je viens de trouvé dans le Dictionnaire thématique visuelle ceci :

tambourin = pillbox hat, pourtant on montre l'image d'une femme. Enfin, cela pourrait aussi s'appliquer à un homme, j'imagine.

C'est donc tambourin.
