I had a response to my search for the identity of this lovely not-a-hat via email, and not from my husband's family but from a dear friend who lives in upstate New York but has family in India. Apparently it is a dish carrier, meant for toting casseroles, cakes, or other round things to potlucks and picnics. Not too far from any of our guesses!
Now I just need an occasion to use it. . . .

I agree! Contact me to find out how to claim your prize.
