3.5 Wizard's hat

I have tried and tried to find this but i cant. I remember an item from a book that was essentially a wizard's hat but cannot find it. Please list all the hats resembling a wizard hat from the books you can think of. And maybe ill find it. My google fu fails me.

Were you thinking of the hat of wizardry? It's from Xanathar's Guide to Everything. It can be used as a focus for wizard spells, and once per long rest you can make a DC 10 Arcana check to try to cast a wizard cantrip you don't know.

You might be thinking of the Hat of Many Spells. A.K.A. Presto the Magician's hat. It was given stats for 3.5 edition in the the Dungeons & Dragons Animated Series DVD box set, which was released in the late 200X~s
 
I dont think thats it.

I think i found it in a more mainline source. Like something faerun related maybe. I dont remember for sure. Sorry im not more helpful.

Man, I kind of like these challenges you keep throwing in, but this time there is too little to go with. Was there an image with the hat or was it just a description? Do you remember wether it was magical or mundane item? Are you certain it was 3.x edition and not even earlier? Do you remember any properties it might have had?

Yeah, I'm with the others - we need more data. Anything at all you can remember would help. Even limiting the search to official material, there was an ocean of sourcebooks published during the 3E era, each one stuffed with character options including magic items. And if you came across this in 2012, we can't even narrow it down by date--we have the entire span of 3E and 3.5E to cover. It's far too much to trawl through it with nothing to go on but "wizard's hat."

What's got you digging for this?
 
It would help if you listed anything else at all.

Like what the hat does. Or even the color.
Ordinarily i would. I simply dont remember that much about this particular item though. I also think i remember that its shaped and colored like a stereotypical wizard hat (blue or blueish purple? Maybe stars and such. Not sure about that. Maybe though?). There may or may not be a black variant (not sure about that).

I wish i remember what the use was. Unfortunately i dont. Sorry i dont have more info.

It was 3 or 3.5 and actually yes it was a magical item (i should have stated this detail before. Sorry). Dont know if it was listed among a magic item section or not but it was a magic item listed in either an item section or a magic item section. One or the other.

I have a strong suspicion that it may have been in something faerun related. I wish i hadnt been such a disorganized baffoon years ago but i was. Im better about this now, but i wish I'd catalogued things before. Now i am though so that i dont repeat history. Trying to find things again has occasionally gotten me stuck like this due to it. Im sorry. I appreciate all the help ive recieved though. Thanks.

I pored through the FR books, and closest I’ve come across, is Helm of Supreme Wizardry in Dragons of Faerun. Pg 131. It does not have any image though, and the description makes it clearly a helmet...
