We also Feature Many Other Fascinating Collectibles from Throughout the World! We Treat You Like Royalty!!! This is a beautiful old Medieval style Court Fool's (Jester) Hat. It is hard to pinpoint a date, but we believe it could possibly be be from the late 19th Century to the earlier years of the 20th Century. That is our guess based on the wonderful old=word craftsmanship and style. As to origins, the hat could possibly be from France or Italy. Of course it could have also been made in America at a time when genuine skill in manufacture and in the crafts bwas still in abundance. Antique Jester Hats are rare. As a costume piece this is really fun as well as historic. We are not experts at antique theatrical costumes or textiles, but the material here appears to be Silk. That is only an opinion based on the lovely shiny quality and soft feel. There is also fine bullion trimming. There is a name written on the inside, but it was not originally there when the hat was made. We were told that the name was added on by an actor some years ago when this hat belonged to a theater company. Overall, the hat is in very good vintage condition with only normal expected minor wear. One of the bells is missing. No one would even notice this, but a bell can be easily added on. The Hat is wonderful. It evokes a world rich in amusement, music and art. We regularly feature extremely attractive and also very rare, top quality antiques including among the finest in Fraternal and Masonic Swords and Historic Relics as well as many other fascinating items.
