Stunning vintage antique Black Top Hat

Maker Name DOBBS

Fifth Avenue NY

Tag found in the hat tucked into the sleeve of the inside brim that was a nice find

Size 7 1/4 as per the label here is more information and measurements

Measurement height from brim to top of hat approximately 6 inches

Width of whole hat brim to outside brim 10 inches

Inside opening of hat 8 inches x 6 1/4 inches width

Material is very soft like brushed silk as was used back then.

Hat is probably from the early 1900s period since they made these back then for men going to the opera or other formal occasion

Original Dobbs stamp on the inside of the hat

The hat inside brim appears to be made from some kind of hide or leather material and the stitching is exquisite, obviously the hat was made with care and is still in nice condition today. The top hat has kept it's wonderful shape and condition over the years.

There is evidence of the hat being worn to be expected off course, I see one tiny area where it may not have complete coverage but with age that's normal but other than that it looks good, please see photos, the label on the inside is in nice shape and with the crest in tact on the inside, the lining is a nice ivory creamy beige color.

These hats are quite rare and to find one in this condition even rarer for the time period.

Great to add to your collection, or for re-enactment, Movie, or other special occasion including steampunk convention.

*In the middle of the century, top hats came into prominence. One of the hats most famous customers was Abraham Lincoln, who favored stovepipes, as the tallest top hats were often called, for formal occasions. Meanwhile, magicians reveled in what they could hide (or appear to hide) inside their top hats (white rabbits), while authors such as Lewis Carroll created top-hat-wearing characters like the Mad Hatter. For men of this era, the top hat was the unquestionable symbol of power and authority. Thus, J. M. Flagg’s famous World War I recruiting poster featured a version of Uncle Sam wearing a top hat*
