The strap is broken in the back (as seen in pictures) but the lid fits snug and can still be carried by the handle. I believe the hat maker was "Alex Breck" but the signature is difficult to read. Address is 4 Baker Place, Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Hat is 11 1/2" from front of brim to back and 9 1/2" wide from side brim to side brim.
