A vintage 1930s silk top hat in a leather bucket shaped carrying case. Ideal for formal evening wear, Royal Ascot, formal wedding - or for a night at the opera, any vintage costume event etc.The top hat is made by Army & Navy Stores Ltd Westminster London. It is black silk with a felt black hat band. It is lined with silk and has a cream leather inner hat band. The hat is in very good condition with a couple of very minor marks but nothing serious.
Hat size is small - inner circumference is 55 cm - from front to back across the opening is 20cm and side to side is 16cm. Tower height is 14.5cm.The leather box has paper labels for The Canadian Pacific Ocean Services and London and North Western Railway. The handle is in good condition and this box has the lid cross strap which fastens with a brass lock - sorry I do not have the key but lock is open so will fasten shut without locking.
The lid has damage and the box has a number of knocks, scratches and worn spots but I think with some work could be restored. The case is lined with red velvet. The lid is attached by a leather strap which is worn but not broken.
