Genuine hard type bowler hat. Been stored (boxed) many years but superb condition. Cream silk lining and leather headband. Made by Scott & Co, 1 Old Bond St. London. “Hatmakers to the Queen”. Quite large size. Circumference 59cm – size 7 ¼ to 7 3/8 in older UK measurements. Oval fitting with 20cm front to back and 16cm side to side.
Far too good to be a “party hat” or to be thrown away. Much better if someone will really wear it – does anyone wear a bowler these days? Best donation to Help for Heroes will secure.
