Antique Vintage STETSON Black Beaver Fur TOP HAT (Philadelphia) - GRAND PRIZE:
$91

Early Beaver Top Hat made by the famous JOHN B. STETSON HAT COMPANY of Philadelphia. Known primarily for their Western Hats, a Stetson Top Hat is a rare find!

This is a great example of an early top hat. It is well constructed, sturdy and in splendid vintage condition. The Beaver Felt exterior is in excellent shape. The hat has a couple of ever so slight dents that are barely visible and only in certain lighting (but feel I must mention). The silk lining has seen better days, as it has pulled away from the leather band, with some silk missing. The silk on the inside bottom of the hat (where the Makers Stamp appears) is in good shape. The interior leather band (toward the front) does show some soiling from wear.

The Stetson Makers Mark is comprised of 4 circles each containing a detailed graphic with the inscriptions: “CENTENIAL 1876, PARIS 1878, PARIS 1889 and PARIS 1900.” Below that it reads: “GRAND PRIZE – JOHN B. STETSON COMPANY – 1108 CHESTNUT STREET, PHILADELPHIA.” Below this crest are the gold initials “DRP”.

There is no size marking on the hat. The brim measures 11” x 9”. The opening of the hat measures 6 x 7-1/2 inches with a circumference of 20-3/4 inches. The height (from the front base of the brim to the flat top) is 5-1/4”.
