Top Hat Beauford
This Black Top Hat comes with a 1.25″ grosgrain ribbon around the crown. Inside you will find an ivory silk lining. The hat features a short brim that curls up on the sides. The underside of the brim has an olive green woven fabric. One side of the hat has a tear that extends through the inside lining and is a little crushed. The napped fabric of the hat reminds us of beaver fur, but may be a wool fabric. It is very soft. You will see wear on the edge of the top and the brim.
The inside lining shows a stamp that says Trade Mark BEAUFORD Sackville St LONDON. Below this it says Manufactured for M.F. Shanley & Bro. Hartford, Conn. Along the inside edge you will see pencil writing 7-15 D and 1 134. It looks like an interior head band was removed. You will see signs of wear and tears inside.
