Victorian Era Large Black and White Check Silk Shawl

This is hard to date, but I am thinking late Victorian, possibly early Edwardian. It's a lightweight silk taffeta weave shawl in a black and white fine check center and a wide tan and white plaid border on two corner edges, with a similar border in black and white on the other corner. The edges are finished with silk tassels in tan. A paper tag notes this as "Mrs. Cornelius Van Gusdale's Shawl".

Vintage 1910s-20s Grey Top Hat SZ 7 1/8

This vintage top hat is a grey wool fabric (not felt) mounted over a hard base. The sweat band is pebbled brown leather with a glued seam (that's older than stitched) and a small bow. The size sticker is an older style, too. The hat came to me in a Cavanaugh hat box, with notation that this hat belonged to Grandpa Asher Pearce.

Asher Pearce was born 1841, died 1936 in the Richmond,Indiana area and served as a 1st Lt. in the 57th Indiana Regiment during the American Civil War. The 'P' sticker has the remains of an 'A' next to it, so I think this was indeed his hat. I just think it belonged to 'SNJ' first as those initials were perforated into the band when the hat was made. As to period? I am thinking 1910s-1920s, but could be as late as the 30s. Toppers are very hard to date. The Cavanaugh hat box with the provenance notations is included. This will increase shipping due to size and weight.

Label: Monogram SNJ.

Size: labeled a 7 1/8. Crown: 22 1/4", Brim: 1 7/8", Height 5 1/2"

Condition: Excellent, but for age spotting throughout.
