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 b. 1841, died 1936 in the Richmond Indiana area and served as a 1st Lt. in the 57th Indiana during the 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.

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.

Vintage 1940s Imperial Stetson Men's Panama Hat SZ 7

Another classy hat. This fedora style genuine panama has a great shape. The hat band is a printed and pleated crepe. My understanding is that in terms of quality, Imperial was toward the top of the Stetson line, just below Premier. This one has a brown leather sweatband, embossed in gold. No liner, as befits a summer panama.  And we have the original box.

Labels: Imperial Stetson Genuine Panama, for Louis Appel Co., Inc. Louisville and owner's initials of PPA.

Size: Labeled a 7. Crown: 21.5", Height of Crown: 4.75", Brim width: 2 7/8",

Condition: Excellent. No holes, no stains, no breaks. Well cared for.
