A reenactors dream hat, all original, and very unusual mid Victorian asymmetrical hat, very bold design, stiff brim and crown with deep indents to the front creating a winged profile. Hat is in good condition as to age, it has wear to the velvet pile, and some of the bands of velvet round the brim are slightly loose (they could easily be tacked back into place), the whole look is slightly puritan yet oddly beautiful. The inner circumference is about 22", no labels, this was made by the local tailor, I think it could work either for a man or a woman, totally period and authentic.
