Oh what a Dandy! Made by Dunlap & Co. N. Y. as per the label printed on the inside cream silk top and copyrighted, this Beaver Top Hat is such a handsome accessory to display on your hall tree or on a gentleman's chair in your parlor. The nap of the beaver lies smooth as silk on top and all around. It feels like butter to the touch and has a black felt band around the base. The brim is covered in silk grosgrain ribbon which shows a bit of wear in front where the original owner must have tipped his hat in a dapper way to the ladies as they walked by. It appears that the inner leather band that touches the forehead has been removed but that would not be noticed and I have priced this nice hat accordingly. The hat inner circumference is a mere 21.75 inches, likely too small to wear unless the gentleman's head is sized as in days of yore.

Inner Measurements:
21.75 inch inner circumference
7.5 inches long X 6.25 inches wide

Outer Measurements:
7 inches High
9 inches wide
11.5 inches front to back

I am not an expert in selling vintage fashions but I would say this hat is in good condition. Please look at the photos closely for reference and ask any questions you may have.
