This stunning antique Leather Hat Case is made to a very high standard and the extra large size makes it a rare item that can house a full hat collection. There is room for two top hats, one in the main padded compartment and one next to it plus extra room for a pop up opera hat, army cap, gloves, scarfs or what ever you need for the occasion.
The case features beautiful details like twin brass locks, brass rivets, engraved interior buckles and a stunning red silk padded lining to the main hat compartment and top. The front of the case is embossed with a monogram N.B.S. and under the lid is marked Norman B Smith Prov. R I.
Most likely dates from the early 20th century. Around 1920's.
All the locks, straps and clips work as they should and the lining is in super condition. There is no key but the locks and latches close and open perfectly with the push buttons.
A very usable case but also ideal for home decor, shop display or photography / film prop as it is so beautiful.
