About this item

A 1956 bowler hat with the original hat box showing the label ‘Carrington & Sons Ltd, Felt hat makers, Stockport’. There is also a date of delivery ‘01NOV56’.

There are also two labels inside the hat itself, ‘Manufactured by Jas Becan & Co Ltd’ and ‘Best Quality’.

The leather headband is in good vintage condition but it does pull away from the hat in places, this does not affect its use. The hat is in overall good condition, as per its age, with some light staining to the silk trim.

The cardboard box has some wear and tear but looks great as a Vintage showpiece on the shelf. There is a lot of history with this hat as Stockport was once the hat making capital.

This hat and box will be carefully packaged and posted. Price is for both items.


Inside hat size - 7.5” x 6”
Brim size - 12” x 9.75”
Height - 5”
