Edwardian Leather Hat Box

SKU: RJ01664
£200.00Price

In the 19th century and early 20th century travel was by carriage, train or sea. Particularly in the 19th century, people's clothing was quite bulky, especially for ladies as they would wear several layers of elaborate clothing and so suitcases and trunks needed to be quiet large. The majority of these cases would be leather, and the more expensive the case the heavier it would be. Large trunks were made from metal and wood, often covered in canvas with wooden struts to protect them. Up until the second quarter of the 20 th century, all people of society were expected to wear hats so hat boxes were needed for their transportation. To leave home for any length of time required an extensive array of luggage, and often staff to carry it.

 

An Edwardian leather hat box with original velvet lining. This would have most likely have been used by a gentleman for carrying a top hat.

 

Condition is very good with no splits to the stitching. The lining has retained its original vibrant colour.  The hat box closes well for carrying.

 

Dimensions: 34 cm x 32 cm x 23cm high
