This black silk opera top hat dates from the 1920s and was sold by the estimable haberdashery Stackpole, Moore, Tryon Co of Hartford. It is made of black silk and the interior is watered silk. There is no size indicated. This hat is in excellent antique condition with only very minor rubbing on the top edge of the crown, as magnified in photo #8. The black silk ribbon along the bottom edge of the crown has a slit in it and should be either repaired or replaced.

The crown measures approximately 5 3/4" high; the interior circumference is approximately 22"; the brim is approximately 2" in the front and in the back; the upturned side brim is approximately 1 1/2" on each side.
