As this hat was worn, there was an emperor in Berlin. Our fable for this time is reflected in this label: „C.W. Borchert * Hoflieferant S M des Kaisers & Königs * Friedrichstr. No 157 * Berlin W“.
Imaginative summer straw hat with many lovingly designed details: silk ribbon, silk rosette, garlanded ornaments of straw at the brim and a decorative rosette (see photos). The hat has a double layer silk lining, crowned with the gold-colored label of the purveyors to the court. We can assure you: very, very rare and hardly to find! Near mint condition! This is reflected in the price.
As something special, a hatbox from the same purveyors to the court, probably for a man's hat (see photos). The decoration is not included in the price.
