Antique Knox Beaver Fur Top Hat Size 7 1/8 w/ Original Box

This is a Fantastic Beaver Fur Top Hat Made By Knox of New York for John T. Shayne & Co. of Chicago. I believe that its a size 7 1/8 (the previous owner wore 7 1/8 as a younger man and 7 1/4 later on -and this one sits on my head like ones tagged with the smaller size). I'm not certain how old it is, but other listings for these hats are dating them from anywhere between 1900 and 1930. The overall Condition is Very Good with a little bit of denting around the crown towards the top. The outer band is in nice condition, as is the leather sweat band inside of the hat. The silk lining is intact and there isn't any Beaver fur missing or damaged. It comes with its original Knox box that has a taped tear in it

 
At 6 1/2" high this hat will look great on a shelf or insure a wearer will stand out in any crowd
