Victorian Leather Hat Box (SOLD)

£795.00

A rare and large round Victorian leather hat box, made from leather, with the original leather strapping and a superb red velvet lining. C1880

The hat box became a popular item in the 19th century – matching the popularity of hats for both day and evening wear – and accessories were produced to assist with both storage and cleaning. While milliners often packaged designs they sold in cardboard hat boxes, more robust designs were produced for travelling and were made from leather, masking them better protected for travel.

I superb example of Victorian luggage, in fantastic condition with beautiful patina.
