Court Dress Hat 1775 by GeneralVyse Court Dress Hat 1775 by GeneralVyse
Hand sewn gentlemans hat of the 1775 War of independence period.

The hat is wool felt, the button is chromed base metal with diamantes, the cockade is velvet. The lace is silver metal cord. It's a bit of a small size, i'm hopefully going to be able to stretch it to a wearable size.

It took about four hours work and i've got pretty sore fingers now!

If anyone's interested in buying one of these please Note me for details. I also take commisions for Military or other civilian hats made to your specifications.
