A recent acquisition that's been on the market for awhile. Perhaps because there are no examples to be found and information on Harry Rolnick is non-existent, other than the merger info that most are aware of, at least in the searches I've done. The hat itself is quite well made, though it's a bit primitive in regards to later hats. Considering its age, I find that adds to the appeal. Obviously hand made. The dress weight felt is very dense and will accept any crease dry. The finish is good, though not 100 fine, more 25 like. The 2" sweat is great. Still soft and pliable. A pleat in the leather is visible. This was caused by a ribbon stitch that reaches across and tugged on the leather just enough. Hard to believe it held all these years. The white sales tag has 'Ceiling Price' printed but the price is not visible. Remnants of a size tag. The wine colored liner is made of a heavy satin that is quite luxurious. Evidence of a preexisting cellophane tip liner. The 3" brim is bound and the stitching is fine. Look closely and you can see the slightly scalloped edge, showing the brim was likely trimmed with scissors. Let's see yours.
