    Wow, now THAT'S a topper. Shame with that ribbon, though. Plan on wearing it anytime soon? :D

    Ribbon is almost identical to the topper i posted before this one, nothing wrong with it. It fits, but it'll sit on display with my other 1880s topper abd 1880s green derby[​IMG]

    GoldenTopper.jpg Goldentopperside.jpg Golden topper innards.jpg Great toppers, the grey one reminds me of the little low crown derby I picked up recently.

    Reposting one of my favorite toppers I have in my collection. mid to late 1800's topper in a golden brown.

    Gorgeous hats, both of them, Justin. Not for everyday wear (unless you're called Fabio). Quite the finds!

    Agreed. haha. Just wanted to handle something older than the usual pieces in my collection. thankfully, the grey one is too small, and the black one will probably just see the limits of my yard, haha

    Solid indeed. Almost feels like a derby in the stiff category. with just a slight amount of give, but I'm sure steam wiuld make it a little more rigid

    I want to see you in full white tie or morning dress as the topper deserves. I bet you’d look smashing at the Royal Ascot.

    Spectacular! I see a lot of these opera hats on sale, but almost always damaged in some way. This one looks superb.
