Miniature Tin Anniversary Hat

Gifts of tin were commonly exchanged by couples in the Victorian era of the 19th century. These gifts were often in the form of apparel including both men and women's hats, shoes, collars, etc. Items were generally made 'life size' so to speak. Top hats were a common form, but this is the first miniature we've seen. From New England, it stands less than 4" tall with a brim measuring 6 1/2" in diameter. Although this example is simple in design it is very well made and is in great condition.
