I stopped at a antique store today and saw this hat and thought it would look good on my skulls noggin. They said that it was from Paris in the late 1800's. Chapeau Laville Hdrs Concours Paris is printed in the liner. Under the liner printed on the hat is a coat of arms with KNOX under it. There is a label with,,M. GABRIEL on it.

    Thanks, kerry10456. I wonder if I can declare him as a dependent on my taxes Hedgewalker.

    As long as you've had to "dress" him, he's a dependant. ^.^

    Vontrike, I've got one of these(the hat) also, but mine is a P.ERNENWEIN of New York

    It seems to me that each hat was made custom to fit the buyers noggin. They are pretty cool.

    Peter Ernenwein had a hat shop on Nassau St. in New York City around the mid to late 1800's. He died in Ohio in 1902
