    I just acquired this bowler derby hat. I have not seen one like this one. It has vent holes in the sides. It's made by Wingert & Haas (successors to H.L. Boas) of Lancaster, PA. As you can see, the hat is in really nice condition for it's age.

    I've researched but can only find an advertisement for Wingert & Haas in a January 12, 1906 issue if the Lititz (PA) Record Newspaper.

    Does anyone on CW have any further information on this hat and the manufacturer? I'd love to know something more about it and how old it is.
    Thanks for the Help!
    Scott

      Thanks Jewels!! I have several top hats. But, this is my only bowler hat. I really like it too.

      Do you hat stands to display them? I'm always on the look out for hat stands, I love them!
    6. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      *have, have hat stands :)

      Most are in their hat cases (or hat trunks if you will) or boxes. They're sort of hard to clean when they get dusty.
    8. Jewels Jewels, 7 years ago
      True! That's good you preserve them so well :)
    9. jscott0363 jscott0363, 7 years ago
      Thanks! I like to preserve them. But, people have had a tendency to want to pick the hats up and play with them when they come visit. Since these are very old and fragile, I'd prefer to prevent any misfortune happening to them. Several have some real value to them and I'd like to keep it that way.
