    Got this old top hat box at a junk sale. Rogers Peet, evidentually the top hat makers of the stars back in the day. The leather is pretty rough, but a nice handle and inside. Not sure why someone put those straps inside, but easily removable. Any body know where I can get a Rogers peet top hat at a decent price?
    Was told this was used in the upcoming movie King Bolden, the guy who trained Louis Armstrong. Filmed in Wilmington NC.
    Will look for it in the movie.

      Don't remove the leather strap inside, it's original to hold the pieces in the lid.

      thanks trunker, looks like i'm going to have to find a piece of leather to cover the whole thing
      why would the handle be on the front and not the top?

      I don't know, most handles are on the top. But even some other small trunks, uniform cases, etc. are found with the handle by the lock so it's not the only one made this way.
