    Rattletrap
    (656 items)

    My dad had this beautiful hat in his "Hat Collection" and I just found it in the old homestead when our daughter moved out of the house. While it was probably too formal for Church I thought that a pix with the hat and Walking Stick would be a nice reminder of the more " formal days" of our Nations past. We came from the poor side of the tracks as my grandmother was a young widow during the depression with three sons & clothes like this were not worn in their family. Maybe not even in the entire town of Eden Texas where dad was raised as a boy.

    2. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Rattletrap, this an INCREDIBLE top hat. Can you tell me who the maker is? I'd love to see some close up shots of the hat. But, might I say you do look very dapper wearing it.
      Thanks!
      Scott

      What a handsome photo ! great hat too . Is it made of beaver ?
    4. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Based on the shape of the brim, this one would be from around the 1880's (possibly older) to very early 1900's. After that period, these hats tended to be made with much flatter brims. This one is beautiful!!!

      My eye's are on that pot sitting on the mantel....
    6. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      SEAN68,
      That for the compliment. Assume you're referring to the hat & I agree about it being handsome. :)
    7. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Jscott0363,
      Thx for the love it. The hat is Beaver. Made by the Knox Co of NY. Sold by A.N. Cook & Co Boston Mass. Extra quality Beaver

      Manakin,
      Thx for the love it and nice comments. Yep it's a Beaver! I wish someone would come and trap the Beaver that keeps visiting my moms house and cutting down her trees! I'd rather he'd become someone's hat. He takes peach trees as well as Aspen etc!
    9. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      MelanieJ, thx for the love it. I love the pot too.:)
    10. getthatmonkeyoutofme getthatmonkeyoutofme, 5 years ago
      beside the nice pot iot is a wonderful carpet you stand on... seems to be silk?
      you have a president's look.... just great!
    11. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Quite a nice hat you have there.
    12. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      I'm in love Rattletrap!
    13. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Both hat and you look glorious!
      Carpet and pot too ;-)
    14. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Getthatmonkeyoutofme,
      Thx for the love it. The Persian carpet is a wool carpet. I collect them. Thx for noticing it. Few people have an eye for the beautiful hand tied Persian carpets.

      Kyratango,
      Thx for the love it and noticing the hand made pot on the mantel. Nice compliments for an old guy who rarely gets them. Thx

      Racer4four,
      Thx for the love it. As the old song goes: "What's love got to do with it" :):) it's just a cool hat.

    24. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
      LOL I have a son that traps beaver rattletrap but usually to relocate not kill so I doubt he would become a new hat :-) And he lives in a town called Beaver Dam to boot !
    25. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Manakin,
      Please send your trapping son to visit us. He can have the large wood eating rodent when he catches him. :):)
    26. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Manikin is the correct spelling. I get it. Sorry
    27. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
      Ok but it is deer season here so you'll have to wait a spell :-) and the walleye are running :-)
    28. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Manikin,
      Wow! You fish and chase Bambi? While I wait for your busy son to get his deer and fill the freezer with fish my nice fruit trees are becoming Beaver food. Humbug!

      Diaper Dan? Ha Ha! That's a good one!

      After wearing blue jeans everyday for years I would love if we could go back to the styles of old!
    33. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 5 years ago
      Rivalele,
      Hmmmm? I wear jeans, cargo pants or shorts every day but Sunday's, when I get dressed up for Church as a symbol of respect and submission to a Greater Power than I. U ought to join me if u want. I am "stepping back", to the "pre 60s" every Sunday. Except for the hat, this pix is a regular Sunday event. :):)
