Hello CW friends!
Today we have my Victorian era English made leather top hat case. This one is the rarest one in my collection. It was made by the W. Austin Company in Liverpool. This one was made in 1836.
This one is in really nice condition still and, with the exception of the single broken latch strap, is nearly 100% complete. Very supple leather that's nicely tooled on the top and sides of this case.
The name of the original owner is still etched into the top of the leather case. I cannot make out the name completely.
I'll post the interior of this case in my next post.
Thanks for stopping and having a look!
