Oh how I wish this Beautiful Victorian Leather Hat Box could share its history. I am sure there are many fascinating stories that could be told.

This is what I know about this Beauty. She was purchased in London by a couple who were on a buying trip for their antique store in Angleton, Texas. The previous owner in England has attached newspaper to the top and bottom of the box. The paper is dated April 19, 1947 and is from the "Psychic News". What I know about this paper is that "Psychic News" was a weekly British Spiritualist newspaper that was in publication from 1932 to 2010. In 2011 the paper resumed publication with issue #4067 dated 17 December 2011.

For the age and traveling this box has done, I feel it is in very good vintage condition.

The measurements are 14 1/2" x 16 x 9. I believe it is covered in black leather with gold stitching at the top and bottom edge. The front has a brown leather 7" handle, which is securely attached and the back has brown leather pieces under the sliding hinge. The brown leather on the back appears to add support to the hinge. There are three latches all in very good working condition. The box does have a keyed lock, but unfortunately I do not have the key.

The inside is covered in a Lovely Victorian fabric which I believe is linen, in a pink, red, green and brown floral pattern. The fabric is in very good condition with very little staining. As you can see in the pictures the fabric along the top edge has pulled away from the box, but it is still stunning.

This Beautiful Leather Hat Box is in such good condition, I would feel very confident about carrying my most treasured hats inside.

I will ship international please contact me for pricing.

When I purchase postage for your shipment, if it is less than what you paid, I will issue a refund to your pay pal account for any amount over $1.00.
