Fine Dunn & Co Ltd London vintage Bowler hat in leather case

A vintage Dunn & Co of London black bowler hat in great condition. With a board and leather bowler hat case with early century travel labels attached.

The interior is of very well kept black silk bearing the logo. The rim is in excellent blemish free condition and is of a soft roan leather.

It is a solid but fairly light hat which has retained its classic British bowler shape perfectly.

From Wikipedia:
‘Dunn & Co. was founded in 1887 by George Arthur Dunn, a Quaker, who started by selling hats on the streets of Birmingham. Forty years later he had two hundred hat shops and as many franchises in other stores.’

The thick board case coated with black leather has kept the hat clean and protected over the decades in its lovely red lining.

The buckles and straps of the case are no longer intact, but it still serves to keep away dust etc and can be used with holding string to transport it. Though the leather has dried over the years, it has been fed with a good leather conditioner which has helped.

The case has a few original wonderful early 1900s travel labels to it, showing that it has travelled to Boulogne, a classy suburb of Paris, France at least once!

Need a great hat for a formal event, or a bold new look? Look no further.

Hat 30.5 front to back X 24 side to side. 20*16 internal. 57 inner brim diameter.

The hat measures 30.5cm tip to tail X 24cm wide. The interior measures 20cm front to back X 16cm wide X The circumference of the inner brim is 57cm. The case measures 37cm at the open top X 25cm at the base X 25cm tall.

Lovely vintage shop with outstanding customer service!! When I fall in love with this Victorian table I was not in the position to receive the delivery right away due to house move. Tim kindly agreed to store it for me until I was ready. Cannot recommend it enough!!! Thank you for my lovely addition to my home.

Absolutely over the moon with my purchase from Oaky Doke Vintage! I ordered a beautiful beech stool with red vinyl seat & it's just perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Delivery was very quick and packaging was extremely secure. Thank you Tim! :)

I absolutely love this site. Last year I bought a dansette record player and recently bought a vintage butterfly table. The delivery was very quick and very well packed so no chance of breakages. Both items were exactly as described and as in the pictures. If you want anything vintage or a bit different this is the place to shop and every item comes with a personal note.I will be using this site for many years to come. Thank you Tim for giving me so much pleasure with my purchases. X

Lovely vintage biscuit barrel in great condition. Solid, clean, and handy for storing the little bits and pieces that usually clutter up my bedside table. A bargain at the price, and delivery was super quick.

Found a wonderful cabinet via Etsy and was signposted to the Oaky Doke Vintage Home website for the best price! Very impressed with the excellent customer service, attention to detail and care shown by Tim, who helped arrange a courier with a very reasonable price for me, coming all of the way to Scotland! Communication throughout excellent. Delighted with the quality of the cabinet, it's unusual aesthetic and multi-function use. Just perfect for helping solve the storage issues in our wee flat! A very happy customer and would highly recommend Tim's vintage business. I'll certainly be browsing the website in future for future finds. Thanks so much Tim!

I am so pleased with my purchase of this stunning antique. I am all the way in Los Angeles and this is my 3rd purchase and I am so pleased with everything I bought. The postage was amazing and I can tell that Tim has great pride in his merchandise and his loyal customers. I will be coming back as much as I can. Thank you Tim for having an amazing store. I still think England has the best antiques. I highly recommend this store!🥰

Great experience ordering from Tim and his business! I ordered a beautiful vintage record player - everything was as described on the website and Tim wrote up some very helpful instructions and advice for using the player too. Communication was fast and detailed, and Tim arranged for my player to be delivered by a trusted courier. Would recommend and use this company again. Thanks again Tim

Fantastic! The phone we purchased circa 1930s is the perfect addition to our recent home purchase that was built in the 30s! The home came with a place where phones like these would have been and it looks great! Tim, thanks for a wonderful purchasing experience and I’m sure I will be back to find my next vintage item!
