This is an antique hat from an unknown country. Appears to be quite old. Hand made to a high standard. This is designed and constructed to an ornate level that most coolie hats do not have. Ribbed outerbrim with bambooinserts. Decorativemotif on the front crown and around the top in white. Top portion has a cross section of bamboo that goes in confuterdirections to make a pattern.
This actual hat was part of theGordon Wildermuth estate. He was a partner in the world famous architecture firmSkidmore, Owings & Merrill. It was displayedfor years at his residence in theJohn Hancock Building unit# 8904.
The hat shows very well, but does have some age related issues. The top has a small tear as seen in photos. Some of the ribbing is chipped. The outer wood framing has a few light cracks. The hat is still sturdy and can be handled. It will be well packed for shipping.
