The box is from the same era as the hat - I have had similar ones which held a brush - mirror - as in a dresser box.

This was also in the attic. I assume it is a hatbox, but the derby I found yesterday is a little too large to fit in it. The box measures 10" across, 7.5" wide and 5.5" tall. It's so plain on the outside apart from the ornate clasp, it was shocking to open it and see the bright reddish-pink silk-like lining. Any idea as to the age and value of this vintage hatbox? Also, who might have made it?

That would work but it should be bigger and soft. New York is a great place to sell vintage. I would say price at 30 and then see what someone offers but be sure and give them the history.

Bowler hats aka Derby hats were first made around 1850 in England and became very popular well into the early 1900s. The particular style of your bowler looks -1900 or earlier Guyer purchased another hat company and became Guyer-Roelofs Co. around 1910.  I would clean with a soft bristle brush. Even with the fraying it is still desirable. Pricing depends on your locality.

I found a man's felt bowler (derby) hat in the attic. I know it WASN'T my dad's. I never remember him wearing ANY hat even on the rare occasion he dressed up. It may have belonged to the people that lived in the house before my parent's bought it. Inside on the band it indicated that it was made by the Guyer Hat Co. of Boston. I wanted to know when the bowler style hat was in fashion and what would be the best way to clean it as it is very dusty. It does have some fraying on the edge of the brim. Also, any idea what it would be worth at a yard sale?

Lillian, I think your coat is a bearskin coat from the 1930s-40s. They were quite popular back then. Value today around $100.

I was thinking of that. The nearest one is about 10 miles away.

That's a handy link for fur ID. I didn't really see any that looked very much like mine - I think the one that came closest is seal.
