Founded in 1838, the Knox Hat Company flourished in the mid- to late C19th--Abraham Lincoln's "stovepipe" hat was made by Knox in their Brooklyn factory, then the largest hat factory in the world.

Knox functioned as an independent hatter until the Great Depression, when it merged with Cavanagh and Dunlap to became The Hat Corporation of America.

This is a lovely formal black Knox, size 7. It is in excellent condition apart from some minor foxing on the headlining. It comes with a Stetson hat box for storage.

Asking just $30, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
