The Constable - Bequeathed


Our loyal and steadfast vintage constable was originally an innocent pedestrian quietly and respectfully watching the world go round and round. We first removed the damaged original ribbon around the base and replaced it with a stunning metallic silver gross grain ribbon. We then added a vertical section of jewels, vertically across the top crown. The final accoutrement du jour is a vintage pendant, removed from a silver necklace, circa very very old.

This vintage hat is a size small/medium and fits most heads with a circumference of between 56/57cm. Every vintage Resurrection top-hat comes with a set of self adhesive sizing inserts, which allow the wearer to adjust the fit to their preference. These handy sizing inserts can be easily concealed under the inside band of hat. Depending on fit desired, an insert can be added to the center front as well as the center back. We will send 2 sets of inserts for the larger vintage hats and one-set with the small and medium hats.
