This is a wonderful quality black homburg styled hat made by Churchill. My understanding is that Churchill was founded during the late 1940s and was acquired by Resistol during the 1950s. Resistol continued to market the brand for some years after. I’m unsure of the age of this hat, but it is of obvious quality, so I would guess 1960s or earlier. The lining is stamped “Churchill Ltd™” and the sweatband is gold stamped similarly. The inventory ticket identifies the model as “Hutton” and the size as 7 1/2. The hat is made of very good quality fur felt. It measures 23 1/4” around the sweatband and 8 1/4” by 6 3/4” across the opening. It is in very good condition - no creases or wear to the exterior except for a tiny nibbled spot on the inner brim, really not at all noticeable (see last close-up photo) and no other pronounced wear or staining. This is a beautiful quality homburg hat - hard to find vintage Churchill hats....
