Christy's top hats: The top hat's place in English history was assured when Prince Albert started wearing them in 1850; the rise in popularity of the top hat led to a decline in beaver hats which had been popular up to that point, sharply reducing the size of the beaver-trapping industry in America. Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, gives a full account the top hat from it's inception to present day.

Miller Christy began making the finest quality hats in London in 1773. The large, red hat boxes with the "Christys' London" name embossed in gold are a familiar sight wherever quality hats are sold.

This is a beautiful hat box that is made specifically for Christys' hats but works for any. This hat box can accomodate any hats but is mainly used for shop displays because of its size. Colour: Red, Size: Large
