In the 1880s small 'bowler' type hats were used for riding.  The were not always decorated although some small feathers do not distract from the hat.  On occasion the crown was shortened which lead to the hat looking a little more like a Derby than a Bowler.


Of the three that are currently available the first is a full bowler shape in fawn felt with Lady Amherst Pheasant feathers.


The second has a shortened crown and is therefore a Derby shape.  It is made in a stunning purple felt.


The other bowler hat on his page is in black felt with four curled goose feathers at the front and a small bow kept neatly in place with a ring of black pearls.


If you would this style in a different colour, with alternative decoration or in another size, one can be made to your specific requirements.  Use the Contact Us in order to discuss your requirements.

The other selections of percher hats we have availablel hat on this page  are buckram based covered in dupion silk and decorated in various ways.  


The first in made in brown dupion with beige and cream bows and it also has a little bird on the lefthandside (not real).


Then we have a blue hat with silk embroidered ribbons and a similar midi 'tyrolean shape in red with ostrich feathers and a silk fan shape at the front.  The red hat is slightly larger than the blue one, but the pattern is similar.


These hats can be made in a range of colours with differing decoration.  I am quite proud to say that I do not make exactly the same hat twice!
