Condition: Mint/In Box

This distinguished piece is the original Homburg hat belonging to Robert Leith “Dinny” Hanbidge QC, the 12th Lieutenant-Governor of Saskatchewan, Canada. The hat is crafted from a dark brown, almost black stiff fabric, emblematic of the early 20th century’s sartorial elegance. It has been remarkably well-preserved and comes housed in its unique octagonal cardboard hat box, which bears Hanbidge’s signature along with a reference to the Hotel Saskatchewan, a place with which he was notably associated. This artifact not only serves as a personal memento of a prominent Canadian figure but also as a piece of historical fashion from a significant era.
