A little boy's Victorian tam hat from the later 1870's to 1890's era. This 19th century hat is extremely nice. It is a cloth fabric in a linen / cotton, raised weave, stripe pattern. 

The fabric reflect the colors of autumn in a striking brick red-brown background with fabric stripes in a golden rod yellow  The same color shade is used for the lining fabric. Between the lining and outer fabric, it appears to be a heavier paper to hold the shape of the tam. A stiffened cardboard between the lining and fabric forms the hat band. A fabric bow fastened with a metal buckle accents the edge of the hat band on the one side. 

Stamped label inside is American Best Make, Warranted.  Image of a eagle is also displayed.  Size label is 6-3/8. 

Measurements:  21-1/4" circumference around the hat band.  Height of the crown is about 3" tall.

Condition:  Very nice. A few spots on the inside lining.  A slight overall fading of the fabric just on the top of tam from light exposure. 

An adorable treasure.  Would fit a child about 6yrs of age.
