Early 20th Century Christys' Hats promotional bust, produced by Mancor Mitchem circa 1925. Made from Beritex - a type of pressed resin that is harder than plastic. Christys' Hats history dates back to its formation in 1773 by Miller Christy and his partner Joseph Storrs, with many notable events along the way, and the supply of iconic styles to both royalty and show business figures right through to the present day. Christys' was one of the first companies to register a trade mark on 1st March 1876 under the Trade Marks Registration Act. Styles of note that were designed and/or produced by the company include the Top Hat, Bowler, Trilby, Stetson, the Compton Corker and the Panama Hat. In the latter half of the 19th Century, Christys' became the worlds largest producer of hats, with over 3000 employed in the Stockport factory alone! Very Art Deco in style, this piece has all the stamps beneath, but does have some life scars (see photos). Ideal as a decorative display piece, or put your favourite hat on him - apparently he is a size 6 7/8, according to the hand written text underneath.

Measures: 35cm tall x 14cm wide x 20cm deep
