United Kingdom. A late Victorian Royal Navy Officer's Visor Cap

Fabricated from a black wool on the exterior, featuring the classic high peak, the upper edge trimmed in black wool covered piping. It has a 32 mm wide band in black wool displaying a repeating thatched-look pattern around its circumference. There is a 78 mm (w) x 76 mm (h) Royal Navy officer's cap badge on the front, the silvered fouled anchor mounted to a black felt disk in the centre, the disk surmounted by the Victorian crown in gold-coloured bullion wire interlaced with gold-coloured sequins, the base of the crown with black threading, the voided areas of the crown in red felt, the surrounding leafing in silvered and gold-coloured bullion wire, in various textures, on a black wool base. The stiff visor is finished in black patent leather, with a reinforcing strip in black stitched in place on the edge.

There is a black patent leather strap with dual adjustable sliders that runs across the front between the blackened bronze buttons on either side, each of the buttons bearing an anchor surmounted by the Victorian crown. The underside of the visor is in a hunter green synthetic material, the sidewalls and dome lined in a black cotton. the underlying framework in a thatched wicker-like material. It incorporates a 40 mm wide sweatband in leather, the upper with a smooth brown finish, the ends of which are sewn together via brown threading. The cap measures 225 mm in width x 245 mm in depth x 115 mm in height, exhibiting wear in select areas on the black wool band, along with light crazing on the upper and soiling on the underside of the visor, with light wear on the leather sweatband. It is of very fine quality manufacture, the cap badge remaining pristine, the cap itself free of mothing. Better than very fine.
