Polish Hat Eagles

Article about: In my opinion this particular cap eagle was made by G.J. Garratt Toronto. Very unique, hard to find.

    Thanks Artur. I’d been after one of these Lock & Co. caps for a good spell before finding this one. The wait was worth it as this one has survived in unusually good condition. Many of the ‘Lock’s’ I’ve seen (although due to their scarcity I haven’t seen all that many) suffer from a very characteristic deformation, usually in the hat band area around the middle which seems predisposed to start leaning or collapsing. This then introduces stresses elsewhere which throws everything out of whack. See below for a classic example.

    As far as the history of this particular cap, it comes from an old collection in the US and was purchased from the son who inherited the collection upon his father’s passing. Unfortunately no information exists about the medical corps captain that originally owned this rogatywka.

    To get back on topic, the eagle is a standard Gaunt product, pics of which have been posted many times throughout this thread. This one has the threaded post with the typical unmarked brass Gaunt nut.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Just before Festivities, a small curiosity for all of You to think about / enjoy guessing.

    Some of you may remember the Ebay listing of couple of months ago.

    The Eagle “Stanislaw” – per Seller’s statements allegedly the Eagle did belong to Stanislaw Skalski.

    Surly, it can not be true or is it?

    I have found examples of Skalski’s Signature(s).
    I would say – S seems to match the pattern of the original – or perhaps, it is just perception?

    What do You think?
    Shall we have Festive Season – vote?

    Tony,
    Is the banding round the rogatywka a light dove grey ???
    Have you considered it might (and I mean might) be Polish Airborne ??
    (Is it of British manufacture ?).

    Hi Gary,

    That particular hat belongs to a museum in Chicago, and the band appears to be a light blue, used in the transport corps. The rogatywka pictured in post #521 is mine. Both are products of the James Lock & Co. Hatters, London.

    Cheers,
    Tony
