There are two faux pockets in the front as well as one large pocket inserted into the interior of the left tail. Overall condition is very good for a jacket of this period.

Hat, Jack Tar, Seaman's
Early 19th Century - SOLD


Antique Hat, Jack Tar Hat, Early 19th Century, angle view

Jack Tar is common term for early seamen, and we are offering a rare survivor of one of their waterproof hats. Tarred seamen's hats were worn by both American's and the English in much the same form as they battled common elements.

The seaman's hat was coated with black tar to ensure it remained waterproof while on the water. Our example is in remarkably good condition with a minor scratch on the surface of the slightly warped brim. The original band, generally a ribbon is missing but the threads to hold the band in place remain. Lined in linen the hat is stamped with W and Z on the interior. Early sailor's everyday items are rare survivors, especially in this condition. An opportunity to own a piece of history rarely found even in the most advanced collections.

Dimensions: 14" approximate diameter, 3" H.

For additional information about Jack Tar, both the term and the seamen see: Marine Art and Antiques, Jack Tar, A Sailor's Life 1750-1910 by J. Welles Henderson and Rodney P. Carlisle. Published 1999.
