Qing Dynasty Seven Level Officials Hat

Post by Peter_Suciu » Mon May 13, 2019 9:34 am

Conical hats such as this one were worn by the Imperial Chinese Army under the Qing Dynasty as well as by the insurgent "Boxers" during the Boxer Rebellion. This particular style of conical hat could accurately be called a “helmet” as it is produced in a way that would provide some protection from blows the head. It is constructed via a weave pattern that provides strength and rigidity – unlike other conical hats that merely provide protection from the sun and weather. This style of hat was used by Imperial Chinese Army forces in the Taiping Rebellion, the First Sino-Japanese War and the Boxer Rebellion.

This one is rather special in that it is to a "seventh level" official including a court official or military officer. It is complete with its original storage/transport box.

Thanks guys. It is all about developing a network of dealers and other collectors. My bank account has suffered this year however!
