Vintage Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco Bellhop Cap
From my personal collection; a rare vintage bellhop cap from the famous Fairmont Hotel atop San Francisco's Nob Hill.
The cap is cloth with gold embroidery of "Fairmont" across the front. The brim has a gilt ornamentation across. The visor is a black shiny coating over thick vinyl.
It is very well made by Appel Uniforms and has the owner's name inside.
The top of the hat is 10-1/2" in diameter and the hats sits 5-1/2" tall. The inside measures 7-1/4" by 7-1/2". Excellent condition.
This is such a fun piece. I wish bellhops still wore them. It would make a great conversation/display piece, or compliment to your hotel collection!
