Here is an incredible find, an antique hudson seal fur hat made by Hansen’s Empire Fur Factory of Milwaukee Wisconsin in original box. It is marked Extra Quality Genuine Hudson Seal . The Hansen company was owned by two brothers but they split up and in 1890 John Hansen founded the Empire Fur Factory. I have found records of this company until 1905 but after a fire records end.
This wonderful hat measures approximately 21 1/2″ in circumference on the inside of the hat.
The hat is in excellent condition. The box has seen better days, but it still exists, which is amazing.
