Gieves Royal Navy Outfitters Pith Helmet White Size: Medium

£400.00

Product description

A wonderful white pith helmet. The helmet is still in good condition despite some staining on the shell. 

The helmet was produced by Gieves Ltd (Royal Navy Outfiters) at 21 Bond Street. Gieves Ltd started trading as 'Gieve Matthews Seagrove Ltd' in 1785 by Royal appointment and developed a name for themselves as a supplier for the Royal Navy . The name was modified to Gieves Ltd after end of Great War. This pith helmet is most likely from the interwar period. Whilst it cannot be verified the helmet is probably made from cork & canvas. 

Gieves has had many illustrious patrons over the centuries including Charlie Chaplin and Laurence Oliver. Gieves acquired Hawkes in 1974 and  became Gieves & Hawkes and relocated to Saville Row.  

The pith helmet comes complete with it is own (admittedly bruised and battered) trunk case. The case whilst personalised also carries the Gieves coat of arms. The inside of the case has a couple of embellishments to hold helmet in place.  The case has a clasp for fastening and handle for carrying. 

A marvellous piece of memorabilia for any collection.   

Measurement: Inner circumference approx 22".
