From what I understand, this hat box was considered an advertising hat box in the 1950's. When a person would go to Mallory Hats in St. Louis, MO and purchase a hat, they would be given this miniature hat box with a small hat and a coupon or certificate to give to a friend.
This beautiful box is 4" X 3 1/2" by 2 1/2" tall. It has a brown ribbon that can be tied around the top.
It says Mallory Hats on the lid and has a gold sticker on the side that says Famous Barr Co, St. Louis.
Overall this box is in great condition for its age.
This is a BOX ONLY - does not contain a hat or gift certificate.
