At the end of the 18th century the revolutionary top hat replaced the aristocratic tricorn and continued on as typical men’s headwear until the middle of the 19th century. This form, which widens conically upwards, and displays a curved brim, is characteristic for the 1830s. The material was altered according to season. In summer, a lighter hat of woven cane was favoured.
