Cabasset 1590

Tall form, small stalk, narrow down turned brim. A line of 14 iron lining rivets (replaced) near the base of the skull. Two rivets at the back above the line of lining rivets likely formerly to secure a plume holder. Delaminations in the skull some of which have grown to form holes near the point. Apparent smooth finish with old oxide and browning varnish. Brim with a plain inward turned roll with a narrow recess.

Measurements: 7 3/4 in. tall brim 9 1/4 in. wide and 10 in. long. Weight 2 pounds 4.8 ounces (1045g). Thickness: varies significantly in the lower half that is easy to measure. Mostly .05-.06 in. but some areas as thin as .04 in. and some thicker areas up to .07. There seems to be little pattern to the variation.
