Original handcrafted felt Western hat belonging to Walt Disney. A gold stamped logo on the inside of the brim reads, "Designed by Harry Rolnick for Walt Disney." Also inside the silk-lined crown an additional label of a cowboy on a bucking bronco reads, "Resistol - Western." Since the hat is custom-made, there is no size tag. However, the hat is approximately a size 7 1/2. The hat was given by Walt Disney to Marvin Davis, one of the chief designers of Disneyland, on a hot Southern California day when Davis was working at the Disneyland construction site. Originally from the estate of Marvin Davis, the hat can be seen being worn by Disney in numerous vintage photos. An important Disney relic from the 1950s when Disneyland was being built! In fine condition.
