On a recent vacation in Los Angeles we had the good fortune to meet an antiques dealer who purchases large quantities of props from movie studios, furnishings and decorator items from hotel, restaurant and theatre chains etc. We bought several hand painted works of art which were commissioned in the 1950's for a restaurant chain in Los Angeles known as Claim Jumpers. When the original owner died his widow decided to sell the restaurants and their contents. This is a delightful painting on four 12" pine boards tracing the history and style of Western hats from 1750 to 1940. This is wonderfully executed and a fabulous conversation piece.
