What is the Caliphs of Bagdad?

Little is known about the Caliphs of Bagdad. According to the American Heritage Museum, they were active in Pennsylvania in the early 1900’s, but little else is known. They have two Caliphs fezzes in their collection at this time, hailing from roughly the same period.

The fez itself is constructed (rather than being blocked.) It is made up of two pieces of fabric – one being the conical body, while the other is the top. The Caliph of Bagdad logo is printed on the fez in a gold color and is good shape. The tassel is yellow, being attached by a short rope directly into the middle of the hat. Overall, the fez is pretty low quality (at least compared to others in the collection) but is in excellent condition for its age.
