Product details

The Rigsbee family owned large amounts of land in what is now Durham, NC. During the 1920’s, James. B. Duke purchased some of the land; Duke University’s West Campus now sits on the site of the family’s homestead. A portion of Rigsbee Road, near downtown, keeps their name tied to Durham. Taking its shape from the cloche popular when Duke purchased the homestead, the Rigsbee Cloche shows a hint of unexpected color on the underside of the brim.
