Laurel & Hardy bowler hat to go under the hammer

Breaking News

NEW YORK -- A bowler hat worn by comedian Stan Laurel, half of the 1930s slapstick double act Laurel and Hardy, is to be auctioned in New York later this month, Christie's auction house said Wednesday.

The iconic black bowler, so often used as a pantomime prop by the comedy duo, was expected to fetch up to $15,000 in the sale, which also features three of the funnyman's bow ties and a binder full of gags.
