An auction house is selling the hat Charlie Chaplin wore in real life - a white trilby.
Actor Chaplin is famous for wearing a black bowler on screen - but in real life favored a different style.
He often wore his white trilby - particularly while relaxing at his holiday home in Laguna, California.
For a time it was owned by Chaplin's granddaughter and fellow film star Oona Chaplin.
The hat eventually passed into the hands of the now owners after the house was sold.
Having passed between several private collectors, the hat is now once again up for grabs and is expected to fetch more than £2,500 ($3,114).
Auctioneer Andrew Stowe from East Bristol Auctions said: "Fans are eager to get a piece from their favorite movie star – and Chaplin is the ultimate movie star!
"Without him, cinema would not exist today.
''Whilst this hat isn’t his iconic black bowler that he wore in so many films, this carries a personal significance.
"This was his hat that he probably wore on strolls along the beach outside his home – far away from the Hollywood glare."
The auction takes place on May 27th from midday and the catalog can be viewed online.
