Posted by Celia on the FL.

Interesting, there is also a privately owned hotel chain in Vienna called Schick Hotels. Not sure if there's any relation. I have come across a couple of Hut Schick hats on the Austrian market, but haven't bought them as they were in bad condition. Here is a picture of their shop in the Alserbachstrasse (9. Bezirk), taken around 1935. on the shop it says Hutmacher, so I assume they did make hats, not just sell them:

And an advertising photo featuring the actor Otto Wilhelm Fischer ca 1955:

Both images courtesy of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, here are the source links:

It is indeed a surname, the firm was founded by Wilhelm Schick, who died in 1934, aged 77. Here's his obituary notice:

More genealogical information about Wilhelm Schick can be found here: https://www.geni.com...000017674124363

Schick is also german for chic, so the name of the firm had a double meaning.

I also found a few more things related to the firm:

One of their cards with the receipt for hat repair work on the back:

Great info and nice early photo of O. W. Fischer (then a famous actor in the germanophone world), thanks!

Great to hear from you! I am thinking they might have made some hats but probably not the Melone I posted above.

Hut Schick Wien, 58cm, Brim 4,5cm, Crown 11cm probably mid 1950s. The front brim is shorter than the rear brim which is very unusual. This Homburg belongs to Stefan (Steur) on the FL.
