Anton Pichler K.u.K. Hof - Hutfabrikant Graz, Pocket Hat Brush, 6 inches wide, probably early 1900s. I am thinking this was some type of promotional item that came with a hat. It's only about 1/4 of inch thick so could easily fit into a coat pocket. The K.u.K. Hof - Hutfabrikant distinction probably means it's WWI era or older.

Josef Pichler & Söhne Graz, 56cm, possibly later 1930s early 1940s (see below). The hat is in NOS condition but unfortunately the brim was trimmed down to 2 inches. It came with the 1930s light green JHS "Standard Crystal Velour" I posted last week and was sold by the same store Rudolf Hanus Wien so it could be from a similar time period. The overall quality of this hat is high and the felt is fantastic (color, finish, hand). Josef Pichler was a brother of the more well known Anton Pichler.
