WISKO "Rossach Kosmos 1", 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 1 7/8 inches probably late 1930s. I think this Fur Felt or could be Wool / Fur blend. I couldn't find anything on WISKO. The paper label format is similar some other mystery German made hats of similar quality / time period.

Could be Wilhelm Ispert Köln. They were a whole seller / importer that are still in business today. If this is the case I am not sure what hat company made the hat for them. I couldn't find any hat company with W.I.S.K.O. initials.

The above listing is from the following exhibition guide that I found at the Gotisches Haus (Gothic House) Hat Museum, Bad Homburg. I took photos of a couple more of these exhibition guides. Eventually I will post their entire content.

"Exhibition and Meeting of Men's Hat Retailers from Nordrhein-Westfalen, June 14, 1950, "Gruga" in Essen/Ruhr"

Also listed in the Dehazet Supplier Directory For The Entire Hat Industry And Related Businesses" (1928).
