I also received this "Hats Off" Exhibition Catalog from Radek Polach of the Nový Jičín Museum. This exhibition features hats made by Hückel, Peschel and Brüder Böhm (most pre WWII). It is in Czech but has some nice photos. All three hat factories were located in Nový Jičín and where nationalized as TONAK after WWII. The Hückel and Peschel famalies ended up in Germany where they opened factories while the Böhm family opened a factory in Austria.

Here is a Nový Jičín Museum booklet (the first part is ladies hat companies) with info (in Czech) and photos of Hückel, Peschel and Brüder Böhm operations. I have never seen (although some of the hats above could be) a Peschel or Brüder Böhm that was made in Nový Jičín. They are beyond rare.

I received this Hückel Exhibition catalog from the Nový Jičín Museum. It is in Czech (Czech posters can read) but the photos are interesting. The exhibition runs until the end of February. Hückel was nationalized as TONAK after WWII. The Hückel family ended up in Weilheim Germany where they started a hat factory. They owned the Hückel name rights for Germany and closed business in 1975. TONAK owned the Hückel name rights outside of Germany starting in the mid 1950s.

I was sent this photo from Radek Polach who is in charge of the hat collection at the Nový Jičín Museum and is the author of the Hückel exhibition catalog. This photo is from the opening of the Hückel exhibition. The ladies to the right and left are Hückel family members. They were both born in Nový Jičín but ended up in Germany shortly after WWII.
