P. & C. Habig Wien, size 57cm but fits perfect, hat store was in Riga. This one was missing the liner and ribbon so had it restored by Optimo. It's definitely pre 1940 and could actually be from around WWI. This is the first pre 1940 soft felt P. & C. Habig Wien that I have encountered. Majors props go to Josh on the FL for the tip.

Custom made P. & C. Habig Wien, Special Zefir with Ventilo, size 59cm. My guess is mid 1950s.

P. & C. Habig Berlin Kreissäge (Boater), measures 59cm, thinking 1920s. I don't believe I have encountered a P. & C. Habig from the Berlin (see above postcard) so very rare plus in mint condition. The straw + weave are very flexible and light weight. I am very excited about this one.

P. & C. Habig Vienna Brass Plate (16,5 x 13 cm, late 1800s early 1900s)

Posted Image

I believe this is one of the crests used for export to non-German speaking countries. For German speaking countries it would have had Wien / Hutmacher instead of Vienna / Hatters. Highly possible it was displayed in one of the P. & C. Habig locations in Vienna.

I found that P. & C. Habig Wien were the last hat company to make Silk Top Hats.

1900 Paris Grand Prix Report by Peter Habig founder of P. & C. Habig Wien - Berlin

Found this book, Pariser Weltaustellung 1900

http://digi.ub.uni-h...522ad1d6c0bc6ec

Manfred, Fantastic book! I assume this Peter Habig is the founder of P. & C. Habig. It is interesting that he mentions light weight hats being an Austrian speciality. Most likely the light weight Bowlers (Derby, Melone) that were produced by P. & C. Habig (see Wanamaker US newspaper ads), JHS and others. JHS won the gold medal at the 1900 Paris Grand Prix for I believe their Velour hats. Not sure if P. & C. Habig won any gold medals.

Here a rough translation (from OCR) of his report on the hat factory exhibit.

P. & C. Habig Wien, Zink Gray Melone, Size Point 5, 130 grams, 1930

Rare to come across a gray Melone. Very nice felt and finish on this one. Very high quality which is expected for a P. & C. Habig Wien. The sweatband is date stamped October 16, 1930.
