This P. & C. Habig trademark was registered in 1989 by Angelika and Barbara Habig. Barbara Habig revived the brand in 2006 but doesn't appear to be any recent activity.

P. & C. Habig Wien Special Zefir, size 58cm, 100 grams, early to mid 1950s, very good condition. Specially made for Carl Kellner, Hamburg, Germany. I really like the trademark Habig bow design and contrasting brim binding. Also fantastic pliable light weight - light gray felt.

P. & C. Habig Wien, measures 59cm, probably 1930s. This is my first complete pre 1940s P. & C. Habig Wien soft felt so rare. I haven't seen the liner logo or black sweatband before. It has hair grease discoloring on the liner but other than that it's in very good condition.

"Alte Hutmacherwerstätte " (19. Jahrhdt.) "Technisches Museum, Wien, XIII."

15631061019_db6c7a9426_o.jpg

15196915324_6489f74afd_o.jpg

I recently received this old Austrian postcard. The Old Hat Maker Workshop at "Technisches Museum Wien" was financed by Peter Habig who was the founder P. & C. Habig Wien. He died in 1916 so probably the workshop was constructed in the very early 1900s. I don't believe it survived WWII but I am checking with the museum. The hat makers last name Hasenreiter is Hare Rider in English.

I found out the exhibit very sadly didn't survive a renovation of the museum that took place in 1992. Here are two additional photos of the exhibit.

P. & C. Habig Wien - Berlin "Special Qualität" with "Auto Cape", size 58cm, very good condition, 208 grams, probably mid 1930s. The hat has an very unique inner gray felt shell. The felt shell might be removable but I am not going to take a chance trying to remove it. The felt shell adds extra weight but the hat is still very comfortable to wear. I guess "Auto Cape" could be related to the felt shell. There is a patent number (Austrian or German?) that might lead to something. The hat was made for the P. & C. Habig Berlin store at Friedrichstrasse 82 which didn't survive WWII. I think it might be from the 1935 because "35" is last number on the paper label number sequence. Also came with a smaller size old Christys' London Bowler that was sold by a Berlin retail store.

I was able to find the Austrian Patent (133275) stamped on the sweatband of the above P. & C. Habig Wien - Berlin Melone with the felt insert that P. & C. Habig Wien called "Auto Cape". The patent claim is to make a stiff felt hat that is resistant to denting and the felt insert being a part of the invention.

Drawing from the French Patent(756192A).

16531625274_4a3a032415_b.jpg

This is the Austrian Patent(133275) from 1932 and an addendum from 1936.

http://germanaustria...hans-frankmann/

This is the French Patent (756192A) from 1933. The translation might be a bit more clear in this one.

http://germanaustria...olf-sindermann/

The inventor Adolf Sindermann has a good number of hat related patents. His company was a major supplier of felt stumpen and capelines.

Some how I missed this P. & C. Habig Wien catalog posted by Robert (RLK) on the FL back in 2010. My guess is early 1900s.

P. & C. Habig Wien "Extra Qualität", 1980. This Silk Top Hat belongs to the grandson (Jonathan) of Victor Böhm.

In 1975 P. & C. Habig Wien purchased all the equipment and silk plush stock from the last manufacturer of Silk Top Hats Spoorenberg of Holland. It would be interesting to know what happened to this equipment and silk plush stock (assuming there was any left) when P. & C. Habig went out of business in the late 1980s.
