This is retail store that had a house brand. According to this 1913 ad Rehfus & Cie (Kehl a. Rhein) made hats under the Borchert Marke. I have no idea if they were the only supplier and how long the relationship latest with Borchert.

Borchert Berlin W., size 59cm, back of sweatband stamped August 6, 1952. Could have been made by Rehfus & Cie. (Kehl a. Rhein) after factory reopened in 1951. Also the Borchert Berlin W. store location changed after WWII because the original location was in the Soviet sector.

Borchert Berlin W., measures size 59cm, super condition, with original box, probably mid 1950s. I think this one has great form!

The following was found by Celia on the FL.

On the website of the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin, you can check out old telephone directories. The one for 1941 does indeed list C.W. Borchert: http://digital.zlb.d...8/#topDocAnchor

According to this old receipt from 1898, the firm was founded in 1838:

You can see one of their top hats with original hatbox on the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek website (or at the Museum Europäischer Kulturen in Berlin):

I couldn't find any information about the firm after 1941 straight away (chances are the factory didn't survive the war). They are no longer listed in the 1951 phone book, but a shop (not factory) turns up called Borchert-hüte with an address on the Kurfürstendamm. I think you actually have one of their hats. I wonder if there's any relation to C.W. Borchert.
