It's really hard to see any difference between the Chamois and Chevreau finishes. I would say the Chamois finish has slightly more fuzz (especially Hückel Weilheim Chamois 2). The felts of both finishes are very dense with slight gloss so possibly made of Wild Hare. The felts are not super pliable but the felts are of very high quality with a very soft hand.

I have three Hückel Weilheim Chevreau and two Hückel Weilheim Chamois in different shades of gray. They are all from the late 1950s very early 1960s. I also have a Hückel Weilheim Chevreau in a fantastic shade of green.

Hückel Weilheim "Chamois", 56cm probably late 1950s early 1960s.  This fantastic hat belongs to Stefan (steur) on the FL.  Really like the brim stitching.  As usual great all around quality.

#1925 P. & C. Habig Hutfabrik

Posted by habigman on 13 July 2018 - 04:15 AM in Austrian Hat Companies

P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität" - Made Expressly for Eduard Pelger The Hague, missing paper label,measures 56cm, possibly early 1950s maybe earlier.  This great hat belongs to Stefan (seur) on the FL and here are his comments.
 
"P&C Habig homburg in brown. This one was part of a set of three with another Habig homburg in black (didn't buy that one) and the GB Borsalino fu Lazzaro homburg (posted earlier). According to the vendor part of the same auction. Makes sense. The black one was from 1952 and the GB Borsalino is from 1935. My guess is that this one is in between (it's lost its label); forties to early fifties.
Size 56, brim at 6cm and crown 10cm at the pinch. Unlined with a cloth crown patch. This is the "before" shoot. Most of the stains on the ribbon came out. Made expressly for Eduard Pelger, The Hague, which is still in business today. Fits me like a custom."

#1924 P. & C. Habig Hutfabrik

Posted by habigman on 12 July 2018 - 11:49 PM in Austrian Hat Companies

Lodenfrey München - P. & C. Habig Wien, size 58cm probably from 1959.  This appears to be a store model made by P. & C. Habig Wien.  The paper label has the P. &  C. Habig Wien name removed from the left side of paper label.  This fantatics hat belong to Stefan (steur) on the FL.  Lodenfrey München is still in business today.

Posted by habigman on 05 July 2018 - 10:52 PM in General Discussion

I contacted Zeitler - Karton, Murnau / Oberbayern about the Hückel Weilheim Hat Holders I recently found.

41147258100_2649ccd5e5_b.jpg

This is the translated reply I received from Mr. Herber of Zeitler - Karton, Murnau / Oberbayern (still in business today) regarding the Hückel Weilheim Hat Holder. I would like thank Mr. Herber for supplying this historical information.

https://www.zeitler-...n-zeitler.html#

"
Unfortunately we have no more samples of the Hückel Weilheim Hat Holder.

These should be made of solid cardboard and then coated with coloured paper.

The plate with the logo on the Hückel Weilheim Hat Holder was not manufactured in our company, as we assume that these were made of plastic/metal. (They are made of tin or tin like metal/alloy, S. Heck)

But I can imagine that this plate was hand painted.

These plates were probably delivered to us and we then installed them on the Hückel Weilheim Hat Holder.

These Hückel Weilheim Hat Holder should have been manufactured in the 1950s.

You will find attached three pictures of Huckel hat boxes, which were produced in our company in the 1950s."

Mr. Herber also sent me this photo of some of the Hat Holders and Boxes they made for other Hat Factories (Mayser, Rockel, Ottmar Reich, A. Peschel Dinkelsbühl) and Hat Stores (Breiter Hüte).

Società Anonima Cappellificio Monzese, 58.5cm, Wool, possibly late 1950s. There is no paper label behind the sweatband. The Wool is fantastic and easily dry creases. Unique ribbed sweatband. Came a German source so probably originally sold in Germany.

Berlin Gubener Hutfabrik "Turf", Weather - Proof, Crown Open 5 1/2, Brim 2 1/2 inches, 55cm probably early 1950s. The mixed color felt on this hat is really extraordinary. Also great form and interesting Bow and Over Welt. I am guessing Friedrich W.

#1907 Josef Mauerer Hutfabrik Wien

Posted by habigman on 21 May 2018 - 10:14 PM in Austrian Hat Companies

Borsalino "Cocisca", French Point Size 5 1/2, 2.9 ounces / 83 grams probably early 1960s.  This hat was sold by Mauerer Vienna so for the Austrian market.  The felt is very light weight with a fantastic Chamois finish and interesting "Ramarro" Green color (Verde Ramarro = Green Lizard).  If you look closely you can see a stitched brim binding most likely applied for stability + protection due to very light weight felt.

#1906 Anton Pichler Hutfabrik, Josef Pitchler & Söhne

Posted by habigman on 19 May 2018 - 08:53 PM in Austrian Hat Companies

Josef Pichler & Söhne Graz, 56cm, possibly later 1930s early 1940s (see below).  The hat is in NOS condition but unfortunately the brim was trimmed down to 2 inches.  It came with the 1930s light green JHS "Standard Crystal Velour"  I posted last week and was sold by the same store Rudolf Hanus Wien so it could be from a similar time period.  The overall quality of this hat is high and the felt is fantastic (color, finish, hand).  Josef Pichler was a brother of the more well known Anton Pichler.
