  3. Earlier
  4. Anton Peschel Neutitschein "The Superbum Superior" "E. Steinhard & Co. Czechoslovakia" possibly early 1930s. This fantastic Velour belongs to Wayne on the FL. By the way a "Superbum" is a Succulent plant from Mexico. https://worldofsucculents.com/graptopetalum-superbum-beautiful-graptopetalum/
  5. S. J. Fraenkel Wien, "Arola", 58 cm possibly late 1950s. This is my first S. J. Fraenkel Wien Homburg Hat find in my size range. The felt is of a heavier weight but still dry creases and has a soft hand. The components and workmanship are of excellent quality. This Homburg Hat was made specially for Thom. Janout Linz Hat Sales K.G.. Back in 2018 I fond a catalog from Thom. Janout, Hat Manufacturer Upper Austria, Linz, Austria (1924) so they stopped producing hats possibly after WWII. Open Crown Natural Light

  7. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Alpha", French Point 5 1/2, possibly early to mid 1930s. This hat belongs to Wayne on the FL.
  8. Wegener "Carrera" "Biber", 56 cm possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  9. Stetson - Mayser "Premier" "Lancer", 57 cm possibly early 1960s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description of the hat. "Bronze colour. Made under license in Germany. Size 57 with the overwelt brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10cm. It's not my size really, but this is a very attractive colour."
  10. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Platin", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description of the hat. "Velour Backbow in green (yes, green;)). Size 56 with the raw edge brim at 5,5cm and the crown at 10cm at the center dent, Weighs 114 grams. All pre-war Hückel velour hats are exceptional and I've handled a few, but this one is the best one yet. As a testimony to its quality: it made me buy a deep green hat without hesitation and it landed me in the Adolf Hitlerstrasse of all places. Wait, what? Let me explain. The hat was sold by Hut-Trescher of Freiburg and in
  11. Franz Gober München "Bayerland" "Alba", French Point 5 possibly 1930s late 1920s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Black Velour, Size 57 (but has shrunk somewhat) with the brim at 7cm and the crown 11cm at the center dent. This is a substantial hat in every way and that won me over. Weighs 147 grams."
  12. A. Peschel Dinkelsbühl "K", 56 cm possibly mid 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Peschel in dark brown. Size 56 with the bound brim at 6,5cm and the crown at 10,5cm at the center dent. Label only says quality "K" and not much else. I love these Peschel hats, because they always have a great hand to the felt and this one is no exception."
  13. Wegener "Extra", 58 cm possibly mid to later 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "Wegener Extra unlined in the colour Sylt. Size 58 with the bound brim at 7cm and the crown at 11cm at the center dent. Weighs 114 grams. I don't see that many unlined hats and certainly not by Wegener. The colours are great as well with the contrasting ribbon and brim binding, so I picked it up, even if it isn't my size. Sold by Hut Wagner, Bahnhofstrasse 21, Limburg."
  14. Echter Rockel Velour, 56 cm, possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. Here is his description. "ark grey with some distinct lilac tones to it. Very cool colour which is why it had to come. No label in this one unfortunately, but the liner was glued, so I'm guessing mid to late sixties. Bound brim at 6cm and crown at 11cm at the center dent. Rockel did know how to do velour and this one shows it. Weighs 110 grams."
  15. Getes, Georg Teufel & Sohn, Tuttlingen "Meisterklasse" "Soleil", 58 cm possibly mid to late 1950s. The Light Gray Soleil Velour shows a nice gloss. This hat is machine formed but has nice dimensions + style. Natural Light
  16. Windsor, 58 cm, possibly late 1950s. The black felt has a soft hand and easily dry creases. I am still not sure what hat company made the Windsor mark. Open Crown Natural Light
  17. Getes, Georg Teufel & Sohn, Tuttlingen, "Antilope", 58 cm possibly late 1950s early 1960s. This hat is machine formed but has nice dimensions + style. I have never encounter Georg Teufel (&) Sohn, Tuttlingen so I will have to see if I can find any information. They don't come up on any of my lists. There is another Getes in this find. Natural Light
  18. Georg Teufel & Sohn / Getes, Tuttlingen, Since 1851 Ludwigstaler Str. 17, 72 Tuttlingen Klockhaus' commercial trade and trade address book of the German Reich Volume 7, 1892
  19. Rockel "Jupiter", 58 cm possibly mid to late 1950s. The Chamois like felt is fantastic (color, finish, hand) and easily dry creases. Also really like the form and mid width band / ribbon. Unfortunately the liner is missing so I might look for a replacement. This is the third hat from my recent seven hat find. Open Crown Natural Light
  20. Rockel "Velourette", 58 cm possibly late 1950s. The finish is Chamois like so I would be interesting to know why Rockel chose the "Velourette" name. I have one other "Velourette" and it also has a Chamois like finish. I really like the Ribbon and Bow design. This is the second hat from my recent seven hat find. Open Crown Natural Light
  21. Oberbayerische Hutfabrik gmbH. Miesbach "Edelweiss-Hut" "Chamois", 58 cm, 1955. The Chamois Felt is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and easily dry creases. This is the first of a seven hat find. Open Crown Natural Light
  22. Rockel Velour "Superior", 55 cm possible late 1930s early 1940s. This fantastic Velour belongs to Matt on the FL. Open Crown
  23. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Elastic" possibly 1930s later 1920s. Belongs to Matt on the FL.
  24. Carl Weyrich Wien possibly mid 1890s - early 1900s. "Emperor Francis Joseph I of Austria - A Personal Bowler Hat, Carl Weyrich III. Fasangasse 17 Wien, black wool felt, silk repp band and rim trimmed with silk repp band, leather sweat band, silk lining, on the inside manufacturer’s mark "Carl Weyrich III. Fasangasse 17 Wien" with imperial double eagle and the emperor’s gold-embossed initials "FJI.", 31.5 x 26 cm, c. 1900, (Lu) Personal bowler hat of the emperor, worn in civil dress. There are several photos of the emperor showing him with this hat model. Especially well-known is th
  25. Stetson Excellent "Stratoliner", 58cm, probably later 1950s. Made by Mayser in Germany under license. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  26. Gärner Hüte Wien "Record" Manufactured by J. Heinr. Ita Wien, 59cm, Real Fur Felt probably 1930s or 1940s. I assume Gärner Hüte Wien is the same as Gärner Wien who also made their own hats. I have an earlier Gärner Wien Wool Stiff Felt. The paper label has a "U.F." which doesn't point to J. Heinr. Ita Wien so could be a Gärner Hüte Wien label. I couldn't find any company that matches those initials. The "F" could be Fabrik (Factory) but no guess yet regarding the "U". I really like form of this one and also the ribbon with + bow design.
