  3. I found Franz Gulder in my Austrian Hat Industry Guide (1926) page 18. Wwe. = Widow https://germanaustrianhats.invisionzone.com/topic/217-austrian-hat-industry-guide-1926/ The building is still intact.

  4. Yesterday
  5. C. W. Borchert Hat Box, early 1900s. This belongs to Steve on the FL. "It has the company's original address at Friedrich Strasse pre WWII. After WWII, Borchert moved to Kurfüstendamm. The G.m.b.H initials (the German equivalent of a limited liability company) are also missing on this hat box, which lead me to believe this is very early 1900s."
  6. Last week
  7. Anton Peschel Neutitschein, 56 cm possibly late 1930s early 1940s. There is a "P" on the paper label but it's very similar in construction to the Anton Peschel Neutitschein, Peschel "Kristall" from the same find. The darker Brown Close Cropped Velour is really fantastic easily dry creases and is in very good condition. Open Crown Natural Light
  8. Earlier
  9. P. & C. Habig Wien "Grand Prix Paris", 57 cm, 110 grams, late 1890s - 1900. The Felt is very thin and light weight with a great smooth finish. The black liner with gold embossing is striking. The textured sweatband is also very light weight with the "Patent Ventilator" holes. There was a newspaper (from September 4, 1903) spacer behind the rear of the sweatband. I am thinking this was able made for the Paris 1900 World Exposition or was made the year after P. & C. Habig Wien winning the "Grand Prix" at the Paris 1900 World Exposition. I was told by the seller that this Melone belon
  10. Aurel Huber "Chamois". 57 cm, 100 grams, possibly 1950s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. According to Stefan the hat originally had a liner and that the Chamois is remarkable.
  11. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Lutra", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 7th hat from my recent 9 hat find. This is my first JHS "Lutra" which means European Otter so possibly similar marketing to "Seal Velour". The Felt is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. It's a Trachten style Soft Felt which is also the case for my early Tonak Plant Hückel "Lutra". The Folkish Band is really interesting / unique. This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown
  12. P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität", 56 cm, Production year 1959. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  13. Bronnold "Edel - Echt Velour, Sekunda" possibly mid 1950s. The Velour easily dry creases and is of medium weight. The bow is slightly offset so that adds a bit of uniqueness. Also a wide Brim with a lower Crown profile. Open Crown Natural Light
  14. Nobleza "Silka". 56cm possibly late 1950s early 1960s. Nobleza is a W. & G. Schuchard trademark.
  15. Echter Nobleza Velour, 58 cm, possibly mid to later 1950s. No paper label but W. & G. Schuchard trademark. The Velour is really fantastic (color + hand) and is similar to Seal Velour finish wise. I had a very hard time trying to photograph this hat. Open Crown Natural Light
  16. W. & G. Schuchard, Giessen, Lahn Wholesaler, Distributor, Importer
  17. Resolut Homburger Hutfabrik "Savoy", 56cm possibly later 1950s.
  18. Weston, 56cm possibly mid to later 1950s. No company mark but probably made for a distributor. I couldn't find anything on the "Weston" trademark which is a play on Stetson. The felt is light in weight and pliable.
  19. P. & C. Habig Wien "Export Qualität", 59cm, production year 1953. The felt is heavy in weight but still easily hand creases. The sweatband is really fantastic with very nice P. & C. Habig Wien stamping. As usually the overall quality and form are of the highest order. This hat was made for the famous A. Breiter München hat store (still in business today). Open Crown Natural Light
  20. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 6th hat (and 2nd "Jota" "Seal Velour") from my recent 9 hat find. The Velour is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. The sweatband is textured and is very soft. The tip patch is in mint condition and the hat appears to have been seldom worn. Luckily this hat fits me even though it's marked 56 cm. This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown (Better Photos of the Velour)
  21. Brüder Böhm "Böhm Cromwell", FP 5 1/2, possibly mid to latter 1930s. This hat belongs to Wayne on the FL. Wayne wearing the hat.
  22. Echter Borsalino "Qualità Superiore" "Caffè" "--" "Dragosti", FP 5, possibly late 1930s. This is the 5th hat of a 9 hat find and the 2nd "Dragosti" in "Caffè". The smooth coffee colored Felt is of a medium weight and easily dry creases. Medium width Ribbon with a sporty Bow design. This hat was most likely sold in Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Second Paper Label from the first Echter Borsalino "Qualità Superiore" "Caffè" "--" "Dragosti". Paper Labels are exactly the same. Open Crown
  23. Anton Peschel Neutitschein, Peschel "Kristall", 57 cm possibly late 1930s early 1940s. This is the 4th hat from a 9 hat find. I believe this is the only Smooth Finish APN Hat I have encountered. It fits more like a 58 cm so happy about that. The Medium Gray Felt is of a lighter weight and easy dry creases. The Form and Dimensions are similar to Echter Borsalinos. Mid Ribbon with an interesting Bow design. Open Crown Natural Light
  24. Echter Borsalino "Qualità Superiore" "Caffè" "--" "Dragosti", FP 5, possibly late 1930s. The smooth coffee colored Felt is of a medium weight and easily dry creases. Medium width Ribbon with a sporty Bow design. The condition is excellent and it still has the Eulan paper tag. This hat was most likely sold in Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Eulan Tag Open Crown
  25. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Jota" "Seal Velour", 56 cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the 2nd hat from my recent 9 hat find. The Velour is really fantastic (color, finish, hand) and very pliable. The sweatband is textured and is very soft. The tip patch is in mint condition and the hat appears to have been seldom worn. This hat was sold by Julius Reiter Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown
  26. Echter Borsalino "Qualità Superiore" "Amiata" "C. Nero" "Gorasti", Size Tag Missing / measures 58cm, possibly late 1930s. This is the first hat of a 9 hat find that took 2 1/2 months to arrive from Germany. The Smooth Finish Felt is of a lighter weight and easily dry creases. There is non elastic Wind Cord which is the type you find in this time period and prior. The gray sweatband has a specialty finish I do not believe I have encountered before. This hat was most likely sold in Eger / Cheb Czechoslovakia (prior to WWI Austria Hungary). Open Crown
  27. J. Hückel´s Söhne "Sigma" "Seal Velour", 57 cm possibly early to mid 1930s and made for the Japanese market. A thank you to Wayne of the FL saving the auction photos.
  28. Echter Borsilino "Qualità Superiore", French Point 5 1/2, possibly late 1930s early 1940s. Unfortunately the Borsalino Paper Label is missing but the separate Size Stamp is present. The Felt Finish is similar to Velour Soleil so shows a high amount of gloss and is very pliable so easily dry creases. There is a mix of colors (you can see better in the Open Crown photos) that from a distance looks Stone Gray like. The Form and Dimensions fit the time period and place. This is a great start to 2021. Paper Label missing but it has the separate Size stamp.
  29. Wegener "Seal", 55 cm possibly later 1950s. This belongs to Stefan on the FL.
