  1. Dr. Walter F. Schubert who wrote the introductory text was a well known expert on German Graphic Arts. SCHUBERT, DR. WALTER F. Die Deutsche Werbe-Graphik, 1927, Berlin https://www.abebooks.com/book-search/author/schubert-dr-walter-f/first-edition/

  3. Lembert "Uran" possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Mark on the FL.
  4. Franz Gober München "Bayerland" "Garmisch", 60cm possibly late 1950s. This hat belongs to Mark on the FL.
  5. Echter Borsalino "mLodola" "Nobelsca", French Point 4 1/2, possible late 1920s. This amazing hat belongs to Garrett on the FL.
  6. Wegener "Extra", 58 cm, possibly later 1940s early 1950s. I tend to think this one is older because of components. The felt is great and easily dry creases. There are some issues due to wear but nothing too bad. Open Crown Natural Light
  7. Hückel Weilheim "Chamois", 58 cm, possibly mid to later 1950s. Another gray Hückel Weilheim "Chamois" with a small Blue Jay feather so apparently they came with the hats. Natural Light
  8. J. Hückel´s Söhne, Display Cards, 10 cm x 4 cm, possibly mid to later 1920s. Most likely the cards were placed on or near the hats. Click On Photos to Enlarge.
  9. Mayser "Stella Steif Federlicht / Stiff Feather Light" made for Huthase / Hat Hare, 58cm, 155 grams, possible 1930s. I was lucky because I noticed there was a lot of padding behind the sweatband. Also figured it was made by a high quality company which also turned out to be correct. This is a really fantastic Fur Felt (Haar.filz) Stiff Felt made by Mayser Ulm. I really like the dimensions and form. The sweatband leather is especially nice and the fit is perfect. Huthase had stores in Dresden, Chemnitz, and Leipzig. Natural Light
  10. J. Heinr. JTA Wien K. u. K. Hof Hutfabrikant, Advert Display, early 1900s. Not mine but a great piece from a finished auction. Click Photo to Enlarge!
  11. L. F. Rousselett Elite, Advert Stand, 10 cm x 8 cm, possibly 1920s. L. F. Rousselet was located in Friedrichsdorf, Germany which is nearby Bad Homburg. L. F. Rousselet was sold in 1934 and became Resolut Homburger Hutfabrik.
  12. Fraenkel Wien, Celluloid Advert Card by Prager & Lojda Berlin S.W., 9 cm x 6 cm, possibly 1920s. . Prager & Lojda Berlin S.W. http://www.sampor.de/index.php?id=2672
  13. P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Zefir" made for Willoughby Hatter, 60cm, appears to be a mix of pre and post WWII. Possibly Willoughby Hatter sent old stock back to P. & C. Habig Wien to be modified for 1960s tastes. It came with a description of Ventilo (see above post). Daniele from the FL found this hat. A 1930s style paper label.
  14. VENTILO 1/2 (Sample No. 282.028) In addition to protection against the sun, this hat also provides plenty of ventilation - the total area of the ventilation openings is approximately 2.92 square cm. The arrangement of these two ventilations will make the sweat significantly reduced. Thanks to Daniele for this information.
  15. L. B. Hats "Prima Original", Wool, possibly late 1930s early 1940s. The paper label is missing and there are no company marks. The hat came from a Czech source so I am fairly certain the maker was from Czechoslovakia regardless of the English names. The Wool Felt easily dry creases and has a very nice finish. The Crown is just over 6 inches Open but not sure that comes across in the photos. I really enjoy finding these old European Wool Soft and Stiff Felt Hats. I think this one is fantastic. Open Crown
