  1. St. Veit (Sankt Veit), 58 cm, Wool Felt, possibly early 1930s.  There isn't a company mark but the paper label has a Sheep with a St. Veit Banner. Sankt Veit an der Glan Schafrasse is a small town in the South East corner of Austria and I couldn't find any Felt Hat production in the town.  My guess is this is the source of the Wool used for the Felt.  The Stiff Felt Hat was sold by a shop (Ludovikus Hagens Wwe) in a small town (Lustenau, Voralberg) in the upper North West corner of Austria.  The Wool Felt has a nice finish and is in very good condition.  The Stiff Felt has great looking Silver Gray Liner with a sharp looking Bow design.

    Handwriting on the Sweatband which I will have to take a closer look at.

    Ludovikus Hagens Wwe (Lustenau, Voralberg, Elisabethstraße 7) was located in the front of this house.   Photo from 1908.

    Ludwig "Ludovikus" Hagen passed away in 1929.

    Ludwig "Ludovikus" Hagen wife 1. Sophie (Wwe, Widow) was owner of the shop when the Stiff Felt was sold.

  2. I made a reverse image of the "Echter Mayser" Celluloid Label and translated the German text to English.

    You Made The Right Choice With This Genuine Mayser.

    It is the best German brand hat, made from the finest materials.

    It preserves your personal touch and protects you from sun and rain.

    You will enjoy it for a long time if you entrust its care to a specialist shop.

  3. Mayser "Libelle", 58 cm, possibly later 1950s.  The Felt has a great color / finish and easily dry creases.  Also a really interesting Bow and Brim treatment.   This is my second "Libelle" so not a common Mark.

    Unique "Echter Mayser" Celluloid Label attached to the Sweatband.  I have never seen one of these before so a very pleasant surprise.

  4. Anton Pichler Graz, 58cm, possibly a rebuild or new hat from the later 1950s.  There is no paper label and the Sweatband is from probably a later 1920s J. Hückel´s Söhne "Standard".  The Reed covering on the Sweatband is a similar color to Felt so it's possible this was later rebuild of old J. Hückel´s Söhne "Standard" or the old J. Hückel´s Söhne "Standard" Sweatband was installed in a new hat.  The Sweatband also has a Ludwig Skrivanek Graz Hat Fashion House mark.  This hat belonged to the owner of the Collins Wien "Luxus Prima Smoking Hat".  The Seller said her Great Grandfather, the owner, was born in the early 1900s.  The greenish gray Felt is of a heaver weight but still easily dry creases.  It has a really nice minimalistic Bow design. This is definitely unique / head scratching find which makes it all the better in my mind. :)

  5. Collins Wien "Prima Smoking Hat", 58 cm, possibly late 1950s.  The black Felt has a nice Smooth Finish and is pliable so easily dry creases.  The under Brim is reinforced with binding material so a formal Camber form worn Brim Up.  The overall quality is high and the condition is excellent.  Definitely a unique find.

  6. Echter Rockel Velour, No Paper Label, measures ~ 58 cm, possibly late 1920s.  The the Gray Velour is very pliable with a great amount of gloss.  The Crown is ~ 6 inches Open with a ~ 2 1/2 inch Brim.  The black Bat Wing like Bow is really fantastic.

  7. Brüder Böhm "Böhms Ultima", 58 cm, late 1930s and made for the Norwegian Market.  I made a trade with Panos on the FL for this fantastic Velour.  The following are Panos's photos.

  8. Wegener "Luxor" "Manhattan", 58 cm, possibly very early 1960s very late 1950s.  I picked this up because it was NOS, an interesting model name and has major (over welt) brim flange. The felt has a great finish and color.  Also very pliable so easily dry creases.

    THE SALES AREA

    Mayser's hat factory has worked on the development of German hat production for 125 years. In this long period of time, a wealth of experience has been gained in material testing, in purchasing, in the use of raw materials and semi-finished products, the end result of which is the prerequisite for the production of a high-quality finished product. All innovations in technology were always applied immediately. All of this helped establish and consolidate the reputation of the Mayser hats. The striving of the present management of the work is all focused on the production of quality products. In this way it has succeeded in expanding the company's sales area to all cultural countries and in getting the Mayser name to be respected all over the world. The fact that only the most careful work and the very best quality can bring honor back to German industrial products across national borders has been taken into account by the Mayser company with purposeful will and the best of success. Compared to the competition from abroad, which was not damaged by the World War, this does not mean an easy struggle. But diligence, tenacity and unwavering adherence to the principle of workmanship, the guiding stars that the Mayser company has followed for more than a century, will also show it a happy path into the future.  (English Translation By ErWeSa (Wolfgang))
