  4. F.W.S. advertisement (in a 1954 German Hat Exhibition booklet I have photo archived) that mentions the Wilke mark. Two examples. https://germanaustrianhats.invisionzone.com/topic/16-c-g-wilke-hutfabrik-guben/?do=findComment&comment=657 https://germanaustrianhats.invisionzone.com/topic/16-c-g-wilke-hutfabrik-guben/?do=findComment&comment=2858
  5. Wilhelm Ispert Köln distributed some of the mystery WW2 era or older Wool hats with the following paper label types. My guess is the Hat Manufacturer was one (or more than one) of the major Wool Hat Factories in Guben, Germany. WISKO = Wilhelm Ispert Köln
  6. Wilhelm Ispert Köln acquired the Möckel mark back in the 1930s. PH. Möckel went out of business in 1931 because of the World depression. Here is a Wilhelm Ispert Köln advertisement from December 1936 that mentions the Möckel mark. (From: Deutsche Hutmacher-Zeitung, December 15, 1936)
  7. WISKO "Rossach Kosmos 1", 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 1 7/8 inches probably late 1930s. I think this Fur Felt or could be Wool / Fur blend. Open Crown
  8. Franz Gober München Advertisement (December, 1936) (From: Deutsche Hutmacher-Zeitung, December 15, 1936)
  9. Franz Gober München "Bayerland", missing paper label, possibly mid to later 1930s.
  10. C. G. Wilke, possibly late 1950s. Belongs to Stefan on the FL.

  13. Hut Brömme Nürnberg 75th Anniversary (1953) "Rex", 58cm. There isn't a company mark but Wegener used the "Rex" model / form type. Natural Light
  14. Hut Brömme Nürnberg 75th Anniversary (1953), 58.5 cm, mid 1950s. Highly possible this was made by Hückel Weilheim. Really fantastic Chamois Felt that has a very soft hand and easily dry creases. Also a very interesting thin ribbon bow design. Open Crown Natural Light
  15. Franz Gulder Wien Silk Top Hat possibly early 1900s. Belongs to Steve on the FL.
  16. 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.

  17. 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."
  18. 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
  19. 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 belonged to a banker from Greiz which is just south of Graz where the Melone was sold (Carl Singewald). This is one of my best Stiff Felt finds. Patent Ventilator Paper Label with Handwritten Entries, Stitched in Liner Newspaper Spacer, Berliner Börsen-Zeitung, Friday, the 4th. September 1903. (The seller told me that the Melone belonged to a Banker in Greiz, Germany so that explains the use of the Berliner Börsen-Zeitung Financial Newspaper as a spacer.) P. & C. Habig Wien - Berlin Catalog, possibly mid 1890s to early 1900s. Similar Stiff Felt Forms, Also P. & C. Habig Wien Crest with "Patent Ventilator" Natural Light (Very Similar Hat to No. 16 above)
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität", 56 cm, Production year 1959. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL.
  23. 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
  24. Nobleza "Silka". 56cm possibly late 1950s early 1960s. Nobleza is a W. & G. Schuchard trademark.
  25. 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
