  2. 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.

  3. 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."

    318080-d76370450f8024331cdfbb434461e28a.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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.)

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. 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).

  11. 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).

  12. 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.

  15. 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).
