  1. Well, it only took me five years to really examine this post! Thank you! I found several entires for my great-grandfather, Sigmund Lichtanthal and his sone, Paul. It is ingteresting that there no ad for the company, Lital, considering Sigmund (also called Joachim) was a committee member. I also found a listing for another company at the address of the Lital compnay (Mariahilferstrasse 88a) so now I need to research that!!
  2. It takes me a long time, but eventuallyI get back to work! I finally looked inside the hat per your request. There is no paper label, or any thing else for thatg matter, under the leather band inside the hat. What does that mean? For some reason I was unable to upload a pictire. Even though I compressed them it still says its too big.
  3. I have just resumed researching my great-grandfather's hat company, Lital, in Vienna. I will look into the info on the sweatband ASAP. What other kind of information would be of interest to this group? I have examples of hatboxdes as well as my great-grandfather's awards and patents for various hatboxes. I also have his "Arbeitsbuch" which lists his places of apprenticeship and work in Budapest and Vienna (1892-1899)
  4. Here is a picture of the the Lital shop in Vienna, Austria. My grandfather is the gentleman on right hand side. The picture appears to be blurry. I need to resize it and will repost if someone would like to see it better.
  5. Here are pictures of a Lital hat and a print ad for the company. This was my great-grandfather's company. They owned a hat factory and four stores until the business was taken by the Nazis in 1938. I would appreciate any information people may have about Lital.
