Carl Kellner Hamburg

Recommended Posts

Carl Kellner Hamburg, 58cm, probably 1930s or older. I believe this hat could have been made by J. Hückel´s Söhne (modified? see below) based on what is left of the paper label. This is a very stiff heavy weight felt (nothing to do with quality) which probably has to do with the 'Derby' model name (stiffer soft felt hat). The crown tip patch is missing but the triangle shape is similar to the Carl Kellner Hamburg logo. Some minor felt issues that are made more apparent by the lighter felt color.

Appears this hat was modified because of the felt strip stitched to the crown about one inch above the brim line was added after paper label. If so the ribbon might not be original.
