S. J. Fraenkel Wien

Recommended Posts

New old stock Fraenkel (Wien). I am thinking this one is late 60s - 70s. Very nice dark olive that doesn't really come through in the picture. Fraenkel which started back in the 1800s merged with Brüder Böhm Hüte in the late 50s. Brüder Böhm Hüte was one of the 3 Nový Jičín (originally Neutitschein) hat companies along with Hückel and Peschel.

Hüte aus Ebreichsdorf

 

Article in German about the hat factory in Ebreichsdorf, Austria. Fraenkel and BRÜDER BÖHM were produced at the factory which shut down in 1971. Interesting mention of a price war with TONAK being one of the causes.

Ebreichsdorfer Heimatmuseum has a permanent Hat making exhibition. S. & J. Fraenkel A.-G. factory was located in Ebreichsdorfer. The following link has a great set of early 20th century photos of the factory (scroll to the bottom and view in full screen mode).

HEIMATMUSEUM EBREICHSDORF (Austria)

 

Ebreichdorf was the location of S. & J. Fraenkel Wien Hutfabrik.

Here are photos of the museum Hat exhibit. Looks like they have some valuable information on the old Wet Brushed Velour processes at S. & J. Fraenkel Wien. Another place I need to visit.

S. J. Frankel Wien "Sirius 1/2 (Et.) Etui", 57cm, date stamped 01/06/1959. The felt is a dark navy blue with a smooth finish. The overall workmanship is fantastic and I really like the form plus mid ribbon width. Also fits fine even though 57cm and in excellent condition. The color should look better in natural light.

From Gustav Menschel last factory director of S. & J. Fraenkel Wien, Ebreichsdorfer (Austria) Filzhutfabrik. "½ Etui(Et.) Is an indication of Stump weight, about 120grams."
