Czech Hat Find, May 2016

Recommended Posts

This is my latest Czech find. There are 20 hats (Brüder Böhm, J.Hückel´s Söhne, TONAK, Janyška) and 4 hat holders (Anton Peschel Neutitschein, Brüder Böhm, Janyška). All of the hats are NOS open crown and range from the later 1930s to late 1950s. Including a couple rare Brüder Böhm Soft Felt Wool hats and a Brüder Böhm hat holder.

TONAK Nový Jičín "Standard" with Back Bow, size 58cm, NOS condition, probably late 1940s early 1950s (former JHS main factory). The crown is 6 inches open with a 2 1/2 inch swooping brim. This one is from my latest Czech find.

TONAK Nový Jičín "Lestand", size 58cm, NOS condition with mothing, probably later 1950s (former JHS main factory). The crown is 5 1/2 inches open with a 2 3/8 inch brim. The felt is stiff but can be hand formed with steam. I am sure this by design so could be color finish related. This one is from my latest Czech find.

Tonak "Jubilant", size 59cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 3/8 inches, NOS condition, 1959. Made for 160 Year Anniversary but 145 years of it was JHS. :) This hat has a really great form (looks late 1930s) for later hat. The felt is fantastic and easily dry creases. This one is from my latest Czech find.

Tonak "Iradon", size 58cm, Crown Open 5 inches, Brim 2 1/2 inches, NOS condition, late 1950s.  The Velour felt is very nice for this late period and easily dry creases.  Also has a overall pleasing form.  This one is from my latest Czech find.

Tonak "Lestand", 57cm, Crown Open 5 inches, Brim 2 3/8 inches, NOS condition, probably late 1950s. The felt is of high quality (smooth finish) and dry creases easily. I think it has a very nice overall form plus a stylish bow. This one is from my May 2016 Czech find.

Tonak "Efekt?", 60cm, Crown Open 5 inches, Brim 2 5/8 inches, NOS condition, late 1940s early 1950s. The felt is of high quality and easily takes a dry crease. Also a very nice overall form.

Interesting in this case Tonak choose 1869 and not 1799. The 1869 date was when JHS became a public company. This change might have been due to trademark issues.

Yet "150 let (years)" is based on 1799 to 1949. Also the Sweatband is made of a canvas like material.
