Lital - Hat Company in Vienna


Recommended Posts

I am researching my grandfather's hat company, Lital, active in Vienna in the early 1900s. From what I know there was a factory and at least 4 stores, one of which was located at VII Mariahilferstrasse 88a. I have looked through several of the resources on this forum and strangely see almost no mention of this company. The exception is the 1926 Austrian Hat Industry guide which lists both my grandfather and his father.


I would be grateful for any information on this company.


I do have some things (by photo and scans)  to offer if the members are interested. A few items are: actual Lital hat (I won it on eBay!!), several hat boxes, patents for a triangular hat box, patent for special treatment for fur, photo of the store (early 1930 maybe), advertisement for Lital hats from the 30s.
