Heinrich Balke, Bremen


Recommended Posts

H.B. "Prima Weser Hut", 59cm, 172 grams, probably 1920s (hard to date could be earlier or later). Believe it or not this Wool Stiff Felt has a mirror inset into the liner logo! The liner logo has the initials H.B. and the paper label has the initials H.B.B. which is Heinrich Balke Bremen who was a hat whole seller. Weser is a river that flows into Bremen and "Weser Hut" is trademarked so will see if I can find anything.

Heinrich Balke Bremen "Prima Weser Hut", 58 cm, Crown Open 6 inches, Brim 3 inches, possibly late 1920s.  This a Wool Soft Felt Hat with Back Bow and luckily the Crown Tip Patch is still present.  I really like finding old Wool Soft Felts and I waited a long time for this one to arrive because of shipping issues.
