habigman Posted May 24, 2017 Report Share Posted May 24, 2017 Hch. Klipper Offenbach a. M. "Extra Quality", measures 58.5cm, Crown 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 inches, 156 grams, Wool or Wool Blend, no paper label, Owner dated 1905. This Melone has a really interesting Form and Brim work with a 1 3/4 inch Ribbon / Band. I will take a photo wearing it so you can see the overall effect. Unfortunately there is some damage to the front of the ribbon but it's 100+ years old. I think the seller's (belonged to great grandfather) dating is accurate. Worn in Natural Light This fantastic Melone belonged to Heinrich Moog (1879-1957) of Gedern, Germany. Photos courtesy of Elke Leber Great Grand Daughter.
