Ateha Top Hat (1950)


This great Topper belongs to le.gentleman. New old stock find.


"This was a new old stock top hat from the approx. 1950 - made be Ateha.

It's a very nice hat indeed!

I got it from a good friend who does not live closeby. So, without a confirmateur I had to take my best fitting hat and copy the shape on a piece of paper. Once the hat arrived, it looked perfect, however due to some pressure points I got a headache after a few minutes. So I went to Hutatelier Beermann and Diter Beermann ironed the top hat into the shape of my hat - so now it fits perfectly."

Probably some type of clerical hat (size 57.5cm). Made by Hugo Carls Seidenhutfabrik Altenburg (H.C. & Co.) which was part of  Altenburger Hutfabrik Aktiengesellschaft (ATEHA) and the store that sold it was A. Spanke of Münster. It could have been custom made (modified?) and has elements of a Top Hat and Bowler. The silk finish, liner, rope and sweatband (hand stitched) are of very high quality. The under brim is fabric lined but not sure of the material. I am thinking 1920s. It came with the original box and is in near mint condition.
