Franz Richter & Söhne, Dresden,"Uri" "Tell", Wool possibly 1930s. This hat belongs to Stefan on the FL. My guess is it was made by one of the German Hat Factories (located in what became East Germany post WWII) that produced Wool Soft and Stiff Felt hats up to WWII. It could have also been made by FRS from sourced Wool stumps.

Franz Richter & Söhne, Dresden,"Küssnacht" "Tell", 54cm, Wool possibly 1930s. My guess is it was made by one of the German Hat Factories (located in what became East Germany post WWII) that produced Wool Soft and Stiff Felt hats up to WWII. It could have also been made by FRS from sourced Wool stumps. This hat belongs to Matt on the FL. Here is Matt's explanation of "Küssnacht" "Tell".

 

"The overprint on the sweatband shows a top hat and says: "Küßnacht" and under it probably "Tell", so that I assume from a Swiss salesman.

In Küssnacht, the legend of William Tell, the Swiss national hero, has its localization..."
