Brüder Böhm, Hat Liner Print Plates, probably from the Nový Jičín (Neutitschein) factory.

I purchased a collection of old (probably 1930s and older) hat liner print plates (82 pieces) from the Czech Republic. They were found near Štramberk which is a short distance from Nový Jičín (Neutitschein) where Johann Hückel´s Söhne, Anton Peschel and Brüder Böhm were located.

I received a personal message from member BruederBoehm(Jonathan) the grandson of Victor Böhm owner and chief inventor at Brüder Böhm Wien, Neutitschein / Novy Jicin.  Jonathan kindly offered to let me post some photos of his fantastic / amazing BB collection.  My sincere thanks to Jonathan!

Could be the same Melone he is wearing in this photo from a 1920s "The American Hatter" article.

Henry Böhm's (Victor's son) compiled a booklet of the history of BB advertisements that appeared in the United States -- primarily in trade journals from the first half of the 20th century.  Jonathan sent me a couple of the more interesting pages, including some of the BB logos.

Brüder Böhm Neutitschein Die Stamps, probably 1920s. I received another batch (42) of Die Stamps from the Czech Republic about 2 weeks ago but most are not hat company related (still amazing though). These BB Die Stamps are small so might have been used for paper labels.

Brüder Böhm Factory in Vienna from the late 1940s early 1950s. I received these rare photos from Jonathan the grandson of Victor Böhm owner and chief inventor at Brüder Böhm Wien, Neutitschein / Novy Jicin. Here is a brief overview by Jonathan followed by the photos + his comments.

 

"The address of the Brüder Böhm factory in Vienna was Schottenfeldgasse 30, in Vienna's 7th district (or VII. Bezirk, called Neubau). Its location on Schottenfeldgasse was the block bounded by Seidengasse, Zieglergasse, and Lindengasse. The plant was in operation from its construction in 1862 to the 1960s. It was demolished in the 1970s, and there is now an apartment complex on the site."

 

"Three exterior views of the factory. The structure shown in the third photo is clearly the central building visible in the older prints of the factory."

Ústřední Sociální Pojišťovny (Central Social Insurance Company) Identity Card (1926 - 1930).  This man (Franz Freissler) was employed by Brüder Böhm Hutfabriken (Hat Factories).  Notice Brüder Böhm still uses Neu-Titschein (German) and not Nový Jičín (Czech) post WWI Slavication. Also the passbook documentation is in both Czech and German.  I received this a short while ago.

Brüder Böhm "Luxor", 59cm, Wool, NOS condition, with Böhm Hat Holder and Paper Size Tag, probably late 1930s. Old Brüder Böhm Soft Felts are very rare finds. This is from my latest Czech find.

I think this might be a cloth based sweatband. The separation doesn't appear to be from stretching.

Brüder Böhm "Lido", 58cm, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 inches, very light weight 100g / 3.5oz, NOS condition with mothing, original Paper Size Tag, probably late 1930s. The felt finish is very smooth with a white (a slight hint of green) granite rock effect. It's on the stiffer side but will hand crease. There is a Hare on the logo so it could be fur felt but not really sure because of the processing. A very unique hat but probably not in its time and place. :) This is from my May 2016 Czech find.

Brüder Böhm Wien "Ultra", 58cm probably 1930s maybe late 1920s. This is a fantastic Stiff Felt that is in great condition but on the heavy side at 189 grams. Still has the original size stamp at the rear of the sweatband. A Thank You to Manfred for the assist!

Brüder Böhm, 58cm Point 5 1/2, Crown Open 5 1/2 inches, Brim 2 1/4 inches probably 1930s. Fantastic Hot Wet Brushed Black Velour - Soleil that is very pliable and absorbs all light. The company paper label with model, form and color information is missing. I would like to thank Celia from the FL for letting me know about this hat which she found on French Ebay. This is a rare find.
