  3. 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.

  5. Sorry for all the posts. Most of the hats are from the last year or so (also some from the past).
     
  6. Cool. Great research Justin, you make this Historian proud of you.

  12. Wowza Steve! This has been quite the journey. Hard to pick favorites, I'm drawn to the beautiful velours. But those stiff felts... Thanks for the effort you put into this series. I'm into my second cup of coffee/schnapps...

  13. Justin, Thanks! Thank you for your great additions (also for reviving it) to this thread.

    Bob, Thanks! I have neglected this great thread so had a backlog. :)

    Mike, Thank you! Most of my older hats are posted on this thread. Unfortunately there are many missing photos that others have posted. Mostly due to the Photobucket curse.

    steur One Too Many

    Never be sorry for posting hats, Steve; we love them as much as you do (but are less adept at finding them). Great looking hats, all of them.

    steur One Too Many

    That is really something else. Fantastic! Size 55 is too small even for me; pity...

  19. Stefan, Thanks! You have done a fantastic job of finding great European vintage / antique hats. Please keep them coming!

    Stefan, It's probably more like 54cm so really tiny. This is the only branded BGH branded hat I have come across. I might have some others but no company mark.

    And so I come home after a week of vacation in Tuscany and I find a parade of such sumptuous hats that I will use all morning on Sunday to watch them.
    It is certainly an unexpected pleasure to see so many, wonderful hats gathered in a magnificent procession.
    I have not inserted, in the quotes, the bowlers that are not my daily bread, but only for a matter of space. They have an indescribable charm! I have let out from selection those in straw because it is not the right season :rolleyes:
    What to add more? Except that some are to "steal".
    Bravo Steve! And my words are still little for your research :)
