    Ah, so you got that one. :) Never saw one before. Odd that it says qualité instead of qualitá. French maybe?

    Or so you hope. I've been waiting for three days now for a package that was sent from within the country. A package I sent to Denmark has already arrived!

    Did you see this hat also Stefan @steur ? It's a "Danubius" do you know this brand? Screenshot_20210129-152121_Marktplaats.jpg

    Here is the Galimberti. Not the best photo's, but the hat is wonderful. Very mallable felt en very light weighted. I'm very pleased with it. 20210130_172746.jpg 20210130_172756.jpg

    Marcel, the Galimberti could be an Italian hat. Much more would be understood from photos you do well to the whole and to the details. I still have some doubts about some grammatical errors in the trademark, however some good photos would help:rolleyes:

    I did see it and considered it, but too "trachten" for me.

    Looks nice, but a lot less grey than in the auction pics.

    Here are some pics in daylight. Then the colour is actually more grey or is it taupe?? There no label behind the sweatband unfortunally. 20210131_114431.jpg 20210131_114446.jpg 20210131_114350.jpg 20210131_114359.jpg 20210131_114559.jpg 20210131_114516.jpg 20210131_114523.jpg 20210131_114535.jpg

    Marcel, the hat bears an Italian brand, but it seems to have been made by someone who has emigrated or used an Italian surname to feel more chic. I tell you this, even at first glance I thought it was a hat made in Monza, because there are two obvious errors in the Italian language. One is in the mark under the crown where it says "marca di fabbrica" (in Italian language it is "marchio di fabbrica") and another is on the sweatband where the word quality is in French (qualité).
    That said, there is no doubt that the hat is cute and a rarity

    I really don't know. It's possible. But the quality of the felt is good, and the fit also. So for me it was a good buy.

    Thank you very much for the information Daniele... Do you read the brandname as "Galimberti"?

    The surname Galimberti is decidedly Lombard (Lombardia, so Monza), with a possible lineage in the province of Reggio Emilia. In Italy there are 2500 families who bear his surname spread in 611 municipalities. Galimberti derives from the Germanic name Warinbert with the meaning of "illustrious defender".
