    Nice find, Panos. These VEB hats have been plentiful finds here in the vintage shops last year. Bit of a hit and miss affair: some very good, others not so much.

    You can just sense the feel of the velvet on those display stands, Steve. Wonderful finds.

    Wonderful flowery flows to that typography, Steve. Suggests a cross over from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. Could easily be 1920s, possibly even 1910s.

    We know though that a good font branding style stays longer than an era, so I may well be wrong.

    No matter what though, super finds Steve. Thanks for sharing.

    Steve, Thanks again! My dating guess is based on other items from this find.

    Wonderful additions all, Steve. Good that they are preserved and where better than in your collection?

    Stefan, Thank you for the initial tip. Turned out that he had more than he was showing on Ebay. He decided to sell everything German and Austrian.

    His collection of hat ephemera couldn't have ended up in a better collection, Steve. Congrats and thanks for sharing with us.

    Steve, I think the guy just gave up and sold me everything. :)
