P. & C. Habig Wien "Special Qualität", 58 cm, 147 grams, possibly early to mid 1920s. This is an older one based on the Paper Label type and the use of city name Cassel vs. Kassel. In 1926 the city name was officially changed to Kassel.** The Black Felt has a superb finish / hand. The Form is impressive with a taller Crown and less side tapper. The component quality and workmanship are excellent which is always the case with P. & C. Habig Wien. The overall condition is very good especially for its age.

The Worker's "Arb." surname appears to be "Makovsky". I will have to see if I can find something about him.

52163019727_c4581fcf3a_h.jpg


Starting in 1925 there is an Anton Makovsky listed as "Hutmacher / Hat Maker, XVI/1 Koppstr. 64" in "Adolph Lehmann's general housing indicator: along with trade and business address book for d. k.k. Imperial capital and royal seat of Vienna and surroundings. 1925"

Emil Seeling Neudamm, Wholeseller. I purchased the Hat** almost 3 years ago but I wasn't able to make the connection at that time which has happened before. Neudamm was part of Germany up to 1945 / the end of WWII when it became part of Poland and was renamed Dębno. Neudamm / Dębno is a fairly short distance from Guben, Germany which was the largest Hat and Felt production center in Germany up to WWII. Based on the Hat's Paper Label the Factory that made it was probably Berlin Gubener Hutfabrik / Factory so it makes sense that a wholesaler would be in the same general area.

I also found the Brand / Mark in "Warenzeichenblatt / Trademark Sheet, Volume 32 , 1925, Publisher Wila-Verlag für Wirtschaftswerbung". This publication is also a very important find regarding pre WWII German Brand / Mark search.

"Dogma" "Striegau", Wool, 57 cm, possibly 1930s maybe later 1920s and most likely made by Berlin - Gubener Hutfabrik. This is based on the Paper Label type and that "Striegau" was located in Germany but after WWII Strzegom, Poland. The Hat was sold by Hut Köhl Kehl am Rhein** which is directly across the Rhein from Stroudsburg. The Wool felt is very pliable with high gloss. The overall condition is very good and the Crown Tip Patch is still in place. The "Dogma" brand / mark is very unique. I enjoy finding these old German Wool Soft Felt Hats and this one is a great example.

German Hat Maker's Seal, "J. W." initials with a Top Hat and Lions possibly mid to late 19th Century. Not sure who the Hat Maker** is but the seller thought it could a Hat Maker from Bavaria/Allgäu area.

** I found a Hat Maker "Ludwig Weigt" from Deustch Kralupp (today Karlovarsky kraj northwest region of Czechia / Czech Republic) in a 1879 trade listing but no way to verify this is the same "L. W." on the Seal.

P.T. Pleni Titulo / Praemisso Titulo**

We have the honor of presenting you with our new price offer for the spring and summer season
of 1908 and ask that you kindly review it before placing your estimated orders, to which we shall be best devoted.

As always, so this time too, we have taken into account a particularly rich selection in the
new and latest shapes, both in men's and women's hats, but on the other hand we have also copied
older, always sought-after and proven styles, so we don't think we're saying too much when we declare
that each Taste is taken into account, which is why a selection should not be difficult.

At the same time, we would like to take the liberty of thanking our valued customers for the
trust they placed in abundance in the past season

yours sincerely

Josef Pichler & Söhne,
k. u. k. Hof-Hutfabrik, Graz.

Highly Important Note! Advice!

Since it happens every year on public holidays such as Easter, Pentecost, etc., that we are unable to advertise all wishes due to the many orders we received last week and therefore have to leave a good part unfulfilled, we address our P. T. /Dear Customers

Urgent Please,

Such orders should be placed as early as possible, possibly with a specified later delivery date, since we can only
guarantee punctual execution if this is the case.

(Right Side)

1. Shipping is generally only against cash on delivery or prepayment by postal order
(for clearing members Account No. 48.237 Vienna, Account No. 7.475 Budapest),
whereby, in order to avoid shipping delays, we do not want to forget to pay the amount due for the packaging within 50 hours, see point 3. — Pens, clasps and such small things, for which the money is usually sent in advance, we dispatch unstamped by driving mail if the postage is not paid. — Consignments as samples of no value or in the form of simple letters are only made on special orders and are therefore always at the risk of the addressee. In other countries, with the exception of the German Reich, the goods can only be shipped against advance payment and such P.T. customers want to instruct the amount for the postage in addition to the packaging costs, since carriage paid is usually compulsory.

2. Complaints will only be considered within 10 days of receipt of the order. Goods returned to us that are
not appropriate, faultless, franked and without cash on delivery will be exchanged or the amount paid will be refunded. The only exceptions to this are goods that have been manufactured according to special regulations.

3. The packaging best, solid wooden crate and is calculated for this by order and waybill in 50 hours.

4. Selected broadcasts cannot be arranged. — All illustrations are photographically true to nature, giving every P. T. customer an accurate picture of the appearance of the various forms.

5. Sample Shipments. Associations, corporations, forest and domain administrations, etc., which intend to place larger orders of hats of the same shape and color, have sample hats available and are only asked to indicate colors and shapes according to this price list . If loden hats should match the suit as closely as possible, a larger sample of the fabric in question must be sent in.

6. Price reductions for orders of at least K 30.- 2%, of more than K 60.- 2% and free packaging. If a larger number of hats of the same shape and color are delivered, separate prices are quoted.

7. Hat repairs are well done at the price of K 2-4.

8. Unstamped letters will not be accepted.

9. Quite clear name signature is requested to avoid unpleasant situations and complaints for all correspondence.

10. All prices are from Graz and in the case of hats with flower arrangements, unless otherwise stated, always without feather ornaments.

Advice: Because of the large circulation, it is easy for more than one price sheet to arrive at one address, so we ask that you kindly pass on the copies you have received to friends and acquaintances. Changes of domicile and title are most politely requested in order to correct the address lists.

**Pleno Titulo ( Latin for example "addressed with the respective full title") or more frequently Praemisso Titulo (with the requirement of the title), a polite phrase used especially in Austria to address an indefinite number of people whose titles cannot be listed individually ("pt audience ", "pt house parties")

Put on a well-fitting hat and look in the mirror at how low it sits on your head. If you now measure at this point using a piece of paper or a centimeter tape, the result is the correct head measurement and, if you follow these instructions closely, it is completely impossible for a soft hat not to fit.

Take a well-fitting stiff hat and use a centimeter tape or paper strip to measure the length from a to b and the width from c to d of the inner hat space, as shown in the drawing below, at the point where the forehead leather meets the felt is sewn on, very precisely. If you don't have a stiff hat at hand, you can also measure a well-fitting soft hat, but you have to take into account that especially when measuring the width from c to d the shape of the oval has to match the head , is not warped.

To be on the safe side, you also want to specify the round measurement for stiff hats as for soft hats.

Export Department for Genuine Styrian Loden Fabrics and Clothing Items
of the company Josef Pichler & Söhne K. u. K. Hof-Hutfabrik in Graz.

Our naturally waterproof, genuine Styrian loden fabrics for hunting, tourist and fatigue suits are so popular due to their unsurpassed quality that it is actually superfluous to say a lot more about them. Regardless, we don't want to miss out on those "P.T." Customers who have not yet had the opportunity to convince themselves of the practicality and countless advantages of these fabrics are cordially invited to try them, as we are confident that they will keep coming back to this superior quality. In particular, we ask you not to be fooled by cheaper imitation goods, which of course require a somewhat smaller edition at the moment, but will only be all the more expensive later on, because such a suit cannot withstand half the hardships that genuine Styrian loden can withstand.

Sports Suit. Travel or Street Suit. Tourist Suit. Hunting Suit

In order to give P. T. customers a small picture of how diverse our loden fabrics can be used, we are providing four illustrations of suits, all of which were made from these fabrics. These are a sports suit and a hunting suit, as well as a tourist suit and a travel or street suit. We hope that this will also be of service to some customers, as frequent inquiries show that in some areas the master tailors are in the dark
about how a Sports, hunting or tourist suit should look like this. Before you buy fabrics, ask for our large sample card of genuine Styrian, weatherproof loden fabrics, you will receive the same for free!
Make an attempt, which you will certainly not regret, but only satisfy.

Weather coats and weather collars for men and women as well as havelocks with and without sleeves made from the best only original Styrian naturally waterproof loden fabrics, in all price ranges and with the most careful execution. Qualities, prices and color designations can be found on page 1 of the supplement to this. Current price, which, if lost, will also be delivered postage; in addition, separate large fabric sample cards are available free of charge and carriage paid as services for weather coats and havelocks: Special sample cards for officers' bike collars.

Weather Collar with Hood. “Murau” Weather Coat. Weather Coat "Trawies". Raglan Sports Coat. Havelock Without Sleeves. Ladies Rain and Tourist Coat.

Published by Josef Pichler & Sons, Graz. — “Leykam” Printers, Graz, Reprints and imitations of even individual illustrations reserved by law.

The above post is long so please use the link below to go back to the beginning. It took a while to translate all of this and there are still some mistakes. The cover page and the first few pages were damaged (thin paper) but not too bad. The size of the document is ~ 10 x 10.5 inches. You can click on the images to expand the size.

Excellent find, Steve. Extremely historically interesting. Thanks for your time on the translation, too.
