The OLD WAY.......Ephemera, and other stuff...BEFORE 1920

Discussion in 'Hats' started by M Hatman, Mar 1, 2018.

  1. Here is a new thread I am dedicating to all things (and companies) HATS.....with some other associated items including original photographs from my collection of people and their hats. This will all date before 1920 with a special emphasis on the mid to later 19th century (1800's).
    Attached is a teaser photo of two hat catalog's and a brochure from the 1890's. In the coming days I will of course be posting more images of these (and other) catalogs and things.....

  8. When I get home I will start photographing some of the catalogs. But for now, here is a picture of one of my Stetson hat pins (I have two), patent dated on the back 1896 on an inserted paper label. They probably used it until the 20's I would guess. This will fit the bill for now.....
    Enjoy,

    PS letters are crystal clear, only my photo is blurry (to protect the innocent).;)

  10. Ok, this is an undated "half fold-half fold" sales brochure. Dates between 1881 when the buisness was founded to 1919 when The Baltimore Bargan House was sold and became the American Wholesale Corporation. The styles and names shown would date the advertising to 1901 or shortly there after .

    Great information, Mark. Thanks for these. Interesting to see that quite a few of these hats appear to be quite "loose" in the shape of the crown and brim.

    Anton Pichler k.u.k. Hof - Hutfabrikant Graz, Austria (Styria), Nov. 1, 1914 from the Gotisches Haus (Gothic House) Bad Homburg, Germany hat collection. This is a fantastic collection (during WWI) of mostly very high end dress Velours with pricing and other information (such as quality distinctions) for the German market. I believe this is the only pricing document for a detailed catalog I have come across so rare. Anton Pichler was one of the top hat experts in Austria (he passed away in 1925) and the company lasted into the 1970s maybe later. Edward VII of England made one of his Trachten Velours famous in England. I have been looking for a long time for an old (pre WWII) Anton Pichler soft felt or stiff felt hat but haven't found one yet.

    ** Austrian Velours became popular in America around 1910. During WWI there was a heavy war tax so such hats went for $30.00 or more retail per hat (for the time a large sum of money).
