Stork from Ladbergen, Germany
« on: Friday 02 August 19 21:15 BST (UK) »
This is a member of the Stork family who came to Indiana, USA from
Ladbergen, Germany in the 1840's. It is a postage stamp sized photo in
a cardboard frame. Can anyone tell me what is the type/date
of hat he is wearing?  An idea of date will help me identify. Thanks.

Some kind of ID photo.
As for a date I would suggest Edwardian.

Thank you - interesting. Looks as if it may be a fur hat.
Wonder if this type  was worn in Northern Germany in 1800's.

I wonder if the hat might have a peak.   :-\ 
At first I thought astrakan - but now I think peaked.

Fascinating thought, Wiggy. They do seem to have variations in shape'
& hard to tell if this hat is round or peaked.  Sounds as if he
likely bought it in Germany, not USA. Ladbergen is NE, closer
to Netherlands.

Could be a Prinz-Heinrich-Mütze (sailors cap) popularized by Prince Henry of Prussia (1862–1929).
