    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I was actually looking for something else but found this (didn't even know I still had it). I won't post the entire booklet in order not to bore the non-German-speakers amongst you. Obviously the trade "Kappenmacher" existed longer than I had thought in Austria considering the date of publication of the information (1988 and 1994).

    Default Final Exam for cap makers

    Ladies and Gentlemen:

    Found another document of times bygone. This is what examiners expected Austrian cap makers to be able to do in order to complete their apprenticeship positively. A pity the trade no longer exists in itself.
    As to the text: the apprentice had 5 hours time to produce one Tellerkappe with piping and lacquered visor and one civil cap (composed of six parts).
    This work is supposed to be done by a professional cap maker within only three hours (which is perhaps possible if you want to make a cap in the modern way i. e. foam rubber reinforcement of the fabric, woven piping that simply overlaps etc. etc.). If you want to produce a TR cap following Hempe's suggestions 5 hours for one cap will not be enough (even if you have all the materials/sewing machines/pressing iron etc. at hand) - at least not for me.

    Wonderful. Thanks for your research. All fabulous documents and proof positive of why such cap making is more or less a lost art.
