About the object

The so-called »Schnozhut« of Hotzenwälder traditional folk costume was the most famous hat in the Baden region long before the famous »Bollenhut« (pom pom hat). In 1841, Johann Baptist Kirner painted his impression of the Agricultural Association award ceremony for the most skilfully designed straw hat. The »Schnozhut« thus paved Kirner's way to become Baden's court painter.
