AHSILVER #37607C AH Formal Pattern Serving Spoon

This AH Formal Pattern Serving Spoon has a very large bowl and would not have been part of the normal place setting. It measures 8½ inches in length. The bowl portion of the spoon is in fine condition. The handle has the characteristic Greek Key pattern around the borders. Raised out on the lower handle is a Political eagle with half-opened wings and clutching a wreath with an immobile swastika. The detail to this bird is still crisp. Flanking the bird on either side are the initials “A” and “H” respectively.

The reverse is marked with the usual hallmarks; a crescent, a Prussian crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

A difficult to find piece of AH Formal Pattern here.

Near Mint. $1,695.00

AHSILVER #37608C AH Formal Pattern Luncheon Knife

This AH Formal Pattern Luncheon Knife is 8¼ inches long. It has an excellent stainless steel blade that still has all of the crossgrain in the surfaces. There are two very minute nicks in the edge, but other than these the blade is in nearly perfect condition.

The handle has the characteristic Greek Key pattern around the borders. Raised out on the obverse handle is a Political eagle with half-opened wings and clutching a wreath with an immobile swastika. The detail to this bird is still good. Flanking the bird on either side are the initials “A” and “H” respectively.

On the upper reverse handle, close to where ti connects to the blade, are the traditional silver hallmarks; a crescent, a Prussian crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

A nice example of AH Formal Pattern silverware here.

AHSILVER #37586C Silver Swastika Knife Rest from the Berghof

This silver Swastika Knife Rest is the first example I have ever seen. According to the consignor it was looted from the Berghof, along with other AH flatware.

The rest itself is about 2½ long. On each end is a cut-out swastika. Although the piece is not marked it does appear to be silver. It would have sat on the table and would have been useful for laying down your gravy smeared knife, sparing both the table cloth and the often hysterical sensibilities of the host.

This is a most interesting and great looking item here, one that I believe to be extremely rare. I'm sure it would make for interesting dinner conversation!

Near Mint. $495.00

AHSILVER #37454 AH Beige Linen Napkin

This is, as the name would imply, a beige linen napkin. It is the most popular style AH Napkin that we see, and the most accepted; there is an identical example which appears in the “Liberated Adolf Hitler Memorabilia” book, by Dr. Mark Griffith. Oddly this book doesn't have numbered pages; it's about 20 pages in or so.

This napkin measures approximately 11½ by 12½ inches. It is quite beautiful, having an embroidered Political Eagle with half-opened wings and clutching a wreathed mobile swastika. Flanking the wreath are the initials “A” and “H” respectively.

This piece is in full Mint condition and would make for a necessary accompaniment for a collection of AH silverware.

Mint. $1,095.00

AHSILVER #37455 AH Beige Linen Napkin

This is AH Beige Linen napkin is just that – a beige linen napkin, although a most interesting one. It is the most popular style AH Napkin that we see, and the most accepted; there is an identical example which appears in the “Liberated Adolf Hitler Memorabilia” book, by Dr. Mark Griffith on the 21st page. Dr. Griffith did not number his page so you're going to have to count.

This napkin measures approximately 11½ by 12½ inches. It is quite beautiful, having an embroidered Political Eagle with half-opened wings and clutching a wreathed mobile swastika. On either side of the wreath are the initials “A” and “H” respectively.

This piece is fully Mint and certain makes for a perfect accompaniment to a collection of AH silverware.

Mint. $1,095.00

AHSILVER #37384 AH Informal Pattern Luncheon Fork

This AH Informal Pattern Luncheon Fork is in choice condition. It measures 7 inches in length. It has plain borders, the only embellishment being a Political Eagle with a plain wreath and immobile swastika. The initials “A” and “H” appear to the left and right of the wreath respectively.

The reverse there are the traditional Bruckmann hallmarks; a crescent, a Prussian crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

A fine opportunity here to acquire a rarely seen AH Informal Pattern piece. The Informal pattern is much more rare than the Formal Pattern. These pieces, in my opinion, are still under priced.

AHSILVER #37276C Adolf Hitler Cigarette Box

We are proud to able to offer one of the most elusive artifacts in the game; an original Adolf Hitler silver cigarette box. This will be the fourth one of these I have had the pleasure to offer over the last 30 years. Not too bad, considering there were most likely less than a dozen produced for Hitler's residences. As most of you already know, Hitler was rabid on the subject of smoking and refused any of it to be done in his presence. The fact was, however, during the 1930' s, almost everyone else did smoke. So, in order to be a good and accommodating host, it was necessary for the Führer to provide tobacco-related accouterments for his inner circle, valued guests, and waiting government emissaries on missions to talk with him. The full sets consisted of large tobacco box, cigar box, cigarette box, match box cover and a cigar cutter. I have only seen one tobacco and cigar box over the years, so most likely larger quantities of the cigarette boxes, and match box covers were more commonly used.

Looking in my records, the AH cigarette boxes seemed to have been produced by two different firms. One firm, based in Munich and operated by two brothers, hallmarked their hand-made creations with the silver markings "925" with a crescent and Imperial crown. Their monogram, "Th" was combined with a replica of the famous Munich Maid. The other firm, "FHW" used the hallmark of their monogram, together with an ellipse containing the silver markings of a crescent and an Imperial crown, as well as the silver content, "925" which was the German equivalent of Sterling.

This cigarette box is the "FHW" version, and contains the hallmarks stated above. The box, measuring from the edges of the bottom of the legs, is 8 inches wide, by 5 7/8 inches deep, It has a height of 2 inches high. The center portion of the lid is raised, with a lowered edge border measuring 1/4 inch. The entire edge of the raised center portion is decorated with the Greek Key pattern. Looking through a loupe, the Greek pattern has been entirely and skillfully hand-cut. The same pattern appears on other AH personal silver pieces as well as the table flatware used at Hitler's residences. At the center of the lid is an applied Political eagle facing to the viewer's left. The eagle displays half-open wings, and in his talons retains a wreath containing an immobile-style swastika in relief. On either side of the wreath, respectively, are the applied initials of the Führer, "AH". The eagle shows a little mild wear on the middle surfaces, but not bad. The center area of the lid's edge is equipped with a flat catch for raising the lid. The inside lid and box area are covered in cedar wood to preserve the tobacco. The lower box area is equally separated by a removable, matching cedar spacer. If the spacer is removed, this box would easily accommodate cigars.

This beautiful silver box has not been cleaned for many years, and displays a natural patina. It would be the pièce de résistance of an advanced AH flatware and tableware collection, or would make an excellent investment for the future. If you have a copy of Tom Johnson's outstanding large sized-book, "German War Booty", you can see a similar cigarette case on Page 293. On Page 295, there is a Hitler personal mirror with the exact "FHW" markings of this example. Since these items shown in the book were taken directly from Hitler's Munich apartment, there is a good chance that this cigarette box also comesfrom there. Given its rarity and desirability, it is hard not to imagine that a box like this would not grow dramatically in value. At the same time, if you are a smoker, perhaps the box could be put to good use over the years, in addition to the fun of admiring your investment. A 100% guaranteed original here. Collectors often ask if AH actually used the state silverware they bought. Since there were some 3000 pieces of flatware produced, this would be hard to say. In the case of this box, however, although the Führer did not personally use it, he surely held discussions around it and was continually inthe same room where it once rested on a table. Artifacts didn't have tape recorders in them, but you can be sure that history in the making, good or bad, was discussed within earshot of this box. You can't get much better than that!

AHSILVER #35815 AH Formal Pattern Demitasse Spoon

This AH Formal Pattern Demitasse Spoon is only 4½ inches in length. It is still most beautiful having all of the same detail as is seen on the larger flatware pieces. The demitasse spoon shows a little wear here and there but overall it is still in good condition. The spoon features the Greek Key pattern running throughout the handle border and at the lower area of the handle is depicted the half open-winged political eagle looking to the left. This eagle retains a wreath in its talons with an immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively is the Führer’s initials, “AH”. On the reverse the spoon has the usual hallmarks consisting of a crescent, a Prussian eagle, “800” and a Prussian crown.

These demitasse spoons are difficult to obtain. In one of the books that I read recently Von Schirach’s wife talks about how mad Hitler would become when the SS head butler would inform him that more of his demitasse spoons were “missing”. Apparently guests at the Berghoff were no different than anyone else and were all looking for an easy souvenir. This is a true story! It also might explain why this family had just this one spoon that I purchased from them.

Excellent. $1,195.00

AHSILVER #37271 AH Formal Pattern Bullion Spoon

This AH Formal Pattern Bullion Spoon is completely pristine throughout. It measures 5½ in length, and the handle has the traditional Greek Key design which runs about the edges of both sides. The obverse lower portion of the handle is adorned with a Political eagle with half-open wings. The eagle clutches a wreath with an immobile swastika. Placed on the left and right side of the wreath are the initials “A” and “H”, respectively.

The reverse facing of the spoon bears the hallmarks of the famous Bruckmann firm, being a crescent, an Imperial crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

A very fine example here, in completely perfect condition.

AHSILVER #37212C Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Formal Serving Tray

This very beautiful serving tray measures about 16 1/2 inches by 13 inches. It has a wonderful full 100% silvered finish, the base probably being nickel. There is little usage evident in the surfaces of the tray. The tray has a raised two inch border with additional edge at the ending areas. The tray is roll-stamped with the Reichs Chancellery eagle on the bottom area of the inner portion. The eagle has closed wings and clutches an immobile swastika in its talons. On either side of the wreath respectively, are the initials, "RK", which, of course, stand for Reichskanzlei. There is a small ripple in the surface near the upper portion of the tray, but it is very minor.

An exceptional example and extremely rare. The AH trays are common compared to Chancellery items, as most of the service coming from the Chancellery was "liberated" or destroyed by the Russians.

Near Mint. $2,995.00

AHSILVER #37055 AH Monogrammed Napkin

This beautiful all-cotton napkin is a beige color measuring 11 inches by 12 inches. It is a fine weave with an intricate break to accent a one inch border. On one corner, the napkin is intricately hand embroidered in white thread with the NSDAP closed-wing eagle. The eagle is the same as appears on the AH Formal Pattern flatware. The bird looks to the viewer's left and clutches a smooth wreath with mobile swastika in his tangs. Some really beautiful work here.

This napkin is in pristine condition and appears have never been used. This piece would make a fine accompanyment to a place setting of AH flatware.

Mint. $1095.00(#040815)

AHSILVER #36501C Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Small Serving Tray

This RK serving tray is fairly small, being only 11 1/2 inches in diameter. It is also possible it is a "charger plate"; these are the "show" plates that good restaurants put on the table before you are seated, together with the flatware, and take them off after you order.

The plate is solid heavy nickel, having fine silver-plated finish. It has two stepped rims around the edge, which descend down to the lower center portion in the center. The plate shows very few signs of usage on the surfaces. Along the second rim is the rolled logo used by the Reich Chancellery featuring a half-opened, highly-detailed eagle clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. On either sides of the wreath are the intials "R" and "K", respectively. The reverse is stamped by the maker, "Wellner", with the number "39" within a shaded circle; this is probably the factory model number of the plate.

This tray is in great condition and is quite a rare piece, being scarcer than the standard AH tableware trays. Good investment potential.

Near Mint. $2,395.00

AHSILVER #36756C AH Formal Pattern Luncheon Knife

This AH Formal Pattern Luncheon Knife measures 8½” in length. It features a separately produced blade which shows some minor usage and just the slight ding along the edge near the tip. Otherwise it remains in good condition.

The handle has the characteristic Greek Key pattern around the borders. At the lower portion is a highly detailed Political eagle, with half-opened wings and clutching an immobile swastika within a wreath. The initials, “A” and “H” flank the eagle on the left and right respectively. The handle shows some usage marks here and there, with just slight wear to the upper portions of the eagle's wings and breast.

The hallmarks on the knives are found on the reverse upper section where the handle connects to the blade. It is marked in the usual Bruckmann fashion; a crescent, a Prussian crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

A very nice example here.

Excellent Plus. $1,395.00

AHSILVER #36609C AH Informal Bullion Spoon

This AH Informal Pattern Bullion Spoon measures 5 and 3/8 inches in length. It is in excellent condition throughout, with a perfectly shaped bowl at the end. The handle is smooth on both sides, having the plain, raised out Political eagle, wreath, and swastika. The initials, “AH”, flank this eagle. The serrations on the wings are still visible, and in my opinion are a good indicator of wear in an Informal Pattern piece.

The knife is stamped at the reverse with the Bruckmann hallmarks; a crescent, an Imperial crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.

An excellent conditioned example here.

Mint Minus. $1,295.00

AHSILVER #36504C AH Silver Coaster with Original Insert

This AH Coaster has quite a bit of patination throughout the surfaces, however it remains in in excellent condition. Along the edge of the coaster can be seen the Führer's monogram, 'AH”, engraved with double-scribed letters. The bottom of the piece is marked with the familiar maker, “Wellner”.

The original brown felt insert is still within the coaster. There is a small burn mark on along the edge, and a couple of other spots here in there, but overall it is intact.

These AH Coasters only come up now and again, and in my opinion are great investments pieces that you can also use when drinking a nice cold beer.

Excellent. $1,395.00

AHSILVER #35931 Porcelain Plate Depicting Haus Wachenfeld

This 8¾ inch round porcelain plate is in beautiful, mint condition depicting “Haus Wachenfeld” which of course was the chalet that Hitler purchased in the Obersalzberg and later was renovated in 1936 to become the “Berghof”. The scene is quite stirring showing the fine original chalet with bright red flowers growing in a wooden shelf attached to the side of the house. The detail is exceptional throughout the roof area, the windows and the garage below. The house overlooked the marvelous Kehlstein Mountain. The scene is bordered with round gold trim.

The reverse of the plate is marked, “Haus Wachenfeld” and then in parenthesis, “Obersalzberg”. Below this is the maker symbol of the famous porcelain producer, “Rosenthale”. The name is split by twin swords with a Bavarian crown between the swords. Below this is “Selb-Bavaria”. The back of the plate is also holed where there has been installed a string for hanging. A great piece here to decorate your collecting room. A plate of this nature was probably a fairly popular souvenir of the Obersalzberg area although this is the first plate that I have seen which depicts Haus Wachenfeld rather than the Berghof.

Mint. $795.00

AHSILVER #35745C Large Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Serving Dish

This Reichschancellory Serving Dish is quite large, being an oval shape measuring about 18 inches overall, and roughly 10 inches wide. It has a 2 1/2 inch edge. This Serving Dish is very heavy, probably constructed of with a solid nickel base with a silver finish. This piece does not look to have ever been cleaned, and has a really great black patination evenly spread across all of the surfaces.

This dish is marked, on the reverse, "Wellner 53". One edge is roll-stamped with the Party Eagle, who looks to the left with half opened wings while clutching a wreathed mobile swastika. On either side of the wreath are the initials of the Reichschancellory, "RK". These markings are identical to the AS State Service pieces, the only difference being the "RK" initials.

A great piece here, which is extremely rare, and a key piece to any Reichskanzlei silver collection.

Uncleaned Mint. $2,800.00

AHSILVER #35746C Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Large Serving Tray

This Reichskanzlei Large Serving Tray appears to have been cleaned in the last decade or so. It measures 21 1/2 inches by 14 inches, and is an oval shape. The center rim is roll-stamped with the Party Eagle, who looks to the left with half opened wings and clutching a wreathed mobile swastika. On either side of the wreath are the initials of the Reichschancellory, "RK".

The reverse of this tray is marked, "Wellner 82". A real beauty here, this tray is of a size that would nicely accomodate a set of coffee and tea pots along with a creamer. This tray remains in perfect condition, and would make a great addition to any Reichskanzlei collection. The Reich Chancellery pieces are much rarer than the other AH types, and other than the "RK" stamping, are identical.

AHSILVER #35407 AH Formal Pattern Salad Fork

This AH Formal Pattern Salad Fork measures 7 1/8 inches in length. All of the tines on this Salad Fork are straight and crisp, and in a totally new-like state. The handle of the fork is bordered on the obverse with the characteristic Greek Key pattern.

The lower portion of the handle features a raised NSDAP Party Eagle, which clutches a wreath with immobile swastika in his talons. The reverse of the piece is silver hallmarked with a crescent, a Prussian crown, "800" and a Prussian eagle. Outstanding condition throughout on this piece of AH silverware.

Mint Minus. $1,595.00

AHSILVER #35398C Large Gravy boat with Base from the Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Table Service - Wellner

This Reich Chancellery Gravy Boat is is the work of the Wellner firm. The gravy boat is identical (apart from the monogram) to the AH monogramed pieces. This example has the rolled monogram of the Reich Chancellery. It consists of the Party eagle with half-open wings clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively, is the monogram, "R.K." (Reich Kanzlei). The base plate is about 10 1/2 inches oval, while the boat measures overall about 9 1/2 inches. The base plate appears permanently attached to the boat, and is maker-marked, "WELLNER / 40 cl". The boat is equipped with a spout at one end and on the other is a handle with flair at the upper section.

The piece does not appear to have been cleaned since the war, having an even patination throughout with some greenish residue inside the lower area of the boat itself. This piece is produced of solid nickel with a silver plate, as were all of the AH table service pieces. There is a small dent in the rim area of the base plate, but otherwise, the gravy boat is in excellent condition. The "RK" service pieces are rarer than the "AH" types, as they were only used in the Chancellery. For some reason, though, "RK" pieces sell for less than the "AH" pieces. I believe that will change as collectors learn the rarity of the two types. An important key piece if you are collecting "AH" or "RK" pieces from the Reich government table service.

AHSILVER #33454C AH Monogrammed Formal Pattern Large White Dinner Napkin

This AH Monogrammed Dinner Napkin is in white linen with a pattern running through the surfaces. The large size napkin was obviously designed to go with a tablecloth of the same pattern. This napkin shows some minor yellowing spots in the surfaces, but this is to be expected on something some 70 years old. The napkin has hand embroidery in one corner area which features the political eagle with half-open wings clutching a wreath with mobile swastika. On either side of the swastika is the Führer’s monogram “AH”. This napkin measures 25 inches by 25 inches and the pattern seems to be the same as the pattern shown in the tablecloth photo in Mark Griffith’s book on page 23. This is the first time that I have had an opportunity to offer one of these formal napkins. I believe them to be very rare.
