On occasion I am fortunate enough to offer some of the silver, flatware and serving pieces specifically made for the residences of Adolf Hitler. The "AH" silverware mostly seen by collectors today was made by the Bruckmann firm of Heilbronn. There are other patterns produced by other companies, but they are much rarer and do not seem as collectible. The Bruckmann flatware was produced in two pattern types. The most prevalent, and most desirable because of its detail, is the so-called "Formal" pattern. This pattern displays a detailed, raised-out, closed-winged Party eagle with swastika, and has the Führer's monogram, "A" and "H" positioned respectively on each side of the wreath. Additionally the handle is bordered with an attractive design known as "Greek Key".

The so-called "Informal" pattern contains the eagle and monogram only, and the stylized eagle design is depicted, with little detail. These pieces are so simply designed they almost convey a look of substantial wear on the surfaces of the bird. This pattern, however, seems to be much rarer. It is not known why the "Informal" pattern was produced, but it is thought to have been possibly used as a "Luncheon" pattern, and only at one of the larger residences, perhaps at the Chancellery.

It is generally believed there were approximately 3,000 pieces of the "Formal" pattern produced, and about 1000 pieces of the "Informal". Obviously serving pieces such as an asparagus fork or sugar tongs would have been produced in far less quantity than standard forks, knives and spoons. Either pattern is hallmarked in the identical manner, and the marks appear stamped in line, being a crescent, a crown, "800", and a Prussian eagle. Serving trays and larger serving utensils are not usually silver, but are normally silvered plate. These pieces generally were produced by the Wellner firm, and are stamped with a "W", and usually a silver plating content number.

In recent years AH silver items have really come into their own. Prices continue to rise, and in my opinion, are a tremendous investment. They are a great collectible in that examples are still obtainable, but since quantities are limited, demand continues to drive the prices upward. Own something produced for the use of the Hitler himself... What could have more appeal to 3rd Reich collectors!

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.

Excellent. $2,500.00(#042417)

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

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. $1,600.00

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

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.

The construction of these snips is quite interesting. The silver company basically took a pair of small knife handles and inserted the "scissor" portions into the ends. Two rings were then attached to the bottom of the affair, to provide a finger hold. The handles are marked with a crescent, an Prussian crown, "800" and a Prussian eagle. The blades, one of them with a slight hook, are marked "S". This marking may identify the original producer of the scissor blades. Chances are the flatware factory purchased these components elsewhere.

AHSILVER #38393C Adolf Hitler Cigar Box

It is always amazing and even sometimes overwhelming to me when I see the kind of artifacts that make their way thru my hands and into this cellar office of ours. Over these many years we have had some of the best things ever made during the Third Reich pay us these short-term visits and each time it happens, I have to catch my breath at the opportunity and prestige that it bestows on our humble business. This AH Cigar Box is in this category. I have handled and sold several AH Cigarette Boxes over the years and have seen others at the MAX and other shows, but this is the first time that I have seen a Cigar Box, let alone have had the distinct pleasure to offer it to my collecting community. Granted it is expensive, but I feel that its rarity and beauty alone should attract the right customer - there just can not be a better artifact to highlight an advanced collection. Although we know Hitler did not smoke, virtually everyone else of the time did, so accessories of this nature were provided at the Berghof for the pleasure of distinguished visitors and the inner circle members visiting this elegant alpine chateau.

The Cigar Box bears the hallmark on the bottom, "FH over W" within a square. Below this maker marking are the typical German hallmarks for silver, being a crescent and an Imperial crown enclosed within an oval. And next to this, the markings equivalent to Sterling, being "925", also with an oval. . These same markings appear on other AH boxes I have sold in the past and are known markings for many "AH" accessories. If you have a copy of Tom Johnson's outstanding, "German War Booty" book, you will see these identical markings being on an AH monogram hand mirror on Page 295.

The dimensions of the Cigar Box are 8 5/16 inches wide, 6 3/16 inches long and 3 1/8" high. The width and length are slightly larger than AH Cigarette boxes and the depth is substantially deeper. The silver lid has a smooth narrow border edge which has a step-up for the lid itself. The entire edge of the lid that meets the step-up border is stamped with the Greek chain link pattern. The remaining area of the lid is plain. In the center is an applied Party eagle with half-open wings. The bird clutches a wreath with a raised-out immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively, are the F∏hrer's initials, "AH". The feathering and other details of the eagle and wreath remain excellent.

There are some light handling scratches on the lid that have occurred over time, but they are not serious. The rear left corner of the box shows a minor ding, but it is barely noticeable. The remainder of the box is dent free. The obverse of the center lid section is equipped with a protruding manual opening latch. Each lower corner of the box is equipped with two-tiered, square-shaped legs. The legs protrude outward, giving an elegance to the simple design. The bottom of the box is also smooth silver with the exception of the hall markings.

The lid requires a small amount of pressure to open, as it is air-sealed with the cedar inside wood to keep the tobacco contents from drying out. The interior liner is of all cedar wood. It has a removable wood slot in the center and there are two other slots cut into the wood for adjustments to the separator wood. The left edge of the liner has a crack running its length and appears to have been repaired at some time in the past.

So, there you have it. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own something that is important and incredibly historical. One can only imagine the conversations that took place over and around this Cigar Box seven decades ago during the height of Hitler's success. You have all seen the pictures of numerous dignitaries arriving at the Berghof to see the F∏hrer. Each and every one of them, at one time during their stay, was in the area of this box, or actually reaching for a good Cuban cigar. Think of it - you could have this piece of history in your home. If you smoke cigars like I do, you might even consider filling it up with your favorites and enjoy a cognac while the cigar smoke drifts over and around this treasure.

AHSILVER #38215C AH Monogrammed Brandy Carafe and Glasses

This Brandy Carafe is a most beautiful vessel, being of the very highest quality; I suspect it is made of crystal. It is about 11 inches high and 5 inches wide at the broadest point. It was brought back by a veteran of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne. The purchase from the family was made in the early 1990's in the Falls Church/Arlington area of Virginia.

The carafe is bulbous at the bottom, almost like a drop of falling water, with a slim neck that flares outward at the rim. The initials "AH" have been beautifully cut into the bulbous portion of the carafe. The lines that form the monogram have been accented with cut rows that run the length. It is capped with a graceful ovoid plug.

The two slim glasses which accompany this carafe have the same beautiful monogram treatment. They measure about 4" inches high, and are in simple straight pattern.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a carafe that was used at Berchtesgaden. Presumably it would have been used to provide after dinner brandy to guests at the Berghof. Hitler of course did not drink (or smoke for that matter, which probably negated the chance for an accompanying cigar) but almost everyone else did at the time, so pieces of this nature were necessary. A great, guaranteed authentic AH item here, and one that could easily dress up your dining room.

AHSILVER #38092 AH Silver Tray

This AH Tray is in outstanding condition, showing little to no signs of usage and with a beautiful even black patination across all of the surfaces.

The tray is 15 " across. It has a flared lip around the entire piece. There is a rolled style Political Eagle with half-opened wings and a wreathed mobile swastika. The bird is flanked by the initials "A" and "H". The detailing throughout the bird, wreath, and double-scribed monogram is excellent.

Directly opposite the monogram is the maker stamping "Wellner". Below the Wellner name is the number "50", which is most likely the model number.

If you are looking to add some AH silver to your collection, this tray would make for a wonderful first step. It would make an excellent platform for other pieces of fine silver you might buy in the future. A very fine item in terrific condition.

AHSILVER #37713 Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Silvered Serving Tray

This Serving Tray is a beauty, showing very little usage. It measures 16 " inches by 13 inches. There are no dents or dings anywhere on this tray.

There is a beveled rim that follows the perimeter of this rectangular tray. The tray is roll-stamped with a Political Eagle clutching a wreathed immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath are the initials "R" and "K", respectively.

The opposite side of the tray is stamped with the maker "Wellner" over the number "58", which is probably the model number.

A great example here to set some Third Reich silverware on. The RK pieces are actually rarer than the AH pieces, and are still priced fairly low. A good here opportunity to acquire an investment-quality piece.

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 the pages in the book so you're going to have to count.

This napkin measures approximately 11 by 12 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 pristine and certainly would make for a perfect accompaniment to a collection of AH silverware.

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.

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.

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.

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 F∏hrer'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"Ùs 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.
