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 to the left and right 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 #44878 AH Formal Pastry Fork

This party fork is a utensil that is not seen too often and is very dear to add to a AH flatware assembly. This pastry fork has three tines with the tine on the left being cut at the tip and also being slightly wider.

The fork measures five and seven eighths inches long having the Greek chain link pattern running around the handle. At the lower is a very fine raised political eagle with half open wings clutching an immobile swastika. The führers monogram AH is on either side respectively. On the reverse the for is marked with the crescent crown "800" and an eagle.

A very nice example here in choice condition.

AHSILVER #44877 AH Formal Small Relish Knife

This relish knife is quite small being only six and three quarter inches in length. The blade is a stainless steel type and is in nice condition throughout.

The handle of the knife has the Greek chain link pattern running on the edges of both sides. On the obverse it has a raised political eagle with half open wings clutching a wreathed immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath are the initials "AH". The knife is hallmarked on the reverse upper area where the handle meets the blade. It is hallmarked with the crescent crown "800" and an eagle.

This knife measures six and three quarter inches in length.

AHSILVER #44957C AH Large Serving Tray

This serving tray is all silver plated and of a nickel base. It is rounded in shape and measures 18 inches across the diameter.

The tray has a edge which vaults upward and curves outward and on the edge there is the rolled political eagle with half open wings clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively are Hitler's intials "AH".

This tray has a lot of patination and shows some usage. It would probably be shown best if it were cleaned by the next owner. By the contrast in the patina it appears that there was an object set on the middle of the tray for many years as area is lighter that the rest of the tray. I do not see any markings on the tray other than the monogram.

A good original piece here which would be perfect for displaying other AH serving pieces or utensils.

AHSILVER #43976 Adolf Hitler Silver Presentation Frame with Rare Autographed Hoffmann Photo

This offering presents an original Adolf Hitler silver frame, measuring 13 1/2 inches X 9 1 2/ inches. The frame does not appear to have ever been cleaned, being in a desired dark patina that really looks great. The frame forward edges feature three descending in size tiers and at the bottom area, there is a 2 7/8 inch wide flat plate that is bordered with the Greek Key pattern featured on many of Hitler's personal items to include the AH Formal flatware, his cigar clippers, tobacco boxes and other silver items used at the table and other areas of his residences. In the center of flat plate is a raised open-wing Party eagle with clutched wreath and immobile swastika. The head of the eagle is looking to the viewer's left, which would date this frame as being one of the earlier examples. Later examples have the eagle head looking to the viewer's right. Apparently the Party argued over which way the official eagle's head should be turned, so we see these anomalies on items such as Gau Level fender pennants and even early produced swords. The frame is hallmarked on the top flat edge with the maker initials, "FH over W" enclosed within a square border. Above the initials is positioned a monk with open arms and the letters "R" and ":S" on either side respectively.This was a symbol of Munich. Additionally, there is the stamping of the silver content, ".925", which was the equivalent of Sterling. There is also a stamping which appears to be a crown with a cross.

The reverse of the frame is covered with an off-red leatherette textured backing. The center area of the backing is cut-off and hinged to allow access to the photograph. This section is kept closed with 6 small movable silver "stays" which are retained in position by matching screws. Attached to the backing is a matching leatherette stand which folds outward for positioning the frame upward upon a table. The entire backing assembly is in good condition.

The frame contains a seldom-seen seen specially-sized photograph of Adolph sitting just slightly to the side and looking off to the viewer's right. As is normal for Hitler, there is no smile, but rather a very serious-looking Hitler bearing an expression as though he might be smelling something. Hitler is dressed in a Party tunic complete with his WWI Wound Badge and 1st Class Imperial Iron Cross. He wears a tie complete with a NSDAP Party eagle tie pin. His belt is an officer style with SA buckle. And, of course, on his left arm above his elbow, there is the ever-present NSDAP armband.

Across the breast area of the Hitler image, just above the flap button, the photograph has an inked dedication, as well of the signature of Hitler. The dedication reads 'Berlin den 11 Mai', but no year given. The reverse of the photo is rubber-stamped with Hitler's personal photographer's name and address all within a rectangle, "Heinrich Hoffmann/ Photobericherstatter der Reichsleitung der NSDAP/ Berlin SW 68/ Kochstr. 10". The photograph was produced for the exact size of the frame and is not a cut-down or a picture altered to fit the frame.

A seldom seen AH presented style frame with other than the standard Hitler photograph normally seen in these frames. This makes me think that the recipient may have been someone close to Hitler or a personal friend, as it is extremely rare to see an original to the piece, non-standard photo in one of these frames.

A fine original addition to an advanced political collection.

AHSILVER #44678 Adolf Hitler Drink Coaster

These drink coasters are always sought after by AH silver collectors and I am pleased to offer this original example.

The round coaster has a 4 inch diameter and is about an inch high with rolled rim at the top.

The insert consists of a felt pad. The original pads were a tan color. This example is red and is most likely a replacement.

The edge of the coaster is deeply impressed with Hitler's s monogram, "AH". The bottom of the coaster is maker-marked, "Wellner".

A fine original here all set to accept your evening "Old Fashion".

AHSILVER #44653C Personal Hitler Birthday Gift Silver Candelabra Celebrating His Accomplishments

This large candelabra is of absolute highest quality craftsmanship and produced of superb silver. The amount of work throughout is almost unbelievable. The candelabra is 15 inches high and measures about 16 inches wide. It has a single upward-extending candle holder in the center and four elegant arms that extend outward with candle holders at their ends. The arms and center extension are portrayed with sensational curves and struts being really beautiful to the eye. The candle holder is of two piece construction, the upper assembly retaining the candle holders fitting into the base. The base is flared out ward to a bell shape at the bottom with a partially smooth rim running around the circumference where there is engraving. The base runs upward to a fine bell flair at the top through which the center area is equipped with a round sleeve to accept the insert of the upper area.

Engraved in four separate panels located upward from the bottom rim are Hitler's main accomplishments to the date of the candelabra which is 1938. First, is an engraved open-winged Political Eagle clutching a wreath with a mobile swastika, with Hitler's monogram "A.H" largely engraved respectively on either side of the wreath.. The second panel has the elaborately engraved date, "9. Nov. 1923", which of course, was the date of the infamous Munich Beer Hall Putsch. The third panel is equally elaborately engraved with the date of Hitler's rise to the German Chancellorship, "30. Jan. 1933", and the last panel has the date, "13. Marz 1938", which was the date of the successful annexation of Austria into the Reich. Obviously, the presenter of this remarkable candelabra gave this gift to Hitler in 1938 as a optimum commemorative piece culminating in celebration of Hitler's success with gaining the "Anschluss" without firing a shot. And then a month later Hitler receiving a 99.1% approval in a vote by the Austrian people. Little did the viewer know at this time, that there was much more from Hitler to come!

The lower rim of the piece is hallmarked at the left with a small stamping that looks similar to a spy glass on a pedestal. Next is "800", representing the silver content, and then there are the silver markings of a crescent and an imperial crown. After this is a six digit number, "130699".

A remarkable one-of-kind AH gift. The piece was collected by the consignor's parents who were New York City antique dealers in the 1950s and 1960s. Outstanding original piece.

AHSILVER #44652 Adolf Hitler Silver Cigarette Box

This original cigarette box is the first example that I have handled produced by the Bruckmann silver company. Others are usually made by a Munich-based firm "FHW". Since Bruckmann produced the Reich official silver service flatware, it would not seem odd that they also would have made these boxes. The box measures 6 1/2" X 4 1/2", being 1 7/8" high. The lid opens with upward pressure on a built-in loop at the center obverse. The lip is decorated with an applied Reich political eagle, having half-opened wings, clutching a wreathed imobile swastika in its talons. The eagle shows some minor wear to the bird's head and the breast feathering area. When opening the lid, the opener's thumb lifts against the lever, while the third and second figure rest on the eagle to apply the necessary pressure for the upward release. So, it makes sense on a box that was somewhat well-used, that this area would show some minor wear. Hitler's monogram letters, "A.H", are applied respectively on either side of the wreath. The border edge of the lid is decorated with the traditional Greek chain-link pattern so often utilized on Hitler silver. Looking through a loupe, it can be seen that the Greek pattern chain is all hand-engraved.There is a small crease ding on the right upper edge and also on the left upper edge, otherwise there are no flaws on the box. The four lower edges of the cigarette box are fitted with three-tiered style legs The bottom of the box is fitted with a hard, large-grained black leather insert. The opening of the lid is controlled by a piano-style hinge at the reverse. The inside lid as well as the lower box are lined in traditional cedar wood, having a separation in the center. The lower edge of the box is hallmarked, "BRUCKMANN", the stamping of which is preceded with the silver symbols of a "crescent" and an "imperial crown", and followed with the silver percentage, "800".

In studying this box, there is no question that it was used quite a bit. Since it is slightly different than the types that we have seen coming from the Berghof, it is my belief that the box could have been used prior to the 1938 order of the new Reich silver for the Berghof, or it is possible, the box could have been used at the Führerbau or even at one of Hitler's other residences. Although Hitler did not smoke and did not allow smoking in his presence, almost everyone else of these times did. So, it was common courtesy to supply smoking materials to distinguished visitors and guests.

AHSILVER #44078 Early Hitler Photo In Period Silver Framer with Eagle

This early photograph of Hitler in original period silver frame has a great classic look to it and would do much to accent a collection.

The photograph is not marked on the reverse, but it is an original example. It appears to be circa 1925 or 1926, and would have been taken prior to Hitler's relationship with the photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann, which I believe began about 1931. The photo is in perfect condition showing nominal age toning, but otherwise, is in perfect condition. It presents a pensive Hitler looking straight at the lens and wearing a conventional business suit with white shirt and tie. Hitler also wears a Party Badge on his lapel.

The period silver frame is in fine condition and overall measures 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. At the upper center edge is an applied silver Party Eagle. The detailed eagle is the SA type, having open wings and clutching a wreathed swastika. It is of silver, matching the frame. At the bottom center of the lower frame rim, it is hallmarked with the traditional German silver marks being a crescent, crown, "835", and what appears to be an eagle. The end portion of the area is also stamped, "S". The reverse is covered with a grained wood-like panel with hinged flap for standing the upright picture on a table. The retaining panel is fitted with four silver movable tabs of the variety typically seen on quality German frames.

A very fine original example here, and perfect for display with a collection.

AHSILVER #44181 AH Formal Pattern Demitasse Spoon

This very choice Adolf Hitler Demitasse Spoon, like all spoons of this size, was used for coffee drinks (usually in specialty cups) and for the spooning of cappuccino froth. This dainty spoon only measures 4 inches in length.

As with all of the pieces in the Formal Pattern the handle is bordered in the classic Greek Key pattern and decorated with a Political eagle. This bird has half-opened wings and clutches a wreathed immobile swastika. Hitler's initials, "A" and "H", can be seen to the left and right of the wreath, respectively.

The reverse of the spoon is hallmarked with a crescent, an Imperial crown, "800", and a Prussian eagle.

This example does not look to have been used much, if at all.

AHSILVER #44337C Führerbau Engraved Serving Dish

This beautiful Serving Dish appears to be silver plated, having a very fine finish throughout. The dish is oval and ten inches across, with three "stages" on the interior.

Engraved on the base of the dish, in capital letters, is the word "FÜHRERBAU". The dish looks to have seen little usage, being in fine condition overall. This stands to reason as the Munich Führerbau was used early in the period and not so much after the construction of Obersalzberg.

The bottom surface of the dish is marked "Wutt. Metalw. Fabrik / Geisling Pn-Steige / NS WFM 18".

Items from the Führerbau are quite rare and very desirable.

AHSILVER #43381C AH Small Table Cover

This AH table cover is the first of its kind that I have seen. It is an informal type cloth that probably was used on a kitchen or breakfast table or even in a bathroom.

It measures 36 inches by 19 inches. The fabric is a textured type of cotton remaining in perfect condition. Both the upper and lower edge areas of the table cloth are embroidered with the Greek key link pattern frequently seen on AH owned items. On one end of the cloth is a fine hand-embroidered white Political Eagle with half-open wings and clutching a wreath with swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively, are Hitler's initials, "AH". This embroidery is identical to that seen on other well-known AH items such as formal and informal napkins and table cloths.

A very rare item here and perfect for displaying some other AH tableware that may be in your collection.

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 initials "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 #42636C Formal Pattern "AH" Monogrammed Cigar Clipper

For those of you that are collecting AH flatware and other silver pieces, I think that you will agree that the AH Cigar Clippers have to be at the top of the "most-desired" category. As a cigar smoker myself, it is one of the pieces that I cherish the most in my personal AH silver collection. Well, here is your chance.

The cigar clipper is 7 inches in length and at its widest section at the bottom handle, it is one inch wide. The edges of both sides of the handle have the traditional "Greek Key" decorative panels that we see on most of the items especially ordered for the Berghof's Reich government dinner set. The silvering throughout both sides remains in choice condition being smooth, effectively bordered by the edge pattern. At the upper end portion is the cup insert to place the cigar drawing end in for cutting. The cutting hole is slightly smaller than the size we see today, as during the 1930s, the cigars were, for the most part, thinner than the one's we usually smoke today. Below the cutting cup is also another smaller hole, should the user require a cut for an even smaller cigar. At the upper right is the spring-loaded activator lever which controls the cutting process. The blade lever itself is producer-marked with the logo of a circle having arrows all around it, being a well-known Solingen blade maker that also made SA daggers, the name of which currently escapes me. At the bottom of the handle is a raised political eagle having half-open wings and looking to the viewer's left.. The bird clutches a wreath with immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively, is the Führer's monogram, "AH". The details throughout the bird and swastika are all there. At the top of the reverse handle are the standard Bruckmann hallmarks normally seen on all AH flatware from this vintage service being a crescent, crown "800" and an eagle.

This cigar cutter works as well as it did when it once resided in the smoking area of Hitler's mountain chalet, Berghof. Although it is well-known that Hitler was not a smoker (and detested smoking), nearly everyone else of this time did smoke, so it was necessary to provide these amenities. Just imagine the famous or infamous persons that may have used this cutter! Literally anyone that visited Hitler at the Berghof after 1938. These people ranged from friends and favorites such as Sepp Dietrich, Göring, Ribbnetrop and Albert Speer, all the way up to leaders of countries such as Neville Chamberlain, and King Boris of Bulgaria. A real piece of history here!

AHSILVER #42369C Berghof "Pointed A" Pattern Wine Glass

This Wine Glass is crafted from fine crystal and in a conventional shape. It is six inches tall and in perfect condition.

This glass was part of the Berghof dinner service. Hitler's initials, "AH", have been hand cut into the crystal; each and every one of these glasses I've seen have had some variances in the exact cut of the monogram, which is to be expected from hand work. It is easy to see these were hand applied as the letters all differ slightly; this piece has a pointed look to the apex of the "A".

The subtle variations between these glasses makes each one unique, something I find every interesting. I have had a carafe with with very similar a "Pointed A" design.

A beautiful item here, and one you could use to drink a toast to your hobby!

Hitler's initials, "AH" has been hand cut into the crystal; each and every one of these glasses I've seen have had some variances in the exact cut of the monogram, which is to be expected from hand work. It is easy to see these were hand applied as the letters all differ slightly; this piece has a pointed look to the apex of the "A".

The subtle variations between these glasses makes each one unique, something I find every interesting. I have had a carafe with with very similar a "Pointed A" design.

A rare and beautiful Wine Glass here.

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, a 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.
