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 #40999C Formal Hitler Hoffmann Portrait with Silver Presentation Frame & Box

Certainly one of the most desirable artifacts in our hobby is an example of one of the presentation AH photos in its original silver frame with accompanying box. The frame and photo are in choice condition. The picture and frame come from the famous Frank D. Gish collection and were acquired by Gish directly from the 101st Airborne Division veteran that brought the artifact home.

The frame has an edge with three step-up sections with smooth surfaces. At the lower portion of the frame is a matching silver panel measuring nearly 2 inches wide and having the four edges engraved with the classic Greek Key pattern seen on many AH items, to include the famous formal pattern state flatware. In the center of the panel is a raised Political eagle with head looking to the viewer's right. The wings are fully open. The bird's talons grasp a wreath which frames a raised immobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath respectively, are the Fhrer's initials, "A.H".

The frame measures 13 3/8 inches long by 9 3/8 inches wide. The surrounding outer edge is smooth and is 1 inch wide. On the center of the upper outer frame surface are the stamping's of the producer, "FHW" within a square. Below is a stamping depicting the Munich Monk; this figure has a long and equally interesting history, and one that has caused a bit of confusion in the hobby. On either side of the Monk are the artist's initials, "V H", respectively, and below the figure is an "M", which stands for Munich.

The photograph is the infamous Hoffmann formal depiction of Hitler from waist up, standing in Political uniform with swastika and eagle tie pin. His left arm is positioned at the center buttons at the waist of his uniform, and the right arm is crooked with his right hand positioned on his hip. The Fhrer's practiced face is serious, looking slightly to his left. The photograph remains in perfect condition having a 3/4 inch white matte. The original glass remains.

The reverse of the frame is covered in a brownish-purplish grained leather. The opening is hinged at the top and is retained closed by six screw-retained silver brackets.There is a flap which opens for standing display of the frame. The reverse remains in near perfect condition.

When we acquired the accompanying storage box, there was one edge of the box that was gone to time and also the edges of the box and lid had been separated from the top and lower surfaces. We re-built the box and edges, recovering the inner edges of the box with velvet to match as best as possible. We left the left side edge of the lid loose with an opening flap for easy lifting of the lid. The cover of the storage box features an embossed gold eagle which is about 3 3/4 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches long. The eagle is the Party type having half-open wings, looking to the viewer's right and clutching a wreath with mobile swastika within. 100% of the gild to the bird remains. The interior of the box is red velvet covered. On the bottom inner portion, there is a recess which accommodates the flap on the reverse of the frame.

The frame and box come together with the veterans statement, Platoon Leader Lt. Donald N. Banman of 2nd Platoon, C company, 506th Para Inf., 101st Airbourne Division. The statement give details of the various "booty", coming directly from the Berghof, of which this picture, frame and box are mentioned. The testament is dated July 11, 1987 and is witnessed by Frank Gish, the original acquiring collector.

A great opportunity here to acquire an extremely rare and desirable AH frame and box, which is not only original, but documented from the original acquiring 101st Airborne veteran. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Special Meissen Offering

The pieces listed below are all Meissen Red Dragon pattern. They come from Adolf Hitler's Kehlstein House also known as the Eagle's Nest, where this particular type set of Meissen was used. The Red Dragon pattern was first established back in the early 1700s. after Meissen began their business. Each piece listed has the Meissen sword trademark circa 1930s.

These pieces were brought home by a veteran who's wife was the secretary of my consignor's father when he worked in the Pentagon during the 1970s. The secretary's husband was a military intelligence officer and had been in many of the homes and offices of some of the highest ranking Nazis at war's end. My consignor's father mentioned that his son was an avid collector, and since the secretary's veteran husband had since passed, she gave him (free) a large box containing many table service items from the Berghoff, Bormann's home, Göring's chalet and the Kehlstein house. We have run many of these other silver and table pieces recently on our website. The Meissen listed below comes from this grouping and is unconditionally guaranteed to be original and from the Kehlstein mountain house.

AHSILVER #41234C Adolph Hitler Three Piece Formal Pattern Dinner Knife, Fork, and Spoon

This set of three AH Formal pattern flatware utensils originally came together to me and I would like to sell them as a single unit. They have been in the collection of a another collector for a number of years and he has decided to part with them. He did originally purchase them from me, and if memory serves me correctly, the grouping at war's end was given to a fellow WWII general by Eisenhauer. The person I bought them from originally was close with this general, and the general gave the set to him. I can't prove any of this, but this was the story and there was no reason to disbelieve it, as each piece in this set is 100% original and is in near full mint and their respective conditions all flow together.

The knife is the 8 1/2 length type with perfect blade having 100% of the original cross grain in the surfaces. The fork is the 7 1/2 inch length having perfect tines on the end. The beautiful tea spoon is a 6 inch length with totally perfect bowl.

Each of the utensils is equipped with handles featuring the Greek chain link pattern around the edges. The lower handle obverse surfaces depicts the raised Political eagle with half-open wings and clutching a wreathed immobile swastika, Hitler's initials, "A" and "H", appear on the left and right side of the wreath respectively. Absolute perfect detail throughout these depictions. Each utensil is hallmarked with the Bruckmann-used crescent, Imperial crown, "800" and a Prussian eagle.

A fabulous original three-piece set here that has always been together, so it is best that it stays together. For those out there that tell me all of the time they would like to acquire an AH knife, fork and spoon, this grouping is ready made for you..

One side has a conventional spout and the other is equipped with an ear-shaped handle. The Boat is attached to an matching oval silvered plate below.

Both the Boat and the attached plate measure 10 inches in length. At the left side edge of the Boat is embossed-rolled a Political Eagle with half-opened wings and clutching a wreathed immobile swastika. The detail is amazing. Hitler's initials, "A" and "H", appear to the left and right of the wreath respectively. The boat and accompanying plate are in beautiful, mint condition. The piece is hallmarked, of course, by the Wellner firm.

A superb conditioned original example here. Imagine the conversations and history that took place within earshot of this rare artifact!

AHSILVER #41237C Adolf Hitler Serving Bowl

The Bowl measures 8 1/2 inches at the top rim. The rim is rolled. At each side of the Bowl are matching handles. The accompanying lid has a rim around it which exactly meets the bowl rim for a tight fit. The lid rises upward having a round, door knob-shaped handle at the top center.

On the left side edge of the bowl it is rolled-embossed with the Party eagle with half open wings and clutching a wreathed immobile swastika. Hitler's monogram is on either side of the wreath respectively. The bottom of the Bowl is hallmarked, "Wellner, 140 cl, 42".

AHSILVER #41191 AH Informal Pattern Bullion Spoon

This Informal Pattern Spoon is a fairly tough one to find. It measures 5 ½ inches long and remains in perfect condition. There are no hots to the bowl and the handle is as clean as a whistle. This spoon has a lovely, even patination that, in my opinion, should not be cleaned.

The piece is mostly plain in design, bearing only a raised eagle clutching wreathed immobile swastika flanked by Hitler’s initials, “A” and “H”.

The reverse has the usual Bruckmann hallmarks; a crescent, a crown, "800", and an eagle.

A very fine piece of Informal Pattern silver here.

On the left side of the boat is an Political eagle clutching a wreathed immobile swastika, flanked on either side by Hitler's initials, "A" and "H". There is some very minor wear on the swastika, so apparently this boat was used quite frequently.

A great opportunity to acquire a very rare piece of AH table wear. These boats were produced by the famous Wellner firm.

Excellent Plus, Plus. $4,995.00

AHSILVER #41212C AH Formal Pattern Gravy Ladle

The lower handle is decorated with a raised 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 detailing throughout the design is outstanding.

The reverse of the ladle has the Bruckmann hallmarks of a crescent, a crown, "800", and an eagle.

An extremely fine and desirable piece of Formal Pattern here, and definitely a key piece for a collection.

AHSILVER #41210C Autographed AH Photo in Silver Dedicated Frame

This photograph is a wonderful example by Heinrich Hoffmann of Munich, whose signature appears on the lower left. The photo depicts Hitler looking to the viewer's left, with his usual stern expression. His face looks to have been lit and the shot was taken against a dark background, all for dramatic effect. Due to the age some of the silvering from the processing has accumulated around the edges, but this merely adds character to the image. The whole affair measures 10 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches.

The photo is autographed in ink by Hitler; there is no doubt that this signature is 100% authentic.

The photo is mounted in a very fine, deeply patinated silver frame that measures about an inch wide. On the lower area is the dedication, "IM KRIEGSJAHR 1940". 1940 was a good year for the Party, so extravagances such as this photo and frame were to be expected.

I suspect this example was given to someone go importance to either Hitler or the Party, as autographed studio images of this nature are hardly commonplace. The frame is hallmarked but it is difficult to read. I can make out what looks to be a diamond with the letters "FLE", but that's about all I can see. The reverse of the frame is covered in red leather and is fitted with a stand and a hanging bracket. Four small silver clips act to retain the backing.

If you have ever desired an autographed period photo of one of the most infamous characters in history, this is your chance. This piece has real "wow" factor.

AHSILVER #40960C Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Table Spoon

This Reichskanzlei Spoon is in very fine condition and measures just about 6 inches long.

The surfaces are plain, except for the lower hand which is stamped with the Reichskanzlei eagle and wreathed immobile swastika.  To the left and right of the wreath respectively, are the initials, "R" and "K", which, of course, stand for Reichskanzlei.

The reverse of the spoon is marked "Wellner".

A fine item here, and extremely rare.

AHSILVER #40942 Small China Dish from Mooslahnerkopf Teehaus

This beautiful China Dish is oval and measures 8 inches by 6 inches. It is a very fine Nymphenburg piece and is marked with their trademark and a Bavarian crown on the bottom.

The dish is quite simple being pure white with a finely gilded rim. In the center is a beautiful gold flower design, which has what looks like little tulips between each of the petals. This is the Nymphenburg pattern used in the Mooslahnerkopf Teehaus. This teahouse was built at Obersalzburg when it was discovered the "mighty" Führer was scared out his his lederhosen at the altitude, the winding road, the potential for bad weather, the thin mountain air AND the lift ride leading to the famous Eagle's Nest!

The consignor states that his father worked at the Pentagon and was given this piece, along with others, by a veteran. This is an absolutely 100% original item.

Mint. $995.00

AHSILVER #40941C Small Silvered AH Plate

This AH Plate measures 6 ½ inches around. it has a lower dip in the center with edges that flare up to a final fluted edge. The fluting is separated by ribbon-like designs which appears at 3 inch intervals.

On the first, "higher" segment of the plate is a rolled Political eagle, with half-open wings and wreathed static swastika. To the left and right of the wreath respectively are Hitler's initial "A" and "H".

The reverse of the plate is stamped "Wellner" and "12", which is most likely the model number.

I'm not sure what this plate was used for but it is beautifully constructed and obviously quite rare. A fine AH piece here.

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 Fόhrer'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-tight and complete with a cedar liner to keep the tobacco contents from drying out. 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 Fόhrer. 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 #39852C AH Silver Cigar Cutter

The AH Cigar Cutters are among the most cherished of all the AH silver pieces that were made during the period. This piece comes from the Berghof in Berchtesgaden, and has an accompanying letter with brief history of how it was acquired by a gun dealer in July of 1982. The letter provides the name of the veteran from whom the cutter was purchased from, and lists several other pieces this vet brought home.

It is my belief that there were probably about a dozen of these cutters made. From what I can gather they were all made for use in Berchtesgaden and vicinity.

This cutter is a beauty, measuring just about 7 inches. Like the AH cutlery this piece is bordered in a Greek Key pattern, which appears on each side. At the lower area of the obverse handle is a Political Eagle with half-opened wings clutching a wreathed immobile swastika. The initials "A" and "H" can been seen to the left and the right of the wreath, respectively.

The silver finish is still in perfect condition on the obverse. The reverse has a couple of minor marks near the bottom, but nothing bad. The edges of the cutter are smooth throughout. At the upper handle are the standard AH pattern hallmarks; a crescent, a Prussian crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle. The cutter itself is also hallmarked with a circle and projecting arrows. The end of the cutter is fitted with a funnel-like device that accepts a cigar and the blade would have cut the smoking notch.

The cutter resides in a fine, professionally made mahogany box. This box is lined in red velvet and recessed to accommodate the cutter. It has double hinges and a matching brass catch.

This cutter has been in the possession of a collector I’ve known for 30 years and since his passing his family is willing to part with this treasure and offer it to the collecting community. If you are a serious AH silver collector I would think that an original cigar cutter would be a must. I personally lusted for one for many years! I think that these cutters could be viewed as a good investment as they are very beautiful and never fail to raise the eyebrows of a the viewer. A great item here, and 100% original.

AHSILVER #39229C Adolf Hitler Formal Pattern Oyster Fork

This Adolf Hitler Formal Pattern Oyster Fork are more rare than the other pieces in this pattern; naturally they would have only been used if oysters were being served.

The Oyster Fork measures 5 1/2 inches long. They resemble a small table spoon with short fork tines at the end; a "spork", as it were.

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 Oyster Fork is hallmarked with a crescent, an Imperial crown, "800", and a Prussian eagle.

This piece was liberated directly from the Berghof by a member of the 1269th Engineers. These men were among the first to arrive at the Berghof, charged with the unenviable task of clearing mines and booby traps.

A very scarce piece of Adolf Hitler Formal Pattern silver here.

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.

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 #39813C Adolf Hitler Autographed and Dated Silver Framed Photograph

This outstanding and very rare photograph features Hitler who is believed to be viewing the launch of the Bismarck-class battleship Tirpitz on 1 April 1939.

Standing next to Hitler is Admiral Raeder and behind him is an unidentified Admiral. Both officers are wearing great coats, admiral rank peaked caps, and full dress brocade belts suspending Naval dirks. Forming a protective line at the right of the dignitaries is a grouping of SS personnel and other invited observers. The Führer is also dressed in a great coat, with an armband and his peaked cap. At the right bottom of the photograph is a blue pen and ink signature of Adolf Hitler, and below is the date 10 April 1939. This photo is dated the day Hitler signed it, rather than the day of the launch ten days earlier.

The photo in original silver frame measures 6 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches. Along the top edge of the frame, it is stamped, "925" and has the German silver hallmarks of a crescent and the imperial crown. The reverse has a Masonite-like, wood-grained backing with hinged standing brace. The backing is retained by two small silver pinned sleeves.

A very rare opportunity here to acquire a seldom-offered original Hitler signature on a photograph witnessing an important historical occasion.

AHSILVER #39748C 5 Piece AH Coffee/Tea Service

This five piece AH Coffee/Tea service most likely comes directly from the Berghof and has a beautiful, finest quality silver finish. The set consists of a tea pot, a coffee pot, a creamer, a sugar bowl and a serving tray.

The tea pot measures approximately 7 inches tall and 10 across at the widest point. It has a hinged lid and a larger, lower area that flares outward. The lid is topped with a fine knob. The handle of the tea pot is an ear-shaped affair that has a slight flair at the top to act as a thumb hold. The spout is conventionally shaped. The left side is of the pot is roll-engraved with a Political eagle and Hitler’s monogram. This beautiful bird looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a highly detailed wreath set with an immobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are Hitler’s initials "A" and "H", respectively. The bottom of the pot is stamped "Wellner", as well as with the capacity "150 cl". Below this is "35" in a circle, being the model number of the tea pot.

The coffee pot is slightly larger than the tea pot, being about 11 inches tall and measuring ten inches across at the widest point. This beautiful pot has a hinged lid topped with a knob and a large, ear-shaped handle with an integral thumb hold. The long spout is conventionally shaped. There are two small dings on this pot, above and below the spout. They are very minor and do not show from the front.

The left side is of the pot is roll-engraved with a Political eagle and Hitler’s monogram. This beautiful bird looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a highly detailed wreath set with an immobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are Hitler’s initials "A" and "H", respectively. The bottom of the pot is stamped "Wellner", as well as with the capacity "170 cl". Below this is "39" in a circle, being the model number of the pot.

The creamer is 5 inches and 7 inches wide from spout to handle. The spout is cut into the lip of the creamer and the handle is the ear-shaped, again with the flared thumb hold.

The left side is of the creamer is roll-engraved with a Political eagle and Hitler’s monogram. This beautiful bird looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a highly detailed wreath set with an immobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are Hitler’s initials "A" and "H", respectively. It is interesting to note that the eagle and monogram used on this piece is slightly smaller than that used on the coffee and tea pots. The bottom of the creamer is stamped "Wellner", as well as with the capacity "50 cl". Below this is "16" in a circle, being the model number of the piece. This creamer is in pristine condition.

The sugar bowl is about 8 inches tall and 8 ½ inches at the widest point. Each of the two handles has a flared thumb hold. The lid is removable and a rim to seal it off. The bowl looks to be in nearly perfect condition, with just a couple of minor scratches on the lid. This is to be expected, given that the lid was constantly being taken on an off. The lower portion of the bowl is marked "Wellner", as well as with the capacity, "75 cl". Below this is "22" in a circle, being the model number of this piece.

The entire service sits on a tray which appears to have been made expressly for this purpose. The tray is oval in shape and, at the widest point, measures about 19 inches. It is made with a flared and bordered lip. This tray shows little evidence of wear and is in mint concealing. The tray is roll-engraved with a Political eagle and Hitler’s monogram. This beautiful bird looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a highly detailed wreath set with an immobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are Hitler’s initials "A" and "H", respectively. This monogram is similar in size to that seen on the creamer and sugar bowl. The tray is marked "Wellner" and has a model number of "75" in a circle.

This set has been cleaned recently and looks very impressive laid on on the tray. Over the years I have have a number of these pieces for sale but this set contains the first coffee pot I’ve ever had to offer. The sight of this rare piece is a real pleasure.

A very rare opportunity here to acquire a complete set used in the Berghof and was absolutely the property Hitler. There were probably about a half a dozen of these sets made for use to the Berghof, making a full set very rare. This set has been owned for many years by a retired doctor who is know giving the collecting community the chance to enjoy it. If you are a serious collector this set will easily be a highlight to your collection and, in my opinion, an outstanding investment.

The Grape Snips are among the rarest of all AH pieces; obviously not many of these were made as there would be, at most, only one pair at a given table.

This example is in outstanding condition, being in the Informal Pattern. This pattern features a plain Political eagle with half-opened wings and a plain wreath with an immobile swastika. The initials "A" and "H" appear on the left and right side of the wreath, respectively.

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.
