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 #43050 Reichs Chancellory Serving Fork

This Serving Fork is a very impressive utensil, 8 ½ inches long with very large tines. It remains in perfect condition, with a dark, even patina. It does not look to have been cleaned since the war.

This is the first piece I have seen with this type of monogram but I suspect there are others that will eventually come out of the woodwork. An excellent additional to a Third Reich silverware collection here.

AHSILVER #42884C Hitler Haus Frankfurt-Main Luncheon Knife

This 8 ½ inch long Luncheon Knife comes from the "Adolf Hitler Haus Frankfurt-Main". Apparently Hitler had some sort of headquarters at the Gau House in Frankfurt-Main, and these utensils must have been used therein.

AHSILVER #42995C 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. It is autographed, in ink, by Hitler; there is no doubt whatsoever 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 #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 #42621 Adolf Hitler Monogrammed Wine/Champagne Cooler

This wine cooler appears to me to be a piece that was used by Hitler prior to the time of the government upgrade of his silver and flatware service in 1938. Or, it is possible this cooler may have been used in his apartment of other residences he maintained during the early days of the Party. The cooler is quite large being nine inches high and thirteen inches wide from handle to handle. The opening at the top is round, with a seven and a half inch opening. The cooler appears to be a silver-plated nickel example. Other than one minor ding at the center obverse area, the cooler remains in perfect condition. The vessel is equipped with ear-like handles on each side, and at the bottom are four rounded feet.

Deeply engraved into the obverse surface is a large Party eagle, having half-open wings. The bird's head looks to the viewer's left. Clutched in the talons is an oak-leafed wreath, which contains an immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath, respectively, are Hitler's initials, "AH". The engraving is extremely well done and actually quite large. The entire cooler has a desirable silver patina which slightly lightens around the areas where the engraving was done. This is something we frequently see on old engravings and is most likely caused by air penetrating around the areas that were scored into the metal during the engraving process. The bottom of the cooler is hallmarked with four or five extremely small stampings, but I can't make them out due to the patina and age build-up.

A most interesting piece here that could not only be put on display, or for fun with fellow collectors over for the evening, it certainly would not hurt the cooler to fill it up with some ice and drop in a bottle of Ribbentrop's family champagne that is still being produced today, Henckel Troken.

AHSILVER #42520C AH Monogrammed Dinner Fork

This Dinner Fork measures 7 ½ inches long. All of the tines remain in excellent condition.

The fork has a fine, even pagination and is a simple pattern, with a rim around the edges. At the bottom of the handle is the monogram "AH". The letters are double scribed.

The reverse is marked "Krupp Berndorf / 100 / 33". The "100" indicates silver plating.

This fork is thought to have been perhaps part of the flatware used at an early Hitler residence.

A nice item here, which could be even better with some research.

Excellent Plus. $250.00

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 #42367C 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.

The bowl remains in perfect condition, nicely shaped with a factory tip. The handle is expertly engraved with hand scribed flowers. The monogram "EB" appears in a lined oval, with the letters done in the characteristic "butterfly" style associated with Braun designs.

The reverse of the spoon is hallmarked with "800", a crescent, a crown, and "M". We see a number of different patterns associated with Braun; Albert Speer states in his book that she often received gratis patterns from silver companies. I suppose she was an early example of a "brand ambassador".

AHSILVER #42346C Luncheon Fork from the Brown House

The Brown House was the name given to the Munich mansion located between the Karolinenplatz and Königsplatz, known before as the Palais Barlow, which was purchased in 1930 by the Nazis. They converted the structure into the headquarters of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Hitler felt the Party needed an impressive structure to give his rag-tag band of thugs and reactionaries some credibility, and the Brown House certainly fit the bill. He maintained offices in the Brown House all throughout the period, along with the usual suspects of Göring, Himmler, Goebbels, and Franz Xavier Schwarz. It was bombed flat by the Allies by the end of the war.

This silver fork comes from the Brown House. It measures just over 7 inches long, and relatively plain with only an accent line that runs along both of the edges. The end of the handle flares upward slightly. Deeply incised into the handle is an open, immobile swastika.

The reverse is engraved "Braunes Haus". It is also hallmarked "800", along with a crescent and crown.

This is the first Brown House piece I've seen. I suspect they are extremely rare and as such very desirable.

AHSILVER #42337C Adolf Hitler Formal Pattern Coffee Pot

This most beautiful Coffee Pot is extremely impressive. It measures about 9 inches tall and 11 inches from spout to handle.

The pot has a 4 inch wide opening at the top, capped with a hinged, knobbed lid. The body billows out widely at the bottom, and has a finely curved spout. The handle is a large, ear-shaped affair. Other than a very tiny ding on the right obverse edge this pot is in totally perfect condition.

The obverse center has a detailed, deeply rolled political eagle, with Hitler's initials "A" and "H" to the left and right of the bird respectively. The bird, wreath, and swastika remain extremely crisp and beautifully done.

The bottom of the pot is marked "Wellner", along with the capacity of "170cl". Below this is a model number in a circle, "39".

This is an outstanding piece of AH Formal Pattern here, and would have been used at the Berghof. I have only ever had two of these pots to sell in the past, and this third example is probably the nicest one of all. If you have ever thought of having the best of the best in this great hobby we enjoy, I suggest you consider acquiring this most historic piece.

AHSILVER #42006C Adolf Hitler Photo Portrait in Silver Presentation Frame with Original Cassette Box

This artifact consists of the beautiful silver presentation frame which contains the official Hoffman formal portrait of Adolf Hitler. The frame and photo rest in their original cassette.

The frame measures 13 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches. The frame is smooth on the outside and the inner frame is shaped in three separate inward stages. At the bottom area there is a flat silver insert measuring 8 inches X 1 3/4 inches. The insert is decorated with a Greek Key pattern which runs around the four borders. In the center is an applied Political eagle with head facing to the viewer's left. The bird's wings are open. The long talons of the bird grasp a wreath of oak leaves with a centered and raised immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath respectively are Hitler's initials, "A" and "H".

It is interesting that the eagle'e head faces to the left on this example, as I have seen others where the head faces to the viewer's right. There was disagreement within the Party between Hitler, Hess and others on which direction the Party eagle should face, and it was changed a number of times during the regime, thus the direction of the head on this piece. On the upper frame edge, the stamping of the maker, "FH" over W", appears within a rectangle. Above the maker stamping, in a diamond shape, is the symbolic figure of Munich; a monk with the letters "R" and "S" respectively positioned under the arms. To the left and right of the monk figure is the silver content, ".925". There is a further hallmark which is difficult to discern.

The AH photo itself measures 5 7/8 inches by 7 7/8 inches with a white border of about 1 1/4 inches around three sides of the photo. At the bottom, the white border measures about 2 inches. The photo depicts the Führer in his official Party uniform. He is in a standing position with right arm on his hip and left arm curved around to his front waist area. The photograph is marked on the reverse with the details of the Hoffman photo studio.

The reverse of the frame has a deep red/purple leatherette covering which is hinged at the top and is retained in place by 6 silver screw-held brackets. There is a resting stand which moves outward and stays in place through a cloth strap.

The cassette is covered with red/purple leatherette having good grain and showing modest usage and age. In the center obverse area is an embossed silver Party eagle with half open wings clutching a wreath with mobile swastika. It is also interesting to note that some of these cassette covers will be equipped with gilded embossed eagles on the cover. I do not believe there was any "rank" difference here, but most likely only a reflection of the time the cassette was produced. The inside of the cassette is covered with deep red color velvet. The lower receiving area is recessed to accommodate the hinged stand portion of the reverse of the frame. A couple of the binding areas of the frame edges have split over time, but with proper handling in the future there should be no further damage.

An outstanding original artifact here. I have one in my personal collection and have always treasured its singular beauty and the importance it extends to the rest of my collection room.

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 Führer'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 Führer'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 Airborne 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.

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.

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 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.

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 crescent, Imperial crown, "800" and a Prussian 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.

Near Mint. $1,750.00

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 #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 1/2 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.

AHSILVER #38829C AH Informal Pattern Grape Snips

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, 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. Chances are the flatware factory purchased these components elsewhere.

This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of the most elusive AH pieces. This is the first set I've had the pleasure to offer.
