AHSILVER #36324 Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Dinner Fork

This Reich Chancellery Dinner Fork would have been used in the Chancellery either for formal or informal meals; I am not exactly sure in which capacity this piece was used, but its authenticity cannot be questioned. A typical four tined piece, this fork features a delicate, narrow stem that flares out to a wider handle section, with a nicely raised edge; a nicely detailed Politcal Eagle can be seen clearly stamped here. On the reverse of the handle can be seen the marking, in stylized block letters, "Kanzlei Des Führers", while the reverse stem bears the marking, "Bruckmann 90". An excellent example of AH silver here, despite the minor mystery!

AHSILVER #36323 Reichskanzlei (Reich Chancellery) Cake Fork

This Reich Chancellery Cake Fork measures a little over 6 inches. It has three prongs with the left prong being wider than the other two and the tip cut on an angle which indicates it is for cake. The format of the utensil is plain throughout with a rolled edge. Stamped at the bottom of the handle is an open-winged political eagle which looks to the right. The eagle clutches a wreath with swastika. The detail throughout the bird is excellent. On the reverse of the fork at the lower area it is stamped in three lines, “KANZLEI / DES / FÜHRERS”. It is stamped further up with the maker name and silver plated content, “Bruckmann 90”. A rarely seen utensil here used in the Reich Chancellery.

AHSILVER #36292 AH Silvered Beer/Drink Tray

This AH Drink Tray is the first of its type that I have seen. Normally we see the long, medium and shorter oval trays. This example looks like it was most likely meant for the carrying of drink and beer glasses. The tray appears to be a nickel base with a silver plate. It is 14 inches in diameter and has an inch and a quarter rim to protect items from falling off of it. At one lower area of the tray there is the open-winged political eagle which grasps a oak leaf wreath in its talons which contains an immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath is the Führer’s monogram “AH” respectively.

On the other portion of the lower tray is the maker mark, “AWS” and then beneath that the word in a rectangle border “Silwello”. Both of these trays are in excellent condition showing some usage of the period. These trays originally came directly from a veteran who is pictured in the description carrying a couple of AH monogrammed wine glasses. A great item here that you can use at your bar or also a key piece if you are collecting AH silver and tableware.

AHSILVER #36284 AH Informal Pattern Demitasse Spoon

This AH Informal Pattern Demitasse Spoon is part of the three piece dessert set used at the Berghof for luncheons. The spoon measures a mere 7¼ inch length and is quite elegant. The informal pattern is very plain having no extra engravings or borders and featuring a half open-winged political eagle clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. The eagle is plain on the surface with no relief. Next to the wreath is the Führer’s monogram, “AH”.

The reverse of the informal pattern is marked the same as any other AH flatware having the crescent, Prussian crown, “800” and a Prussian eagle stamped into the reverse. This piece shows no wear at all.

Near Mint. $1,195.00

AHSILVER #36286 AH Informal Pattern Dessert Fork

This AH Informal Pattern Dessert Fork is a beauty being only 5¾ inches in length. It has no embellishment throughout the border or any accent lines having only the raised half open-winged political eagle clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. On either side of the wreath is the Führer’s monogram “AH”.

Stamped into the reverse is the crescent, lantern, “800” and a Prussian eagle. This dessert fork would have been used with the demitasse spoon and small dessert knife. A beauty here.


Near Mint. $1,195.00

AHSILVER #36285 AH Informal Pattern Dessert Knife

This AH Informal Pattern Dessert Knife measures 6½ inches in length. The handle of the knife is completely plain having the raised half open political eagle clutching a wreath with immobile swastika. On either side of the swastika respectively is the monogram of the Führer “AH”. The eagle is the plain style with no relief to the pattern. If you are not familiar with the informal pattern it can be seen in the James Yannes silverware book on page 38. This knife is hallmarked at the flare point where the blade is fitted into the handle. It is marked the same as the other silver pieces being a crescent, Prussian crown, “800” and a Prussian eagle.

The blade is a beauty having all of its original grain and it is also etched with a triangular-like design having the wording, “Nicht / Rostend”. Above the wording is a “W” which probably stands for Wellner who most likely made the blades for Bruckmann the actual producer of this flatware. This dessert knife was used in conjunction with a small fork and demitasse spoon.

AHSILVER #35932 AH Cocktail Shaker

This AH Cocktail Shaker is 5 inches high with a 3 inch rim. It is WFM marked and appears to be a nickel base with silver plated outside. The inside of the shaker is all gilded. Rolled onto the front edge of the shaker is the half open-winged political eagle which looks to the viewer’s left and clutches a swastika in an immobile position. The Führer’s initials are on either side of the wreath being “AH” respectively.

The shaker at one time had a top which would have restrained the ice as well as the liquor when the cocktail was being mixed. We are currently trying to locate a period top but so far without success. This cocktail shaker is marked on the bottom, “Württ. Metallw. Fabrik / Beislingr-Steige”. Additionally there are the markings, “NS”, “FMF” and the numeral ”8”. This is a most interesting AH artifact coming from the Reich silver service. Can you imagine being able to mix a martini from the Führer’s cocktail shaker! A very rare item here!

AHSILVER #35931 Porcelain Plate Depicting Haus Wachenfeld

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

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

Mint. $795.00

AHSILVER #35815 AH Formal Pattern Demitasse Spoon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AHSILVER #34877 Bavarian Pewter Plate presented to Adolf Hitler

This elegant and extremely well-made plate measures 10 inches round. The center of the plate has a smooth surface, and is curved downward with a flat surface. The border edge of the plate measures about 2½” in width, and the edge is completely lined around its circumference. Raised out of the edge all around the plate are the different cities and crests, which are located in Bavaria. They include the cities of Deggendorf, Bamberg, Hof, Koburg, Bayreuth, Regensburg, Weiden, Amberg, Furth, Landshut, Straubing, Passau. As indicated, above each of the cities, has its respective crest featured below. A very decorative plate here, and extremely well made.

There is an interesting story regarding the wappen, or coat of arms, for the City of Koburg that is depicted on this piece. On the plate the coat of arms rendered for Koburg is that of a knightly blade with a swastika pommel, set against a horizontally divided shield. It seems, however, that this wasn't always the coat of arms for the city. Prior to the NSDAP taking control of Germany, Koberg's device was that of a rather lurid looking Moor, in profile, complete with protruding lips and an immense golden earring! Apparently this unlikely figure was a representation of Saint Mauritius, who had been the patron saint of the city since the Middle Ages. To say that the NSDAP deemed this particular piece of iconography grossly unacceptable would be an understatement, and they quickly replaced the hapless Moor with the more aggressively Teutonic substitute seen on this plate. Saint Mauritius, however, ended up having the last laugh, being reinstated by the city as the official coat of arms in May of 1945, where he and his earring still reside to this day.

On the reverse, the plate is stamped with the maker marking, which consists of a castle-like base over water, with what appears to be a coffee pot or tea kettle on top. This figure is placed over an ellipse, which has the name around it, “REGENSBURG WIEDEMANN”. This was the foundry in Regensburg, which produced the plate, and the plate was given to Hitler by the owner of the factory. On the reverse of the plate, there is a five line dedication, done in beautiful Gothic engraving. It is engraved, “DEM FUHRER und REICHSKANZLER/ABERREICHF von der/ZINNGIETZEREI EUGEN WIEDEMANN/REGENNSBURG/6.JUNI 1937”. This dedication would be translated “To the Fuhrer and Reichkanzler from the tin foundry of Eugene Wiedemann Regensburg on 6 June, 1937”. Obviously, this plate was given to Hitler most likely on a visit paid by industrialists to see Hitler while he was staying in Bavaria. This plate hung in the Munich apartment of Adolf Hitler and was liberated by an 83rd infantry man. This plate was vet purchased by the famous Third Reich artifact hunter, Ben Curtis. I purchased the plate directly from Ben at the latest SOS show. An outstanding item here!

If you have ever wanted something in your collection that was directly presented to Hitler, this is a great representative example. Most of the items that were given to Hitler were destroyed, as they were kept in the Reich Chancellery. At the end of the war, Hitler ordered all of his possessions destroyed. Fortunately, this order did not reach down as far as his items that were still in his apartment in Munich. A great opportunity here to acquire a most interesting and historic piece.

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

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