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 #46092C AH Small Asparagus Server

This asparagus server is very delicate being formed in the shape of one asparagus spear and having three rings attached for thumb and figures to work the utensil.

The utensil measures 5 inches in length and has the shape of the ends of asparagus at the tip of both sides. This example is hinged. It is also marked Wellner and additionally has a political eagle with half open wings clutching a static swastika and the initials AH on other side which are rolled into the surface prior to being formed.

This is an absolute original utensil and the only one that I have seen. It is an ultra rare highly desirable piece.

AHSILVER #45890C Adolf Hitler Personal Dual Ink Well Desk Piece

This AH Inkwell has to be one of the grandest items I have had over the years. It is quite a beautiful piece with its pure art deco look of the period. The piece does not appear to have been cleaned for many years and therefore has an attractive appearance for we as collectors. The piece measures 14 7/8 inches in length and is 2 5/8 inches wide. At the top of each end of the piece is a squared hinged lid over the inkwell, measuring 2 6/8 inches X 2 6/8 inches. The inkwells are 2 1/2 inches high. The lids are contained in place with a piano-style hinge. Each lid is engraved around its edge with the Greek Chain Link style we see on table and desk items used at the Berghof. Centered on the lid of each well is a raised Political Eagle with half-open wings, clutching a wreath containing an immobile swastika. The detail to the eagle design is outstanding. On each side of the wreath respectively, are Hitler's initials, "AH". The center structure of the piece is fluted lengthwise in order to accommodate resting ink-style pens. It is interesting to note that the two ink wells have a four stage stacked appearance which blends in perfectly with the fluted tray design. Each lid opens to reveal the pen dipping hole countersunk below. The sealed areas below the lid caps are brighter tone silver due to them being protected from the elements.

Studying the surfaces throughout the piece with a loupe, there are many signs of usage and small scratches here and there. The deep recesses around the Party eagles show much age and patination. The two inkwell bottom surfaces also show much wear and usage signs and both are slightly pushed-in in places, suggesting much usage. The bottom of one of the wells is deeply stamped with the name of one of Hitler's favorite jewelers being "Wellner". Beneath the hallmark is the typical German silver marks we are all familiar with being a crescent, a crown and the silver content percentage being "850".

It would be remarkable if a period photo of Hitler could be located seated at one of his desks where this inkwell is visible. I am busy looking, but to date, have not found this elusive picture. There must be one out there someplace, and when it is found, it would add great provenance and importance to this outstanding original piece. Perhaps this will be the job of the next owner.

One of our collector friends has done some great research regarding the AH inkwell set we are offering. After a very diligent search of AH material, he was able to view some of well-known Eva Braun home movies which she shot at the Berghof. There are two different scenes where an inkwell appears at a table which was located in front of the Berghof's famous folding window overlooking the mountains.

The picture below show the inkwell when the window was open. The other image (inset in the upper right) shows the inkwell when the window was closed. From the photos, it appears that the inkwell we have was mounted on a base that contained two pens. So, apparently when this inkwell was liberated, only the upper silver portion of it was included. Perhaps the base was wood or some other material, but alas, we will never know. I am sure the silver upper part was what attracted the original liberation. Although, we can not be absolutely sure this is the piece, I believe that there are enough characteristics in these photos to identify it as the well we are offering. Note that the ink blotter is also next to the well. absolutely identifying it as an inkwell. This ensemble was probably positioned at this point in the Berghof, where visitors could sign-in, or perhaps it was just a place where something could be written down if need be.

We will continue to look for other pictures that are more definitive, but honestly, I think we do have the exact piece shown here in Eva's home movies..

A remarkable piece of one-of-kind history here. Imagine the documents, letters and orders signed using the pens that rested in this artifact. Because of the Greek chain link pattern design and the style of the Political eagle and monogram, I feel that the inkwell was used at the Berghof. I am sure that Hitler would have had at least one main office at the Berghof, and perhaps one or two smaller offices placed for convenience - it was a large chalet. So, let's all scour those Berghof pictures we may have in our collections and perhaps a photo will turn up. I would offer a good reward to the collector that discovers a picture!

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 #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 #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 #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.

This Dessert Wine Glass is crafted from fine crystal and in a conventional, tall shape. It measures just over 7 inches tall and remains in perfect condition.

It was part of the Berghof dinner service. 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.

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.
