Der Deutsche Hof (also seen as Der Deutscher Hof Hotel on some pieces) was Hitler's favorite hotel and was located in the center of Nuremberg. The Führer always stayed there when he visited this medieval city and it became his headquarters during the Party rallies held each September.

The hotel was so grateful for Hitler's endorsement and consistent presence that it had various flatware and serving pieces produced with the NSDAP symbols and swastikas. These pieces are normally of silver plate.



DEUTSCHERHOF #45203 Deutscher Hof Hotel Cream Pitcher with Lid

This cream pitcher is the larger size which is 5 inches high. It is conventionally shaped with a spout at the left and a ear shaped handle for pouring.

At the upper part is a lid which is hinged. At the top of the lid is a round finial.

The pot tapers downward and at the bottom flares outward. On the left side of the pot it is deeply roll engraved Der Deutscher Hof. On the bottom of the pot it has the customary wreath around a open swastika. This symbol was used on all tableware that was provided in hotels owned by the Nazi Party. Additionally the contents are marked “0,25 l”. There is also the number 863/V engraved on the bottom edge.

This cream pitcher is in nice condition throughout having deep patination and does not appear to have been ever cleaned. When the lid of the pitcher is opened the inside still has the original shiny silver finish.

A nice time here.

DEUTSCHERHOF #45204 Deutscher Hof Hotel Sugar Bowl

This sugar bowl is the first example that I have had from the Deutscher Hof and I think that it is quite rare. It measures 6 inches high and is equipped with a hinged domed lid. At the top of the lid if a round finial for opening.

The pot has a deep rich dark patina throughout and it does not appear that it has been cleaned since the war. When the lid is opened in the inside of the pot still displays its shiny silver finish. It is interesting also that at one edge of the pot there is a bracket that is attached that is cut out for the acceptance of a sugar spoon.

The pot tapers downward and flares outward at the bottom. It is equipped with an ear shaped handle one each side. The bowl is marked on the left side “Der Deutsche Hof”. On the bottom it has the round wreath which contains a open swastika inside. We see this marking on serving pieces used by hotels that were owned by the Nazi Party. The bowl is also marked with the content amount “0.30”. Additionally it is marked “47”.

A rarely seen example here and if you're collecting Deutsche Hof Hotel serving pieces this item should be a key collectible.

Excellent. $350.00

DEUTSCHERHOF #43008C Der Deutscher Hof Tea Pot

This small Tea Pot is a single cup type. It is different from the other Deutscher Hof types, being produced by Wellner and not Gebruder Hepp as they typically are.

The pot measures 4 ½ inches tall, with a hinged lid and knob handle. Of course there is the usual spout and handle. Deeply stamped into the left edge is "Der Deutscher Hof".

The bottom is marked "Wellner - Soehne / 20cl", being the maker and the capacity.

An appealing, high quality item here. The Wellner examples might have been used for special occasions. This is the first of this type I've seen.

DEUTSCHERHOF #39414 Der Deutscher Hof Hotel Five Piece Flatware Set

This set of DH flatware consists of a knife, a fork, a spoon, a fish knife and fish fork. These examples do show some wear, but they are rarely seen and very desirable. Each piece is marked on the front with a wreathed mobile swastika. The reverse of each is marked “BSF 100 PLATURA”. This indicates the pieces are silver plated. Each is also marked “Der Deutschser Hof”.

This silverware was ordered after the hotel was purchased by the Party in 1937, to reflect the new “political status” of the establishment. A fine opportunity to acquire a rarely seen full set of period flatware with a strong connection to history of the Party.

Excellent. $995.00

DEUTSCHERHOF #39416 Deutsche Hof Dinner Knife & Fork

This DH Dinner Knife & Fork were used in the dining service of the hotel. They show signs of mild use but are quite desirable just the same.

Both pieces are in excellent condition. Each is marked with a wreathed swastika on the front and “BSF 100 PLATURA” on the reverse. This indicates these pieces are silver plated.

DEUTSCHERHOF #37127 Deutscher Hof Ice Cream Spoon

This DH Ice Cream Spoon are very long, measuring over 8 inches long. The spoon itself is about the size of a teaspoon, but with a long handle. Today we would probably think of this as an iced tea spoon or something to that effect. While the Germans are known to enjoy a good “teetied” I'm not sure they took it cold.

These spoons are plain on the obverse. The reverse is marked, in a rectangle, “Hotel Deustcher-Hof Nürnberg”. The spoon is also marked with the maker mark “Wellner Sohne 24”. The “24” would probably indicate that the spoon is silver plated.

A very nice item here, and a great artifact to add to a collection of Deustcher Hof silver.
