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 #49101 Der Deutsche Hof Small Knife

This small knife is mostly like a dessert knife, or possibly the very bland German idea of a jam knife. Collectors have taken to calling any small utensil a "demitasse", but this is as stupid as it is wrong.

It measures 6 ⅞ inches long, with a separate stainless steel blade. The blade is marked GG. Leykauf Nuremberg and also Rostfrei.

The handle is smooth and plain, marked "Der Deutsche Hof". On the reverse is the usual swastika in a circle.

A nice piece here.

Excellent Plus. $195.00

DEUTSCHERHOF #46149 Der Deutsche Hof Dinner Fork

This dinner fork is fairly simple in design, with some subtle scalloping and beveling. It measures about 8 inches long, with four straight tines.

The end of the obverse handle is marked with the usual wreathed swastika seen on this type of piece. The detail throughout this embellishment remains clear and crisp. The surface of the fork shows quite a bit of honest wear, which I supposed is to be expected from a common fork given that it undoubtedly saw much more usage than the more exotic utensils.

The reverse of the fork is marked "BSF 100", "Platura", and "Der Deutsche Hof".

A nice example here.

Excellent. $195.00

DEUTSCHERHOF #42999C Hotel Deutscher Hof Fish Knife & Fork

The reverse of the utensils are marked "Hotel Deutscher Hof / Nüremberg". Additionally they are maker marked "Wellner Soehne / 90", the latter indicating that they are silver plated.

A nice set of utensils here.

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 #37129 Deustcher 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.

Excellent Plus. $175.00
