DRSILVER #39869 Deutsche Reichsbahn Silvered Alpaca Cup from Göring Train

This beautiful little cup measures about 4 inches across. It is is silver placed and is marked “Alpaca” on the bottom, the word the Germans used from nickel silver. It also has a Bruckmann Locomotive “B” trademark, and “241”. 241 was the number assigned to the Göring Dining Car.

The cup is in extremely nice condition, with a lip at the top and smooth around the edges. It is marked with a Deutsche Reichsbahn Railway eagle. This bird looks to the left and clutches a wreathed mobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are the initials “D” and “R”, respectively.

This cup has little wear, with only minor traces on the edge of the rim.

This cup is the same as the example shown in the James Yannes book “The Special Trains of Hitler, Göring, et al” on page 74. The book shows a cup from Hiter’s train (#244) but the cups are identical except for the train numbers.

A very fine item here that should give much pleasure for the future.

DRSILVER #39886C Deutsche Reichsbahn Porcelain Sugar Bowl

This DR Sugar Bowl is quite small, measuring 3 ½ across and 2 ½ inches high. The bowl is constructed of beautiful white porcelain with a double red rim around the edge.

On the side of the bowl, in matching red, is a Deutsche Reichsbahn Railway eagle. This bird looks to the left and clutches a wreathed mobile swastika. To the left and right of the wreath are the initials “D” and “R”, respectively.

This piece was made by the famous Nymphenburg china company of Bavaria. The piece bears the name and logo of the company. Similar Nymphenburg pieces can be seen in the James Yannes book, “The Special Trains of Hitler, Göring, et al”, on pages 210 through 220.

I don’t know if this bowl has a lid or not. It made not have been necessary to use a lid given that the sugar served during the period was normally cubed.

A very interesting and rare piece here.
