DRSILVER #40323 Deutsche Reichsbahn Dinner Fork from Hitler's Dining Car

This large Dinner Fork measures 8 inches long. It has a plain design with the edges of the handle being nicely beveled. On the lower portion of the handle is a raised DR eagle, looking to the viewer's left and clutching a wreathed swastika. To the left and right of the wreath respectively are the initials of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, "D" and "R".

The reverse of the fork is hallmarked with a crescent, a crown, "800", and a an eagle. To the right of this hallmark is the stamping "244", which was the number of Hitler's dining car.

A very rare piece of silver here, and quite desirable.

DRSILVER #40273 Embroidered Linen Napkin from the Göring Train

This very lovely Napkin is in full mint condition and is ultra-rare, being ht first of the type I've ever seen.

The napkin measures 13 inches by 13 inches and is constructed of the absolute finest linen. It is an off-white color, with an embroidered border about an inch in from the edges. To the right of the border is a very fine satin edge trim which adds some contrast.

In the center of the napkin is an embroidered Railway eagle. This bird looks to the viewer's left and clutches a wreathed swastika. The detailing to this embroidery is simply unreal. To the left and right of the wreath are the initials "D" and "R" respectively.

What is really fantastic about this napkin (and completely proves the pedigree) is the number "241" embroidered in white thread on the bottom left corner. Car #241 was no other than Göring's dining car!

A wonderful item here that is almost unique. We see the AH napkins from time to time but the Göring examples are much, much more rare. An extremely rare and beautiful item here.

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.

Further, the handle is stamped, "205" which was the dining car assigned to Göring. A very rare piece of flatware here, as there were really not many seats at the table of a railway car!
