GOBLETS #35393C Anniversary Presentation Goblet of a National Socialist Comradeship Faternity
There is a silver raised band at the upper area which has twin borders of detailed laurel leaves. In the center of the band is the raised inscription in capital letters, "JUBILÄUMSGABE DER KAMERADSCHAFTLICHEN VEREINIGUNG". The inscription is followed by a mobile, raised swastika.
This roughly translates to, "Anniversary Gift from the Comrade Organization". This was most likely one of the many Police or political organizations that existed in Nazi Germany.
A fine Wellner display goblet.

GOBLETS #35390C Göring-presented Reich Life Saving Award Goblet
This Silver Goblet was a national award for life saving; a most prestigious accolade in Nazi Germany. The impressive goblet is 7 inches high with a wide rim of 4 1/2 inches. There are three resting legs consisting of rounded silver balls attached to the curved bottom of the goblet. The outside rim is decorated with raised overlapping laurel leaves that run around the circumference. The bottom is stamped with the "800" silver content and typical German silver hallmarks.
One side of the goblet contains the description of the award and the other side has the dedication to the winner. The one side is professionally engraved, "EHRENPOKAL/ Des/ Schirmherrn des Reichsbundes/ der in haber der Rettungsmedaille" Below this, is a Göring facsimile signature with Hermann's titles engraved under the signature, "Ministerpräsident/ Generalfeldmarschall". This roughly translates to, "Honor Patron Goblet of the Reich Federation of the Holder of the Rescue Medal". On the opposite side of the goblet are engraved the recipient's details, "Dem SS-Obersturmführer/ Richard Wolf/ zum/ Reichs-Ehrentag/ der/ Lebensretter/ Hannover/ 10. u. 11. 6. 1939". This roughly translates, "Presented to SS-Obersturmführer Richard Wolf on the Reich Day of Live-Saving Rescue, 10 & 11 June, 1939".
Looking up Wolf in the SS Dienstaltersliste, I find that he was a member of the LAH at the time of the award and later, during the war, he was a Waffen-SS commander of the I Regiment 21 of the "SK" Mountain troop. Quite a military career here and a phenomenal beginning to what could easily be a major research effort. This Life-Saving award was just the start of this SS officer's outstanding war record. A great artifact here!

GOBLETS #35391C Silver Presentation Luftwaffe Goblet
This Presentation Silver Goblet is of high quality and measures about 6 inches high with flared throat of 3 1/2 inches. The goblet has four small hallmarks under the upper rim area, which I am quite sure indicate it is a silver piece. The goblet is evenly dark patinated, On the face of the goblet, it is professionally engraved featuring a Luftwaffe eagle flying to the right and grasping a swastika in his talons.
There is a three-line presentation below that mentions the Luftwaffe group, "L.N.S.4.", which is not recognizable to me. There is also the date, "Juni 1941". The rest of the dedication is done in a hand-script style and unfortunately, I am not able to read it. If some knowledgeable collector can recognize the wording and give us a translation, we would be happy to put this in with the description. A beautiful, almost jewelry-like goblet here, which could be of some importance if a translation could be rendered. A fine display piece in untouched condition.

GOBLETS #35392C German Police Fraternal Organization Goblet
This impressive, 6 inch high Presentation Goblet has a 3 1/2 inch rim with a flared bottom of 3 3/4 inches. The goblet has a gold wash interior and appears to be produced of silvered nickel, being marked "Wellner" on the bottom. Applied about an inch down from the rim is a raised silver band which features borders of overlapping leaves. In the center, is the "in memory of" words, as well as the fact that the goblet is a gift, and then the name of the police organization with a raised swastika at the ending, "ERINNERUNGSGABE DES KAMERADSCHAFTSBUNDES DEUTSCHER POLIZEIBEAMTER". The face of the goblet is engraved in capital letters, "DEM POLIZEIPRÄSIDENTEN/ SS-OBERGRUPPENFÜHRER/ KARL FREIHERR VON EBERSTEIN/ ZUR ERINNERUNG/ MÜNCHEN., DEN 3.11.1937".
This is translated as, "Presented to Police president, SS-Obergruppenführer Karl Freiherr von Eberstein in memory of Munich, 3 November, 1937". Most SS and Police collectors are familiar with v. Eberstein as he was a well known and highly placed official, being a personal friend of Himmler. v. Eberstain is pictured in my SS Book on page 115, wearing his Golden Party Badge with his SS uniform. This is a fine SS presentation goblet to an infamous recipient. A fine opportunity to add a center piece to your SS collection.

GOBLETS #35394C Imperial German/Austrian Allliance Gold-to-Silver Goblet
This German/Austrian Alliance Goblet was produced as a gratis gift, to be presented to those from Austria and Germany who gave gold and silver precious medals to help the war effort. The goblet is produced of an iron base, having nickel-plated surfaces. The nickel surfaces show some age and minor lifting here and there. The goblet is 6 inches high, with a 3 inch rim. The inside is gold-washed. Around the upper segment of the cups' outside is an applied gilded ribbon featuring the likeness of Kaiser Wilhelm and Franz Josef with the dates 1914-1916. Also in the ribbon is a slogan giving the importance of the "Iron for Gold" campaign induced to raise war funding by citizens.
The cup also has a professionally rendered script-style dedication with a November 1916 presentation date and a facsimile signature. (I can not read the words because of the old script style, so if there is some one out there that can help, we would be glad to add this information to the description.) An interesting gold-to-iron Great War presentation cup which acts to make the history of these times come alive.
GOBLETS #36417 Silver Honor Goblet Presented by von Schirach for Stamp Collecting
This impressive silver goblet comes from Austria and has Austrian hallmarks stamped on the rim of the base as well as the upper rim. The goblet has a flared bell at the top with a small lined ring in the center and a flared bell at the bottom that acts as the stand. This impressive goblet is about 10 inches high with a 7 inch diameter upper rim. The piece has recently been cleaned has a very fine silver finish.
Engraved around the center body of the goblet is a four line presentation, in block capital letters. The presentation reads, “EHRENPREIS / DES REICHSSTATTHALTERS IN WIEN / ZUM TAG DER BRIEFMARKE 1943 / BALDUR von SCHIRACH”. This presentation reads, “Honor Prize from the Gauleiter in Vienna on the Day of Stamp Collecting 1943 Baldur von Schirach”.
As most collectors know von Schirach was, until 1941, the leader of the Hitler Youth. After that time he was Gauleiter of Vienna. Apparently there was a grouping of stamp collections that may have come under the guise of new or old stamps I do not know but there must have been a contest involved. Perhaps some looking through some old Viennese newspapers could undercover the actual event that this magnificent goblet represented. The goblet is in completely perfect condition; a beautiful display piece here with your collection.

GOBLETS #35932AC Large Honor Prize Silver DLV Goblet
This very large goblet measures 11½ inches high with a 5 inch rim. The goblet is quite striking having on the obverse face a remarkably engraved oak leaf wreath which encloses a soaring eagle which appears to be looking downward in his flight pattern. Above the eagle are the two initials, “DL” and below the eagle is the initial, “V”. The enhancing to both the oak leaves, acorns and the feathers of the bird is really remarkable. The other side of the goblet’s face is engraved with its purpose, “Ehrenbreis / des / Deutschen Luftfahrt Verbandes e.V. / Sachsenflug 1927”.
Obviously this beautiful goblet was presented as an honor award to an outstanding DLV member from the Sachsen flying club in 1927. The goblet sits on two impressive eagles which are standing at the base with their heads forward and wings half opened. The detail throughout these two eagles is extraordinary. The base flares out to a rim which is trimmed with laurel leaves and berries which matches the trim at the lip of the rim above. Stamped into the lower rim is the number, “72650”. Next to this are the German hallmarks of a crescent and a Prussian crown and the silver content, “835”. Next to this are the initials of the jeweler which appears to be “WTB”. A very beautiful silver prize here that would be a real centerpiece for a DLV collection. Although this piece predates the Third Reich period it has many similarities especially to the two eagles.

GOBLETS #35934AC Hunting Motif Silver Goblet
This quite beautiful silver goblet is 7 inches high and flares out at the top with a 4½ inch rim. The goblet portrays a hunting scene in which two hunters, dressed in 19th century hunting gear, are aiming rifles at a very large stag which is leaping through a glen. There are dogs tearing at the animal. The scene is in the middle of a forest glen, complete with fir trees and what appear to be oak trees. The scene apparently was hammered out from the inside prior to the shaping of the goblet.
The goblet is marked on the bottom lower area with the crescent and Prussian crown and the silver content, “800”. There is also the symbol of a jeweler next to this hallmarking. Quite a beautiful artifact here and a nice touch with a hunting forestry collection.

GOBLETS #34716C Luftwaffe Honor Goblet
This Luftwaffe Honor Goblet is a most beautiful item still being in perfect condition. It has been cleaned probably not too long ago but is beginning to take on a fine patination. I like the old wax, or whatever was used to clean it years ago, that still remains in many of the crevices. These goblets measure a little over 8 inches in height and the lip is a diameter of about 4 inches. This Honor Goblet depicts on one side an eagle attacking another bird which is upside down in the air. The symbolism here of course reflects the dangers of the air fighter pilot. The opposite side of the goblet depicts the raised out Iron Cross having fine serrations, raised swastika in the center and the date, “1939” on the bottom leg. At the lower neck portion of the goblet above the flared stand are double rows of oak leaves with acorns. The detail is outstanding throughout these leaves.
The entire goblet has a beautiful peened surface which is subtle but adds great artistry to the piece. Around the lower rim, beneath the oak leaves, is the name and date of the recipient, “FELDWEBEL HELMUTH LEUBNER AM 2.11.42”. Raised out around the lower rim is the purpose of the award, “FÜR BESONDERE LEISTUNG IM LUFTKRIEG”. This of course translates to “Outstanding Performance in the Air War”. The lower inside portion of this goblet is stamped, “Feinsilber / Alpaca / Auflage” and beneath is the maker name, “Joh. Wagner & Sohn”.
Although this goblet is marked “Alpaca” it is also hallmarked fine silver so I don’t know whether this is a higher quality than the standard Alpaca pieces and maybe less quality than the pieces that may be marked with silver contents. Either way it is in absolute beautiful condition and I’m sure some research could easily be done on the recipient. I’ll leave this up to the next purchaser. What a great exciting piece this would make added to the shelf where you house other Luftwaffe memorabilia. Extremely decorative and a most important looking war trophy.
