GOBLETS #42340C Silver Luftwaffe Honor Goblet
This Luftwaffe Honor Goblet is in excellent condition throughout, with no dings or problems. It has a hammered finish, and depicts a pair of fighting eagles on one side. The opposite side has a raised depiction of the Iron Cross, complete with swastika and serrated legs.
Around the lower area of the goblet there is a row of overlapping oak leaves and acorns which run around the circumference. The lower lip of the goblet ireads, "FÜHRER BESONDERE LIESTUNG IM LUFTKRIEG". This translates to something like "For Outstanding Achievement in the Air War".
Above this is the name of the original recipient, "Oberfeldwbel Karl Müller - am 21.3.41". I don't have any information about this man but I believe that he could probably be researched, as he did receive this goblet.
The bottom of the goblet is hallmarked "Joh, Wagner & Sohn", along with the hallmarks of a crescent, a crown, "835", and a Prussian eagle. The silver hallmarked examples are very desirable as the later examples were produced of cheaper Alpaca.
A very fine Luftwaffe example here.
Near Mint. $5,500.00
GOBLETS #35393C Anniversary Presentation Goblet of a National Socialist Comradeship Fraternity
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.
Near Mint. $1,000.00
