The below table service comes from Castle Klessheim. This castle was located over the border from Obersalzberg, looking over the border from Obersalzberg in Austria. Many of the dignitaries, that were waiting to see Hitler, were housed at Kleissheim, as it was not far from the Burghof. This castle was maintained as a government residence, and therefore, had its own flatware pattern that was used for meal service. The below pieces come directly from Kleissheim, and they bear the markings of the Arthur Krupp firm, located in Berndorff. These pieces are silver plate, and they are marked on the reverse “50” and “90”. I believe that the “90” marking, found on silver plate, designates that 10% of the material was the silvering, and the “90” would have been a mixture of metals for the base material.



KLESSHEIM #46568 Castle Klessheim Cheese Knife

This cheese knife is a most interesting item having the standard handle length of a knife and then a small blade on the end that is especially designed for slicing cheese. There is a factory hole in the center of the blade which apparently was done to let air into the section where the cutting is occurring.

The handle is a nicely shaped type with a hand hold jutting outward slightly in the center and several raised accent lines where the blade fits in.

The knife overall is 6 inches in length. Although it is unmarked this example was produced by the Arthur Krupp company. The blade is in perfect mint condition with all its grain and is marked rostfrei. The end of the handle is engraved with the special Klessheim style political eagle having half open wings with wreath and mobile swastika.

A very interesting example here.

KLESSHEIM #28313FC Castle Klessheim Cheese Knife

This small dinner knife is unmarked, but it is definitely produced by the Art. Krupp company of Berndorf, as it came with other items marked accordingly. The knife has the regular standard sized handle, with just a very short blade, measuring about 2¼ inches. The blade has a cutting edge, and also is purposely holed at about the one-third portion. This hole may have been a way to relieve pressure if the knife was used for cheese, or something of this nature.

The handle has the standard Klessheim identification, being the Political half closed winged eagle, which looks to the viewer’s left. The bird clutches a plain wreath with mobile swastika. The handle has outstanding black patination. The knife blade is marked with the German word for stainless steel, “Rostfrei”.
