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.
