MISCSILVER #41296C Small Aperitif Glass

This Aperitif Glass was part of a group of items "liberated" from Bormann's residence, the Berghof, and the Kehlsteinhaus.

I suspect this piece comes from the Bormann trove, due to the nature of the etching. Bormann had Political eagle designs on his tableware that was very similar to that seen on this glass.

The glass measures 5 ½ inches tall, with a 2 inch lip. It is finely etched with an open-winged Political eagle clutching a wreathed mobile swastika.

A great opportunity to sip a glass of orange juice from Bormann's former personal property here.

The interior lid is lined in padded white silk. The name and address of the maker, "A. Kanuer / Juweiler / Gergündet 1743 / Hann. Münden", appears on a ribbon in the corner.

This set of flatware is all marked with a open winged eagle and swastika with the eagle's head looking to the left. Beneath the eagle is stamped with abbreviation for the organization "Dh". Each piece of flatware is marked on the reverse with the maker "Br. Henneberg BM (scales) 90". This indicates the flatware is silver plated.

The flatware itself is relatively plain having beveled edges and three stage lines at the bottom of the handle. The pieces are identical to the examples show in the James Yannes book "The Encyclopedia of Third Reich Tableware" page 90.

The set consists of a small demitasse spoon being 4 1/4 inches a 7 inch salad fork a 7 inch dinner spoon and a large 8 inch dinner spoon. All pieces are in nice condition and are quite rare.

I'm sure my translation is missing the nuance; if you are a German speaker please let me know!

Engraved on the opposite side is a skull and oak leaves, with the words “Totenkopf Division”.

A good looking little cup here. It is a little over 3 inches high and 2 inches across the top. It is hallmarked on the bottom.

MISCSILVER #38080C Reich Autobahn Rasthaus Chiemsee Gravy Boat

I never thought I'd use the word "interesting" to describe a Gravy Boat, but this piece proved me wrong. The boat measures about 9 inches across and 3 inches high and comes from the luxurious Chiemsee Rest House.

Chiemsee is a large resort lake in southern Bavaria, handpicked by Hitler to be the site of the first rest stop of the Autobahn system. Never being one to let reality deter him from his whims Hitler demanded that this leg of the Autobahn be diverted to run along the shores of the lake, despite the serious engineering problems involved; the engineers had wanted to run the road on firmer ground, closer to the mountains. After a negotiation that doubtlessly included pistols and piano wire the road was rerouted.

It is a standard gravy boat, with the usual ear-shaped handle and spout. Engraved on the left side of the boat is the insignia of Chiemsee Rest House, being an oval containing a twin-tailed mermaid wearing a pointed crown.

The boat was made by Grebruder Hepp, bearing their stamp in the bottom edge.

This is quite a rare piece of tableware, and a great, original artifact! In it's day the Chemsee Rasthaus was quite a spectacle; who knows what famous and/or infamous characters this boat supplied with delicious Bratensoße!

Dietrich Eckhardt Tableware

This grouping of tableware ware once the property of Dietrich Eckhardt. Eckhardt was a key influence on Hitler during the early years of the NSDAP and a participant in the 1923 Putsch. He was born 23 March, 1886 and died 26 December, 1923 in Berchtesgaden. In addition to being a journalist, playwright, poet, and politician, he began the original Nazi party, the “Deutsche Arbeitpartie”.

He was involved with the Thule Society, a secret group of occultists who believed in the coming of a so-called “German Messiah” who would restore the Vaterland to power on the world stage after the humiliating defeat suffered in the great war. When Hitler gave a speech before the DAP members in 1919, Eckhardt was enthralled; he had apparently found the “Messiah” he and his cult had been waiting for. He became Hitler's mentor and was instrumental in shaping both Hitler and the ideologies of the nascent Nazi Party.

Shortly after participating in the Putsch he died of a heart attack. He was buried in the Old Cemetery. During the Nazi movement he was enshrined as a “hero”; Hitler even went so far as to dedicate the second volume of Mein Kampf to him, to say nothing of many state monuments, memorials, and the Olympic Stadium itself!

The following items should be of keen interest to the historically-inclined collector. The flatware pieces are all marked “E. L.” This marking stands for Eckhardt Landhaus, the name of the building were he died. This building was not far from the Platterhof on the Obersalzberg. It was renamed to the “Hinterbrand Lodge” when it was occupied by the U.S. Army for R&R, and the occupying American's did a very efficient job of looting the place. The consignor of this lot was able to secure the items listed below from a warehouse in the rear of the building.

All of these items are guaranteed to be original. I've broken the items into three separate lots so more than one of us can enjoy owning these historically important artifacts.

MISCSILVER #38340C Joachim von Ribbentrop Diplomatic Silver Serving Tray & Combination Pot/Serving Dish

These two table serving pieces are ultra rare, coming from the formal dinner service of Diplomatic Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Of all of the 3rd Reich serving vessels and flatware I have seen over the years, Ribbentrop's dining utensils are the only ones that are .925 marked, being the equivalent of Sterling. Most German government dinner services were of .800 or .825, (basically coin silver) as was the case with even Hitler's personal service. In fact the AH serving trays are normally only silver plated. For the Germans, these dinner pieces were more practical to be produced in the harder coin silver medal. The Diplomatic Service, however, was different. Much of Diplomacy is influenced by the importance, prestige and perceived wealth of the negotiating party. With this in mind, Ribbentrop, enjoyed his formal meals from .925 flatware, cutlery and table serving pieces.

The tray is round and is slightly less than 13 inches in diameter. The tray is in perfect condition with no flaws, showing only nominal usage. Due to its nearly solid silver construction, the tray weighs about 3 pounds - very heavy. The tray has a raised perimeter scalloped edge which is also decoratively curved and lined. The next area then becomes smooth for about two inches and then dips to a rounded lower base. Pressed into the center smooth area at the upper is an extremely fine Diplomatic eagle. The half-opened wing bird is similar to the Party style used by Hitler, however, the bird's head has a distinct point at the back and the hand-detailing to the feathering, talons, wreath and immobile swastika is extraordinary. The eagle is similar to the style used on the Ribbentrop silver flatware shown on Page 110 of the Yannes Silverware Encyclopedia book. On the reverse, the tray is hallmarked with a crescent, an imperial crown, and "925". Postioned after these hallmarks is the logo of the producer, Gebruder Sauerland of Berlin, consisting of a "dot" within a circle. This logo also appears on the Ribbentrop flatware, an indication that Gebruder Sauerland apparently had the contract for the Diplomatic silver service.

Accompanying the impressive tray is a solid silver pot with removable handle. Like the tray, the large silver content makes the pot very heavy, weighing almost 5 pounds. The silver pot is not eagle inscribed, but does contain the identical silver hallmarks and Gebruder Sauerland maker logo. One would ask, "Why would a pot be solid silver?" Well, the answer is that the handle was removed at the table, so that the pot turned into an elegant serving dish. This way hot food could be brought directly from the kitchen, but did not need to be transferred to another dish - very ingenious indeed and the first such serving piece like this that I have seen. The handle is equipped with a silver unlatching device that allows the end stem device of the handle to slip out of the silver retaining bracket. The pot has a matching silver lid. The lifting knob on the lid appears to be a shaped ebony wood and matches the angle-shaped wood portion of the removable handle.

So, if you have ever imagined the type of finery used during important formal dinners between heads of State, this is your opportunity to experience it yourself. Since the Führer would have often been a party to these type of dinners, I don't doubt that he had a morsel or two served from one or both of these top-of-the-line serving vessels. One-of-kind things here and both in choice condition. These artifacts were purchased directly from a veteran family by a Colorado-based stamp and coin dealer. 100% guaranteed original.

MISCSILVER #37460C Three Piece Set of SS-marked Flatware

This This set of SS-marked Flatware consists of a fork, a knife, and a large spoon. All of the pieces are the large size that was used for the main course with European dinnerware.

The fork measures 8¼ inches. It is plain throughout, with fine, sharp and straight tines. The lower obverse handle is deeply marked with a set of SS runes. The reverse of the fork is marked “Gbr Hepp 90”. This would indicate this fork is silver plated.

The matching knife is about 10 inches long. The blade is probably of stainless steel although there are no markings on it. It is in good condition, with just a few minor stains. The handle is plain, matching the other pieces, and has a deep set of SS runes at the bottom. There are a couple of small dings on this handle but nothing bad. It is marked at the transition from the handle to the blade “Gebruder Hepp” and “90”.

The large table spoon measures a shade over 8½ inches long. It too has the SS runes stamped into the handle. It is in perfect condition and is marked “Gebruder Hepp 90”.

This is a great matched set of SS flatware that appears to have been together since the war. It would make a great addition to any collection.

This example is marked on the reverse with the maker “Gebr. Hepp 90”. The “90” indicates silver plating.

This Cream Pitcher is only about 1¾” tall, and it is quite heavy, probably constructed of nickel with silver plating.

The pitcher is shaped in the usual fashion, with a handle resembling an ear with a spout opposite. The rim of the pitcher is flare outward, as is the base. The side of the pitcher is marked, “Flughafn München Reim” within a circle. This translates to the airport in Munich.

The fact that this little pitcher is quite elaborate indicates to me that it was used for special purposes and not something that was just put on an airport table. The bottom is marked with the capacity, “3cl”, or 3 centiliters which is just over one ounce. Also visible is a maker mark, “Arthur Krupp, Berndorf”.

A nice piece of airport-related silver here.

MISCSILVER #36514C Luftwaffe Officer's Mess Dinner Spoon

This Luftwaffe Dinner Spoon measures 7” long, and it appears to have a silver-plated finish. It is interesting to note that this spoon has two hallmarks in the bowl; "Cristofele", which is capped with what appears to be a scale, and a knight chess piece, flanked by "OC".

It is a plain design, with a a double line running around the rim of the handle. The lower portion of the handle is stamped with a “droop-tail” Luftwaffe eagle, who clutches a swastika and flies to the viewer's right. This piece is most likely from a Luftwaffe Officer's mess.

MISCSILVER #36491 Large Dinner Fork from Deutsche Haus Warschau

This large Dinner Fork measures eight inches in length. It is in excellent condition throughout, having a relatively plain surface with a lined border than runs almost down to the end. At the end there is floral decoration around the border. The tines of the fork are in perfect condition.

The reverse of the fork is marked with a open-winged Party eagle clutching a mobile swastika and who looks to the viewer's left. The piece is marked on the reverse, “NIKORA”. I don't see any silver markings, but I believe that this piece is silver plated.

Deutsche Haus Warschen was the presidential palace in Warsaw, and it still exists today. The SS was pretty much running Poland during the war, and the head officer that occupied the palace, SS Brigadeführer Franz Kutschera,was executed after the war for his crimes against the Polish people. There is a great deal of information available about this infamous character available on the internet.

An interesting fork here that would compliment a flatware collection.

MISCSILVER #36159 NSDAP Tablespoon

This NSDAP Tablespoon is a silver-plated type and it has a length of 7¼ inches. The scoop end of the spoon is interesting as on the left side it is cut on more of an angle than normal to make the ease of eating easier; only the Germans would think of something like this! The spoon is in excellent condition throughout and is completely plain except for the stamping on the lower portion of the handle. This stamping consists of a political eagle having his head looking to the viewer’s right and half open wings. The bird clutches a wreath in his talons containing a mobile swastika inside. The detail to the bird is outstanding to his eye, beak, wing feathering and talon definition.

The reverse of the spoon is marked, “Gebr. Hepp 90”. The Gebruder Hepp firm is quite well known for Third Reich flatware being the exclusive makers of the Deutsche Hof flatware among others. The “90” indicates that this spoon is silver plated. This flatware was recently purchased from a contact I have in Poland. I have a feeling that the flatware could have been used in one of the Third Reich government posts established in Poland, possibly under Hans Frank, but as of this date I have no way to prove it. Either way a most interesting NSDAP used piece of dinnerware.

MISCSILVER #35763 NSKK Large Wedding Tray

This oval silver tray measures about 18 inches horizontally and about 12½ inches at the diagonal. The tray has a rolled border going around the edges and it is also sectioned at the border areas. The silvering to the tray is beginning to wear and the brass base metal can be seen showing through in some of the areas. The tray is tremendously interesting though because on its surfaces has been engraved a map of northern Germany. The borders of the country are extremely intricately done and also the river Oder is shown in the territory of the map. There is a directional arrow at the left side which is pointing to the north with a “N” engraved into the tray above the arrow.

In selected areas of this portion of northern Germany are the cities of “Grünberg, Neusalz, and Freystadt”. Postioned around the cities are engraved pennant flags on stands which have the groups of the NSKK who were involved in these particular areas. The main NSKK group has a larger pennant and engraved in this pennant is “IV / M120”. Smaller pennants have other NSKK groups engraved in the pennant indicating they are all units which reported to “M120”. The units all have the “M120” in the pennant but they also have the numbers, “31, 32, 34, & 33”. To the left of the map is the presentation to the leader of “IV / M120” The presentation is a five-line engraving, “Dem Führer der Motorstaffel IV/ M 120 / Sturmführer Alfons Sucker / zur Hochzeit gewidmet von der / Motorstandarte 120 / 28. Mai 1935”. This presentation would translate, “To the Leader of Motor Staff IV / M 120 Sturmführer Alfons Sucker a gift on his wedding from Motorstandarte 120 on May 28, 1935”. This is really a great tray here giving some idea of the organization as well as the locations of different NSKK groups. The tray would make a wonderful decoration with other NSKK items or could just be enjoyed on your collecting room wall somewhere. A very rarely seen NSKK item here.

MISCSILVER #35558 Early Luftwaffe Large Mess Hall Spoon

This spoon is about 8 1/2 inches in length, and is a stainless steel example. The spoon is relatively plain throughout, having beveled edges on the handles. The handle is stamped with the early droop-tail eagle, which is flying to the viewer's right and clutching a mobile swastika in his talons. Next to the swastika are the initials respectively, "L.G." "K. II". Obviously this is a Luftwaffe group which collectors of Luftwaffe items should be able to easily identify. The reverse of the spoon is marked with the words, "OXYDEX ROSFRIE" and "ORIGINAL OLYMPIA". A nice item to add to a Luftwaffe collection.

MISCSILVER #35476 Cake Fork from Nationalsozialistischer Rechtswahrerbund, or NSRB

This interesting Cake Fork comes from the NSRB, which was an organization of German legal professionals from 1936 to 1945; I would think that notorious personages such as Hans Frank, Roland Freisler and Hans Lammers certainly must have been members. The fork is 6 1/4 inches in length, having the far left prong being slightly wider and having a "bowie" shape at the tip. The handle has a lined accent border and dips inward where it is rounded at the end. At the bottom of the obverse handle is stamped the interesting logo of the NSRB. It consists of an open-wing eagle perched on an downward-pointing sword. Superimposed on the breast of the eagle is a set of scales, and the eagle has a mobile swastika on its breast.

The reverse of the cake fork is marked, "Wellner Patent" "90" and "18". The "90" marking would indicate that this is a silver-plated fork. The fork is in very fine condition showing little wear. An incredibly rare piece of NSDAP flatware here.

MISCSILVER #33957 Dinner Knife from “Deutsches Haus Wien”

This 10 inch dinner knife comes from the Deutsches Haus in Vienna. It is a very plain example showing lots of usage but definitely from the period. The handle is rounded along the edges with no decoration. At the bottom of the handle stamped horizontally in two lines is, “Deutsches Haus / Wien”. The blade is a stainless steel type and still has most of its crossgraining. It has a serrated edge for cutting. There is a faint maker etching which still appears on the obverse blade side being the maker, “Berndorf / Rostfrei”. To the left of these words is the symbol of this firm being a bear. An interesting piece here that no doubt got put into a coat pocket somewhere along the line during the Third Reich.
