MISCSILVER #46086C German Made Fascist Silver Knife and Fork

This knife and fork are ultra rare and are the first examples that I have seen.

They are German made pieces of 800 silver and we believe that they were made for the visit with Mussolini in 1938 or it is possible that Mussolini maintained an office in Berlin where these utensils were kept. They will take further study but they are extremely rare.

The utensils are 10 inches and 8 inches in length respectively. Both utensils have a fine smooth pattern with decorative lines on the edges. At the bottom of the handle is a raised out fascist symbol. It is extremely well done and highly detailed. For something of this nature to be raised out would indicate that a special die was made for this stamping.

The utensils appear to be the absolute highest quality and other than normal patina, both are in outstanding condition. The knife had all of its original grain and the blade is marked "Nicht Rostend". Both pieces are marked 800 with the crescent eagle and crown.

An opportunity to own something that previously has been unknown and quite special.

Near Mint. $5,995.00

The handle is smoother, having beveled edges on both sides. There is a small split on the handle where the stainless blade was inserted.

The reverse of the knife is marked “POL. REICH” which I assume stands for “Reich Police”. At the upper portion of the handle is also marked with a logo that appears to be a set of triplets, the name of the producer, “RONEUSIL” and “Rostfrei”. There is another stamp in the shape of the shield with a figure resembling a house.

Excellent. $129.00

MISCSILVER #36614C Reichs Police Dinner Spoon

This large Police Dinner Spoon measures 8½ inches in length. It has a good bowl, and the smooth handle has a tapered edge running the length which terminates in a slight point. The spoon is unmarked on the obverse facing.

On the reverse it is stamped “POL. REICH”. I assume this stands for “Reich Police”. The spoon is also marked with a logo that appears to be a set of triplets, the name of the producer, “RONEUSIL” and “Rostfrei”. There is another stamp in the shape of the shield with a figure resembling a house.

MISCSILVER #45207 DAF Marked Teaspoon

This teaspoon appears to have been produced of stainless. It measures 5 and half inches in length and is in fine condition.

On the obverse portion of the spoon it is marked on an angle within a rectangle Hanewacker. I do not know the meaning of this word but perhaps it could be researched by the next owner.

On the reverse of the spoon it is marked with the DAF cogwheel and a swastika in the center. Below the cogwheel are the initials “MDA / Sch. D. A”. This would tend to indicate that perhaps this was some type of school that was managed by the DAF but I do not know.

An interesting example here.

Excellent Plus. 95.00

MISCSILVER #45206 DAF Marked Tablespoon

This tablespoon is quite large measuring 8 and half inches in length and it remains in perfect condition. It is produced of stainless steel.

On the obverse handle is the word Hanewacker within a rectangle and put on a slanted position. On the reverse is the DAF cogwheel with swastika in the center. Below this are the initials in capital letters “M. DA / Sch D. A.”. I believe that this would indicate that it comes from some type of school sponsored by the DAF. The utensil is also marked on the reverse with the maker “OXYDEX ROSTFREI”.

A nice item here that needs some research.

Excellent Plus. $95.00

MISCSILVER #45021 Army Mess Hall Fork

MISCSILVER #45205 NSDAP Hotel Owned Cream Pitcher

This cream pitcher is identical to the types that are found coming from the Deutsche Hof except that it is generically marked as it was used in other hotels owned by the NSDAP. For instance the Berchtesgadener Hotel was also part of the NSDAP ownership.

This cream pitcher is 4 and a half inches high. It has a conventional spout and a ear shaped handle. There is no lid involved with this utensil. It is marked on the left edge “Hotel Betriebsges m. b. H”. This was the code for party owned hotel property.

On the bottom of the pitcher it has the same markings as other hotel owned pieces featuring a round wreath with an open swastika in the center. The contents are also marked “0.20”. I don’t see any additional numbers.

A good item here if you’re collecting NSDAP hotel service. The pitcher has never been cleaned and features an all black patination.

H", or "Hotel Operating Company", indicating this piece is from a Party owned hotel. There is also the wreathed swastika that indicates Party ownership, as well as the capacity of "02L".

MISCSILVER #40965C Martin Bormann Vinegar & Oil Cruet Holder

This Cruet Holder consists of two round, silvered vessels attached to a base of the same shape. There are rings that act to retain small bottles (or cruets) of oil and vinegar.

A Bormann Political eagle is stamped on to the upper surface of the base. This bird has open wings and looks to the viewer's left, clutching a mobile swastika.

The bottom to the holder is marked "Wellner" and "6", which I suspect is a model number.

A very rare, one of a kind item here, coming from the Bormann residence in Berchtesgaden. The consignors father worked at the Pentagon and was given this piece, along with others, by a veteran.

Excellent Plus, Plus. $1,295.00

MISCSILVER #40966C Silvered Martin Bormann Tumbler Holder

According to the consignor this Cup Holder was acquired from a veteran while his father was working at the Pentagon.

At first glance this piece appears to be a cup itself, although it was actually designed to hold a glass tumbler. The bottom has a hollow area to accommodate an inserted glass. This piece is in remarkable condition.

There is a handle on one side and a rolled Bormann Political Eagle in the center. This bird has open wings and looks to the viewer's left, clutching a wreath of oak leaves with a mobile swastika. There is a 2 ½ inch opening at the top. This cup holder is marked "Wellner".

An interesting piece of Bormann service here.

Near Mint. $750.00

MISCSILVER #40476C Four Pieces of Flatware from Deutsche Hochschule

The Deutsche Hochschule was the greater education ministry which was under the auspices of Bernard Rust. SS Gruppenführer Heissmeyer was also involved with this ministry and overlooked the NPEA.

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 believe that this is the first time that I've the opportunity to offer pieces from the Deutsche Hochschule.

Excellent Plus, Plus. $495.00

MISCSILVER #39591C Aluminum Army Mess Hall Knife

This Army Mess Hall Knife is constructed from aluminum with a stainless steel blade. The blade has had some sharpening in the past and is not in very good condition.

The rounded handle is quite plain. Stamped at the bottom of the handle is the abbreviated name of the company that made flatware for the Wehrmacht, “FSCM” and “38”. At the bottom is an open-winged Wehrmacht eagle and swastika.

Good. $135.00

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!

Excellent Plus, Plus. $595.00



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 #39158C Lot of Dietrich Eckhardt Tableware

This grouping consists of eight Eckhardt flatware piece, all of which have the monogram “EL”. This stands for the building Eckhardt lived in, the “Eckhardt Landhaus”. The flatware is also hallmarked “BSF 100” and “Platuna”.

The lot includes one large table spoon, a large dinner knife, a large dinner fork, a small fork, a salad fork, a smaller knife, a master butter and a demitasse spoon.

Also included in a fine white linen napkin, also embroidered with the “EL” monogram.

MISCSILVER #38100 Wehrmacht Tea Spoon

The reverse is neatly stamped with a Wehrmacht eagle and swastika. The detailing throughout this bird remains outstanding. Above the bird is the stamped maker mark, “S&H / L”.

Mint. $45.00

MISCSILVER #37154 Army Infantry Regiment “54” Officer's Fish Fork

Measuring 7½ inches long this Fish Fork is extremely elegant, having a very high quality silver-plated finish and showing little in the way of usage.

The fork has a nice design; right before the prongs there is an indentation on either side. There is also a border that does not appear until toward the end of the handle. It is very elegant.

The fork is stamped with the monogram “IR54”. On the reverse is the maker name “Gebr. Hepp 90”. The “90” indicates that the fork is silver plated.

Near Mint. $150.00

MISCSILVER #37155 Army Infantry Regiment “54” Fish Knife

This Fish Knife is a very elegant utensil, having an outstanding silver-plated finish. The handle has a border design that only begins towards the end portion.

The handle is stamped with the monogram “IR” over the number “54”. This utensil would have been used in an Officers dining room.

The reverse of the fish knife is marked “Gebr. Hepp 90” with the “90” indicating silver plate.

A very elegant knife here.

Near Mint. $150.00

MISCSILVER #36505C Small Silvered Cream Pitcher

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.

Excellent Plus. $350.00

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.

Excellent. $150.00

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.

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.
