The Platterhof Hotel was built by the Nazi Party to house visitors waiting to see Hitler. The hotel was located a short distance from Hitler's mountain residence, the Berghof. The Platterhof Hotel was used by the US Army until about 2005, when it was torn down after being returned to the control of the Bavarian government. As was the case with many of the properties in Hitler's Obersaltzberg, the Platterhof was relentlessly looted by American soldiers in May of '45. The Platterhof logo was used on all silver and glassware used at the hotel. It depicts a peasant woman with mountains rising behind her, surrounded by an oval outline.



PLATTERHOF #40243 Platterhof Hotel Gravy Boat

This Gravy Boat is quite large, measuring 10 inches wide and 6 inches high. It has a standard spout at one end and an ear-shaped handle on the other. Stamped on the left side of the boat is the Platterhof logo; a peasant woman standing on a hill between two mountains.

The boat has a rim around it, tapering to a narrow base and flaring out at the bottom. The lower rim is stamped "Gebr. Hepp 90", indicating that it is silver plated.

A very fine item here, and the first gravy boat I've seen coming from the Platterhof. This item comes from the daughter of the veteran who brought it back, a Mr. Phillip G. O'Meara, late of Oregon. One of four sons who all went to war, he served in Algeria, Tunisa, Siciliy, Italy, Southern France, the Rhineland and Central Europe.

O'Meara sent back a huge cache of war booty; I have a photo of three huge boxes of his treasure piled in his family's hardware store. Unfortunately the store burned down in 1946 and the bulk of this trove was destroyed. The Platterhof pieces, however, were luckily kept at his home and survived the fire. Included in the paperwork that accompanied this item is an article in which O'Meara states that he indeed go to Berchstesgaden where he "got souvenirs out the hotel, some of Eva Braun's monogrammed silverware and service". Apparently he got a lot of other things, but we'll never know as only the Platterhof pieces have survived. We will of course include copies of this paperwork with the purchase of the item.

This logo is a single line oval with a tulip at the top. Inside the oval is a Alpine woman standing between two snow-capped mountains. This is a very beautiful goblet.

At the end of WWII, the U.S. Army took over the Platterhof and renamed it the General Walker Hotel. It was given back to Germany a couple of years ago and the Bavarian government knocked it down in favor of building a new hotel.

PLATTERHOF #29841 Platterhof Small Gravy Boat

This Platterhof Small Gravy Boat was probably used as an individual serving. It measures approximately 6½” at the wide point and about 2½” at the narrow point in the center. The gravy boat is in the traditional shape with a spout on one end and a handle on the other. The boat is mounted on a pedestal device. The entire piece is probably a nickel base with silver plated surfaces. The silvering has turned black with patination and really looks good.

At the base of the gravy boat, there are some markings, on one side being the producer name “Gebr Hepe” and then after that, the code “90”. This code normally indicates that the pieces of silver plate amounting to 10%. On the center of the gravy boat is the beautiful symbol of the Platterhof. It consists of an oval design which contains a pheasant figure of a woman standing in front of two mountains. The background sky is lined and the area beneath the woman has little flower designs. You can see this design on the crystal glasses that I am also offering on my site from the Platterhof. There is also the number “0.10” stamped on the rim of the pedestal. This represents the centiliter, which was the metric amount that the gravy boat would hold. A very nice piece here.
