A Dinner Table Knife Dug Up at the Site of Adolf Hitler's Berghof in 1969 (Item AH 25-1)

DESCRIPTION: This is a large (practically 10”) table knife from Adolf Hitler’s Obersalzberg Mountain retreat known as the Berghof. This is in the formal pattern with the Greek key design as drawn up originally by the Fuhrer himself. It was found under a pile of stone gravel by a person (unnamed) who was often digging in early darkness among the ruins of the famous beautiful mansion. Several pieces of this group were recovered there. This example is damaged with “dings” undoubtedly suffered from rocks and stones thrown on it when hidden. Go to AH 20-12 B on the Hitler pages for a further description of this type of table knife. This one, as you can see in the photos, is rather banged up but it is genuine and definitley from the famed Berghof. So, instead of $1,600 on this one we will take $1,400 and that is a bargain. Remember, this piece has a bit of romance to it in that it was hidden in all probability by an SS Guard of the Leibstandarte (Body Guard Regt.) who probably intended to come back at a future time to retrieve his treasures but obviously never did. At least that is our plausible theory. What do you think? The piece is by Bruckmann and marked with the moon crown and eagle at the juncture of the blade and grip. These items are practically impossible to find today and even in this condition it would bring about twice this amount in Germany to collectors.

A Large Dinner Fork from Hitler Table
(in silver by Bruckmann)
(Item AH 25-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a rarity of Hitler collectables. This is the full size dinner fork in the formal pattern as used at the Berghof, Hitler’s mountain retreat above the town of Bertesgaden in the Bavarian Alps. This is the formal pattern that Hitler designed himself -- the piece is in 800 silver and so designated with the crown, half moon and eagle stamping out the back of the shaft. The Greek key design is to be seen all around the edges and of course the National N.S. eagle is supported by "A H" at the sides of the wreathed swastika. The fork is about 8 ½" long and of course is by the firm of Bruckmann in Heilbronn. Frau Gerdy Troost worked with Hitler to develop this pattern that replaced the earlier pattern that is erroneously called the informal pattern. This is a very hefty fork and in perfect condition. Very scarce and prodigiously desirable to collectors. Almost impossible to find in Germany today and when one is found there it will bring huge premiums far more than we ask for this great piece. 100% original and fine with the 800 silver designation and moon and crown markings.

A Gravy Ladle from the Dinner Table of Adolf Hitler (Item AH 25-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is extremely rare in that there was only one of these used at every six position dinner setting although there would be at least 5 to 6 pieces of flatware at each position. Thus this would probably be one of the most rare of the dinner setting pieces, except for possibly a meat fork or carving knife. The ladle is very seldom encountered in formal style Hitler silverware. This is a very fine example and although we have handled dozens and dozens of knives, forks, spoons of the Hitler flatware, this is the first time we have ever encountered a gravy ladle. It is in the same style of the aforementioned pieces but with the dipping cup. It was finished in 800 silver and is so marked along with the moon crown and eagle on the shank. Brukmann of Heilbron was the manufacturer  It is 7 ½" long and the cup bowl is 2 ½" x 2" in dimension and almost an inch deep. The National N.S. eagle is supported on its sides with the "AH."  We would like to once more emphasize the extreme rarity of this implement and we can state authentically that this piece would bring probably at least twice what we offer it for in Germany today.

Formal Napkin and Formal Napkin Ring from Adolf Hitler’s Personal Table Service (Item AH 25-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a “great find.” The napkin rings are rare and a real treasure when found.  But even in fact more rare yet are the napkins. We now offer at this time a formal napkin ring and the dinner napkin together. We prefer to keep this as a set and indeed (it is a set) the napkin has the embroidered national eagle of the style used only by the Fuhrer himself.  He used them at the Reich’s Chancellery, the Berghof, and the Fuhrerbau in Munich, etc. The napkin rings are explained in AH 4-2. The napkin is about 14" long and has a beautiful floral pattern throughout.  This was one of the patterns used. This is the usual pattern for Hitler napkins, although there are variations. This particular style is very similar to the ones used on the “Fuhrerzug,” -- Hitler’s private train, as shown in Mark D. Griffiths book “Liberated Adolf Hitler Memorabilia" on page 36.  However, the train type shows a different monogram. We know of at least six types used at various times in different places. This one was the most encountered formal style used with napkin ring. Not all were so used. This was Hitler’s favorite because this was the eagle motif that he personally designed. This would be a great center piece to grace a fine Hitler or advanced N.S. collection. To find the two pieces together is practically unheard of. These items are to be sold as a set only (fabulous!).  

PRICE: No longer available as a set -- still have some napkin holders available.

(Entwurf) Original Drawing by the Artist
of a Fantastic Presentation to the Fuhrer 
(AH 25-7 & ART 16-5 & SA13-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is for the true Germanophile. It is the original design hand rendered by the artist Herr Professor Ernst Rump. The statue that the drawing depicts is of a proposed sculpture of the hero Roland of Bremen that was about 60 cm in height and was crafted in silver. It was absolutely  unique; no other was ever done. It was presented to Adolf Hitler on the occasion of his 50th.birthday. It was commissioned to be created by Ernst Rump, a quite famous gold and silversmith, by the Bremen Government and the dean of the north German art school. Rump created it in four months of intensive artistry. The Roland figure stood in the middle of a silver bowl with four legs and in front of the bowl you can see an eagle. The plinth bears the shield with the Bremen Wahlspruch. Several copied documents and news releases accompany the picture -- in one of them it is announced that “The largest city of Gau Wessser Ems wishes to please our Fuhrer with this magnificent creation, along with this we present to our leader a tea table with ceramic inlay from the SA Gruppe (Nordsee”). These ceramics depict clouds and waves with a Viking ship. The red-sand light house, a ship that is a 5 master sailing ship. And the first German steamer “Wesser”plus the western tower of the island of Wangerooge, the modern trawler “Luneberg” and the fast steamer “Bremen” in the center is a compass rosette. In another clipping it reads “New from Bremen April 21, 1939 concerning the presents from Bremen and the SA Sturm (Nordsee) masterpieces of art work made by hand. These presented yesterday were an expression of love and honor from the German people to the creator of the Greater German Reich” and thus are the presents that ended up on the presentation table for our Fuhrer. Great consideration was given to the idea and final selection of these particular presents to represent the relationship that Gau Wesser area had to North Sea area. The center piece is of course the model of Roland the Giant and other impressive items to show Bremen's connection to the North Sea. The creator of the present from the Hanse City Bremen is the silver table decoration produced by the leader of the North German Goldsmiths Guild, Ernst Rump. This piece consists of a bowl with a figure of Roland in the center and has the inscription: To our Fuhrer from the Free Hanse City of Bremen on April 20, 1939 this is “Buten und Binnen-Wagon und Winnen! This is Bremen dialect...it means – On seas and on land, on wagons, and ships!  The bowl has a diameter of 52 cm. Several of the pieces are clad in gold to make it even more admirable. The framed “Entwurf” is huge, really huge 33 ½" x 26" and the frame is about 1 ½" thick all around. It is beautifully framed in a gold leaf frame. The glass is non-glare and it is backed with museum grade backing (using preservation methodology).

Something about Roland: According to legend, Bremen will remain free and independent as long as the Roland statue stands watching the city.  Roland was Charlemaignes Knight Errant. He was erected in 1404.  He bears the sword Durendart (Justice)” and a shield decorated with the two headed Imperial Eagle. The statue is 5.47 mm tall and stands on a 60 cm rostrum. This brings the combined height to 16.21 m.  Roland is the symbol of civil liberty and freedom. It is a great symbol and it can be understood clearly why the city and Ernst Rump chose this subject for the sculpture in silver to be presented to the Fuhrer. Ernst Rump was a celebrated artist in his time and even worked with the Deutsches Ahnenerbe on several projects. We are very proud to offer this original drawing from this talented artist of the 3rd Reich Remember: it is unique, one of a kind and should be in a museum or in a first class collection.

Tableware from the DR Deutsche Reichsbahn
(German National Railways, Special Cars)
(Item AH 25-8)

DESCRIPTION: According to a publication recently released by author James A. Yannes, Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goring both had private trains within the German railroad system. In the book (page 71) he points out that the silverware was by Bruckmann and Sohne and the markings were as follows -- the front portion of the pieces bear the N.S. National eagle in raised pattern with DR (Deutsche Reichsbahn). On the back is seen the crescent moon, the crown and the 800 silver content numbers. On the pieces from the Fuhrer's personal dining car it would have the number 205. This was for the private train (“Der Fuhrerzug”) that was comprised of 17 cars. The spoon that we offer is defiantly from the “Fuhrerzug” and its number is #213.  Mr. Yannis states that this number was assigned to the staff dining car, so Hitler’s generals and high political leaders would be the passengers in this car. Mr. Yannis goes on to say that there were two full time silver polishers assigned to the Fuhrerzug. The train was code named “Fuhrersonderzug” F until 1940 then “Amerika.” This spoon is 5 ½" long and would be considered a teaspoon or desert spoon. In beautiful mint condition, an important relic of the 3rd Reich and the man Adolf Hitler.

Book from Adolf Hitler's Library: Volks -Nietzsche Der Mann Und Sein Werk
( Die Fruhscriften) 
(Item AH 25-9)

DESCRIPTION: Adolf Hitler was a great admirer of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (Aug 15, 1844 Aug 25, 1900).  He was a great philogist, as well. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science using a distinctive German language style and displaying a fondness for metaphor and aphorism.  Nietzsche's influence remained substantial and Adolf Hitler certainly picked up on much of Nietzsche's wisdom especially in existentialism and deep analytic philosophy, although Hitler was a Christian and it seems he remained one until the end.  He yet embraced much of Neitzsche's philosophy. The philosopher met the world’s greatest musical composer in 1868, Richard Wagner. Nietzsche greatly admired the music master and his wife, Cosima, and during his time in Basel frequently visited Wagner’s home in the Canton of Lucerne. He was a prolific author; he wrote “Thus Spake Zarathustra” in only 10 days.  His Twilight of the Idols was a favorite of the young Hitler. It was a strange fascination in fact for Nietzsche often criticized anti-semitism and even nationalism.  But on the other hand, he called for the strong in the world to break their self imposed chains and assert their own power, health, and vitality upon the earth. Later N.S. writers were enthralled with the line from Zarathustra’s gift of the ‘superman’ (translation: Ubermensch) is given to mankind not aware of the problem to which the Superman is the solution. This Ubermensch that was paralled to the meteoric rise of Adolf Hitler to the German nation's ‘Ubermensch’.  The plausibility of Hitler’s early interest in Nietzsche becomes clearly evident when both ideological concepts are juxtaposed.  Hitler often visited the Nietzsche museum in Weimar and publicized his veneration for the philosopher by posing for photographs of himself standing respectfully beside the bust of the great men. Nietzsche said in The Will to Power “a daring and ruler race is building itself up and the aim should be to prepare a transvaluation of the present values for a particularly strong kind of man, most highly gifted in intellect and will. This man and the elite around him will become the lords of the earth."  Such grandiose words from one of Germany’s greatest minds must have struck a responsive chord in Hitler's mind and the words "lords of the earth" is a familiar expression in ‘Mein Kampf’. In the end, Hitler reflected in the consideration that he might actually be the Ubermensch in Nietzsche’s prophecy. There is at last some ground for the appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the National Socialist idea of “Weltanschuung.” So the book would have been stored undoubtedly with other copies of the same in the various library collections of the Fuhrer. We acquired it in a book sale that is held annually in Frankfurt, Germany where our European picker accompanied us to the Frankfurt book fair. We were able to buy the entire collection of a man who collected nothing but important books with Ex Libris cards of famous people and N.S organizations. There were books from the libraries of Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goring, Paul J. Goebbels and several from the library of the SS Totenkopf Standarte ‘Oberbayern’. This offering is possibly one of the most important considering how it would have been appreciated by the Fuhrer. The printing was accomplished in the year 1931 in Berlin. It is comprised of 346 pages. It measures 5" x 7 ½" in size and is exactly 1 inch thick.  It was taken care of and is in pristine condition, all text, no pictures. This is a very important volume with the Hitler bookplate inside the front cover (intact)

Adolf Hitler's Formal Napkin Rings (Item AH 4-2 & AH 25-10)

DESCRIPTION: These are fine original napkin rings from the residence of Adolf Hitler in the Obersalzberg over Bertesgaden in the Alps. These are incredibly fine and marked by Bruckmann, the firm that was the maker of most of the Führer 's silverware, other than the flatware that was made by Wellner. We have several of these that were brought back in 1945 by a veteran of the 101st Airborne. They are a bit tarnished, but that is the way we leave them. I polished one of them slightly for the pictures, but I usually don't alter anything, even to polishing. I Leave that to the collector who purchases. They are 1 ¾ inches high with a diameter of 1 ½ inches. The Bruckmann mark and the assay mark with the crown, moon, and eagle, plus 800 are clear as a bell. These are first-quality table-service items (of course). An elegant relic indeed and vastly important to history. The veteran looted four boxes full of these items from a storage facility in what was the basement of the Berghof in the Obersalzberg. He has released a few at a time to us and he watches our site closely. There will be a time when we will be able to get no more from him as he believes as we do that these Hitler personal items will eventually bring a “young fortune” in the near future. We have seen nothing yet as to a ceiling on NS and, especially, Hitler items. Consider yourself lucky if you are in time to procure one of these great relics having belonged to one of history’s most controversial world leaders. These napkin holders were used only for the most formal of dinner or lunch occasions. They were used along with the formal flatware. For lesser occasions the informal flatware was used. See Item AH 21-12a. To see formal AH flatware, go to Item AH 9-3. So we are not only referring to an exciting, dramatic relic, but also a very sound investment, as well.

PRICE: $1,450.00 for each

Reichschancellory Meat Platter and Cover
 (Item AH 25-11)

DESCRIPTION: What would be rarer than a meat platter from the Adolf Hitler table settings? You know, the ones by Wellner with the eagle and A.H. Answer: The same thing from the Reich’s chancery! Why? Because out of the very few of the A.H. ones there was probably a dozen or so because they would have been part of the dinner service at the Berghof. The Berchtesgaden Chancellery, The Braun house maybe! The Fuhrerbau in Munich and logically the Berchtesgadener Hof in that city. Plus the Eagles Nest (Kelsteinhaus) above the Berghof. Now! As for the Reichschancellory ones, we would assume that there could be only 8 or 10 at the most and more than likely less that that and after the Russian looters got through with the building -- how many could have survived? Thus, this is without a single doubt an extremely rare piece of history. And, it is in immaculate condition throughout. The platter is huge: 21 ½ inches long and 14 inches wide. The cover is 5 inches tall and 18 inces long and 11 inches wide. The platter is marked on its underside Wellner with an 82 stamp. Wellner was the maker of most of the Fuhre'rs formal dinnerware, except for the flatware and that was produced by Brückmann. The cover has a handle with stampings on it -- the large letters spell out W.M.F (Wurtemberger metal fabric) with a stamped 31 to the right of it and N S to the right inside  It has the stampings that say W.M F Geslingen-Steige.  On the outside middle of the cover is the Chancellory eagle engraved with the R and K on either side of the wreathed swastika .On the platter the same eagle and letters appear at the middle of the rim at 12:00. The platter and cover are in heavy nickle or brass deeply silver plated. The R K dinnerware from the Chancelry in Europe is actually much more sought after than the Adolf Hitler pieces that look exactly alike except that those are marked A.H., while the Chancellery pieces are marked R.K. The Hitler pieces show up much more often that these Neue Reichkanzeli ones. So, collector friends, you are looking at a very desirable Hitler connected relic that is profoundly important historically to say nothing about the fact that this will be a egregiously beautiful and dramatic display in any exceptional collection.  The piece has provenance with it and this is highly unusual. The dining set for Adolf Hitler contained a similar platter and cover but with A.H. instead of RK.  We do feel that this Reich Chancellery set is actually more rare than the Hitler one because it was only for the New Chancellery in Berlin. Some would call this a turkey platter but it would have been for any meat dish to include fish, ham, goose and turkey and no doubt for a succulent beef roast as well.  But strictly for the staff and honored guests not for the “Chief “as he was a vegetarian but he seldom lectured anyone else about that. Anyway, collector friends, if you would desire a large Hitler collectable, here it is and I can’t imagine anything more dramatic and historically important as this marvelous find. We are very pleased to and proud to be able to offer this in our Germania pages. The price is really ultra reasonable.

The Ultimate Hitler Owned Treasure (Yes, Treasure!) (Item AH 25-12)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an Ehrenburgerrecht -- one of the best ones we have seen. It is an honorary citizenship document presented to the Fuhrer. There were similar ones perhaps not so elaborate given to him from many of the cities, towns and small hamlets throughout the German Reich in 1933 when he became Reichs-Chancellor of Germany. Hitler was born in Austria and he needed to become German to advance his political career during the National Socialist period -- more than 4,000 German towns awarded Adolf Hitler the title of Honorary Citizen. Today, the town of Bitterfeld in Sachsen Anhalt is the only one still with Adolf Hitler on their list of honorary citizens. When Hitler was popular with the German masses, the people urged their town councils to make him a citizen of their communities.  This was also a sincere demonstration to any person or parties objecting to his office seeking due to the fact that he was not a German citizen. No leader since has enjoyed the popularity and adoration that the German people lavished on the Fuhrer.  He was to them “The Befreier” (the Liberator!). Almost an awaited Messiah. Actually Hitler was stateless until he was granted German citizenship on February 26, 1932 after becoming a civil servant in Braunschwig, in the region now encompassed by lower Saxony. His status enabled him to run for president in that year. One of the obstacles that he faced during the campaign was this birth place problem. That essentially was overcome by the momentous support in 1933 of the German citizenry. As we have pointed out, these Ehenburgers were presented in several various forms. We have a woven one that can be seen at AH 21-4 in these pages from the city of Oelsnitz in Saxony. Hitler more than any other Third Reich figure was the recipient of many gifts ranging from statuary, to paintings, and jewelry, such as rings (see our write up at position AH 24-1 on these pages  The ring we believe is also in Ehrenberger in the same tradition as this one that we offer here.  He received a gold washed Walther PPK automatic pistol from the Walther Company that was sold here in the U.S. for a “kings ransom” but is well known that he seldom wore the rings or the pistol and for that matter he only ever carried one gun during his early political struggles and you will find information about that in our write up entitled Adolf Hitler’s revolver.  You will find it among the subject headings on our home page. It makes fascinating reading. 

This Ehrenbergerbrief (honorary citizenship) was presented by the city of Guben. This is a town on the Lusatian Neisse River in the state of Brandenburg. It is an ancient city that began to develop around 1200 as a trade and marketplace on the roads between Leipzig and Poznan and between Goelitz and Frankfurt on the Oder. The citizens of Guben were strong in their admiration of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP.  In the war, Guban was early occupied by the Russians but was re-taken by the Waffen SS in a heroic struggle in February 1945. Guben is half today in Germany and half in Poland and is often in the news for violent right wing activity that goes on there. The patriotic feeling of intense Nationalism still reigns supreme in Guben. Only now its skinheads instead of brown shirt troopers of the SA are fighting Turks and Muslims instead of Reds and Jews. Now as to the magnificent Ehrenbergerbrief.  It is truly a magnificent and elaborate relic of the Reich and its leader Adolf Hitler who at that time was certainly “the man of the hour” to his German people. The cover for the document is on leather over a hard surface that could and probably is of wood.  It is quite large -- the back and front covers measures 22 x 18 ½ inches. When opened a wondrous and beautiful example of the wonderful artistry of fine calligraphy is revealed. The first thing that the eyes will gravitate to is the N.S. eagle in silver shown in a design of red ribbon threads set in a clever pattern that is very eye appealing.  Then you see the wording of the Ehrenbergerecht -- “Wir Magistrat und Stadtverordnete Der Stadt Guben haben Beschloffen Unserem Fuhrer Adolf Hitler Dem Grunder Des Dritten Reichs in Tiefster Dankbarkeit Das Ehrenburgerrecht zu verieihen Deffen zu Urkund ist Dieser Ehrenburgerbrief Ausgefertigt worden.  Guben/Den 29 Marz 1933.  Der Magistrate . . . . . . .Die Stadtverordneten"  Translation:  We Municipal authorities and city delegates of the city of Guben present to our leader Adolf Hitler the founder of the Third Reich in sincere gratitude this honorary citizenship it is testified and awarded by the Magistrate and town clerk. 

The calligraphy and N.S. eagle were accomplished by the artist Karl Hacker/ Berlin W 8 who was certainly an expert in such wonderful design.  Herr Hacker produced not only an item of extreme historical importance, but a thing of obvious beauty as well. One would do well to make an investment in this magnificent relic of the Third Reich. Items having belonged personally to Adolf Hitler today are considered prime investments and this one would be up there with the very finest and most important of all.

A Formal Pattern Luncheon Knife (Fuhrer Besteck)
from Hitler’s Berghof (Mountain Retreat) (Item AH 25-13)

DESCRIPTION: First, let me assure you that original silverware having belonged to Adolf Hitler is becoming so scarce that at a show in the German city of Kassel that I recently attended there were at least 250 booths with every sort of Third Reich paraphernalia imaginable. At these shows in the past there would be available one or two, sometimes three pieces of Hitler flatware.This time on November 30 to December 2nd there were absolutely none! Not a one. And, we were told that if a piece were available, it would be at least 2,000.00 Euros ($3,000.00 US).  It is one of the most desirable historical items that there are. I did manage to procure two brilliant pieces from a private collector that I know and he allowed me to buy a luncheon fork and luncheon knife at a reasonable price. (The price of a year ago.)  This was most fortunate and now we are able to offer you, the collector, this fine luncheon knife for this reasonable price plus a little bit for our troubles. These prices will reflect only part of the German price increase but also bear in mind that there might be some more in the near future. But at much higher prices also, the knife and fork are in immaculate condition the best we have ever had. The knife is 8 ½ inches long with the beautiful Greek key design along the edges. The marks are at the place where the blade meets the grip. The crown, the moon and the 800 silver content and the imperial looking eagle, The National Socialist .Reich’s eagle, is depicted raised with wings folded down and beside the swastika in the wreath is the A H for Adolf Hitler. This is not only a great buy, but an investment that could pay off in real dividends in the near future. “Hitler Besteck” is still grossly under priced considering the nature of it and its immense historical importance. You could not invest in anything better except it be gold perhaps. Don’t miss this great opportunity.

DESCRIPTION: This is the fork that we have mentioned above that I managed to buy on my trip to Germany. Please read about the knife above for details. The fork measures a little over 7 inches long and of course has the same Greek key design and the same markings but they are found on the back of the implement. The condition, just like the knife, is immaculate -- both the pieces are of the formal pattern. We have explained the scarcity and the fact that this may be the last we can ever offer. They just are not available even in Germany. As a very wise investment I would suggest that you do not hesitate. This piece is priced far under what the same would sell for in Germany if one could be found anymore at all!  This is a very wise investment. A year from now the price could double (at least!)

DESCRIPTION: This is a sugar spoon from the Adolf Hitler personal flatware collection. These particular types of spoons were considered the rarest of the groupings. Although there were 12 -24 piece place settings, there would only be about 3 to 4 sugar spoons for 3 to 4 spaced sugar bowls that would be placed ever 6 to 8 place settings on the dinning table. The spoon measures 5 ½ inches long and has the expected markings on the back of the shank. The moon, crown, 800 silver designation and the eagle stamp. We are often asked the question “what is the likelihood of the German Führer ever actually using a particular piece. Well we can’t naturally answer that in any authority although he certainly used some of these items since they were only set out if he was in attendance. If there was any one of the pieces that he most likely used, it certainly would have been the sugar spoons considering his extreme fondness for sweets and especially coffee and chocolate spiced further with the addition of sugar. The collector should be advised that in these days of collecting SA Daggers produced in millions and millions selling successfully at $800 and up, the price of Hitler personal items such as these are still a bargain that will in all probability see an astronomical price rise in the next year or so. They are very much under priced at the moment and they are not being reproduced. When these originals are down to only a few left (as it is almost now) the price will go into orbit. Investing in these pieces now makes good sense and you can never lose. Good NS pieces have gone nowhere but up in the past few years.

Hitler Silverware; Serving Spoon (Item AH 25-14b)

DESCRIPTION: This is a large serving spoon of the informal pattern. It measures 8 1/2 inches long, is well marked with moon, crown, ‘800’ silver designation, and a stamped eagle. It’s in nice condition with a large bowl 1 3/4 inches wide. “This; as we have said above was more likely to have been used personally by Adolf Hitler than the formal pattern because of the lesser number ever issued of these pieces. This is probably the best of the Hitler flatware that we have accumulated. It’s really exceptional and the serving spoons are always the rarest of any assemblage since there is usually only one or two to a set. This is rare; and beyond rare!

Informal A.H. Dessert Knife (Item AH 25-14c)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the “most rare of all,” of the Hitler Bestek (flatware). This is one of what has come to be known as the “informal” pieces that were the first type before the “formal” style was introduced. This is a dessert knife about 1/2 the size of the same in a dinner knife. The reason these are highly sought after is because they were used only at the Berghof, Hitler’s mountain retreat high above Berchtesgaden, and these pieces were in very limited numbers. So, the collector who wants to be sort of assured the Führer actually used this piece, consider that the confidence level is high because the Führer loved desserts and sweets and the likelihood of his using this article is more than likely. It measures 6 ½ inches long and has the early style N.S. eagle, whose wreathed swastika is flanked by the letters A.H. for “Adolf Hitler.” The blade is marked with the words that more or less translate to stainless steel and a ‘w’; this means it will not rust. Right where the blade fits into the grip are the very small numerals “800” with the moon, crown, and eagle. This refers to the silver content. The grip has the knicks of age and because this is one of the pieces dug up in the ruins of the Berghof in the 1960’s it still is in good shape. I would like to repeat at this point that the informal pieces are much more rare than the formal type and the dessert pieces are (incredibly rare). While formal pieces do turn up, seldom, if ever, do you see a piece as this. As rare as it is, we do not ask as much as the formal Bestecke bring. Seems everyone wants to own the prettier formal style, but someday when all of these items bring astronomical prices this one will be worth twice as much as the latter type. A great investment!

Large Dinner Spoon in Formal Pattern from the Berghof (Item AH 25-14d)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the best of the Adolf Hitler formal dinner flatware pieces: knives, forks, and spoons. This piece is a full 8 1/2 inches long with a bowl section 2 inches wide. It has the typical Greek-key design that was designed by the Führer, himself. It has the “Führeradler” or Hitler-style eagle supported on each side by “AH.” On the back is the moon, the crown, and the eagle stamp plus ‘800’ (the silver designation). You couldn’t find a better piece of Hitler memorabilia that is as rare as this one for such a reasonable price.

Large, Formal-Pattern Dinner Knife from Hitler’s Berghof (Mountain Retreat) (Item AH 25-14(e))

DESCRIPTION: This is a large piece of dinner Besteke (flatware) as used at the Alpine Berghof for formal occasions. It is in genuine 800 silver and is marked so with the crown, moon, and eagle just under the section where the grip of this dinner knife meets the blade. The knife is large, a little over 10 inches long. Of course the Greek key pattern that was designed by Hitler himself is seen along the edges while the Reich's Adler (eagle) is seen with the letters A H as the main design at the terminus of the grip. This knife is in immaculate, beautiful condition. It is one of the pieces looted by members of the American 101st Airborne Division when they occupied what was left of the house. The pieces were found in a trunk in an adjacent building and overlooked by the -Leibstandarte A. H. guards, when they blew up the gorgeous main building (the Berghof itself ) at Hitler’s orders. The Führer did not want his beautiful home to give luxurious comfort to the enemy marauders upon their uninvited arrival in these mountains so sacred to him. We were not able to determine exactly where the adjacent building actually was; it might even have been in the Berchtesgaden Reich's Chancery located in the town. We only have the description from a veteran of the 101st, but he was not present when the items were taken. He received them from another GI that was in on the actual looting. He remembered trading a carton of “Luckies” for several pieces of the flatware. That puts one in mind of the Roman soldiers gambling for the famous robe at the foot of the cross doesn’t it? But then, after all, these are the spoils of war! There could hardly be a genuine Adolf Hitler personal possession that could beat this piece. These items when found in Germany today bring as much as $3,000 or more. They are not only very rare, but also very desirable amongst collectors whenever rarely found. As we have said before, they are of immense historical importance. The dinner knife is much larger than the luncheon knives as seen at AH 25-13, but do read this description as it gives you more information about the pieces. One couldn’t possibly make a better investment. Of the ones we have had, this one is in the best condition of any we have offered in the past. The veteran took special care of it and it shows. Don’t miss it! This could be your only opportunity to purchase one (and what a one it is!)

Great Original Print Depicting Adolf Hitler (Item AH 25-15)
DESCRIPTION: This is a really great print depicting the German Fuhrer in the early days of the “Kampfzeit” (struggle for power) before the1933 victory of the NSDAP. After Hitler became Reichs-Kanzler, he instituted the WHW or Winter Help Work -- a charity program with the slogan “None shall starve or freeze.”  It was instituted in September 1933 and designed to provide food, fuel, clothing and various household items to indigent Germans at first and to war refugees and other civilian casualties in the later war years. In many ways it was similar to the U.S. Food Stamp program but much broader in its scope. Many little do-dads were issued to donors as a sign of their generosity made of plastic, wood, glass, etc. in myriad shapes and sizes, and to large donors the WHW officials would present this fine artistic rendition of Germany's Fuhrer. This one was presented to contributors in Gau (section) Mittlefranken in the years 1933 and 1934 as is printed at the bottom of the picture. In its frame, the drawing measures 19 x 15 inches and the actual print is 12 x 9 in size. Again this is a period print, not a page out of a magazine. It was made for special presentation and is historically important and an extremely fine WWII collectable.

PRICE: $295.00

A Tablecloth from the Berghof (Item AH 25-16)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very beautiful table cloth in silk. It is not the official type as usually encountered but it is probably a gift to him from some admirer amongst the millions of them that loved their Fuhrer. At the Berghof gifts came in like the horn of Cornacopia. Every week there were dozens and dozens of gifts from the rich, influential and famous but also gifts from the peasantry as well. Pieces that were essentially craft items made by men, women and children of the nation were pouring in to the point of making the SS men who sorted these things and filed them very busy men -- many of the items were exactly that!-- filed and it is probable that Adolf Hitler unfortunately never got to see most of them. This particular tablecloth is for a small end table cover and it is truly beautiful, in its center is a portrayal of one of the Fuhrer's favorite German legends... The Saga of Saint Hubertus. This story is pictured as the hunter and poacher Hubertus stalks an elk that was reported as the largest and most magnificant of all of his species ever encountered in the Bavarian Forest. There are several different version of the miracle that then transpired -- You can go on Google with the words ‘St. Hubertus’ or St. Hubert and see some of the legend recounted there. It is a beautiful story and tells how this poacher became a Saint due to the encounter with the Great Stag with the Holy Cross beaming between his antlers. So fine is this print (white on white) that it is very hard to picture it with our limited lighting and camera equipment but if I can be so bold to say it is genuinely gorgeous. The whole of the man and stag are surrounded on all sides with oak leaf branches and acorns depicted in a beautiful array: the cloth measures 42 inches x 19, it might be called a runner for as we have said for an end table. About 42 inches from the top of the piece is an embroidered A.H. (Adolf Hitler). This type of tablecloth would usually end up framed in an appropriate frame because the owners felt it was just so awesome looking to be wasted stretched across a table. Mark T. Griffith in his book Liberated Adolf Hitler Memorabilia  shows in his pages many tablecloths, towels and napkins all from different Hitler residences with myriad styles of AH initials and this leads me to think many of them are like this one, gifts all individually made. In any case, what we offer here is a historically important art piece extraordinare! At a very reasonable price.

PRICE: $1,150.00 Actually a Very cheap price! We tried to get the consigner to put much more on it as it is truly worth MUCH more but he wanted it to go to a deserving collector who will enjoy it as much as he did

A Creamer from the Garden Luncheons of Adolf Hitler at the Berghof  (Item AH 25-17)

DESCRIPTION: This is a milk creamer from the Berghof, Hitler’s mountain retreat high in the Bavarian Alps. We know of the same type in silver by the Wellner Company but this one is more like the hotel service style as used at the Hotel Deutscher Hoff in Nuremberg. See a set of this type service in this Hitler section of the site. Basically, this creamer is of pewter not silver. It was found in the ruins of the garage at the foot of the Berghof nothing of that building remains today because the German Bavarian Government was afraid of the Faithful using it as a shrine, but back in the 1960’s certain souvenir hunters known to us went often on a moonlit night up there and dug for relics just like fevered archeologists in an Egyptian tomb location. Many pieces of cutlery, ceramic dishes and kitchen objects were unearthed there and that is precisely where this creamer came from. The outside is in very good shape with the National Eagle and the A H intact. On the bottom are the letters H J and you can see Wellner 30 C1 15 stamped on the bottom. The inside has much corrosion from being buried for about 16 years or so; the outside has been cleaned but the inside has not and it would be quite a job to do so (best to leave it alone). The pot is about 4 ½ inches high and about 6 inches from the end of the spout to the outer edge of the handle. This is a piece of the garden terrace service of the Berghof. This terrace is seen in many color photos of the period including the ones taken by Eva Braun on this social gathering place. Hitler would entertain his guests however the formal silver service was never used there. It was used inside the house only. Why? Well, we don’t want to speculate that any of the invited guests might want a souvenir of their visit but we can’t speculate a denial of this either. After all at this time Hitler had almost a quasi-religious image and the magnetism of his mythos was overpowering and an invited guest being completely rational in every way might still be tempted! Is this the reason for pewter instead of silver?? In any case, here it is completely original and rare. By the way, the Reich chancellery dinnerware pieces were not in silver either and they were also made by Wellner as well.

Hitler Cigarette Box (Item AH 25-17a)

DESCRIPTION: This is a cigarette box from the smoking set that was part of every group made for the various locations frequented by the Führer. There were various types of manufacture on these items, but all followed a basic pattern. Dr. Mark D. Griffith in his book, Collector’s Guide to “Liberated” Adolf Hitler Memorabilia, shows on page 59 in the first volume a cigarette box identical to the one we offer. The pieces that he further refers to are classified as the “smoking set;” he shows a cigar box and a tobacco box (humidor). Under silverware on page 5 of the aforementioned book, Griffith mentions something about the formal-pattern silverware ‘800’ silver with eagle and swastika flanked by ‘A.H.’ with a classic Greek key-patterned border. This will be found on official flatware as well as boxes and miscellaneous items such as scissors and napkin holders, etc. Hitler was a lover of Greek classic art and the “Greek key” design found hand engraved on all but the flatware was said to represent the River Maeander, the ancient Greek name for the Menderes River in Turkey. This body of water that twists and turns and makes geometric patterns as it flows gives rise to the English word ‘meander,’ and also is given the name “Greek key.” This pattern was first designed by Faru Gerdy Troost, wife of Professor Paul Ludwig Troost, the chief architect of the Reich and father of the German autobahn. The boxes were for the most part produced by the firm of Bruckmann in Heilbronn. This style of flatware and boxes was found only in buildings that Hitler used personally. Now the question often arises and should arise: If the Führer was so adamantly against smoking then why would there be cigarette boxes, cigar boxes, tobacco humidors, and other such smoking-oriented piece among the groupings sent to his various abodes and offices? When Bruckmann received an order for a set of silver household items he made every piece that would fill such an order leaving nothing lacking and this included the tobacconist articles. When the order would be delivered, the SS orderlies would immediately remove the smoking articles and either spirit them off or they would be put out of sight of the chancellor under lock and key regardless of whether they were delivered to the Braunhaus, the Führerbau, the Berghof, the teahouse, the guesthouse, the Bertesgaden Reichs Chancellery, or the Berlin Reichs Chancellery. There were sets sent to the Führer’s apartment at the Prinzregentenplatz as well. Griffith says there were approximately 3,000 thousand pieces manufactured by Bruckmann, presumably, and we believe this included the flatware. So it can be said that today these larger box pieces are truly rare. Recently, a cigarette box like this one brought over $40,000 in a German auction. Will this likely happen again? Who knows? The size of this box is 6 1/2 x 4 inches, and little more than 1 1/2 inches deep. It is lined inside with cedar. The Greek-key design is, of course, hand engraved. The crown, moon, and Bruckmann mark with the silver content mark ‘800’ is stamped on the bottom rear. The condition is generally good except for two small dents along the edges; one at the right edge and one at the left edge (pictured). There is a stain or two on the top surface, but since this is, after all, silver, it will certainly clean up with a bit of silver polish. We do not clean such prodigious historic items; we leave that to the buyer. This is the classic example of Führersilber and the consigner does not want to price it out of reason. He doesn’t seem to be impressed with the Munich sale. He just wants it go to a genuine collector; however, he knows it is a very valuable item and an extremely rare historical object so we feel it is a fantastic bargain at the price.

PRICE: $15,000.00

Special Dinner Napkin and Napkin Holder from the Fuhrer-tish (Hitler’s Table)  (Item AH 25-18)

DESCRIPTION: This is ultra rare. It is the very special napkin and holder as would be used at the Fuhrer's personal table. This would be the table where the Fuhrer would actually be seated. At special functions, there would be napkins and holders at each place setting but these napkins would have the smaller embroidered eagle with the letters A H (See an example elsewhere in this section of the site). But the eagle on the very few VIP settings was as you can see much larger. This would be the ones at the seating positions for Goring, Goebbels, Himmler, Hess and any high dignitary visiting from other countries. Example, the British Royalty or Japanese and Italian Ambassadors. What is the likelihood of Adolf Hitler actually using this napkin? Almost 100% because so few of this particular type were kept at the Reichschancellary and the Berghof where formal dinners where held. At luncheons the smaller eagle napkins were used even by the Fuhrer. This one we offer here is one of the ones used for very auspicious occasions and they were kept in stewardship by the Fuhrer's personal caterer, Kannenberg who had the final say as to their usage. When folded, the napkin measures about 15 inches long. It is in perfect condition although it surely was laundered after each usage back then. This is not only a beautiful assembledge but it couldn’t be anymore historically important.

PRICE: $5,500.00 Expensive? Absolutely not! It could bring much more in a German auction.

Special Hitler Ring “Pact of Steel” (AH 25-19)

DESCRIPTION: This is an incredibly beautiful ring produced in 1940 to celebrate the Axis Alliance between Germany, Italy and Japan. If you have read the narrative on our home page entitled “About Our Rings and Silver Insignia” you will know that a man known as Franz Schnell was one of the Master silversmiths of Germany in the 20‘s and 30’s.  He worked in Halle an Der Salle, a city that is located in former East Germany but under the Third Reich it was a hub of bustling activity both industrially and a center of artistic achievement. Reinhard Heydrich was born here on March 7th, 1904. Throughout our pages one can see many of the beautiful pieces of jewelry and insignia that were produced and often originally designed by Herr Schnell who did business under the name Franz Schnell and Sohn Halle an Der Salle. This man and his son produced articles of beauty for various government groups such as the SA, SS, NSKK, various party functionaries and the Wehrmacht, the “Victory Rings” seen on our various pages were for instance his exclusive design. Besides dealing directly with the NSDAP and armed forces command, he also supplied articles of wear to many of the companies who marketed them in turn to the public and to party connections.  Companies like Gahr in Munich, Sy &Wagner in Berlin and the companies in Ludenscheid who produced 80% of all N.S. insignia turned to Schnell when something special in silver had to be produced. He was the man who was capable of producing the ‘State of the Art pieces.’ To say that his work was exemplary is an understatement. This ring with the bust portrait of Adolf Hitler is an excellent example of his acute artistic precision and inspired workmanship. One of the notable features of Schnell's jewelry mastery is his innovative scheme to place important décor on the sides of the shank of the ring (notice in our pictures the state eagles to each side that appear to be separately affixed). Also, you can see on the Victory rings (example SS-33 in our SS section) that the enamel is not only on the top but is seen to embellish the sides of the shank as well. This is to a lesser degree seen in this particular ring offered here as well. The ring is large in proportion, measuring a full inch top to bottom of the crown or top and 1 ¾ wide. From the crown to the bottom of the shank is also about one inch. The bust portrait is separately affixed to the black enamel top giving the ring a third dimensional-look. Inside the ring is the stamped number 835 which indicates the finest of pure silver utilized in construction of the better pieces. They just don’t come finer than this particular Third Reich object d’art.  We were most fortunate to be able to procure several of these pieces when the fantastic group was procured at Stuttgart. When Herr Schell produced these rings he also produced a comparable companion ring that was designed bearing the bust portrait of his Excellency Benito Mussolini in the same style. See it at I-Fascist 3-2 on our Fascist Italian pages. The Italian one has the bust portrait of “The Duce” with the Fascist National eagles affixed to the sides. The Mussolini bust is handled in the exact same style as the Hitler one. You can also see on that page that we offer the two rings as a set for a very special price.  Unlike the Hitler ring the Mussolini ring came in 3 different models. Mussolini was fully as admired by the German populace after the Pact of Steel was signed as he was in Italy. Thus Schnell received many orders for the Mussolini ring. He sold many more of these actually than he did the Hitler ring,

As a set, this would be a great investment as they can only go up in value from this point in time.  However, for the Germanophile collector this Hitler ring is the “must have” treasure most appreciated by us. Find the Mussolini ring and the set listed on page 3 of our Italian Fascist listings. So we now offer what might be considered the most gorgeous and historically important rings that Germania has ever had the pleasure to present.
