Book 1000 Pictures from 75 Years of German History (Item GEN 6-1)

DESCRIPTION: This giant book is possibly the most rare Third Reich book ever offered on the web. It was published (officially) by the military association of Fürstenwalder on the River Spree near Leipzig. No book ever published was as complete with the "whole" story of what the war was about working up through the period 1914-1918: the empires, the struggles, the war, the leaders, the battles, etc., and then the end: the inflation, revolution, the freeing of the people and saving the country by the Freebooters and the N.S. Party and then the coming of the Third Reich and that is broken into three parts: 1, the way to power; 2, the realization of power; 3, the fallen of the struggle. The pictures are no less than phenomenal with some (most) never published before. The section of martyrs of the Kampfzeit is most moving. Men, boys, and some heroic women are pictured--some in their caskets and some with grotesque wounds inflicted by red front gangsters. About 295 individual pictures document those who fell for Führer and Fatherland; mostly SA men who were foully murdered by communists and socialists who were later soundly defeated until they were reinstalled by the 1945 victors. This is a treasure of a book that should be archived for the true edification of future generations. Very rare!

PRICE:   $585.00

German Patriotic Woman's Earrings (Item GEN 6-2)

DESCRIPTION: We have several sets of lovely little swastika earrings. These were found on the card that you see pictured and they were sold originally by the Julius Bauer and Son firm in Zella Thuringen. The man whom we bought a bonanza of jewelry from made these for that firm as well as others. See Victory Rings on our page at Item SS 3-3 for further explanation of how we were able to come by this great group. The earrings are very petite and are for pierced ears. I believe that our jeweler had these for quite a few years because swastika Kitch was banned by the NSDAP as early a 1935. The party thought that a lot of these things were below the dignity of the Bewegung movement. They are nonetheless great and (now rare) mementos of the early party days. Another reason that they would have been banned was that they had little glass inserts that look like diamonds and this was highly verbot because the Führer hated diamonds equating them with Jewish jewelry. Blue sets and green sets while they last. Rare, indeed.

PRICE: $ 130.00 a pair

Hapag Line (Luxury Liner) LAH-SS Connection Grouping of China (Item GEN 6-5; SS 19-5; LEIBSS 2-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a grouping of dishes and bowls from the Hamburg-American Line. It had connections to the American Ship and Commerce Line, whose controlling interests were with Max Warburg and Prescott Bush, grandfather to George and great-grandfather to George W., all members of the infamous Skull and Bones Society. Bush, Harriman, and Warburg gained control of the Hamburg-American Line in 1920. In 1933, when Adolf Hitler assumed power in Germany, Warburg, who was a long-time advisor to Hjalmar Schacht, the Nazi Government’s Economic Minister and an executive in the Reichsbank, was selected by Prescott Bush to be the official representative of American Ship and Commerce Line on the board of the Hamburg-American Line (Hapag).Then-North German Lloyd Company merged with Hapag in Hamburg. Christian Beck, a longtime Harriman executive, was placed as manager of Freight and Operations in North America for this newly merged company called Hapag-Lloyd. At this point, SS security guards were now stationed on all ships of the company (enter the SS). Naturally, since communist agitation and possible vandalism was expected now that the thoroughly N.S. Line was established. It only followed that stringent security would be needed. Emil Hecfferich, an ardent National Socialist, was appointed Chairman of Hapag-Lloyd and he insisted that the security guards be selected from the Allgemeine-SS, thus the elite of that organization were recruited and a small group known as LAH (Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler) was attached to the individual ships sailing to America. It was in America that communist agitation was strongest and acts of sabotage were suspected to be afoot. The Hapag ships sailed into American and South American ports for years almost without incident except for a few commie bums trying to race aboard to slice the ropes and bring down the swastika flag. However, SS-LAH guards managed to grab them and dump them into the drink while Irish-American New York policemen laughed hilariously at the sight. The sailors and police officers enjoyed many a grand evening with American port officials and N.Y celebrities at special onboard and ashore. Politics seldom entered the conversations; however, operatives of the Gestapo and the American Secret Service always managed to keep an ear peeled as they infiltrated the get-togethers. The sailors of Hapag wore a typical uniform so long used by the German Navy. On their caps were bands that had the names of their usual destinations such as New York, etc. In August of 1942, Leo Crowley, the U.S. Alien Property Custodian ordered the seizure of all property of Hapag-Lloyd, but today, Hapag Lines is once more sailing the high seas and is one of the most prosperous shipping concerns going. They are mostly engaged in passenger cruise lines with the most luxurious liners afloat. Back to the SS-LAH; we have been told that these elite groups of guards lived in separate quarters within the ship’s hold and did not merge or even converse with the regular crew. That was left to the Gestapo. They had their own officers and were not subject to the jurisdiction of the officers of the ship. They never wore the black uniform of their corps. They dressed like passengers or crewmen or whatever was called for whether they were on deck or in port. They only wore the uniform, it is reported, when they celebrated (in private) such occasions as November 9th (the Putsch) or April 20th (the Führer’s birthday), and then only the officers and color guard wore them. Their mess hall was small, but looked like an SS honor hall decorated with pictures of Reichsführer-SS H. Himmler and, of course, the man who was their namesake, Adolf Hitler. Swastika flags and SS banners festooned the recreation room and the LAH library was filled with copies of Mein Kampf and other N.S. publications such as Der Schwartze Korps. Their dishes for table use were the standard Hapag Line crockery, but had the LAH logo at the crest of each dish, bowl, cup, saucer, etc. The particular pieces that we offer come from the collection of a British gentleman whose uncle brought them to the U.K. He was a British naval attaché and having the right connections, he was able to procure them from a seized Hapag ship in 1945. Naturally, he is not willing to have his name mentioned in connection with this incident or the acquisition of the article.
Description of the china:
The plates themselves are the issue style of the 1930’s recognized by their flo-blue and gold edging with the Nordic design throughout and interspersed with a north-star pattern repeated four times along the edges. In two places one can observe the logo of Hapag Lines in its distinctive shield configuration (see pictures). The china was produced by Hutschenreuther. The logo with lion and Selb Bavaria is by (L) Hutschenreuther and the mark is (under glaze) in green and according to the book Marks on German, Bohemian, and Austrian Porcelain:1710 to Present, by Robert E. Röntgen, this was the particular company logo of their porcelain from 1920 on. There is also a word “Fabrikdecoriert,” and we would construe the meaning of this to be that the frontal design was taken possibly from the curtains and especially the tablecloths that were used aboard the ships and complimented the tableware in design and (vice versa). Now, for the most important thing to be pointed out here: On each piece there is a symbol of the LAH in fancy gold lettering. This is done in the traditional manner that is recognized as the logo and symbol of the elite group Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler. The words over glaze can be seen repeatedly in the previously mentioned book and this was standard throughout the porcelain industry and was often applied to china as a first idea or as an afterthought. Our own collection includes many items that were produced in this manner, but these items were produced in the days before automatic dishwashers. Now, thereby hangs the woeful tale. Somewhere along the line these dishes were obviously sentenced and carried to one of these awful contraptions and summarily cleaned. As a direct result the ‘LAH’ symbols that would have lasted indefinitely, had the dishes been hand washed, suffered atrociously as the ‘LAH’ was nearly obliterated on many of the pieces. The damage to the over-glaze pieces can be seen in direct proportion to how they would have been stacked in the dishwasher basket. For instance, in some cases, only the bottom of the letters are damaged or erased, while the top is evident. This comes from a smaller plate being stacked on top of a larger one thereby the larger plate covers part of the other while the other part is open to the ravages of the super stream of hot water. Looking at each plate, this becomes patently obvious. On almost every piece you can at least discern part of LAH design (see pictures) On a few, 90 percent of the logo is discernable. We will sell these items on a first-come, first-served basis, unless a knowledgeable and wise entrepreneur, or serious collector wishes to purchase all of them. At present we have:
   1. Dinner plate (limited); $136 each
   2. Luncheon plates; $125 each
   3. Soup bowls (limited); $145 each
   4. Dessert plates (limited); $110 each
Regardless of the condition of the LAH design these plates are nonetheless rare and desirable to collectors of N.S. relics. The Hapag Line was the pride and joy of the German nation and Führer and it was inseparable from the saga of the Third Reich. This was the Nazi Lines, pure and simple, and the involvement of world shakers and movers definitely embellishes the historical significance. Here is a chance to acquire articles that are of extreme and profound historical importance that touch the very fabric of yesterday’s continuum that we see unraveling again today. The entire set of 17 pieces can be sold all together for a considerable discount or we will break it up as listed. We are showing one of each type piece in our image section. Remember, only a few have the LAH design intact or partially intact-first come, first served.
   Footnote: The ship that it is thought the china came from was Albert Ballin of Hansa fame. Albert Ballin was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg in 1922 for the Hamburg-American Line. Her characteristics are as follows: 20,815 gross tons; length 602.4 feet; beam 78.74; two funnels; four masts, twin screws, speed 16 knots. Accommodations were provided for 250 first-class; 340 second-class, and 1,060 third-class passengers. She was launched on December 16, 1922 and on her maiden voyage (July 5, 1923) sailed from Hamburg to Southampton and New York. In 1934, she accidentally rammed and sank the North German Lloyd vessel (tugboat) Merkur with a loss of 7 lives. Later that year she was renamed Hansa under the NSDAP government. She began her last New York voyage on July 27, 1939, and then became a naval accommodation ship at Gotenhafen. On March 6, 1945, she was sunk by a mine off Warnemunde. She was raised and taken over by the Soviet Union, refurbished, and , yet, again, renamed. At the time of her scrapping in 1981, she was the oldest passenger ship around.
