Original Period Oil Painting of Adolf Hitler (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-1;ART 18-8)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very notable depiction in oil of the Führer Adolf Hitler in 1933, when President of the Reich Paul von Hindenburg appointed him Chancellor of Germany. The patriots of Germany were so overjoyed that many of the artists brought forth portraits in oils or watercolors of their hero. Some of these works were very professional such as the one we offer here, and others were rather amateurish, but still accomplished with love and devotion to this remarkable man and the German Fatherland that he promised to make great again. Is that a familiar phrase?. We know that he definitely did so until the forces of Communism and in fact Capitalism brought him and Germany down, but for 18 years the Aryan Utopia that can be called the Imperium of the western world indeed excelled in a wonderful advanced civilization. It has often been said that Hitler had remarkable deep-blue eyes which persons including Traudl Junge, his last secretary, referred to unequivocally as having a distinctly hypnotic quality. Paul Joseph Goebbels described his first meeting with Adolf Hitler in his diary. He said: “He shakes my hand like an old friend and those big, blue eyes are like stars. He is glad to see me. I am in heaven! That man has everything to be king.” We make these historical observations because it appears that the artist that executed this portrait has more than faithfully brought out those magnetic eyes in greater authenticity and feeling than any other depiction we have ever seen of the Führer. The brilliant handling of the face is greatly professional and the artist brings out quite authentically the subject’s Prussian military hairstyle flowing forward and to the side. He also visits quite professionally the famous facial hair called a “toothbrush moustache.” The Führer is seen here wearing his historically famous trench coat while underneath we can see a brown tunic with cross belt strap and necktie with an N.S. eagle stickpin attached. The painting is signed in reddish color up in the very top-right corner. However, we cannot make it out the signature. The painting is on board not canvas which is of course often more conducive to gaining high detail in facial portraiture than if done on canvas that is if practically photographic quality is sought after and achieved. This was certainly achieved in this case. The portrait is mounted in what obviously is a period frame tinted in gold upon the wood. The matting is deluxe in that it is of genuine soft, brown velvet fabric sometimes used in the 1930s in framing special art renderings. The actual painting measures 17½ by 14½ inches while the four tiered frame measures on the outside 25 x 22 inches. The painting is in excellent shape without any noticeable scratches or abrasions and the superb frame is in perfect condition, as well. This is an absolutely stunning rendering of the man whom TIME magazine called “The Man of the Year” in its annual issue of 1938. No individual ever put his name and countenance on history more than this man and practically all the biographers take completely dubious license in telling his saga (generally falsified and almost always fabricated, purposely misleading and in many instances entirely concocted). So, in peril of repetitive discourse, I have to say here is one of the best artistic likenesses of the German leader that we have ever encountered or been able to offer the collecting field. You would be truly fortunate to procure this magnificent portrait.

PRICE: $3,650.00; Special offer by our consignor-worth much more!

 Magnificent Painting in Oil of Adolf Hitler by a Major Listed German Artist (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-2)

DESCRIPTION:  Here is the finest painting of the Führer that we have ever encountered. The artist is Otto Vittali (1872-1958). He lived in Offenburg. He was half Italian, his forefathers having immigrated in 1804 from Bellano Province, Como, Italy. He studied at the art schools in Karlsruhe and Munich and worked later in the studio of Professor Linnemann in Frankfurt. His father was famous for glass painting. Young Otto thought to someday take over his father’s art and he made a scholastic trip to America. The young man made himself independent and perfected his skills in Berlin. Here he received significant orders because of his overriding skill. He received several commissions from the Hohenzollern Imperial Palace. The orders from royalty were usually requests to do heraldic window hangings; in German Fensterglasbilder. These beautiful hand-painted items were considered national treasures In Germany. If you would like to see some wonderful examples of these art forms be sure to visit our Kaiser Reich section at Heraldic Window Hangings . He also did many stained-glass windows for the churches and cathedrals to include the German National Cathedral in Berlin and also the famed Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) located on the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin. This was the place of worship for the family of Kaisers Wilhelm I and II. Vittali painted seven church-window scenes by order of the Prussian empress and by order of Kaiser Wilhelm II. He painted the famed painting of the Ascension Church of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. He also painted the frieze in the garden façade of the Hotel Adlon in Berlin. Vittali helped in the construction of this famed hotel while on an artistic advisory board. In 1910, he studied ceramic art in Paris. He also invented a machine for the production of autotype low-pressure grips. Other inventions too numerous to recount were processed by this man who absolutely bordered on genius. No doubt, there would have been much more if WWI had not intervened against these hopeful developments. He now became a soldier and an artillery officer; he invented a graphic flight-path table that made the earlier artillery calculations superfluous. He then found some time to turn to portrait painting as well as landscape scenes. He portrays military generals and creates some fine depictions of Polish peasants and their daily lives. He created very impressive pictures of the wide Polish-Russian countryside; many of these are still in the family estate. After the war, he drew and designed etchings, original stone drawings, ex-libris plates, and illustrations for books plus technical and promotional drawings for various large cooperations. He loved to paint scenes from his beloved Baden countryside. These often were oversized renderings. He painted portraits of many important people in the Markgräflerland, and priests, lawyers, and many paintings of the town buildings of Offenburg, the medieval town that existed from 1163. The list of his rich artistic masterpieces are legion. Some of the ones of gathering thunderstorms in the Black Forest and many others when found today are certainly treasured. Up to 1953, he counted 1,593 pictures and 689 portraits, and not counted are the countless watercolors and sketches as well as his wonderful examples of glass paintings. Badenland should have the works of Otto Vittali posted highly in her honorary hall. The glorification on art of Baden’s lovely scenery by this master should never be lost to future generations.

The Painting

The masterpiece was done by Vittali in 1933. This was the year of the “Machtergreifung,” the ascension to power of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party or NSDAP. Adolf Hitler had just been appointed Reich’s Chancellor by President Paul von Hindenburg and all patriotic Germans were in absolute ecstasy including, of course, the artists. Many works of art both professional and amateurish emerged with motifs of Hitler and his NS Party. However, having collected and studied numerous Hitler portraits of the period, we must hasten to add that never have we ever observed a better likeness of the German leader as this one from the brush of Otto Vittali. It’s almost as if Hitler actually sat for this amazing portrait. The colors, the detailing, the stark realism are so evident as to easily be called a more than an excellent rendering, if not a masterpiece. The Führer looks like he could speak! Please forgive my exaggeration if it could be said to be such, but we have seldom been so completely awestruck with a painting in our long career in this field.

The Painting’s Story

The canvas measures 19 ½ x 20 inches and in the frame it is 28 ½ x 23 inches. (We had it eventually framed). There is damage to the surface as you can readily see, but the face is pretty much undamaged; to be repaired would be an easy project for a professional art restorer. Now, how did it get this minimal damage? Let’s go back to 1945 in Munich. A certain GI was assigned to duty at Munich’s Rathaus (city hall). He was designated a guard while the army intelligence team was sorting things from room to room, office to office. The Rathaus is huge. Our GI noticed that not only those so-called Monuments Men were hard at work but also certain officers were in and out for three days hauling off souvenirs and some of them even bragged about it to him. The GI was sternly warned however that if he were to even touch anything he would be in a “world of trouble.” This order rather stuck in his craw. Why should the brass be able to loot everything while a common dogface should be denied? So, on his third day of duty there, he entered a room that had a huge, long table and more than 25 chairs all with carved swastikas on them. There was also a speaker’s rostrum and inside the hollowed back of that rostrum sat this portrait of Hitler in a frame. He deduced by the holes in the wall behind that this picture probably hung there behind the speakers and how the officers had missed this he couldn’t imagine because of the obvious beauty of the rendering and frankly, because he had found no significant war trophy yet he decided to have it. Yet, he knew he could be charged with theft if he was caught as he tried to get it out in its heavy frame so after thinking about it, he decided to cut it from the frame with his pocket knife. He did this carefully and then he removed his shirt and undershirt and wrapped it around his trunk and secured it with his boot strings. It was four hours until the end of his tour of duty and he had to wear this canvas under his shirt all that time. Many times various officers, MPs, and his own company commander passed him and he said he was a nervous wreck while hoping nothing would be discovered. Later, far from that scene, he had to declare the piece to a declarations captain at Infantry HQ Command #1873 and that captain, who had no knowledge of the city-hall incidents, examined the four articles that the GI declared. (He successfully had added this great painting to his treasure trove). After it was bought there was a phone call from him and he said he had a medal on a string that he had found on the back of the frame that he removed and he had over the years forgotten about it. He said this medal—as he called it—was fastened to the back of the original picture frame and at the time he removed it he shoved it in his pocket and now he sent us a photo of it. To make it even more exciting, he wanted more money for this and when we saw what it was we felt it should be bought. The medallion is a bronze fob-style affair that has the Athena figure with the National Socialist eagle and the Torch of Enlightenment and it says along its edges: “AUSGESTELLT IM HAUS DER DEUTSCHEN KUNST 1941.” Translated it has the meaning that this painting could have been displayed at the House of German Art in Munich; however, when we searched our catalogues from the 1940s, we could find no record of a Vittali painting ever put on official exhibition at the gallery. However, the word “ausgestellt” has several meanings according to our translator. First, it can mean ‘displayed’ or ‘to be on display” as in to possibly be on display at the museum. Obviously, the latter seems to be the case in 1941. With the war already raging for Germany, turmoil was evident on every front; military and civil. The museums were short staffed and much of the staff were now soldiers or very involved in wartime necessities. From the museum’s opening in 1937, staff meetings with artists were held on a regular basis and certain artistic themes were discussed and appropriate themes for the particular time were chosen. Our theory is that Vittali’s Hitler painting was decidedly more than worthy of being considered and that is why he was given the medallion with the promise of future inclusion in the galleries. This was in 1941 and Vittali’s portrait shows the Führer dressed in the uniform of the earlier Kampzeit brown uniform (Kampzeit: struggle for power) and from 1939 on he was always dressed in the grey-green uniform that he swore to wear until Germany was victorious. Well, as fate would have it, the Vittali painting never did make it as far as actually being displayed at the gallery of the museum. It is only too bad that it was not entered in 1937 or 1934 because if that would have been the case we are sure it would have been right there on the gallery wall along with many other images of “der grosse Befreier,” Adolf Hitler. But it did make it to an honored place on the wall of the Munich City Hall. We are most thrilled that we were able to procure this precious medallion along with the treasured portrait. Maybe Otto Vittali’s painting never made it to the Haus der Deutschen Kunst, but the fact that he was considered seems to confer the possible title of “masterpiece” in this, his work. We are told that between 3,000 and 4,000 artworks would be considered by the museum’s directors and advisors each July and fewer than 100 were annually selected to be in the class of semifinalists and then out of these 30 to 40 ended up being chosen for actual exhibition, while some of the best considered excellent were often scheduled for later consideration and the artist is issued the coveted medallion. Therefore, here is the portrait that Germania International is so very proud to present to the collector world. The condition is as seen in our images presented. The damage comes from the rather novel way that our GI looter chose to convey it past all the brass and MPs. It is fortunate that the actual countenance of the Führer is pretty much undamaged and can, as we indicated, be rather reasonably restored. Here is a chance to procure for yourself a true artistic treasure of that world’s shaking turbulent time and a prodigiously great historically important objet d’art.

PRICE: $58,000.00; includes the portrait in oil and the House of Art medallion. This is a great and stupendous investment offered at this time. Its value can only go UP!

Original Early Sketch by Adolf Hitler Accompanied With Official Provenance (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-3; AH 26-22 & ART 17-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an incredible find. A great sketch rendered by Adolf Hitler just before WW I. The sketch is of the famed Munich Isator (the old city gate that dates from the 14th century. As fate would have it the famous Beer Hall Putsch of Nov 9th, 1923 proceeded through the Isator.  You can see Hitler and his followers passing through it on that fateful day. See it on a site named Hitler pages München.)

There were four gates that were entrance points of the old walled city.  The Karl’s Gate, the Sendlingern gate, the Schwabingertor and the Isator. Only the Schwabingertor is no longer there (demolished at the beginning of the 19th century). The famous Feldherrenhalle stands at that site today. In 1984 Billy V. Price of Texas published a book on Adolf Hitler’s art titled ‘Adolf Hitler the Unknown Artist.’ In this beautiful edition he shows many Hitler oils, watercolors and sketches done by Germany’s future Fuhrer in his early years. It is interesting to note that Hitler was somehow inspired by these Munich gates and often portrayed them in his art renderings. In Price's book there are several depictions in sketches of the Sendlinger Tor, and the Karlstor but none of the Isator. Now it only stands to reason that he would have sketched the three gates that still existed in his time. When one observes the watercolor of the Sendlinger Tor on page 175, at the bottom of the page you can sense the identical style as seen in the sketch we offer here. We believe we have turned up the missing gate by A. Hitler. So here we proudly present the Isortor and with this rendering is an official provenance dated August 2, 1981 by Professor August Priesack. This man and one Herr Peter Jahn of Vienna (both deceased) were the only reliable persons who were known and trusted researchers of Hitler paintings and sketches. Herr Jahn was a noted authority of Hitler’s art and actually was employed by Reichskanzler Hitler when in 1935 a systematic search for Hitler’s art was given an official status by the historical research division of the NSDAP central archival authority. Jahn was given the task of recovering Hitler’s works of art. This so-called ‘secret section’ was exclusively involved in researching Hitler’s past. Two archivists Wilhelm Dammn and Dr. Professor August Priesack worked together and were responsible for authenticating all Hitler art that could be purchased or borrowed. The actual search for the artworks was carried out by the staff members under the departmental jurisdiction of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess. When a painting or drawing was located, the staff’s cultural attaché Dr. Ernst Schulte-Strathaus turned over the work to Herr Dammann and Dr.Professor Priesack for thorough examination. Two years after the Munich team of Dammann and Priesack had begun its work the Chief Officer of the German Embassy in Vienna Baron Otto Von Stein contracted the Viennese art historian and dealer Peter Jahn at the behest of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP and requested his help in locating those of the Führer's works done in Austria. Herr Jahn took the assignment and on two occasions personally delivered paintings to the NSDAP headquarters in Munich where he met Hitler and discussed art and Hitler’s early experiences in Vienna. Before his death Dr. Priesack had accomplished significant research in the field and possessed the largest collection of documentation on Hitler’s art in the world.  With Peter Jahn these two men were considered the last surviving experts on the authentication of Adolf Hitler’s art.  Without the accompaniment of provenance of either of these two historians and researchers one can never be quite sure of the authenticity of Hitler’s paintings or sketches. 

We are proud of this marvelous acquisition with Dr. Priesack's signed statement accompanying it. The Isator sketch is measured at 24 x 32 and the respected professor basically says:   (Expertise)

“The above is a photocopy that shows a finely executed pencil drawing,  of the stable-end of the Munich Isator and is a genuine work of the artist Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) the original size is 24 x 32 (cm). This rendering was originated circa 1913-1914 and produced when his signature corresponds within this date.  This was a favorite motif of Adolf Hitler. Offered by Dr. A. Priesack since 1935 specialist of or the works of Adolf Hitler (Munich 8.2.1981)."

Dr. Priesack's archive stamp also appears with his former office address, and it of course signed in hand by the professor. The Hitler signature is just as the Herr Professor has indicated, correct for that early time in Hitler’s life. The sketch is nicely framed and matted on a special hand-made frame measuring 18 ½ by 29 ½ inches. The actual drawing is about 12 inches by 10 inches mounted and matted. Within the frame is a 6 ½ x 8 ½ copy of an early picture of the young Hitler. The drawing is museum mounted (not glued) inside the frame and the glass is of special non-glare construction that makes the glass virtually invisible with UV filtering.  The matting is expertly done with expensive craft paper and the sketch is deeply set to avoid contact with the glass. Spacers were utilized. The result is that the artwork looks to be floating in the frame.  This is the most desirable method when framing an important art work such as this. The framing of this sketch was done with absolute mastery of the framing art.  A copy of the Preisack letter is in a pocket on the back of the frame but the original letter goes with the purchase of course. Here is a rare chance to own an authentic drawing by the 20th century’s most famous world leader.  A man whose watercolors are highly sought after and bring “astronomical prices” while the renderings of Winston Churchill (who fancied himself an artist and ‘Ike’ Eisenhower’s paintings bring very little on the art market) but before anyone jumps to the conclusion that it is only the morbid collector who would collect Hitler’s paintings and drawings because of his so-called “evil image”-(debatable!)  Think about war criminal Churchill’s orders resulting in the genocide perpetrated against the thousands of innocent people of Dresden and “Ike’s outright heinous genocidal order murdering nearly a million German POWs in the prisoner of war camps along the Rhine in 1945. (Please read David Irving’s “Destruction of Dresden” and James Bacque’s, “Other Losses” available from Amazon books on the internet). Adolf Hitler was in fact a darned good artist while Winnie and Ike were less than mediocre as painters.

PRICE: $15,000.00.  This is a great investment for the price of this leader’s special art that will continue to elevate in value quickly in a very short time

A Genuine Hand Painted Portrait of the Fuhrer on Ivory with Ivory Frame (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-4; AH 26-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a German tradition that goes back for centuries. It became customary to encase hand painted portraits on elephant ivory of famous personages in frames that were constructed also in genuine ivory. The ivory was fitted by hand from plainchants that were usually purchased from piano manufacturers and as you can see some of the pieces were the size of piano keys.  See our Fredrick the Great section where you will see more of this particular art form as historically used. The frame measures 4 ¾ x 6 inches. The picture with the inner copper bezil measures 3 ½ x 2 ¾.  The likeness of the German Fuhrer is no less than astounding! In artistic presentation it depicts him as he looked shortly after his assumption of complete political power in 1933.  He wears the famous overcoat that he wore all during the Kampfzeit (the struggle for power). His ever penetrating blue eyes are fixed upon Germany’s future and the entire countenance is strong yet deeply inspirited. The tones and detail are fabulous as the depiction captures the depth and perception of the man who Time Magazine called the Man of the Year in 1933 with his picture on their cover. He beat out Roosevelt who also was elected in that year. This is not only an art treasure, but a prodigiously important piece of history (completely unique!).

PRICE: $2,850.00  A great investment piece

A Fabulous Portrait of Adolf Hitler Painted on Ivory (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-5; AH 26-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is an extremely fine hand painted rendering of the Fuhrer intricately executed to the furthermost artistic degree of detail. The painting depicts him in his brown political uniform. This was the official state service dress that he wore after his elevation to Reichs Chancelor in 1933. He daily wore an outfit like this until the first day of the war breaking out in 1939 and thereafter he wore the field grey uniform until the end. It has for centuries been a German tradition to do hand paintings of famous leaders on ivory plainchants such as this. Generally the best of them were also framed in ivory as well as is the case here. Companies that made ivory piano keys would often sell excess ivory material to the artists who then would painstakingly fit the pieces together to create a beautiful frame to significantly contain the portrait. Sometimes silver was also utilized but the one we offer here is purely ivory throughout with the only other material used being a beautiful brass bezil that traces the outline of the picture. A ‘bubble’ surface glass cover is used over the rendering. The frame measures 5 ¾ inches x 4 ¾ inches. The painting is measured at 2 ½" x 3 ¼".  The ivory frame is about ¼ inches thick. The back is covered with a dark grey fabric material and there is a small label that reads: G. Binder in the MaximillianPlatz and in German it indicates that Herr Binder was a framemaker. Different than most miniature ivory portraits, this frame supplied has a mounted stand up bar on the back to facilitate its standing on a table or desk. But there is also a ring in case the owner might prefer to hang the portrait on a wall. The artistic craftsmanship overall is exquisite and the portrait is utterly phenominal. The artist brings out dramatically the countenance of Germany’s Leader in brilliant detail that could not be surpassed except for one example of one in silver framing that Germania will acquire soon. These miniatures are so rare that we will immediately book flight to Germany if necessary when we hear of one that might be for sale. That in fact was the case with his one. We decided we would not lose it. So off we went and of course combined the quest with buying other great relics but this miniature was the main reason for the trip. (It is that good!). If one would wish to have just one important Hitler item, this would certainly be a wise chose. 

PRICE: $2,500.00 but if the art world were at all sane today then it certainly should bring more than a Picasso, right?

Original Period Pencil Drawing of the Führer (tem ANTIQUE HITLER 1-6; AH 26-18)

DESCRIPTION: This is an incredibly fine and true to life rendering of Adolf Hitler in the time of the (Kampfzeit) struggle for power. This is a period piece done in 1935 as is indicated on the back. There is writing in German there but I can’t distinguish its meaning. It is old writing and partially obliterated through time but the 1935 is bold.  Remember, this is an original drawing from the actual time of the Third Reich; very well presented and historically important for certain.  It is signed but I can’t make out the name.  The frame is original to the piece and measures 9 ¾ x 12.  The actual drawing is 4 ¾ x 6 ½.  I can’t say enough about this item; it is a pretty good work and belongs in a good collection or museum archive.

PRICE: $485.00 very, very reasonable

Hitler Rosenthal Plaque by State Portrait Artist Willy Exner (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-7; AH 26-21)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a portrait of the Führer at the height of his power wearing the famed great coat.  The painting was officially the state portrait and hung in public buildings, schools and official offices throughout the Reich. Willy Exner was said to be one of the favorite artists of Hitler himself. The finished portrait certainly brings out the determination and resolve of the man. See also the larger Exner piece at AH 22-2. This smaller rendering has its original frame as supplied with the porcelain by the Rosenthal Company. A website identified as “Ruptured something or another” said that these pieces were sold unframed and it was left to the buyer to frame them. This is only partially true. They were sold unframed or framed with the buyer having the option. In this case the one that we have is in the distinctive Rosenthal frame.  It measures 7 inches wide by 9 inches tall by itself and with frame it measures 10 ½ x 13. The Rosenthal Company that is now in New Democratic Germany doesn’t like to admit that they produced these and that they were the most popular porcelain item that they ever made (ever!). Most of them were destroyed after the war and these are quite rare today. The back of the plaque has the Rosenthal emblem in print and also the Rosenthal sticker slightly worn and the title – Der Führer Gemalde von Will Exner.  (Painted by Willy Exner). Also someone back then wrote in German -- Deutsche Weihnacht 1938 in Der Befreiten Ostmark.  This translates to Germanic Christmas 1938 in liberated Austria.  Austria was annexed to Germany 12 March 1938 due to a popular plebiscite of 73% or more of the populace who were overjoyed to be able to once more be part of the greater German Reich. Most actual records of the time show that it was by a plurality of over 90 %. Flags, books, gifts of all kinds with swastikas and especially items with the likeness of the German Führer were produced and enjoyed and treasured by the joyful people of this Ostmark, this brother land!

So, this Rosenthal Hitler plaque or porcelain picture was probably one of the finer Anschluss gifts that was given during this momentous time. The condition is perfect and the idea spectacular. Rosenthal was one of the finest porcelain manufacturers in Europe. A beautiful and prodigiously important historical relic of the turbulent time

Hand-Painted Likeness of Adolf Hitler on a Cigarette Case (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-8; AH 26-28)

DESCRIPTION: Here is what I would call the “ultimate in a Kampfzeit articles” (Kampfzeit = Time of Struggle). Here is the depiction of the man who would rise to Führer of his nation and is pictured as he looked in the 1920’s—about the time of the famed “Beer Hall Putsch.” Because of the artistic mastery of the artist, he has captured all the resolve and determination of this man, whose march to destiny could not be curtailed until it was finally met in 1945. At this point, however, he was the struggling revolutionary who was dedicated to awakening his nation to the dangers it faced from international communism. Deutschland Erwache (“Germany Awake!”), this motto of the NS party, was proclaimed now from the Rhine to the Elbe. We present now this extremely rare pre-1933 fine, artistic accomplishment. It would not have been painted on a cigarette box after 1933, as smoking was highly discouraged and even forbidden in party circles once the NSDAP was in power, and a cigarette case bearing the likeness of the Führer? Never! So, you can see how utterly rare this object truly is. This man’s mission, as he saw it, was a great crusade to bring Germany into the halls of an Aryan “Imperium” and he almost accomplished it! His is the story of an almost impossible rise to greatness from virtually nothing, yet he was destined to become the most powerful individual that the world has ever seen or probably ever will; however, here he is as the young rabble rouser—as his enemies called him. He is seen in the brown shirt and N.S. armband, and this was his outfit of the 1920’s and early 30’s. These were the days of the fierce street battles between his brown-shirt SA (Sturmabteilung) “Storm Troopers” and the red rabble of the murderous 'Rot Front' gangsters. This was the “make or break period” and Hitler persevered when all seemed hopeless and lost; finally, in 1933, it all emerged as worth all the struggle and loss–Germany was awake! The case is made of alpaca silver and is so marked. Alpaca is otherwise known as German silver and the word “Alpaca” is so marked inside the rim. The painting is in fine shape with the slightest of scratches visible only under magnification. The case measures 3 x 3 ¼ inches, which is the standard size for a cigarette box of that time. The case closes tightly shut with an audible SNAP! There is a curvature to the case just as the best of these cases were constructed to fit the curvature of the body of the person who carries it in the shirt or hip pocket. As Hitler-related items go, I would have to say that this one is not only unusual and rare, but prodigiously important to contemporary history, as well. The excellence of the hand painting is obvious and this iconic image is something very special. Wunderbar!

PRICE: Price $2,500.00; an excellent investment, indeed

Adolf Hitler “Die Intarsie” (Marquetry) (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-9; AH 26-29)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a National Socialist relic that is not only a prodigiously historically important relic, but is an accomplished art masterpiece, in our opinion. Intarsie translates to the English word “Marquetry,” but in fact, this word might have French origins. In any case, it is the highly skilled art of inlaying material such as wood piece by piece into a wood surface for the creation of a work of finished art. This process was often accomplished in fine and elegant furniture but also in portraits such as this one that we offer here. Another way this marquetry is described comes with the word “intarsia” and it reached a high point of development in its use by the Dutch and Germans in the 17th century. Very few major intarsia artists were capable in later centuries; however, there were some twentieth-century artists, mostly in Germany, who excelled in the art. The picture of Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler done in this manner is quite exceptional. Imagine for a moment the skillful application and it is awesome indeed. To be able to hand set pieces of wood into a wooden slab and make it a realistic portrait of a human being and with upmost accuracy is nothing short of ‘mind boggling.’ To paint a portrait is one thing, but to create an exact likeness in this genre is almost impossible to contemplate. The picture is 12 x 9 ½ inches in size and it has a narrative on the back that first explains in German the art of Intarsie and then speaks about this particular piece and tells about the fact that this Hitler portrait was assembled with 19 different species of wood:
1. Pear
2. Ebony
3. Holly
4. Walnut
5. White plane-tree
6. Boxwood
7. Makassar Ebony
8. Lemon
9. Cherry
10. American ash
11. Swedish birch
12. Zebrawood
13. Mahogany
14. Grey plane-tree
15. Oak
16. Australian ash
17. French walnut
18. Light rosewood
19. Hazelwood
There are 86 single pieces and the framing section is made from aged Mackasar ebony and this art piece was registered as an official Reichspatent; in other words, a “National Treasure” of sorts. The description above starts with the statement that the project was begun with much love and handwork, excellence, and dedicated to the subject of the portrait of Herr Adolf Hitler. The project succeeded in depicting a remarkable lifelike image of the German leader as well as any painted portrait could do. The artist has even remarkably brought forward the special eyes of the subject so often visited in story and song. No politician before or since had this special magnetism reflected in the eyes. To be able to realistically capture this in marquetry is amazing and beyond! Even the rakish angle of his necktie is Hitler ‘all the way.’ Here is an ultra-important historical item, but also an item that is unique and an example of a long-lost art.

Large Watercolor of the Führer; Very Possibly an Official State Portrait (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-10; AH 28-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the very greatest paintings we have ever seen of Hitler in watercolor mode. First, please be given to understand that this is a 100-percent period painting done in 1941 (not a copy!). The artist is R. Winzen and we are still at the research stage regarding this name that is signed in the right-hand corner. The last name is certainly Winzen; however, at this time we cannot make out the first name. This painting would almost have to be considered a state portrait; it is just that fine, but Hitler did not pose for it. He never posed for any painting. He was just too busy every moment of his life to afford practically a moment’s pause. He did in the very early days pose momentarily to be photographed by Heinrich Hoffman, his personal photographer, but he never posed for the painters within the Reich. The only other moments when he actually was known to stand still was when he was attending one of Richard Wagner’s operas and then, of course, he was completely composed and at the same time overwhelmingly enthralled! An almost hypnotic spell overcame his body and soul and this is borne out by numerous witnesses to include his close boyhood friend, August Kubizek, in his book The Young Hitler I Knew. In 1933, when he ascended to power, thousands of paintings were accomplished of him. No world leader to date ever enjoyed such enormous popularity in the last numerous decades (at least since Napoleon). All the renderings were done from photos and listed artists did a few. By listed we mean artists that had reached some fame or at least had paintings accomplished that were noted in art gazettes and displayed in galleries. We are still researching the painter R. Winzen and we are sure he/she must be noted somewhere. If any art historian can assist us in this project, we would be very grateful if only because it is quite evident that the artist was rather a master in his own right. The Führer is seen in super-realistic form without a flaw. It is as though the painting could speak! Seldom does any painting pick up such realistic presentation and laudable verdict in human depiction. The face is perfectly lifelike! The clothing is also quite convincing with every flowing wrinkle, as it should be. The color toning of the garment is done expertly and those medals and insignia seen upon it are depicted in realistic and historical accuracy. These medals were the only decorations Adolf Hitler ever wore. Although he had won the Iron Cross Second Class, he never wore it. He only wore the First Class award of this medal of bravery and above this he wore the Golden Party pin of the NSDAP, and below this badge of honor and loyalty he wore the German wound badge. There were all sorts of N.S.D.A.P badges that he qualified for, but he chose to wear none of them, and was always seen wearing these three decorations, two of which he won as a brave soldier in the First World War and he wore them on every occasion. This painting in fact could have been meant to depict him as he made his famous speech before the Wehrmacht and Reichstag in his declaration of war on Poland in 1939. The painting was done in 1941, but the event was still in everyone’s mind because all patriotic Germans felt strongly that Poland should be severely punished for the horrible atrocities perpetrated against the German minority living there in 1939. The massacre at Bromberg stands out especially in the annals of heinous war crimes and now Hitler was having no more of it! On September 1, 1939, Germany launched its military forces against the Polish frontier. When the Führer declared war, he was seen in a pose much like this depiction in the Winzen painting and certainly, his outfit was exactly as depicted in the artwork. So, obviously the artist has pictured an earth-shattering event in his accurate portrayal. This sort of sets this depiction apart from 95 percent of paintings of Hitler that usually are bust portraits or full standing canvases that give at least the appearance of being posed. This depiction is of an actual historical event. We believe a watercolor was chosen because the crisp, neat lines bring out detail and feeling a bit more than oil paintings in at least some cases. The paining, having been sealed in glass, has suffered some damage on the lowest portion near the edge of the frame, but this is not going anywhere. Watercolors were practically always sealed under glass especially if they were considered very important and were to be preserved for history, but unfortunately this made them quite vulnerable to aging distress and even the breaking of the glass. This wonderful artwork must be treated like the prodigiously valuable historic document that it surely is. We believe the frame to be original. The size measures at 32 x 11 inches and the frame is another three inches wide. This is just about the most exciting and dramatic Hitler image we have ever seen and we have been looking at them as a compendium of over 100 years if all of our separate experience is recounted. We have visited some of the greatest collections and museum accumulations in at least four European nations and this painting would be voted the best for color, action, and detail hands down! Elsewhere on our site you will occasion a half-bust portrait of Adolf Hitler in oil by the German master artist Otto Vittali that we also feature, but then that is another story; more on that later! So, collectors, here is a chance to own what would be considered a “National Treasure” if times were different. But now, in this Orwellian world, this work simply for now has to be considered a precious “diamond” yet undiscovered! with the hopes that the future might yet spring forth with some semblance of academic and artistic freedom and maybe even the possibility of truth and historical revision bursting to the surface, finally. This treasure of the turbulent past invites your stewardship meine Freund und Bewegungsglauber.

Great Original Print Depicting Adolf Hitler (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-11; 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.

Fensterglas depicting Adolf Hitler and Hermann Göring (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-12; AH 20-2; ART 13-10; GOR 8-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very rare Fensterglas, or window hanging, in hand-painted glass. This is done with a process of painting on top of the glass and reverse, as well (a true German art form). This depicts the Führer and the Reichsmarschal as they go over battle maps and plans together. It is beautifully done and measures 11 x 9 inches in its oak frame. The glass itself is 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches and is in wonderful condition and a real art rarity.

Hitler Rosenthal Plaque Painted by Willy Exner (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-13; AH 22-2)

DESCRIPTION: Exner was a great artist working in the era of the Third Reich. He painted several prominent Third Reich figures including Hermann Göring, Goebbels, etc. His portrait of the Führer was so popular that it was displayed in schools, offices, and public institutions throughout the Reich. You can see a print of Exner’s famous painting at Item AH 5-2. This one, however, is the Exner painting on porcelain and this brings out the color and detail to its zenith! The porcelain was produced by the famed Rosenthal Company and is clearly marked on the back. The condition is mint on its obverse, but one of the Rosenthal paper labels is missing on the back (no big thing!). The plaque is large—12 1/2 x 10 inches. They were sold by the Rosenthal Company unframed and it was left to the buyer to frame them. This is nothing short of a magnificent rendering. It depicts the Führer in his fifties shown here in his famous greatcoat. This is a historical treasure indeed, and at a very reasonable price.

PRICE:   $2,500.00; a far-less-interesting, but vintage Rosenthal plaque of this size would cost this much today

Tapestry of the Führer (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-14; AH 15-7; ART 10-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an actual period tapestry depicting Adolf Hitler in the uniform of the Deutsches Kampfzeit 1922-1933. This was the time that the NS Party was in the greatest struggle. This is the young Hitler and the artist has captured all the leader’s youthful exuberance and ironclad determination. The manner of capturing not only a true likeness in this art form, but also the vibrant colors and treatment of fabric and accouterments is truly phenomenal. Seldom have we seen better. The shadowing is superb. It measures 16 x 20 inches in the frame. The actual tapestry is 14 x 17 1/2 inches. The frame is new, but in keeping with the type that would have been used. This is a fine historic treasure from the saga of the Third Reich.

PRICE: $1,500.00

Adolf Hitler Icon (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-15; AH 13-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great rendering on board of the German leader done in the style of an icon. We have never seen so realistic a portrayal of the Führer as seen here in the uniform of the 1920’s Kampfzeit. He is shown in this wooden plaque with a burl background to simulate pinewood. The piercing eyes are perceived by the artist to full recognition. Hitler’s whole countenance has been called hypnotic. He certainly was the ultimate and inspired leader. His followers revered him as almost a saint, thus the word icon is apropos. The plaque measures 8 ¾ x 11 ½ inches. This is a great Kampfzeit item clearly from the preelection period. This was the time of struggle when the future Führer was barnstorming the Fatherland speaking and campaigning The details of the picture is phenomenal!

Original Hitler Posters (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-16; AH 6-8)

DESCRIPTION: Actually these are not posters in the actual sense. They are prints made for framing. They are from the Heinrich Hoffman studios in Munich. They were made for distribution to schools, public building, etc. They were also sold to patriotic people for display in their homes and businesses. These prints were found about 20 years ago in Germany in a warehouse auction lot the old wrapper that they were packaged in literally fell apart, but it was marked "Eigentum Heinrich Hoffmann verlag Munchen." The condition is naturally excellent because of careful storage. There are two types. One is of the Führer in the official state portrait in the Feldgrau uniform (standing) as he made the famous Reichstag speech declaring war on Poland. The other is the bust portrait of the Führer in the brown political tunic that he wore prior to 1939. Both portraits have the facsimile signatures of Adolf Hitler under the picture. The entire print is 15 ¾ x 19 ¾ inches. The actual picture portion is 12 x 9 ¼. Very fine and of course historically important.

PRICE: $125.00 each  Please pick A or B; however if you want both make it $225.00 for the pair. These can be sent rolled and sent in a tube or if you prefer we can send them in a large cardboard box, but in this case we would have to take it to a professional shipper and this is much more expensive. We have had no problem thus far with sending in the tube.   


We now have only print (A); print (B) is sold out.

Original Picture of Hitler (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-17; AH 5-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is the style of picture of the Reichkanzler that was put in government buildings and schools during the Third Reich era. This is a completely original-period print taken from the famous portrait by Will Exner. The frame, while not being period, might as well be! It is with relief oak leaves so popular during the Rich and the symbol of German strength. This is one of the best Führer portraits ever done. It measures 20 ½ x 24 inches with frame. Print itself measures 14 ¼ x 18.

Adolf Hitler Tapestry (Item ANTIQUE HITLER 1-18; AH 4-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is a machine-woven tapestry circa 1930's showing the Führer in the pre-1933 election uniform know as Der Kampfzeit Tracht, the uniform of the Time of Struggle. The likeness is phenomenal. It measures 16 inches across and is 18 inches high. The soft pastel-looking finish is quite pleasing and it certainly could be said that this is a very rare art object of the turbulent history of the NSDAP. They don't come better. It should be framed and would be a great center piece in a Nazi-Party collection.
