Cased Set of Souvenir Spoons from -Heimwehr Danzig (Item WAF 14-16; COLLECTORSPOONS 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: The SS-Heimwehr Danzig was formed in June 1939, when the senate of Danzig decided to create a defense force. Himmler volunteered to raise it and SS-Sturmbann Goetze, of SS-Totenkopf-Standarte 4 Ostmark, was transferred from Berlin. The Sturmbann was reinforced by an antitank company (Panzerabwehr-Lehrsturm der SS-Totenkopfstandarten) and 500 volunteers from Danzig. SS-Heimwehr Danzig was formally raised on 18 August 1939, and consisted of 1,550 men. The Volksdeutsche (ethnic Germans) in Danzig founded the 1,550-man strong Heimwehr Danzig (Danzig Militia). On 1 September 1939, German troops attacked Poland. The Heimwehr Danzig took part under German Army command and in the process captured the Polish post office that had been taken over by numerous Communist party members and partisans who with heavy armament decided to use this building as a last redoubt. The soldiers of the Heimwehr Danzig had vivid recollection of the horrible recent massacre of the German citizens at the Polish village of Bromberg and elsewhere. The massacre event was remembered as “Bloody Sunday” by the Danzigers and they were not about to negotiate with these bastards. After fifteen hours of intensive combat ensued the SS won the day! During the attacks, the German forces used 75-mm, and 105-mm artillery and flamethrowers against the defenders The SS-Heimwehr Danzig participated also in the attack of the Danzig Westerplatte and already was considered a part of the 3rd SS-Totenkopf Division then forming under Theodor Eicke. Later, it provided coast-guard services in Danzig. It fought in interior Danzig during the invasion of Poland and was formed II. and part of III./SS-Totenkopf-Infanterie-Regiment 3 of the SS-Totenkopf-Division. Regardless of the fact that their official prewar training was not as intensive as the central-based Waffen-SS divisions, they certainly showed their steel and courage in battle and richly deserved their inclusion in SS-Totenkopf. The return of Danzig’s being such an important goal of N.S. Germany, the German public rather romanticized the Heimwehr Danzig and this beautiful set of six pieces. They are in fine coin silver. This set was found in Poland and has the maker’s mark obliterated. WHY?? We don’t know. It could be that the company still exists and there could have been some sort of patent question. We will never know. The case within has a picture of buildings in the old state of Danzig now within Poland. The spoons individually measure about five inches long. They have the enameled seal of the old state of Danzig (two crosses and a crown). Underneath this is the swastika. On the back of each spoon is engraved “SS-Heimwehr Danzig.” They are certainly beautiful and rare. The next time you enjoy a lovely cup of tea you can stir it while remembering the turbulent times of old and being hopeful that when sanity prevails, Danzig, not Gdansk, will be returned to awakened Reich.

PRICE: $350.00

Spoons by David Cornell Struck in 22-carat Gold on Solid Sterling Silver Depicting Twelve Roman Deities; Includes Case/b> (Item COLLECTORSPOONS 1-2)

DESCRIPTION: This was a limited series of collector spoons depicting the Roman gods and goddesses by sculptor David Cornell and produced by John Pinches Ltd. of England in 1971. Beautifully executed and most detailed all sitting in a beautiful blue leatherette presentation case, which measures 16˝ inches by 5˝ inches. The individual spoons are each almost 5 inches long. Please excuse the photography glitches. The consigner told us that he needed a bright, sunshiny day to do his thing with pictures and it seems it was really too sunshiny and thus he got photo shadows, but I think in any event he got the idea across! This great grouping sat undisturbed in this man’s house since 1971 (About 50 years). It is in about mint condition.

PRICE: $350.00
