Wonderful Porcelain Plaque Depicting Hermann Göring in Uniform (Item GOR 10-2; ART 15-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a plaque manufactured by Rosenthal, a magic name in the finest porcelain in the world, then and now. “Göring” is manufactured by a Rosenthal process where a photo is first used then transferred to a porcelain blank, then the artistic paints all the finer details. All the handwork is obvious when the plague is closely examined. Because the handwork is so finely applied these plaques were very limited and few ever show up. They were a very expensive item in their day and were given as gifts to special people, usually a very special occasions. The measurement is 7 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches. Göring is shown in the uniform of general field marshal, dating it pre-1940. The words “GENERALFELDMARSCHALL Hermann Goering” appear on the back along with Rosenthal's seal in gold. This is a treasure indeed, in perfect condition. Although unsigned the original portrait was by the famed German artist Willie Exner, who did the most famous painting of the Führer that also was the subject of a Rosenthal plaque. See also the plaques of Frederick the great at Item FRED 1-1. These Rosenthal plaques are very rare and command major money at auctions when found today. We offer this great plaque at a very competitive price. It is a really sound investment in this day and age.

The Gold Cufflinks of Hermann Goring (Item GOR 10-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful set of gold cufflinks formally the property of Reichsmarshal Hermann Goring, second-most  powerful man next to Adolf Hitler in the Third German Reich. The links were designed by Herr Professor Herbert Zeitner who was Goring’s personal jeweler. Zeitner was born in Coburg Germany in 1900.  During 1914-1921 he underwent training at the College of Art in Hannau, Germany. In 1924 he taught at the academy of fine and applied art in Berlin. In 1935, Zeitner was appointed as professor for the art of goldsmithing. In 1939, he was the director of the master workshop for goldsmiths at the Prussian Academy of Arts in Berlin. In 1946, he moved to Luneburg and opened a studio there. Herbert Zeitner died in Luneburg in 1988. Herbert Zeitner was awarded the “Ring of Honor of the German Association of Goldsmiths.”  His work is exhibited in various European museums and published in numerous books about the jeweler’s art. He was a Master Jeweler and this is precisely why he was chosen to design many art pieces for Hermann Goring. This included rings, pendants, daggers, presentation boxes, paperweights ,etc.  The Goring crest, as seen on the cufflinks, was completely designed by Professor Zeitner with Heraldic advice from the Reichsmarshal himself. His crest turns up on rings and pendants that once belonged to this “Modern day Falstaff” as Goring was often called. The crest is quite beautiful and contains the winged arm whose armored hand clutches a golden ring and below this a Knight’s tournament helmet that sits upon a shield that also contains the armored arm with the ring holding this shield. To each side of the shield are a stag on one side and a lion on the other. At the bottom, suspended from a ribbon, is the Pour le Merite (Blue Max) that Goring won in WWI as an ace fighter pilot -- 22 confirmed kills. Around the edges are the words Reichsmarshal “H. Goring Minister President.” While on the back there are 3 deeply set stampings; the main one is the (Z) for Zeitner with his logo including the slashes on the tail of the (Z). The next mark is something that looks like a scorpion or a crab -- this could be the mark of the sub-contractor who actually manufactured the cufflinks.  The last mark is a (585) which is the German marking to indicate that the item is equivalent to 14 karat gold. The links have a fine hinged fastener that goes through the cuffs to secure the jewelry to the dress shirt cuffs. These cufflinks were among the items that we bought in Stuttgart years ago. You can read about that marvelous purchase on our home page and the title of the narrative is “About our rings and silver insignia.”  Zeitner was mainly a designer and actually seldom produced the actual products himself although he was usually the seller when it came to that point. He dealt directly with prospective clients and personally with companies such as Sy and Wagner, Wagner, Assmann, etc. Much of his designs were sold to various companies and jewelers. As we have said, Zeitner did not do much in gold but there were enough gold items in the grouping to indicate that he did not refrain from doing gold items if it necessitated doing so and in the case of Zeitner and Hermann Goring it was no doubt necessary. So, here we have the actual personal cufflinks of Hermann Goring. All we know for sure is that they were Goring’s property either worn by him or were to be at some point in time to be worn by him. There were also about three rings that had the same design and a couple of great pendants no doubt made as gifts to Emmy Goring. The cufflinks measure about 1 inch long and ¾ inches wide. They are elegant, and designed in great taste by Master Jeweler Zeitner and an absolutely prestigiously important historical relic from the man who the German people called “Unser Hermann.”

A Formal Compote (Center Piece) from the Air Ministry in Berlin (Item GOR 10-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is without doubt a great Hermann Göring relic. This is a magnificent compotier (compote) that was from the private office of the Reichsmarshal within the Luftwaffe Air Ministry in Berlin on the Wilhelmstrasse. This building was a classic example of Third Reich architecture. The mosaics and statuary plus paintings inside were breathtakingly beautiful. They say Göring's inner office was utterly fantastic and being familiar with his artistic taste we would have to concur although I know of no book that has pictures of this magnificent office. It has been said that the decorative motif was similar to his hunting cabin in East Prussia only more refined. The Russian looter, who took this compote in 1945 in the fall of Berlin, spoke no German and when our picker from Nuremberg bought it from him, he could not shed any light on the scenario. The piece was bought at a Berlin flea market just after the Berlin wall came down. The Air Ministry was formed in April 1933 from the Reich Commissariat for aviation, which had been established two months earlier with Hermann Göring at its head. In this early phase, the Ministry was composed mainly of Göring’s personal Luftwaffe staff; it was later comprised of many departments dealing with several facets of air travel, construction, training and staffing and all of the central command of the Luftwaffe. In 1934 an additional department was added, the Luftzeugmeister (LZM) in charge of logistics. With the rapid growth of the Luftwaffe following the outbreaks of WWII in 1939, the Ministry grew so large that Göring was no longer able to maintain control of this period and was marked by an increasing inability to deliver the new aircraft designs that were desperately needed, as well as continued shortages of aircraft and engines. In 1943, Albert Speer took over from Erhard Milch who was the state secretary for aviation and things immediately improved; Speer was able to cut through the rigid hierarchy and make needed changes almost overnight, aircraft production shot up, and projects that had been hampered for political reasons, like the Heinkel HE 219 UHV, were finally able to proceed. So much for a capsule review of the history of the building and its functions.  The compote was definantly from a luncheon or tea time table within Görings office and like everything else that belonged to him, it is again Classic. The Reichsmarshal in his architectural predilection tried to make everything reflective of himself.  His jewelry even brought forward this theme. His favorite jobs within the Reich government were his supreme command of the Air Force and his office of “Reichsjagermeister,” Chief of German hunting. The decoration of this compotier brings out in its design a suggestive mode with the three eagles in bronze from stylized letters that look like a (D) signifying flight emerging as the future of Deutschland. At the base of each eagle is the badge of the Reichsjagerbund, the National hunting Association, that Göring founded.  This was the stag head (St. Hubertus style) with the swastika of the new Reich. In the center of the dish portion is the full Göring crest. This was handmade and adhered by a master craftsman. The crest includes the armored arm that clutches the ring. The helmet of a knight with winged crest that employs again the armored extremity holding once more the ring, a stag and a griffon are the supporters of the crest. The whole of the dish is in bronze with the eagles underneath acting as a magnificent plinth. It is supposed that a porcelain plate possibly was fitted from time to time when refreshments would be served when special guests such as Lord Halifax, Italo Balbo, Charles Lindberg or the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were in attendance. Such scenarios were regularly held not in the grand ballroom but actually in the comfort of the office. Göring was a very personable man who loved company, so this grand item I would say possibly was used very often. We were lucky that the Russian preserved it so it could be brought back to us who appreciate it so profoundly. This truly is one of the finest Göring items to surface in many years.

Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) Table Fork from Hermann Goring’s Private Train (Item GOR 10-10)

DESCRIPTION: The author James A.Yannes points out in his recently published book, The Collectable Spoons of the Third Reich, that Hermann Goring (Reichsmarsal) had two personal trains. His primary private dining car was #10243 (243) for short. Other cars were 233, 234 and 244 and are usually marked with a capital (B) for Bruckmann with a locomotive symbol followed by the numerals (90). Tthe demonstrably different shape of the Goring flatware is evident when set side by side with the A.H. DR. spoon in our Hitler pages (AH 25-8).  And is generally described with raised edge.  The number assigned and seen on this fork is 225 and it is a good assumption that this is the number of the car used by the huge Goring staff who always accompanied him including Field Marshals and Generals of the Luftwaffe. The fork is 7" long and is in great condition.

A Set of Four Forks from Hermann Goring’s Palatial Estate at Karinhalle (Item GOR 10-11)

DESCRIPTION: These four dinner forks are from Hermann Goring’s palatial estate “Karenhalle” in the Prussian Schorfheide Forest. They are not the formal silverware used at the “Grand Table.” Rather, they are from the normal dining service used in the mess hall for the guards, the hunting assistants and workers. They are still rather fine looking in keeping with the trappings of the Master of the House. They are heavily silver plated and are large; about 8 ¼ inches long. They all have the Goring crest that features the armored forearm holding a ring. They are unmarked as to company of manufacture. They are certainly historically important. Sold as a set of four only.  

PRICE: $1.350.00 for all four.

A Glorious Goblet from Hermann Goring to Dr. Madison Grant (U.S.A.) (Item GOR 10-12 & HUNT 7-20)

DESCRIPTION: This has to be one of the most incredible historically important relics that Germania International, LLC has ever offered. It is an “Ehrenpokal” or Honor Goblet that was made to be presented to Dr.Madison Grant who was one of the most important authors of the 20th century on the American literary scene. Madison Grant, born November 19, 1865 and died May 30, 1937; American lawyer, historian, racialist (not racist -- our opinion) and anthropologist known primarily for his work as a eugenicist and conservationist. As a eugenicist, Grant was responsible for one of the most famous academic works of scientific racial hygiene and played an active role in crafting strong immigration restrictions and anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. As a conservationist, Grant was credited with the saving of many different species of animals, founding many different environmental and philanthropic organizations and developing much of the American wildlife management disciplines that are observed even today. Meanwhile in Germany, Hermann Wilhelm Goring, who later became a close friend and colleague of Madison Grant, carried on almost identical tasks and projects. Grant born in New York City was a lifelong resident of that metropolis. He traveled Europe and the Middle East with his father. He attended Yale University graduating with honors in 1887.  He received a law degree from Columbia Law School and practiced law after graduation; however, his interests were primarily those of a naturalist. He dabbled in politics to an extent, but only when political matters had a direct bearing on his own special interests. Grant is most famous for being the author of the extremely popular book "The Passing of the Great Race” in 1916. A very concise work of racial hygiene detailing the “racial history” of Europe. "The Passing of the Great Race" was a racially astute interpretation of contemporary anthropology and history, stating quite correctly (at least in our opinion) the theory that race was the basic motor of civilization. Grant promoted the idea of the “Nordic Race” as the key social group responsible for civilized human development. Thus the subtitle of the book was “The Racial Basis ofEuropean History." As an avid eugenicist he further advocated the separation, quarantine and eventual collapse of undesirable traits and worthless race types from the human gene pool and the promotion, spread and eventual restoration of desirable traits and worthwhile race types conducive to Nordic (White) Society. At this point we quote him on selection…"A Rigid system of selection through the elimination of those who are weak or unfit – in other words, social failures. This would solve the whole question in one hundred years, as well as enable us to get rid of undesirables who crowd our jails, hospitals and insane asylums. The individual himself can be nourished, educated and protected by the community during his lifetime, but the state though sterilization must see to it that his line stops with him, or else future generations will be cursed with an ever increasing burden of misguided sentimentalism  This is a practical, merciful and inevitable solution of the whole problem and can be applied to an ever widening circle of social discards, beginning always with the criminal, the diseased and the insane, and extending gradually to types which may be called weaklings rather than defectives, and perhaps ultimately to worthless race types."

In the book Grant recommends segregating "unfavorable races in ghettoes" by installing civil organizations through the public health system to establish quasi-dictatorships in their particular fields. In Grant's view, Nordics probably evolved in a climate which must have been such as to impose a rigid elimination of defectives though the agency of hard winters and the necessity of industry and foresight in providing the year’s food, clothing and shelter during the short summer. Such demands on energy, if long continued, would produce a strong virile and self contained race which would inevitably overwhelm in battle nations whose weaker elements had not been forged by the conditions of an equally severe environment. The Nordic was Homo Europaeus, “The white man par excellence”, (Germania’s opinion) characterized by certain unique specifications, namely wavy brown or blonde hair, and blue, grey or light brown eyes, fair skin, high, narrow and straight nose which are associated with great stature and a long skull as well as abundant head and body hair.  He said that the Nordics all over the world are a race of soldiers, sailors, explorers and adventurers but above all of rulers, organizers and aristocrats; their chivalry and knighthood are peculiarly Nordic traits. They were and are the pinnacle of Western Civilization. They are the people who gave the world the great civilizations of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia and most splendid of all civilizations, that of ancient Hellas and the most enduring political organization, The Roman State. According to Grant, Nordics were in dire straits in the modern world due to their abandonment of cultural values rooted in religious or superstitious proto-racialism. They were (and are still, in our opinion) close to committing race suicide by being miscegenated with and out-bred by more inferior stock who were taking advantage of transition. The book was extremely popular and went through numerous printings in the United States and was translated into a number of other languages, notably German in 1925. By 1937 the book had sold 1,600,000 copies in the U.S. alone. Nordic theory was strongly embraced by the racial hygiene movement in Germany in the early 1920’s and 1930’s. However, they typically used the term Aryan instead of Nordic though the principal National Socialist ideologist Alfred Rosenberg preferred the term Aryo-Nordic. Grant's work was embraced by proponents of the NSDAP in Germany. “Passing of the Great Race" was the first non-German book ordered to be reprinted by the N.S. leaders when they took power and Adolf Hitler wrote to Grant and said, "Your book is my bible.” Grant was attacked by various pseudo intellectuals but stood his ground and his book seemed unassailable in a more enlightened age (again, our opinion)!

As far as his conservation efforts, he became a close friend of several U.S. presidents including Theodore Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover. Teddy, of course, was an avid hunter and conservationist. Besides saving many natural species from extinction, he is also credited with helping develop the first deer hunting laws in New York State .He was the creator of official wildlife management groups and co-founded the “Save the Redwoods League.” He helped found the Bronx Zoo, helped to create Glacier National Park, as well as other national parks. As secretary of the New York Zoological Society, he lobbied to put “Ota Benga,” a Congolese Pygmy from the Belgian Congo on display alongside apes at the Bronx zoo. This was to promote and display the concepts of human evolution and scientific racialism. And of course the Liberals had a flying fit over this as would be expected. Grant's many involvements in numerous eugenic and philanthropic societies are much too numerous for us to number. He was a very, very, busy man! Grant viewed the Nordic race lovingly as he did any of his endangered species. In Germany, Hermann Goring’s programs of conservation were practically identical to Grant's labors in the field, and certainly his view of race was identical to the letter with Goring’s. When a friendship grew and prospered and was reached between the American Grant and the German Goring, it was of course based upon admiration for each other's achievements in conservation and hunting practices but of course eugenics played a large part in their mutual admiration society. Goring was a brilliant conservationist and had the Hitler granted title of Master of the Hunt “Reichsjagermeister” -- he was certainly the ecologist's ecologist! In this office he instituted many regulations and laws dealing with forestry and hunting. He, for instance, forbade hunting with hounds and prohibited the age old practice of exhibiting dancing bears -- a terrible performance that necessitated abject animal cruelty. He was also Master of the German Forests and instituted many laws that were known as the “Reichjagdgesetz.” He told Scherping, his chief forest Master, to set up a uniform nationwide hunting association “Deutsches Jagerschaft” to regulate the sport, restock the lakes, tend the forests, and protect the various dying species of animal life. The association would levy taxes on huntsmen to pay for the upkeep of the forests and game parks. “I want a new hunting law for Prussia,” he had briefed Scherping on May 9, 1933 “one that can later serve for the entire German Reich." With one stroke of the pen he made it a criminal act to kill an eagle or hunt with poisons, artificial light or the steel trap that Goring called "that medieval instrument of torture." His Prussian game law passed on January 18, 1934 and was envied far beyond Germany’s frontiers. When Madison Grant saw this law enacted, he become one of Goring’s most ardent admirers. Like Grant, Goring insisted that the game officials must be animal lovers. Once he took a phone call from a forester asking for permission for local farmers to take their own action against what he called a plague of wild boars. “One more word from you," bellowed Goring after listening with mounting anger, "and I’ll blast a shotgun up your snout.” His proudest achievement was the Schorf Heath on Berlin’s doorstep. It was here on June 10th, 1934 that he had inaugurated his new bison (buffalo) sanctuary with two bulls and seven hybrid cows. He introduced elk as well -- successions of Prussian kings had tried and failed to restore this noble, ungainly beast to the Shorf -Heath. But it took Hermann to successfully accomplish it. Goring consulted zoologists, foresters, biologists all over the world and succeeded, though not without experiencing his own initial disappointments. The whole Shorf Heath experiment was finally crowned with success and by May, 1937, he had reared forty-seven local bison and his first native elks calved in May 1937as well. Goring introduced the rarer fauna into the Heath, like night owl, wood grouse, heathcock, grey goose, raven, beaver and otter.  During 1936, 140,000 townsfolk forked out 20 pfennigs apiece to tour the wildlife sanctuary. It became a forerunner of the great national parks in other countries. He would tell huntsmen assembled for their Saint Hubertus Day Festival “The forest is God's cathedral.

Another Goring humane achievement was that he introduced a tough antivivisection law proceeded by a broadcast warning that he would throw each and every violator into a concentration camp. Dachau? Almost in every experiment mentioned except perhaps the vivisection laws, Goring consulted Madison Grant who he envisioned as the American conservation genius for advice and assistance. These two men were not only close friends but really two peas in a pod so to speak.  Their interests and their accomplishments were practically identical. Love of the forest and animals was always mutually foremost in their minds and they became constant pen-pals. In January, 1937 Madison Grant presided over his forty-third, and what was to be his last, annual meeting of the American Zoological Society of which he was president. It was said by many of his colleagues that it took a lot of courage for Grant to have done that because he seemed to be in pretty bad shape. Even those in disagreement with him admired him for his measureless stamina and uncomplaining courage. He was still fighting for the causes he thought important until the day he died. Grant's final undertaking was helping to organize the International Hunting Exposition of 1937 in Berlin, sponsored and engineered by Master of the Hunt Hermann Goring. As Commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag Prime Minister of Prussia and Adolf Hitler’s designated successor, the aristocratic Goring was possibly the world’s busiest man but as we have said he was also a committed conservationist and a compulsive hunter who never let his duties of state interfere with his sporting activities. In 1937, in his capacity as Reichsjagermeister, Goring planned the massive International Hunting Exposition in Germany's capital city, a three week long festival to promote comradeship, goodwill and understanding among the international hunting fraternity. The exhibition took place on the vast grounds of the newly built Berlin Exposition Center and featured shooting competitions, falconry, demonstrations, displays of hunting trophies, exhibits of archaic weapons and seminars on game preserves plus of course natural conservation. The highlight was when selected delegates joined in a hunting party with Marshal Goring himself. Madison Grant of course was invited as the number one featured personality and he intended to take with him to Berlin some of his record trophies but the greatest of all American conversationalists, unfortunately, did not live long enough to attend the grand hunt with his loyal friend Hermann Goring. Still, it is most fitting that Grant's final project had combined hunting and the Third Reich for those were the two poles of his brilliant intellectual development. He began as a big game hunter in the 1890’s and evolved during the course of his life into a scientific racialist and conservationist, and preservationist, with immense knowledge of wildlife management expertise and finally we know he embraced National Socialism in almost enthusiastic fervor. He felt its tenants were the path to the Aryan-Nordic Imperium that he envisioned.

The great man passed away in his Park Avenue residence on Sunday, May 30th, 1937, at the age of 89 and after such a praiseworthy and sometimes complex life. The N.S. journal Volk and Rasse in Germany mourned the passing of this courageous researcher and their words of condolence mentioned him as a teacher and leader who stood up to International Jewry. Another famous individual said in part of an eloquent eulogy, “No more will his stalwart figure be seen among us, around our council fires, we shall sadly miss his deep voice, his ready will, his wise decisions and the inspiration to spur us on to high endeavor. Yet, believing with the poet that they who dwell in our hearts never died, we shall like the Norsemen of old carry him with us to the Halls of Valhalla!”   Much of the above is extrapolated from the brilliant work titled Defending the Master Race by Jonathan Peter Spiro and the quotes used can be considered to be written by a reviewer who has quoted brief passages in admiring review. Most of the passages are original material by Germania International, LLC’s house historians and researchers

The Goblet - The Ehrenpokal from Hermann Goring

We now offer this incredible goblet that was to be presented to Madison Grant from the Reichjagermeister Hermann Goring. We emphasize was to be because it actually never was presented due to the unfortunate, untimely death of this great patrician, Grant would have joined Goring for the opening of the International Exhibition of Hunting on the second of November 1937. There was nothing in the world that he would have enjoyed more than this. He would have been the featured lecturer and the most honored guest of all. The strikingly beautiful pokal or goblet was prepared at the direction of Hermann Goring to honor his most revered mentor and fellow hunting enthusiast. And it would have been presented to him on the opening day of the Exhibition. The pokal is huge, standing 1 full foot high (12 inches). The mouth opening is 5 ½ inches in diameter. The pedestal is 5 ½ inches in diameter. The bowl is decorated in heavy overlapping oak leaves supported by banded ribbon -- this is in high relief done similar to the oak leaves on the Luftwaffe Ehrenpokal that was also designed by Goring, The stem is stamped out with an incredible 18th century hunt scent with hunters and horse, plus hunting hounds, that dash through the forest with trees and brush. All of this in extremely high relief. The pedestal is also artistically accomplished with a band of ribbon tied oak leaves, while above this is the dedication inscription to Madison Grant...“Dem Ehrenhaften und angesehenen Madison Grant in Dankbarkeit und anerkennung fur Seine Wertvolle hilfe Bei den Vorbereitungen zur Grossen Jadgausstellung in Berlin 1937. Horrido und Hallali. Hermann Goring Reichsjagermeister." Translation: The honorable and respected Madison Grant in gratitude and acknowledgment for your valuable assistance during the preparation for the great hunting exhibition in Berlin 1937. Horrido und Hallali.         Hermann Goring, Reichs Hunting Master." Horrido is the Jagers call at the start of the hunt. Hallai is the call when the hunter is successful and has bagged his game. In World War II, the German fighter plane squadrons were called Jagdstaffel (Hunters squadrons) and when they spotted their target they would call Horrido!  And when they shot down the enemy plane they would exclaim Hallali!

At the very top rim of the goblet you can see these famed hunting calls of the sport. Between these words of Horrido and Hallali is the symbol of the National Socialist hunting association that Goring founded. This is individually jeweler crafted and is not one of the membership pins that has been adhered. This was certainly a great find and how could any hunting trophy be more important than this one? Madison Grant obviously never received the pokal unfortunately and it seems that Herr Goring kept it after hearing that Grant had died. Madison Grant had no relatives such as wife; he never married and of course had no children. I suppose that Marshal Goring could have presented it to the N.Y. Zoological Society but it would appear that he decided to keep it as a personal memorial to his friend. The goblet was taken from Goring’s Castle Veldenstein by neighbors that didn’t want it to fall in the thieving hands of GI Joe or Ivan! Hundreds of such treasures were taken into protective custody by townsfolk back then, and are just now being brought forward. Our German picker has made contact with many of these families and has been fortunate in procuring some great Goring items that otherwise would have possibly been destroyed or might be sitting in Moscow. (Better in your collection!) Veldenstein Castle was where Goring sent many of his treasures in 1945 hoping that after a just peace would be reached with the allies, he would go there and reclaim his precious items. This however was a dream that evaporated in the aftermath of the war and the Star Chamber court proceedings of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial. So, today this pokal stands in mute testimony to both the notable men and sportsmen and regardless of what is said to demonize their memory there are some Americans and Germans who will remember the positive accomplishments of “Unser Hermann” and that great American author and sportsman Madison Grant. This is without a doubt is the most historically important relic ever offered by Germania or any other web site and that is our considered opinion!

Cameo Ring Given to Hermann Goring by His First Wife Carin (Item GOR 10-15)

DESCRIPTION: We have offered bigger things, we have offered things actually more beautiful, but we have never offered anything more important, more touching than this wonderful finger ring that was presented in love to Hermann Goring from his first true love, Carin. Carin was born Carin Fock in Stockholm in 1888, the daughter of a Swedish Baron and his Anglo-Irish wife. Her father the Baron was also a Swedish army colonel. Carin became Carin Von Kantzow upon her marriage in 1910 to army officer Baron Niels Von Kantzow. They had one child Thomas Von Kantzow born in 1922. In 1920, she met Hermann Goring, five years her junior who was then working as a commercial pilot in Sweden for Svenska Lufttrafik and they carried on what could be said to be an adulterous relationship although Carin and her husband due to the absence of domestic tranquility had been estranged for years, both living separately.  She was divorced in December, 1922 and married Hermann shortly thereafter. After their marriage on 3 January 1923, the Gorings first lived in a house in the suburbs of Munich, but they had to flee to Sweden after the failed Munich Putsch of November 1923. Carin followed her husband into the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) and by all accounts was even a more enthusiastic party member than her husband. She was immediately taken into the inner circle of the NS Kameradschaft.  She was celebrated in her own home and in regular party leadership sessions in the Bratwurstglockel Bierstube in the heart of old Munich.  Now that the NSDAP had stated to achieve political power, Goring returned to Germany on a permanent basis however his beloved wife was little able to join in physical support of his new and important offices within the Party due to her serious ill health. She suffered from tuberculosis during her later years.  Her mother Huldine Fock died completely unexpectedly on 25 September, 1931. Carin was tremendously shocked, and she died of heart failure on 17 Oct., 1931 four days prior to her 43rd birthday. The love affair between Hermann and Carin was such that romantic novels are penned about. She adored Hermann the heroic flying ace of WWI and he passionately loved his Swedish Walkurie. “Walkurie’ in spirit but unfortunately weak in health. It is recorded that Carin thought of him as a Leonidas at the head of the Spartan 300’s at the battle of Thermopylae. The analogy was very good.  Hermann and the NS Party were beset and besieged by Communists, Reactionaries, and in the early days of the ‘Kampzeit’ by the Weimer Government's Police as well.  But like the ancient 300, they stood their ground with Hermann Goring at the forefront of the struggle for Germany. This was the reason that Carin gave this particular ring to her mighty and brave hero. The hand carved cameo depicts none other than King Leonidas who wears the Spartan helmet of his rank. Carin presented it to him on 12.1.1923 in Stockholm. The ring is huge measuring 1 ½ inches from top to bottom of the portrait and a little over an inch wide around the shank of the ring is hand engraving that reads as follows:

Zum Geburstag
Lieber Hermann
Deine Carin 

And on the underside of the cameo it reads 12.1.1923 Stockholm.

Goring was born Jan 12, 1893, and she presented the ring to him on his birthday a couple of days after they were married no doubt so that he could wear it at the various wedding celebrations that followed for weeks thereafter. The inscription translated reads: For your Birthday Dear Hermann from Your Carin. The ring is beautiful in its presentation and certainly massive. It measures in ring size about 11 and made for a big man. It is in 18k gold and is heavy. The carving is very excellently accomplished on a perfect cameo shell.  It is certain that Goring treasured this token from the wife who he also treasured. It is more than probable that receiving this ring contributed greatly to his passionate penchant for acquiring many diversified rings. There are pictures of him wearing many different patterns of rings, many that he designed himself and had them made and assembled by his main jewelers Zeitner and Franz Schnell. But it is doubtful that any one of them ever meant more to him than this ring from Carin. We were told that he did not wear this ring after Carin died fearful of ever cracking the cameo.  He placed it in a shrine to Carin that he had in his residence in Kaiserdamm Berlin in 1931 and later in his estate in the Baronial hunting Lodge which he built in 1933 in Carin's honor. It was there that he had her body re-interred from her original grave in Sweden in a funeral attended by one of her greatest admirers, The German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler.

Carinhall was demolished under Goring’s orders as the barbarous Russian troops advanced in 1945.  In Germany everything was far beyond hectic!  The sheer horrors that the Mongols were committing along the way sent chills in the heart of Europe’s most civilized people. The hopes for both personal survival and the survival of their besieged nation were the first thing that occupied every moment of thought of all the people and especially the leaders such as ‘Unser Hermann’ as the German folk knew him.  He did not want this memorial to the beloved Carin to fall into the claws of the Satanic Reds. Unfortunately, time ran completely out and the remains of Carin in the mausoleum were abandoned by the Luftwaffe troopers who got out without a minute to spare and the barbarian hordes discovered only a pile of debris and rocks where the beautiful estate once stood.  But the mausoleum did fall into their hands. They desecrated her remains in childlike glee with their Commissars directing the game. It is said that they played football with her head. It is also said but not proven, that Hermann Goring was shown a film that was taken by the Reds of this foul act of desecration. Unproven but believable considering the vicious hate unleashed against the German people and their leaders by this Star Chamber Tribunal at Nuremberg. In offering this magnificent example of the finest in cameo jewelry, we also present it as a lasting token and memory of a romance that spans the years and someday will be respected and admired by men and women of the Aryan West. R.I..P Carin and Hermann, you were definitely the kind of lovers from which legends are made!

The ring is offered for $15,000.00. This is certainly a chance of a lifetime of collecting .Very few items of that importance are ever found today.

P.S.  The ring was found in the vicinity of Castle Veldenstein where Hermann Goring had sent all of his treasured articles of art and a personal memento for safe keeping until the surrender was accomplished. He always thought that the Allies would negotiate terms that would be expected by opposing sides in the end of a war. Goring was a military man all the way whose perceptions of war were born in the chivalry that was practiced in the air war of WWI. He could not conceive of the unabashed savagery that was practiced by the Nuremburg Tribunal toward the vanquished leaders of the German Nation.  (Please by all means read the book “Advance to Barbarism” This book is a concise exposure of the injustice and hypocrisy of the Nuremberg trails.  If you don’t order the book on Amazon at least read critique of Fredrick J. Veale’s book by James E. Egolf.  The book not only clears up the criminality of the Tribunal itself but it is a warning about the fact that the author does more than skewer the judicial outrages of the trials of the Germans and their Allies. He shows that these trials by demonizing the defeated and refusing into evidence the crimes of the victors. This abolished the traditional code that had ruled European warfare for centuries. At Nuremberg the international military tribunal established unknowingly a situation and precedence that would make future warfare worse for non-combatants by dividing warring nations into good (us) and evil (them)).

No other books revealed the hypocrisy and hatred espoused by the so-called glorious allies in such a recalling light, every word and passage penned by the author completely refutes the imbecilic position that is taken by the uneducated that this was a “just retribution”.  Let us give you an example of the blatant hypocrisy at Nuremberg. The Germans who invaded Poland were grilled ‘war criminals’ but the Soviet’s who invaded it were not. Even though subsequent investigation proves that the Russians were responsible for the horrible massacre at Katyn and numerous other atrocities -- almost all the charges levied against the Germans were based on such flawed legal reasoning. Read it! Please read it. It is bound to influence your thinking and probably will dispel much of the Orwellian concepts that you might have had up to now.

If you have ever wanted to have an item that is vastly important to history and, yes, so infinitely personal this, my collector friends, is it!
