The Treasure Trove


Presented here is the best part of a collection of the finest objects once owned by the Reichsmarschal Hermann Wilhelm Göring and kept at his estates and hunting lodges at Carinhalle and Romintin in the old state of Prussia.

These particular items were display-case objects treasured by this "collector's collector," who is often referred to as the 20th-Century Falstaff because of his love of the very finest of European art and historically important pieces. This collection was recently purchased in Halle, a city in the former DDR, and it involved much intrigue and dangerous liaisons; however, it was successful and we now proudly present these magnificent objects d'art to historians and the collecting public for the first time.

Most of the articles date from much earlier times because Göring was an astute historian at all times in his collecting motivations. He especially liked art with religious motif as well as artistic articles with important historic themes and especially articles with connections to legends and sagas of western folklore. He loved jewels and ivory carving and his insatiable passion for accumulating such articles knew no bounds. The articles that we demonstrate here are some of the most precious of all the vast art assemblage gathered by this man, who, for a time, was the second most powerful individual in European political circles and geopolitical might. The acquisition of these fantastic articles would be possibly the epitome of any fine collection. Eventually, barring unforeseen calamity, these articles will find their way to a special museum display somewhere in the world, but, for now, we want you to be the custodian in whose capable hands the stewardship of these utterly wonderful items will safely repose.

The pictures we have enclosed are of course of the articles themselves, but we have also included pictures of Carinhall, where most of these items were on display. Note: In one of the pictures the display cabinets where all the precious small articles were kept are to be seen to the side of the massive dining facilities. These items that we offer are undoubtedly from here. We also show a picture of the floor plan of Romintin, Göring's favorite hunting lodge, where some of the articles were kept. Also notice the picture of the Reichsjagermeister and his hunting party at Romintin in 1938 along with a picture of the first Hunter of the Reich with his favorite hunting rifle, a 9/3-by 72-R Krupp Merkel-produced weapon that we also handled the sale for.

FINE MEDIEVAL COMB IN BONE (Item GOR 2-8)

DESCRIPTION: The subject finally carved in bone depicts two hunting scenes from ancient times. The piece very probably was never used as an actual comb, but as an art object to be admired and appreciated by onlookers who would visit the castle or stately home of the owner, who would be a rich and influential personage. Bone was considered a very precious commodity in those times and prized very highly by the rich and famous. This is very similar to one of those that reposes in the city of Nuremberg's Volksmuseum, today. Hermann Göring had several of these at his home collection at Carinhalle.

Japanese Bone Horse from Carinhalle (Item GOR 2-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great bone horse that came from Hermann Göring’s treasure collection at his Schorfheide Forest estate Carinhalle, named after his Swedish first wife Carin. Göring was a connoisseur of the arts both European and oriental. He loved animals, of course, and this realistic master carving would have been definitely one of his favored items indeed. Completely carved out of one piece of bone this is truly a masterpiece of oriental caving. The date of carving and the artist are unknown, but the style and the apparent aged look would probably place it in the early 1800s. The depiction is of a horse of the royal household. It if turns out to be of Japanese origin this could be representative of the royal steed of Hirohito, the Japanese emperor. The trappings look like the style of the warlord, himself. This would be typical that such a gift would be presented to the German Reichsmarschal as he entertained many of the Japanese ambassadors and attaches at Carinhalle in the 1930s and 1940s and many gifts were bestowed upon him by these guests. The carved animal is about 7 inches long and about 7 inches high from the bottom of the hooves to the top of the ears. The pictures show what magnificent carving was accomplished. The horse is also heavy; a real hunk of genuine bone having belonged to a great connoisseur of the arts and the second most powerful man in Europe at the time. It has been said he was the second Falstaff. We do know he knew how to live and at the Nuremberg Star Chamber proceedings he demonstrated that he would also die in the way of his own choosing cheating all the murderous enemy captors. He will always be known to patriotic German people as “Unser Hermann,” “Our Hermann.”
