Large Original-Period Portrait of Hermann Göring (Item GOR 9-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a massive original photo of Hermann Wilhelm Göring pictured in the uniform of Reichsmarschal, the highest military rank ever used in Germany; the equivalent of a 6-star general, and this “human dynamo” deserved it as creator of the modern Luftwaffe, Head of the German Forests and Hunting, Prussian Minister of the Interior, founder of the SA, originator of the Prussian Police, and the ablest administrator that Adolf Hitler employed. “Unser Hermann” was the name given him by the German people who adored him. When the movie “Battle of Britain” was in need of someone to play Göring as sort of a buffoon, no German actor was willing to play the part. He truly was the renaissance giant; the modern Falstaff. Lavish in his attire and recreations, but also lavish in his love and service to his German people. The picture is large and it is original from the period. Göring is shown with side profile wearing the German Grand Cross (only he had it) his Pour le Mérite (Blue Max), and Knight’s Cross. The Reichsmarschal collar tabs with cross marshal batons decorate his uniform. The frame measures 32 x 76 inched. The actual photo is 23 x 18 inches. The picture was framed by the former owner with acid-free matting. Museum safety glass was added. There are some blotches on the right side, but it really does not detract from this great portrait. If you share our admiration for this adventurer extraordinaire you will have to have this dramatic photographic rendering.

PRICE: $475.00; with professional framing that cost the consigner $200

Magnificent Hunting Trophy Presented to Heinrich Himmler by Hermann Göring (Item GOR 9-3; HH 4-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is undoubtedly the greatest Hermann Göring or Heinrich Himmler item ever turned up with the exception of the famous Göring KPM trunk that was sold by Germania 15 years ago. The item is also a Heinrich Himmler artifact, because the future Reichsmarschal gave it to him in remembrance of a certain hunt in which they both participated in June of 1935. This is all the more interesting because both men actually hated one another in the latter years of the Third Reich. In 1934, Göring turned over to Himmler the responsibility for running the concentration camps, police, and Gestapo. At that point and through 1935 the two were at least to some degree copasetic and cooperative one to another, but by the time 1936 and 1937 rolled around there was definitely no love lost between them. There was friction between them over the Jewish issue. Göring’s godfather (his favorite early friend) was Jewish. His second-in-command, Erhard Milch, and several of his wife's closest friends were Jewish. Göring liked Jewish composers (Mendelson, particularly) and certain painters (Rubens, for example), but he also believed that the Jews by profiteering and scheming behind the scenes had helped to bring about Germany's defeat in World War I. In private, however, he agreed with his wife, Emey, that the Jews were like other people, but a bit smarter, he would add grinning, and that they had their good and bad like every other race. “I'll decide who is and who is not a Jew,” he once said to a subordinate, who had made a reference to some visitors to Carinhalle. All of this did nothing to endear him to Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler or Reinhard Heydrich, or any of the hierarchy of the SS. However, in 1935, things were different between Göring and Himmler. It was a least a “mutual-admiration society,” and because Himmler was an interested hunter—occasionally indulging in the sport now and then—he made him a “Jagdfreund,” or hunting friend and obviously in June 1935 both the Reichsminister and the Reichsführer were at least on one occasion hunting chums. The huge steer horn is about 32 inches long setting on a base that is about 6 inches in diameter and the top cap or lid is about 6 inches in diameter, as well. At the finial is a typical German hunter in his full Jägertracht or hunting outfit, with rifle. The horn is seized by an elaborate, silvered decorative device that holds it in place. There is a clever pin device that locks the portion of the horn’s decorative band to the column-like plinth extension; all of this is in floral and special classic design. All parts are brass with heavy silver plating—typical “Göringesque.” The entire piece is in tight tolerances and is quite sturdy. In the center of the middle band is a plaque that is beautifully inscribed with the legend of presentation: “Ehrengabe für meinen Jadgfreund Reichsführer SS H. Himmler zu unserem erfolgreichen Jagdausflug in Juni 1935.” Under this is a facsimile signature of Hermann Göring. The little hunter at the top is really depicted nicely. He wears a typical hunting jacket and hat and on his vest you can see various marksmanship and hunting metals. He is giving the “horrido” salute that is the traditional indication that the hunt was now to begin. This is proclaimed and accompanied with a tip of the hunter's hat. The horn and its mounting are beautifully presented as would be expected of a state-of-the-art gift to an important Reich's official. This is no trinket. This is the best! In 1945, Himmler’s Tegernsee house was deserted and the Himmler family and the Reichsführer himself were not in attendance ever since Adolf Hitler had expelled him from the party and all his offices. He was actually taking refuge in Flensburg with his two children. At this point, it was clear that soon the Allied armies would be coming and the treasures that the house contained would soon be war booty, but on the other hand, the Führer had promised that new wonder weapons would turn the tide of battle and Germany would possibly still triumph or at least be allowed a peaceable surrender. But in the case of the former distasteful possibility the neighbors in the area decided that they should remove every valuable or useful item from a home in Gmund. They were convinced that the rift between the Führer and the “Reichsheini” would abate and the allies would be shoved back or even more sensibly the Western Allies would now join with the Wehrmacht and team up to go against the Russians. But taking no chances they descended upon the villa and stripped it clean. In talking to some of these folks our buyer was assured by all of them that everything would be returned to the Himmler family once a respectable surrender and equitable peace terms are reached. No one knew or even suspected that this would be nothing like “respectable.” They didn't dream that a sovereign nation and its leaders and its people would be treated in such a horrible, inhumane manner (former enemy or not). So the articles that were taken for safekeeping were kept for many years in safe repositories until they determined that since no claim was ever made about the house and all those years that it might be prudent to dispose of these important relics. As to selling them they were generally in question as to whom, and for what price should be asked. The picker whom we have mentioned was the answer to this. He was cognizant of the laws and statutes especially in connection with Third Reich properties and laws dealing with statutes of limitation and thus he was able to allay the fears of the people wishing to sell these things freely. So that brings us to the trophy. This marvelous object d’art is one of the items that was purchased in this way only a short time ago and now is offered by one of our consigners to the collecting world. It is possibly one of the most strikingly beautiful pieces that we have had the pleasure of offering in recent years, and its importance to history is of course paramount. Where for this price could one even avail themselves or their museum such an important treasure with connection in two of contemporary history's most famous wartime leaders? This magnificent piece is only one of the articles turned up in the Bavarian communities surrounding the charming Tegernsee area to the south of Munich. The most notable of all the great things of Himmler connection of course are the great chair, one of which is shown in our Himmler section. Through intensive research and personal contacts our German pickers had gained access to quite a few of Himmler’a personal items. The Himmler house stands today on the shores of Tegernsee, a beautiful Bavarian villa virtually unchanged. Although Göring and Himmler were at odds for many years I still think the trophy would have had a “special place” in the Tegernsee home and will be specially placed in your home and collection as well.

Currently available. PRICE: $16,000.00; Extremly reasonable for this historic treasure

Butter Knife and Dinner Fork from Special NS Railroad Dining Car (Item GOR 9-7; GEN 12-11; AH 21-17)

DESCRIPTION: This is really a beautiful group of two railroad (Deutsches Reichsbahn) pieces of flatware. The veteran these came from said he personally looted them from the private dining car of Hermann Göring. The German National Rail System had a complete train called the Führerzug. That was the Führer Adolf Hitler’s personal train—Göring had two cars that were personally his. Instead of Hitler’s personalized formal-pattern flatware or Göring’s familiar armored arm with ring flatware the railcars for these two famous personalities had the national eagle and swastika with “DR” flanking it. This was used by both the Führer and Göring and their entourage and guests. So these two items could have been from time to time used by the Führer or the Reichsmarschal; however, the vet says that they were removed from Göring’s car. It’s not clear if they were removed from Göring’s cars or from one of Göring’s personal trains (Sonderzug). He had two of these personal trains; one was named “Der Robinson.” These pieces are considered much more rare than the formal or informal Göring or Hitler pieces that are more often seen. The fork is 8 1/4 inches long and is marked on the back with the crown, half moon, the eagle, and the ‘800’ for silver content. The butter knife measures 8 1/4 inches long also and is marked in the same way. Both pieces also are numbered ‘244’ (set placement codes for what service they are included in.) The eagle, swastika, and ‘DR’ appear at the end of each grip (raised). They are in immaculate condition.

PRICE:    SOLD

A Twice Life Size Bust of Hermann Göring by J. Rogge (Item GOR 9-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is a grand bust of Hermann Wilhelm Göring, Reichsmarshal of Germany’s Third Reich and creator of the Reichs Luftwaffe.  A man of many offices and called a “Human Dynamo” but he was adored by the German people who lovingly called him “Unser Hermann” (Our Hermann).  He was ever the outgoing personality but fiercely loyal to Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP (The Party).  Hermann Göring was at all times kind and gentle to animals and was the master of the hunt or Reichsjagermeister, an office created by Hitler and conferred upon the Führer's obvious successor; he also was the champion of the German common folk, but he could also be practically the Wrath of God against the enemies of the German Reich.  Much has been written of him and most of it quite naturally negative by the controlled historians and the stupid liberals in the military relics field who have made a fortune selling Third Reich articles while all the time showing their revulsion for the history of the Reich offered in today’s revisionist research. But someday the truths will emerge and interested historians of the future will come to realize that constant repetition does not create truth; rather it sometimes begets closer examination by researchers with more objective goals in studying real German history and this amazing Renaissance man of our times.  We have written much in other articles about H. Göring that can be seen throughout our site regarding articles that we offer that were formally his property and the way we perceive it is as long as collectors and historians will gather and appreciate these wonderful material items “Unser Hermann” will be with us.  He was so brilliant a personality that he would appreciate the fact that his memory will as the song says “Bleib du im ewgen Leben! Unser Guter Kamerad”!

The Bust: The sculpture is almost twice life size and is an excellent likeness of the Reichsmarshal.  It is without marble base. The veteran who sent it home removed it to lighten the load while he was still in Germany.  He said it was found in an abandoned Luftwaffe air base near Frankfurt.  It was in what was formally a lecture hall for air force enlisted personal and officers. The bust is in very good condition and was sculpted by Johannes Friedrich Rogge and his signature can be seen on the back of the neck.  Born into a family of artists in Berlin on April 5, 1898, his father Adelbert Rogge (1861-1920) was a painter. He first studied literature and philosophy at the University of Jena, where he wrote his doctoral thesis in 1921.  In 1922 he turns to painting, and then decides to devote himself to sculpture.  He worked in the studio of Berlin sculptor Paul Turge till 1930. Best known for his rather progressive, but historically inspired portraits, also for bust and portraits of Clara Zetkin, Maxim Gorki, Ernst Whilmann, Wilhelm Pieck, Tomas Munzer, Heinrich Heine, Martin Thalmann, Nexo, Georg Agricola, etc. He also produced monuments after the war in honor of Lenin (Konigsee, Thuringia) and Alexander Pushkin (Weimar). Nevertheless, during the Third Reich he sculpted a magnificent bust of Hitler, and this one of Reichsmarshal Göring. Here is the chance to acquire an original bronze sculpture of Germany's “man of steel” by a major listed sculptor the opportunity may never occur again.
