Grand Tablecloth from the Berghof (Item AH 21-1)

DESCRIPTION: Because of poor lighting, the tablecloth appears to be yellow in color, but is actually gold! This is one of the finest looking tablecloths we have ever seen; its pictures can't quite do it justice. It’s "gorgeous.” It's also large and measures 45 x 58 inches and has wonderful machine-embroidered oak-leaf sprays all around while in the center is a Hakenkreutz, or swastika, in a circle. This is a formal tablecloth used only at the highest luncheons that were usually at separate small tables sorted by importance at the Berghof dining hall, or sometimes the same tablecloths were used at the Reich Chancellery, as well. If you look at the seating arrangements shown on a document at Item AH 17-12, you can see that some pretty important people sat at these roundtables that were set up for luncheons. This is only the second one of these special high-luncheon tablecloths we have seen across the many years and this one is in almost perfect condition throughout except for a tiny dime-sized stain or two. This is one of the ultimate Hitler items. Along one edge are the embroidered words “Ges. Getsch. with a swastika at each end of the words. This means “Gesetzlich Geschützt,” or “Registered (patent/design/trademark).” We consider this to be an absolute treasure; prodigiously important historically and beautiful to boot! The embroidered oak leaves at the border and surrounding the swastika are wonderfully detailed in a rich creamy white and standout dramatically against the gold hue of this table covering. What more can we say? It speaks for itself. You will agree if you get to see it. Again, with this one the pictures just can't do it justice.

PRICE: $1,800.00 -- extremely reasonable for this one

Hitler Head Token Commemorating the 1933 Victory of the NSDAP (Item AH 21-3; NSD 14-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful silver-coin-sized token that is called the Victory token. It is struck in pure silver and has a bust portrait of Adolf Hitler with his name spelled out and the words “Unser die Zukunst,” “Ours, the Future.” On the back is the German eagle breaking away the chains of the Versailles Treaty. Around the edges it says “Im Jahr Deutscher Schicksalswende, 1933,” “In the Year of the Change of Fate for Germany, 1933” and, of course, that was the year of Adolf Hitler’s assumption of complete power. The token is about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and it is in pretty fine condition, but show quite a bit of honest wear probably from being carried in the pocket of a German patriot for many years. It still is a fine and historically important piece of history.

Honorary Citizenship Granted to Adolf Hitler on the Occasion of His Coming to Power (a tapestry) (Item AH 21-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an Ehrenbürger-Urkunde, or honorary citizenship, that was given to Adolf Hitler on April 1, 1933. The reason for presentation on that date was because this was the Judenboycott directed at Jewish businesses and this was the beginning of eliminating Jews from German business life. This was a reaction against the boycott Germany campaigns carried on in the U.S. and Britain. Hitler had been appointed chancellor in January 1933, and the Jewish organizations immediately began their anti-Hitler, anti-NS, anti-German campaigns. This beautiful tapestry commemorated the fact that the city of Oelsnitz in Saxony not only supported the NS boycott, but fervently supported the Führer, Adolf Hitler and now on the occasion of this event they joined hundreds of other towns, villages, and cities bestowing honorary citizenship on this their leader and “Befreier.” The city of Oelsnitz i.V., the ‘i.V.’ stands or ‘im Vogtland.’ This would be the area where Oelsnitz is located is called the ‘Teppich Stadt’ or City of Tapestries or rugs and still today this textile excellence is their specialty. Since the major rug dealers in Germany prior to 1933 and Hitler’s elevation to power were for the most part Jewish it only seems logical that this community would be fervently behind the boycott. The wording on the piece is: “EHRENBÜRGER-URKUNDE von der TEPPICH STADT OELSNITZ i.V.” On the bottommost portion is written “1 April 1933.” Again, this was the day of the declared boycott against Jewish businesses throughout the Reich. There were many carpet and tapestry dealers in Oelsnitz and we do not know which one the town council picked to create this fabric document, but it surely had to be the best! This is something of a masterpiece. The vibrant colors stand out from a subtle background. The depiction of the town, the lion (Wappen) or logo, the Saxon shield, the early NS eagle, and the former Bundesadler flow along with the oak-leaf borders to form an absolutely gorgeous presentment probably the only Ehrenbürger-Urkunde that was presented to Hitler that was not on parchment or paper. It is, we are sure, unique. Often these Ehrenbürger-Urkunden were not actually presented personally to the Führer, but were given a place of honor in the Ratthaus, or city hall, for all the citizens to view. We are sure that this was the case with this one. The tapestry itself measures 26 x 18 inches and the measurement with beautiful frame is 36 x 30 inches. We have never seen anything like it—ever! This is truly the finest Ehrenbürger-Urkunde ever presented. You will never see another like it.

PRICE: $2,900.00; I’m sure it’s worth much more

Silver Hitler Medallion (Item AH 21-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a commemorative piece celebrating the return of Austria to the greater German Reich on 3/13/1938. This is a very important historic medallion. On the front is a very fine depiction of Adolf Hitler and the words: “Der einer und Führer aller Deutschen,” which translates to: “The one leader for all Germans!” The back is most interesting. The swastika is superimposed over the double-headed Harpsburg eagle of the former Austrian Empire. Below this is the Innsbruck Bridge that spans the Inn River dividing Germany and Austria. It still stands today. Under the picture of the bridge are the words: “Innbrüke Braunau, and this is the place of Adolf Hitler's birth. So the bridge symbolizes in its depiction not only the return of Austria to the Reich, but the return of a man who left that area, crossed that bridge at the turn of the century as a penniless waif with nothing but visions and hopes for the future. Now he returns as the most powerful leader of the European continent with not only vision, but a mission! Around the edges of this side it says: “Die Ostmark ist Heimgekehrt 13/3/1938,” which translates to: “Austria is brought home!” Around the outer rim are the words in German: “Hauptmunzeamt Wien,” “Head Coinage Office Vienna,” and ’835’ for the silver content. This is a historically important piece of contemporary history.

Beautiful, Sculpted Bust of the Führer by Hermann Joachim Pagels (Item AH 21-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the finest Hitler busts that we have ever seen. It is life sized and sculpted by the famous German Third Reich artist Herman Pagels who was born on 11 September 1876, in Lübeck. He was a pupil of the famous sculptors Brausewetter and Breuer. Pagels’ works were often displayed in Berlin. We show here some other fine sculptures by this prolific and talented artist. The foundry marks can be found at the base of the back of the neck (Lauchhammer Bildguss 21) with a logo mark. Of course it is signed by Pagels. The plinth, of course, was in marble or granite and was a casualty of war. Seldom do you ever find one of these busts with the marble intact. They were easily broken and often looters would purposely remove them for shipping practicality. They often weighed more than the sculpture itself. We could have it professionally mounted, but that will be up to the buyer. The sculpture is roughly 12 inches high and from the back of the head to the tip of the nose is about 9 inches (in other words, life-sized). There are a few minor scratches here and there, but they don't detract and can be covered easily with an old antiquer’s trick of applying a bit of brown shoe polish. Primitive? Well, it works, and even top art galleries do this on a regular basis. All in all, Pagels probably did sculpt one of the greatest busts of Adolf Hitler rivaling Thorak, Brecker, Ley, Wolf, etc. This is really an incredible find, greatly accomplished, and prodigiously important.

The Wagner/Hitler Connection (Item AH 21-7; WAG 1-5; GEN 12-8)

DESCRIPTION: Richard Wagner und die Stadt der Meistersinger is a precious book produced to celebrate the 125th birth year of the immortal artist, Richard Wagner. It was published in 1938 and it was published with a foreword that was written by Richard Wilhelm Stock, producer of “Volksbuchs” for every German. He writes a foreword employing much in the way of comparing the great composer’s words and warnings about a Jewish menace in the arts that was carried into the policies of the NSDAP. The entire book has photos and references to Adolf Hitler's reverence and respect for the Wagner's and this the grandiose music of the master. Pictures of the Führer with Winifred Wagner, and also many of the party leaders are shown from visits to Bayreuth. Goebbels, Siebert, Ritter von Epp, Schwartz, Göring, Julius Streicher, and Amann are shown. The history of the family, the scenes from the operas, and musical scores are in beautifully produced photography. The book has 230 pages with a linen-like cover in perfect, practically mint condition. This is an extremely important historical volume. The grandsons and granddaughters posed with the Führer are perfect specimens of Aryan nobility as envisioned by National Socialist principles and agenda. The apparent parallels between Wagner's visions and the NS state are clear and concise. It's true that Wagner influenced Hitler throughout his entire life from the NS beginnings in the 1920s (“Siegfried’s Rhine Journey”) to the collapse of the Third Reich (“Götterdämmerung”). This is possibly the finest and most important book we have ever offered on Germania's site.

Leather Letter Folder Depicting Bismarck and the Führer (Item AH 21-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a very rare Kampfzeit item all hand tooled in the Hamburg art form. It’s a typical letter folder measuring 15 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. It also could be considered a desk folder that was used for storing and separating stationery, envelopes, writing pads, and important documents. The hand-cut artwork depicts two of the men whom 1930s Germans saw as the greatest of all German statesmen, Adolf Hitler and Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince von Bismarck. The leather folder is given the dates 1871 to 1933. In 1871 Bismarck became the first chancellor of the German Second Reich. He received the nickname of “Iron Chancellor.” It was he more than all others who encouraged the unification of Germany. The artist here has drawn a historical parallel between the empire-building efforts of Prince Bismarck and the Führer, Adolf Hitler, who became chancellor in 1933. The obvious comparisons are historically evident. Both men created German unity and strength. Bismarck is quoted as saying, “When Germans act in cohesiveness even the devil trembles in hell!” “WENN DIE DEUTSCHEN ZUSAMMENHALTEN SO SCHLAGEN SIE DEN TEUFEL AUS DER HÖLLE.” Hitler firmly believed this also and his speeches were replete with this unity message. The carving is quite good and the message clear. The main leather panels that make up the folder are in good shape, but they are held together with woven leather thongs known as boondoggle. This is frayed but holding. There are several sheets of blotter-style inserts inside that were supported by the owner with cardboard-repair attempts. In the front is a covered compartment for secret papers or possibly monetary funds? This section locks with a key that is still with it and provided. This is a great feature of a very fine and originally expensive writer’s accessory that would be a fine and important piece of history.

Ja” for Hitler in 1933 Pin (Item AH 21-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is a simple tin badge that simply says “Ja,” (“Yes”). It’s possibly one of the cheapest badges ever produced in the Third Reich, and in a way the most important of all. It was the badge worn by Adolf Hitler’s loyal supporters. Whenever Adolf Hitler aspired to high office the symbol Ja was his byword. The pin has the date 12.11.1933. This was the date that votes were counted and the NSDAP had received 92 percent of the votes with all districts reporting. The badge is rare although not the prettiest.

Austrian Anschluss Coin (Item AH 21-11)

DESCRIPTION: Actually, this is not a coin in the numismatic sense of the word. It's more of a token. This commemorated the Austrian Anschluss when Austria came back to its rightful place within the greater German Reich. The slogan of this amalgamation was “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer,” which means “One people, one government, one leader.” Around a bust portrait of Hitler are these immoral words. Below the neck is a signature of the token’s designer, R. Hartig. The date of 13 March 1938, is seen around the edge. It was on this date that the Führer proclaimed the Anschluss and declared that Austria was now the Ostmark, a province of the German Third Reich. On the back of the token are the words “Treue um treue,” “Faithful unto faithful.” Here also is the date April 10, 1938. This is the date that Schuschnigg, the Austrian chancellor, declared a plebiscite be held. The token is one of thousands that were thrown to the Austrian people who thronged to the Heldenplatz to greet their favorite son, former Austrian, now the leader of the two German lands now united. Yes, thousands, but now very rare and very important as a historical object. The token is copper or copper plated. It is in fine shape except for some small flaking on the plating on the letter ‘Z’ in the word ‘März’ for March. We saw one of these in a collection 29 years ago, and not since. It is truly rare!

Informal Silverware from the Table Settings of Adolf Hitler (Item AH 21-12)

DESCRIPTION: According to the book by Mark D. Griffith, M.D., the informal silverware was considered a second pattern similar to the first patten formal type except that it is rarer with only one thousand pieces having been produced, while the formal pattern by Bruckmann was manufactured in three thousand pieces. He says that this pattern has surfaced in items brought back from Munich and Berlin. This pattern is quite plain compared to the formal in that it doesn’t have the Greek key design said to have been designed by Hitler, himself. It has the eagle, swastika, and ‘AH.’ It was first thought that the eagle that shows no detail was a case of its being radically worn, but since then with a few identical pieces showing up and others beings viewed in museums it is apparent that this form is official and made purposely this way. The eagle is almost surreal in its plainness. We believe that this pattern was used in the “Braun Haus” and possibly at the Sternekerbrau plus at Hitler’s apartment on the Prinzregentenplatz and the Führerbau. Dr. Griffith says that the formal and informal patterns were manufactured around the same time. He also says that the only difference in patterns was to distinguish silver belonging to one dining room or another??? The popularity of the informal pattern is based on the fact that some collectors feel that the informal type is always more likely to have been personally used by the Führer, himself because of the lesser number of their ever having been made and distributed.

Adolf Hitler Bilder aus dem Leben des Fuhrers (Item AH 21-13)

DESCRIPTION: This is the famed cigarette-card book put out by the Altonia Tobacco Company in Bahrenfeld. This is the one that so many people when acquiring one think it to be Hitler’s personal album of photos. One dealer not long ago advertised it as exactly that and Mr. Fishbein wanted $8,000 for it and the incredible part is that he actually found a customer. During the 1930s cigarette packages had a coupon inside and you would send in so many coupons and you would receive a packet of pictures in the mail that you would then paste into an album that you ld have purchased for only 5 marks from the company. When you had all the packets this would complete this beautiful book and would be the pride of a patriotic household. Late, it was discontinued as the Third Reich and Hitler disapproved of smoking or the use of tobacco. The title refers to Adolf Hitler Pictures from the Life of the Leader. The black-and-white pictures throughout are crisp and clear and were taken by the personal photographer of Hitler, Herr Heinrich Hoffmann. The book was produced in the millions, but is considered quit rare today in any condition. It is still the greatest accumulation of fine photographic studies of Adolf Hitler and his time. There are 132 pages of sharp images and explanatory text; hundred of photos of historic events, the army, navy, SS and SA, Wehrmacht (armed forces), important buildings, even a section showing paintings and drawings by the Führer, himself. Pictures ranging in size from 4 x 3 inches to 7 x 5 inches are included within the pages. The book measures 12 x 9 1/2 inches and is 1 inch thick. This particular edition is in practically mint condition and is complete with all pictures intact. This is an important archival treasure in this condition.

Painting on Black Velvet of Hitler’s Home in the Obersalzberg (Item AH 21-15)

DESCRIPTION: This was Haus Wachenfeld, a stately little estate that was first rented by Adolf Hitler. He rented it in 1927 for 100 Reichmarks a month and he secured the rights to purchase it in 1932. He bought the house in June of 1933 for 40,000 gold marks. He had it remodeled in 1933 after his becoming Reichskanzler. This is the way you see it in the picture that we offer. Later, it went under an extensive remodeling and that resulted in the Berghof in 1936. There are many web sites where you can see the Haus Wachenfeld and the transformation to the Berghof. See especially the pictures on the site “Third Reich in Ruins” by Geoff Walden. Google “Obersalzberg-Hitler” and it will come up. Back to the picture. This is the typical Andenken or souvenir that adoring German folk would purchase back in that time in the shops down below in Bertesgaden. They probably did a “land-office” business with such great-looking things all because of their famous neighbor up there in the Obersalzberg. Today, however, a piece like this is indeed scarce. The frame measures 28 x 22 1/2 inches and the actual cloth measures 19 x 14 inches. So it is a very nice size to feature in a collection. Under the depiction of the house is the legend “Landhaus unseres Führers,” “Country house of our leader.” We think it to be an exciting find and its historical significance is duly noted.

Book Mijn Kamp; Dutch Language Version of Mein Kampf (Item AH 21-16)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a real WWII rarity; a copy of Hitler’s Mein Kampf in Dutch. It’s really the standard version, but in the Dutch language. Very rare and produced by the Dutch newspaper Der Amsterdamische Keurkamer in Amsterdam. The book has the standard Mein Kampf blue cover with the traditional embossed eagle in gold color and of course the name on the spine is in Dutch. Inside the front cover is a death notice announcing that Hannes Irmscher had fallen in the east (Russia?) on 30 March 1943. There is also a Feldpost letter dated 21/6/43. We do not know if these items are connected to the book or its owner, but they were there and as far as we are concerned there they stay! The Dutch attachments to Heeres and Waffen-SS units were heroic in battle and faithful to the idea of defeating the red menace for the sake of all Europe. It would be fitting that a “Hero of Orange” might have the Führer’s book as his own. The book measures 8 x 5 inches and is nearly 2 inches thick. It’s in very good shape, with a cover crease here and there. Again, we say this is very rare, indeed.

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

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.
