A Genuine Hand-Painted Portrait of the Fuhrer on Enamel with a Bone Frame (Item AH 26-2)

DESCRIPTION: This is a German tradition that goes back for centuries. It became customary to encase hand-painted portraits on elephant ivory of famous personages in frames that were constructed also in genuine ivory. Later, in an attempt at animal conservation, the protraits were painted on enamel pieces and the frame done in bone. See our Fredrick the Great section where you will see more of this particular art form as historically used. The frame measures 4 ¾ x 6 inches. The picture with the inner copper bezel measures 3 ½ x 2 ¾.  The likeness of the German Fuhrer is no less than astounding! In artistic presentation it depicts him as he looked shortly after his assumption of complete political power in 1933.  He wears the famous overcoat that he wore all during the Kampfzeit (the struggle for power). His ever-penetrating blue eyes are fixed upon Germany’s future and the entire countenance is strong yet deeply inspirited. The tones and detail are fabulous as the depiction captures the depth and perception of the man whom Time Magazine called the "Man of the Year in 1933" with his picture on its cover. He beat out Roosevelt who also was elected in that year. This is not only an art treasure, but a prodigiously important piece of history (completely unique!).

PRICE: $1,850.00 (drastically reduced) A great investment piece

Adolf Hitler Stickpin in Pure 800 Silver (Item AH 26-4 & PINS 8-20)

DESCRIPTION: This is possible the finest stickpin that we have ever encountered in as much as detail and general design is concerned. It has a very early depiction of the German Leader.  He wears the brown shirt and tie that was pretty much his main attire from the early 20’s right up to the eve of the war in 1939 when he donned the field gray military uniform. During the “Kampfzeit,” or struggle for power, he always wore the uniform of his SA (Storm trooper) bodyguards and he considered himself one of them in spirit!  Under the portrait of the Fuhrer is the inevitable “Hakenkreuz” or Swastika.  The pin is about the size of an elongated 10 cent piece (dime) about ¾ inches the long way. The pin is in 800 silver and so stamped on the back. Please go to our Home page and read the narrative that is titled “About Our Rings and Silver Insignia.”  You will understand better how we received many of the silver insignia, etc. that is found on our pages.

Order of the German Eagle (Deutsche Adler Orden) (Item AH 26-5 & NSD 18-11)

DESCRIPTION: This is the First Class Award neck badge without swords in fine silver gilt & white enamel marked on the ring 900 and the numerals (21) with original full neck ribbon. The award is in its original white silk and black velvet lined red leatherette covered case of issue with the gold embossed national eagle on the top and inside on the white silk lining it says Verdienstekreuz 1, Stufe, Des Deutschen Adler Ordens. The award is in mint condition with all enamel intact. The 900 content marking on the medal is the highest grade silver ever used in the construction of a German Order. The case shows some wear at its corners but fine to extra fine condition both outside and interior, a scarce and highly desirable example of this rarely found order. It was one of the NS. Party’s highest honors and was awarded to prominent foreigners, particularly Diplomats sympathetic to the N.S. government. Henry Ford and was one such recipient in a much higher class of the Order and to his everlasting credit, he refused to return it when heavily pressured to do so by the F.D.R far left (practically communist) administration. This is the absolutely most beautiful order of Merit that Germany ever bestowed upon worthy recipients. Another famed American who received the Order was Charles Lindberg in 1938 and Charles J. Watson, Chairman of IBM in 1937. The Adler Order first instituted on 1 May, 1937 by Adolf Hitler, and without a doubt one of the most sought after medals of Third Reich and general medal and order collecting today.

Signed Hitler Portrait 1940’s (Item AH 26-6; RAREBOOK 1-4)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the prints that were sold by the Heinrich Hoffmann Studios in Berlin and Munich. It is a 9 ½" x 7" sketched portrait of the Fuhrer that is a wonderful accurate depiction. These portraits were from time to time signed by the Leader when he would be in the offices of Hoffmann. The only stipulation was that Hoffmann would never sell such a signed portrait but he would present them as gifts to the faithful and deserving. They were never to be sold! The picture is stamped on the back with Hoffmann’s copyright seal with his address and telephone number. We have done a close check on the signature and it passes all the tests required for an original Hitler signature. We have used, for authentication, the book “Leaders and Personalities of the Third Reich” by Charles Hamilton, Vol. 1.  According to the book, Hitler’s signature changed through the years. Thus a 1940’s signature was far different than his signature in 1906 or 1923. The one that we offer would be like the one pictured on page 39 of the Hamilton book that was from the height of the Führer's political career, July 19, 1940. After 1944, his signature radically changed again. On page 43 of the book there is an enlargement of the signature and the crossovers mentioned are clearly visible on our offering. You can see where the ink of one stroke lies on top of another.  Hitler signatures are rare today especially if the signature is on a picture.  

The picture is in a frame that looks to be silver, but we cannot guarantee that. There is a cardboard piece that the picture was adhered to but not glued. The back of the picture is intact with absolutely no marks from affixing it to the cardboard. None! The back of the frame is covered in purple velvet and has a table stand device but also has a ring so it can be hung on the wall. Yes, this is a historical treasure but the consigner offers it at a very reasonable price. I suggest that you would move on this one rather quickly as it will not last on the site for long.

A Fabulous Portrait of Adolf Hitler Painted on Bone (Item AH 26-7)

DESCRIPTION: This is an extremely fine hand painted rendering of the Fuhrer intricately executed to the furthermost artistic degree of detail. The painting depicts him in his brown political uniform. This was the official state service dress that he wore after his elevation to Reichs Chancellor in 1933. He daily wore an outfit like this until the first day of the war breaking out in 1939 and thereafter he wore the field grey uniform until the end. It has for centuries been a German tradition to do hand paintings of famous leaders on bone plainchants such as this. Generally the best of them were also framed in bone, as well, as is the case here. Sometimes silver was also utilized but the one we offer here is purely bone throughout with the only other material used being a beautiful, brass bezil that traces the outline of the picture. A ‘bubble’ surface glass cover is used over the rendering. The frame measures 5 ¾ inches x 4 ¾ inches. The painting is measured at 2 ½" x 3 ¼".  The bone frame is about ¼ inches thick. The back is covered with a dark grey fabric material and there is a small label that reads: G. Binder in the MaximillianPlatz and in German it indicates that Herr Binder was a framemaker. Different than most miniature portraits crafted in bone, this frame supplied has a mounted stand up bar on the back to facilitate its standing on a table or desk. But there is also a ring in case the owner might prefer to hang the portrait on a wall. The artistic craftsmanship overall is exquisite and the portrait is utterly phenominal. The artist brings out dramatically the countenance of Germany’s Leader in brilliant detail that could not be surpassed except for one example of one in silver framing that Germania will acquire soon. These miniatures are so rare that we will immediately book flight to Germany if necessary when we hear of one that might be for sale. That in fact was the case with his one. We decided we would not lose it. So off we went and of course combined the quest with buying other great relics but this miniature was the main reason for the trip. (It is that good!). If one would wish to have just one important Hitler item, this would certainly be a wise chose. 

PRICE: $1,400.00 but if the art world were at all sane today then it certainly should bring more than a Picasso, right?

Presentation Mein Kampf Owned by The Führer (Item AH 26-9; RAREBOOK 1-3; SPECIAL ITEMS)

DESCRIPTION: This utterly fantastic object d'art from the German Third Reich might be considered one of the finest and historically important articles found in the past dozen years. First, it was definitely a personal possession of Adolf Hitler and was in all probability a much-treasured one at that. Hitler was always cognizant of the importance of archiving and preserving the arts and crafts of the German people. This was ultimately germane and necessary to the ideology and agenda of the National Socialist mythos. This particular edition of Mein Kampf is specially decorated and adorned by artisans at the zenith of their craft. Why else would anyone present this Mein Kampfto the very author of the work? The immediate importance of this presentation was indeed the custom workmanship. The overall intricate, handmade, and very meaningful motif seems to personify the feelings, the expression, the stark realism of the proposed agendas of the "Thousand Year Reich." The publication, otherwise, is a quite normal volume of Hitler's book and that is where any recognizable identity ends, because the binding and the outer decor are a "presentment of high art in the craft of the silversmith" at the epitome. The company that produced the piece was Brunckhorst in the village of Buxtehude, and is signed this way. This art form was practiced quite uniquely by artisans there for over 1,000 years. They were noted for elegant armor and weapon appurtenances that they produced for the knights and nobility of many from a bygone age. Rare and exquisitely decorated Bibles and other religious regalia were by tradition and preference decorated by firms plying their trade in Buxtehude. It all began from very early times when this area was recognized as Der Stadt der Silberkunst—the city of silver art—and many a museum throughout the world will boast of treasured articles to include reliquary treasures encased in Buxtehude silver. Therefore it is only fitting and appropriate that a gift to the Führer of his own book would be bound with this town's memorable art form. The real specialty in silverwork that these artists had produced was the intricate filigree work that was part of almost every piece produced there. The lacy spider web of decoration has never quite been duplicated anywhere in the world and to this day remains the mark of the silversmiths of that tiny village. Buxtehude is found in the section of Germany that was designated as East Hannover. This was due to the Nazi zoning system known as the Gau, each administered by political leaders, overseers, and governed by a Gauleiter--a rank similar to a governor. The man who presented this magnificent gift to Adolf Hitler was Gauleiter Otto Telschow, who had been one of the Alte Kampfer or “Old Fighters,” faithful to the ideals and agenda of the N.S. movement as early as 1925, but earlier he had been deeply involved in nationalistic and anti-Semitic movements. He also had been very instrumental in virulent anticommunist activity. He came from an old aristocratic family of farmers which had served Frederick the Great, the illustrious King of Prussia. A cavalryman in World War I, he served until 1924 and then led Freikorps troops against the Spartacists (communists). Telschow was one of the earliest workers with the fledgling N.S.D.A.P. (Nazi Party), thus cementing an early personal and lifelong friendship with Hitler, who personally appointed him to the Gauleitership of East Hannover. Later he was further elevated in rank to the Prussian Council. He was the Gauleiter who enjoyed the closest friendship to all the German leaders. So then it occurs that on April 20, 1938 (Hitler's birthday), Otto Gauleiter Telschow presented this wonderful gift to his leader and Chancellor of the Third Reich. The entire volume is covered in red leather and then encased in silver, which is hand engraved and filigree decorated. Many configurations of ancient Germanic mythological and runic designs adorn its front, back, and spine. Each important symbol had deep meaning to Nordic and Teutonic saga, and had connotations to the overall historic mission of the "empire" that history has designated as the German Third Reich. Of all the Hitler possessions that have been found and ultimately archived, none seem to be quite as important as this particular item for all the reasons stated herein. As to archival value, the importance of the gift was immediately recognized upon its initial presentation. Inside the front cover there is a 3 x 5-inch file card which announces that this book was a gift from Gauleiter Otto Telschow of Gau East Hannover. This of course is in German and is then signed by hand across the typewritten statement by SS-Obersturmführer B. Woltz, who was known to have been the official caretaker and archivist for the German Reich's chancellor. Woltz signs in red pencil as having received this gift in good order to be added to the personal library of Hitler. Also to be perceived on this card is the handwriting of the American G.I. who had looted this book, then later trading it off for cigarettes to another looter (a Russian). He (the G.I.) does a rough translation of the above information by Woltz as he writes on the face of the card itself. The runic symbols that heavily adorn the outer cover include the Ty rune, the Hagel rune, the Seig rune, the Odel rune, the Lebensrune, and the Sinnzehn.The book measures 5 x 7 1/2 inches, the standard size of a normal Mein Kampf with a little added for the silver protrusion at the spine about 1 3/4 inches thick with a bit added for the silver. The book is very heavy with all that precious metal on it. This Hitler piece practically makes all others pale in significance. It must have surely been one of his favorite possessions in that it was his own book, but given by so close a friend and decorated in the high-art accomplishment of a company that lived up to every tradition of this the Imperium of German art and culture.

PRICE: POR; only telephone inquiries on this piece, but please observe the times to call as shown on our opening pages. No wee-hour calls!

Small Patriotic Banner with Adolf Hitler Image (Item AH 26-10)

DESCRIPTION: It could be a small banner of the type sold at patriotic rallies that Hitler frequented to give political speeches or it could have been a hand out during the election years. The receiver would often put it in the window of the house or frame it to hang on the wall to show solidarity with N.S. Principles and National agenda, in any case the little 15x 9 ½ size item in cloth would have been the proud possession of a loyal NSDAP supporter. This one was picked up in a town hall in Dusseldorf 1949 by a GI looter and he wrote at the bottom, “Hitler Dec. 1944” as if we needed to know what personage was depicted there (Duhh!).  It is a great little souvenir of the Fuhrer and NSDAP regardless of the looter's attempt to identify it.

Original Poster of Adolf Hitler from WW II Russia “Der Russlandfeldzug” (Item AH 26-11)

DESCRIPTION: This poster was typical of the type that went up all over the Russian landscape soon after the start of operation Barbarossa.  The Russian peasantry welcomed the German soldiers with singing, flowers, bread and cakes. They were overjoyed at the prospect of being finally set free from the evil yoke of Soviet Communism.  The poster shows Hitler’s official state portrait with the words in Russian that spell out “Hitler Liberator” and that is exactly what these people thought of the German leader. And that originally was the mission of the German Wehrmacht but unfortunately it failed miserably in the end due to the fact that the Generals who were in charge were mostly Prussian landed gentry and the aristocracy and they just couldn’t bring themselves to treat the Russian peasant class as equals. My historic opinion is that if that could have been different and the Oberkommando Der Wehrmacht treated these anti-Communist patriots in a more favorable manner the whole of Mother Russian might have joined them and certainly would have destroyed the monster Stalin and his nest of vipers for good but alas it failed and not because of Hitler, Himmler and the N.S. party men (no,actually the old command of the army) should have been replaced by forward thinking men such as Sepp Dietrich of the LAH and other Waffen SS personnel. A great opportunity was lost and the dark forces of Communism ended up spreading its poison all across Europe and the result was that the peasants remained slaves and the culture bearing strata of Europe was strangled and murdered possibly for all time.

The poster measures 34 x 23 (big) and is quite colorful -- the piercing magnetic eyes of the German leader are evident in this depiction. The poster was part of the display of a small Russian museum collection that was broken up a few years ago.  It was printed in Germany and produced by a company whose name appears at the right corner at the bottom, Carl Werner in the city of Reichenbach (see the picture). A very interesting and vastly important relic of the war and crusade against what President Reagan called the Evil Empire.

PRICE: $850.00 rare and prodigiously important

Hitler & Blondi at Berghof
Adolf Hitler Serving Tray from Obersalzberg Berghof  (Item AH 26-15)

DESCRIPTION: This is a fantastic find that we recently turned up in Germany.  It is a large 21 ½ x 14 meat platter that was rescued from the Berghof -- Hitler’s mountain retreat by an employee who worked in the communications center and befriended the chief cook Arthur Kannenberg who was also head of the household in Berlin, and when Hitler was in residence at the Berghof, Kannenberg would transfer there along with his Fuhrer. It was this cook who after the death of Hitler and Eva Braun knew the Russians and Americans would soon be at the door and the time of sheer horror would begin. Many of the household staff held out at the Berghof until the SS demolition squads came to blow it up so it would not become a “vacation villa” for American or Russian big wigs after the war. In those last days of ’45, Kannenberg took many possession of Hitler’s out of the villa before its destruction. He also gave away certain items from his kitchen cabinets to close acquaintances who he had formally worked with in the better days. The man who received this platter was this communications worker who we suspect was a member of the SS although our German picker was not able to fully ascertain that.  Now the question is why a meat platter when we had always been told Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian? This is for the greatest part totally false information. He actually did have a fondness for roasted game, stuffed squab, and Bavarian sausages but his favorite was by far a succulent  roasted Truthahn (turkey).  He was not however a real carnivore by any means; he avoided meat most of the time but on special occasions in the company of special guests such as Reichsmarshal Hermann Goring and special holidays such as Christmas and Easter he would indulge in meat dishes especially turkey. So in essence, we probably could call this a “turkey platter”. Such heavy silver plated dinnerware was provided by the firm of August Wellner Sohne in Schwabisch Gmund. The material is actually in Alpaca a metal that contains no silver in its content. But it had copper, nickel and zinc in its makeup; the serving trays have always been the most sought after items of Hitler memorabilia. The platter has the National Eagle with wreath and Swastika emblazoned at the top most portion when viewed with the platter standing upright on its longest axis; beside the wreath on both sides are the initials of the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler (AH); on the back of the piece is the Wellner stamp and on a bottom lip is a series of stamped numerals that identify information for inventory. The platter is quite heavy and in great condition except for a slight bulge in the center that is almost unnoticed without very close examination (See our picture).

Other Wellner pieces marked in the same way can be seen also in our pictures; these photos are from the book by Mark D. Griffith M.D. named “Collectors Guide to “Liberated” Adolf Hitler Memorabilia.” We offer this book on our Hitler pages at AH 19-6. At the time Griffith wrote the book no one even had an example of this particular tray to photograph. It is still a very rare piece of Third Reich history very seldom found, and among Hitler collectables this is considered the ultimate by the very few collectors lucky enough to find one over  the years. There were so few of them even back then that you can rest assured that Adolf Hitler for certain was at various times seated before this very platter joyfully  brought forth by Herr Kannenberg on festive occasions.

PRICE: $4,950.00 an incredibly reasonable price considering what simple Hitler flatware is selling for these days! A great investment indeed!

Original Period Pencil Drawing of the Führer (tem AH 26-18)

DESCRIPTION: This is an incredibly fine and true to life rendering of Adolf Hitler in the time of the (Kampfzeit) struggle for power. This is a period piece done in 1935 as is indicated on the back. There is writing in German there but I can’t distinguish its meaning. It is old writing and partially obliterated through time but the 1935 is bold.  Remember, this is an original drawing from the actual time of the Third Reich; very well presented and historically important for certain.  It is signed but I can’t make out the name.  The frame is original to the piece and measures 9 ¾ x 12.  The actual drawing is 4 ¾ x 6 ½.  I can’t say enough about this item; it is a pretty good work and belongs in a good collection or museum archive.

PRICE: $485.00 very, very reasonable

Two Original Pictures of Adolf Hitler (Item AH 26-19)

DESCRIPTION: These two pictures in size 4 ½  x 3 are candid pictures of the Führer interacting with Naval and Army personal. The pictures were among quite a few recently released by Russian authorities from the files of the NKVD. This was the forerunner of the present KGB.  The pictures have on their back the barely visible stamp of the murderous NKVD and the recent stamp in red of the releasing authority and some scribbling by the Soviet official who was  releasing them.  The pictures depict first the Fuhrer as he approaches a ship of the line before going aboard.  The other is interesting as he seems quite put out by a political officer and is about to dress him down for some mistake or infraction??? The officers all around the scene are rather somber and apprehensive   This would not be the type photo to be published at the time (very candid!)

Heroic Bust of a German Soldier of the Great War (Item AH 26-20 & LEIBSS 1-3 & ART 17-5; BRONZE 2-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a beautiful bronze bust of a soldat of the First World War mounted on a marble two piece base with a plaque commemorating the campaign in Poland in 1939 and the participation of the elite SS Division SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler.  It says: Polenfeldzug LSSAH, 8 9 1939 Pabiance, 15 9 1939 Bzura. Ubergand Sochaczew.

These dates and places refer to battles in the Polish campaign Pabiance was captured by the SS Leibstandarte in Sept. 1939. The battle of Bzura was a battle in the opening campaign of WWII and fought between Polish and German forces.  The SS LAH took a major part in the offensive.  These battles were named as the Sochaczew area offensive.  This would be basically the meaning of Ubergang Sochaczew.  The statue with marble base is measured at 8 inches and the bronze soldatenkopf itself is about five inches tall.  It is unsigned but a fine handsome likeness of what we call the ‘Geist Des Deutschen Soldat” (the spirit of the German Soldier).  The company of the SS LAH that added the plaque thought evidently that this would be the appropriate piece to honor their company and the Leibstandarte in general who paid the Poles back for Bronberg, Eichdorf, Hopfengarten, and Marzheim.  Read about this on the web.  The Polish attack against these innocent people was on orgy of murder and rape that is beyond belief. The testimony of 593 witnesses established the fact that at least 3841 named ethic Germans were murdered by the Poles prior to the German occupation. Is it any wonder that the Führer gave the order to invade Poland?  Yes, there was payback (in spades) but the facts run contrary to the history that is promulgated by orthodox historians of today.  Part of their agenda is to paint a picture of innocent little Poland being invaded by the nasty Nazis for no good reason. Revision is bringing history to square with the truth.

PRICE: $1,850.00 A truly important art piece of the turbulent times.

Hitler Rosenthal Plaque by State Portrait Artist Willy Exner (AH 26-21)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a portrait of the Führer at the height of his power wearing the famed great coat.  The painting was officially the state portrait and hung in public buildings, schools and official offices throughout the Reich. Willy Exner was said to be one of the favorite artists of Hitler himself. The finished portrait certainly brings out the determination and resolve of the man. See also the larger Exner piece at AH 22-2. This smaller rendering has its original frame as supplied with the porcelain by the Rosenthal Company. A website identified as “Ruptured something or another” said that these pieces were sold unframed and it was left to the buyer to frame them. This is only partially true. They were sold unframed or framed with the buyer having the option. In this case the one that we have is in the distinctive Rosenthal frame.  It measures 7 inches wide by 9 inches tall by itself and with frame it measures 10 ½ x 13. The Rosenthal Company that is now in New Democratic Germany doesn’t like to admit that they produced these and that they were the most popular porcelain item that they ever made (ever!). Most of them were destroyed after the war and these are quite rare today. The back of the plaque has the Rosenthal emblem in print and also the Rosenthal sticker slightly worn and the title – Der Führer Gemalde von Will Exner.  (Painted by Willy Exner). Also someone back then wrote in German -- Deutsche Weihnacht 1938 in Der Befreiten Ostmark.  This translates to Germanic Christmas 1938 in liberated Austria.  Austria was annexed to Germany 12 March 1938 due to a popular plebiscite of 73% or more of the populace who were overjoyed to be able to once more be part of the greater German Reich. Most actual records of the time show that it was by a plurality of over 90 %. Flags, books, gifts of all kinds with swastikas and especially items with the likeness of the German Führer were produced and enjoyed and treasured by the joyful people of this Ostmark, this brother land!

So, this Rosenthal Hitler plaque or porcelain picture was probably one of the finer Anschluss gifts that was given during this momentous time. The condition is perfect and the idea spectacular. Rosenthal was one of the finest porcelain manufacturers in Europe. A beautiful and prodigiously important historical relic of the turbulent time

Original Early Sketch by Adolf Hitler Accompanied With Official Provenance (Item AH 26-22 & ART 17-7)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an incredible find. A great sketch rendered by Adolf Hitler just before WW I. The sketch is of the famed Munich Isator (the old city gate that dates from the 14th century. As fate would have it the famous Beer Hall Putsch of Nov 9th, 1923 proceeded through the Isator.  You can see Hitler and his followers passing through it on that fateful day. See it on a site named Hitler pages München.)

There were four gates that were entrance points of the old walled city.  The Karl’s Gate, the Sendlingern gate, the Schwabingertor and the Isator. Only the Schwabingertor is no longer there (demolished at the beginning of the 19th century). The famous Feldherrenhalle stands at that site today. In 1984 Billy V. Price of Texas published a book on Adolf Hitler’s art titled ‘Adolf Hitler the Unknown Artist.’ In this beautiful edition he shows many Hitler oils, watercolors and sketches done by Germany’s future Fuhrer in his early years. It is interesting to note that Hitler was somehow inspired by these Munich gates and often portrayed them in his art renderings. In Price's book there are several depictions in sketches of the Sendlinger Tor, and the Karlstor but none of the Isator. Now it only stands to reason that he would have sketched the three gates that still existed in his time. When one observes the watercolor of the Sendlinger Tor on page 175, at the bottom of the page you can sense the identical style as seen in the sketch we offer here. We believe we have turned up the missing gate by A. Hitler. So here we proudly present the Isortor and with this rendering is an official provenance dated August 2, 1981 by Professor August Priesack. This man and one Herr Peter Jahn of Vienna (both deceased) were the only reliable persons who were known and trusted researchers of Hitler paintings and sketches. Herr Jahn was a noted authority of Hitler’s art and actually was employed by Reichskanzler Hitler when in 1935 a systematic search for Hitler’s art was given an official status by the historical research division of the NSDAP central archival authority. Jahn was given the task of recovering Hitler’s works of art. This so-called ‘secret section’ was exclusively involved in researching Hitler’s past. Two archivists Wilhelm Dammn and Dr. Professor August Priesack worked together and were responsible for authenticating all Hitler art that could be purchased or borrowed. The actual search for the artworks was carried out by the staff members under the departmental jurisdiction of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess. When a painting or drawing was located, the staff’s cultural attaché Dr. Ernst Schulte-Strathaus turned over the work to Herr Dammann and Dr.Professor Priesack for thorough examination. Two years after the Munich team of Dammann and Priesack had begun its work the Chief Officer of the German Embassy in Vienna Baron Otto Von Stein contracted the Viennese art historian and dealer Peter Jahn at the behest of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP and requested his help in locating those of the Führer's works done in Austria. Herr Jahn took the assignment and on two occasions personally delivered paintings to the NSDAP headquarters in Munich where he met Hitler and discussed art and Hitler’s early experiences in Vienna. Before his death Dr. Priesack had accomplished significant research in the field and possessed the largest collection of documentation on Hitler’s art in the world.  With Peter Jahn these two men were considered the last surviving experts on the authentication of Adolf Hitler’s art.  Without the accompaniment of provenance of either of these two historians and researchers one can never be quite sure of the authenticity of Hitler’s paintings or sketches. 

We are proud of this marvelous acquisition with Dr. Priesack's signed statement accompanying it. The Isator sketch is measured at 24 x 32 and the respected professor basically says:   (Expertise)

“The above is a photocopy that shows a finely executed pencil drawing,  of the stable-end of the Munich Isator and is a genuine work of the artist Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) the original size is 24 x 32 (cm). This rendering was originated circa 1913-1914 and produced when his signature corresponds within this date.  This was a favorite motif of Adolf Hitler. Offered by Dr. A. Priesack since 1935 specialist of or the works of Adolf Hitler (Munich 8.2.1981)."

Dr. Priesack's archive stamp also appears with his former office address, and it of course signed in hand by the professor. The Hitler signature is just as the Herr Professor has indicated, correct for that early time in Hitler’s life. The sketch is nicely framed and matted on a special hand-made frame measuring 18 ½ by 29 ½ inches. The actual drawing is about 12 inches by 10 inches mounted and matted. Within the frame is a 6 ½ x 8 ½ copy of an early picture of the young Hitler. The drawing is museum mounted (not glued) inside the frame and the glass is of special non-glare construction that makes the glass virtually invisible with UV filtering.  The matting is expertly done with expensive craft paper and the sketch is deeply set to avoid contact with the glass. Spacers were utilized. The result is that the artwork looks to be floating in the frame.  This is the most desirable method when framing an important art work such as this. The framing of this sketch was done with absolute mastery of the framing art.  A copy of the Preisack letter is in a pocket on the back of the frame but the original letter goes with the purchase of course. Here is a rare chance to own an authentic drawing by the 20th century’s most famous world leader.  A man whose watercolors are highly sought after and bring “astronomical prices” while the renderings of Winston Churchill (who fancied himself an artist and ‘Ike’ Eisenhower’s paintings bring very little on the art market) but before anyone jumps to the conclusion that it is only the morbid collector who would collect Hitler’s paintings and drawings because of his so-called “evil image”-(debatable!)  Think about war criminal Churchill’s orders resulting in the genocide perpetrated against the thousands of innocent people of Dresden and “Ike’s outright heinous genocidal order murdering nearly a million German POWs in the prisoner of war camps along the Rhine in 1945. (Please read David Irving’s “Destruction of Dresden” and James Bacque’s, “Other Losses” available from Amazon books on the internet). Adolf Hitler was in fact a darned good artist while Winnie and Ike were less than mediocre as painters.

PRICE: $15,000.00.  This is a great investment for the price of this leader’s special art that will continue to elevate in value quickly in a very short time

Glass Beer Mug from the Burgerbraukeller in Munich Commemorating Adolf Hitler’s Release from Prison (Item AH 26-23)

DESCRIPTION: Adolf Hitler was released from Landsburg Prison after being sentenced to five years for his leading part in the famous Beer Hall Putsch. He emerged free on December 20, 1924 just five days before Christmas. A celebration of the event was held at the Burgerbraukeller, the famed Beer Hall that was the staring place of the “Putsch”.  The hall was bedecked with garlands of holly and mistletoe and a festive Weihnachtenfest was enjoyed by a select grouping of specially invited guests. The participant listing reads like a "who’s who" of National Socialism. Only the man dressed as Saint Nicholas (Der Weihnachtsmann) was unknown. In commemoration of this joyful event, the owners and managers of the Burgerbraukeller decided to have special beer mugs, or steins, produced by the Krone glass works in Munich. The result was a neat little mug with ‘dimples’.  This was a typical Munchner Bier glass with 23 indentations all the size of a five cent U.S. coin. You can place you finger rather deeply into them. The main feature was a stamped portrait of the hero of the hour! The young Adolf Hitler then 35 years old and now ready to win power but now by legal means, but with tough resolve and iron clad determination to win! And he did!!! The picture depicts him in this young age with the year 1924 below.  Later the company actually had these mugs available for sale in their lobby sales area and just about anyone who visited the restaurant could buy one for about 15 Reich-marks. Today they are very rare and the value has markedly increased.  However, Germania International tries to keep such ultra-rare items affordable so we offer this significant historical relic for only...

Bronze Bust of Adolf Hitler by Nikolaus Schmidt (Item AH 26-24 & BRONZE 1-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a large life size bust of the Führer. We can’t at this time find any information about the artist but we are certain he was famous in his time and the obvious proof of that is the fact that his bust of Hitler was featured in the April 1941 edition of the magazine for the SA (Sturmabteilung) or Brown Shirts (see our picture gallery). It is very rarely that we ever find a bust of the German leader with its original marble base still attached and intact; of course this makes this sculpture very heavy. The sculpture itself is about 13 inches high while the base is 9 inches square and 4 ½ inches deep.  The likeness is astounding! There are a couple of scratches at the left cheek but they hardly show when viewing the actual bust.  Obviously the magazine being an April edition would have had an article about the Führers birthday (April 20th) and we would wager that Schmidt’s sculpture was the one chosen for the celebration in 1941. In other years some other artistic perceptions of the Führer were featured, such as the ones by Wolf, Liebermann, Ley, Flettner, etc.  We think this one by Schmidt is one of the very best renderings of “The man of the century”!

Reich’s Chancellery Serving Tray (Item AH 26-25)

DESCRIPTION: Here, from the National Socialist Reichskanzlei, is an original platter of the type used by the Allgemeine-SS servers within the chancellery along with other service personal to bring soft drinks and alcoholic beverages to the Führer and his honored guests. This was one of the special Wellner serving pieces that made up the set of such items kept and used in this the most architecturally beautiful yet most important building of the Reich. There may have been 8 or 10 of these trays, but how many of them can be accounted for today? Was Hitler himself ever served from this particular tray brought by one of the nattily dressed SS guards? The odds would tend to say ‘yes,‘ even ‘indubitably yes,’ as the Fuhrer would several times a day summon natural mineral water or a hot chocolate drink that seemed to settle his nerves that were much more on edge here in the workplace than at the Obersalzburg, his place of rest. It was at the Obersalzberg that several more of these Wellner trays were stored and the only difference being that the ones at the mountain retreat have almost the same eagle motif but with “A H” for Adolf Hitler unlike the Chancellery pieces that have “R K” for Reichskanzlei. If you would like to know more about these rare pieces see the Reich’s Chancellery Meat Platter and Cover at AH 25-11. There you will see a meat platter from the Chancellery that we sold some time ago. The serving tray is every bit as important as the meat platter especially since the Führer was a vegetarian and probably would not have been at the table when meat was served. He didn’t smoke either but the Wellner silver service groups contain cigar and cigarette cases. Contrary to dubious biographer information Hitler was very liberal about such habits of his entourage and guests’ habits as long as they didn’t indulge in them in his presence. Alcohol was an exception and even though he didn’t indulge himself he never denied guests and comrades the chance to drink a cordial or a beer while conversing with him. So what does this say? Well, I think it is pretty much a cinch that this tray was one that Adolf Hitler surely would have been served from. The tray is very heavy and is made from Rostfrei-Stahl (stainless steel). It measures 15 ½ inches in diameter. It has the exclusive Hitler Chancellery eagle with the “R K” at its topmost quadrant. It has the Wellner stamp on its backside and a serial no. or identification number at the bottom edge-156524. Here is a wonderful relic of the turbulent time in history that existed for a short time and its eventual tragic fall probably signaled and prompted the terrible scenario that now exists in its wake. Author Patrick Buchanan refers to that in his prophetic book The Death of the West, but regardless of the fact that the four horsemen are now saddling up we as speak, we as custodians of history can still—for now—enjoy the rare relics of the past and reflect on these words ”Kein Volk lebt länger als die Dokumente seiner Kultur” “No people live longer than the documentation of their culture.” Here we offer a very significant document of a culture “Gone with the Wind.”

Sailboat-Racing Plaque

Small, Hitler Plaque (Item AH 26-27)

DESCRIPTION: This little, Führer plaque measures only 3 x 2 ½ inches yet it is definitely a 100-percent original at the time of the rallies of the NSDAP in Nuremberg. Kitsch items such as these were sold at the very early rallies until the party forbade it. Kitsch items are extremely collectible today as they are always very early in Third Reich history. The plaque is in white metal material and has a hanging hook on the back.

Hand-Painted Likeness of Adolf Hitler on a Cigarette Case (Item AH 26-28)

DESCRIPTION: Here is what I would call the “ultimate in a Kampfzeit articles” (Kampfzeit = Time of Struggle). Here is the depiction of the man who would rise to Führer of his nation and is pictured as he looked in the 1920’s—about the time of the famed “Beer Hall Putsch.” Because of the artistic mastery of the artist, he has captured all the resolve and determination of this man, whose march to destiny could not be curtailed until it was finally met in 1945. At this point, however, he was the struggling revolutionary who was dedicated to awakening his nation to the dangers it faced from international communism. Deutschland Erwache (“Germany Awake!”), this motto of the NS party, was proclaimed now from the Rhine to the Elbe. We present now this extremely rare pre-1933 fine, artistic accomplishment. It would not have been painted on a cigarette box after 1933, as smoking was highly discouraged and even forbidden in party circles once the NSDAP was in power, and a cigarette case bearing the likeness of the Führer? Never! So, you can see how utterly rare this object truly is. This man’s mission, as he saw it, was a great crusade to bring Germany into the halls of an Aryan “Imperium” and he almost accomplished it! His is the story of an almost impossible rise to greatness from virtually nothing, yet he was destined to become the most powerful individual that the world has ever seen or probably ever will; however, here he is as the young rabble rouser—as his enemies called him. He is seen in the brown shirt and N.S. armband, and this was his outfit of the 1920’s and early 30’s. These were the days of the fierce street battles between his brown-shirt SA (Sturmabteilung) “Storm Troopers” and the red rabble of the murderous 'Rot Front' gangsters. This was the “make or break period” and Hitler persevered when all seemed hopeless and lost; finally, in 1933, it all emerged as worth all the struggle and loss–Germany was awake! The case is made of alpaca silver and is so marked. Alpaca is otherwise known as German silver and the word “Alpaca” is so marked inside the rim. The painting is in fine shape with the slightest of scratches visible only under magnification. The case measures 3 x 3 ¼ inches, which is the standard size for a cigarette box of that time. The case closes tightly shut with an audible SNAP! There is a curvature to the case just as the best of these cases were constructed to fit the curvature of the body of the person who carries it in the shirt or hip pocket. As Hitler-related items go, I would have to say that this one is not only unusual and rare, but prodigiously important to contemporary history, as well. The excellence of the hand painting is obvious and this iconic image is something very special. Wunderbar!

PRICE: Price $2,500.00; an excellent investment, indeed

Adolf Hitler “Die Intarsie” (Marquetry) (Item AH 26-29)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a National Socialist relic that is not only a prodigiously historically important relic, but is an accomplished art masterpiece, in our opinion. Intarsie translates to the English word “Marquetry,” but in fact, this word might have French origins. In any case, it is the highly skilled art of inlaying material such as wood piece by piece into a wood surface for the creation of a work of finished art. This process was often accomplished in fine and elegant furniture but also in portraits such as this one that we offer here. Another way this marquetry is described comes with the word “intarsia” and it reached a high point of development in its use by the Dutch and Germans in the 17th century. Very few major intarsia artists were capable in later centuries; however, there were some twentieth-century artists, mostly in Germany, who excelled in the art. The picture of Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler done in this manner is quite exceptional. Imagine for a moment the skillful application and it is awesome indeed. To be able to hand set pieces of wood into a wooden slab and make it a realistic portrait of a human being and with upmost accuracy is nothing short of ‘mind boggling.’ To paint a portrait is one thing, but to create an exact likeness in this genre is almost impossible to contemplate. The picture is 12 x 9 ½ inches in size and it has a narrative on the back that first explains in German the art of Intarsie and then speaks about this particular piece and tells about the fact that this Hitler portrait was assembled with 19 different species of wood:
1. Pear
2. Ebony
3. Holly
4. Walnut
5. White plane-tree
6. Boxwood
7. Makassar Ebony
8. Lemon
9. Cherry
10. American ash
11. Swedish birch
12. Zebrawood
13. Mahogany
14. Grey plane-tree
15. Oak
16. Australian ash
17. French walnut
18. Light rosewood
19. Hazelwood
There are 86 single pieces and the framing section is made from aged Mackasar ebony and this art piece was registered as an official Reichspatent; in other words, a “National Treasure” of sorts. The description above starts with the statement that the project was begun with much love and handwork, excellence, and dedicated to the subject of the portrait of Herr Adolf Hitler. The project succeeded in depicting a remarkable lifelike image of the German leader as well as any painted portrait could do. The artist has even remarkably brought forward the special eyes of the subject so often visited in story and song. No politician before or since had this special magnetism reflected in the eyes. To be able to realistically capture this in marquetry is amazing and beyond! Even the rakish angle of his necktie is Hitler ‘all the way.’ Here is an ultra-important historical item, but also an item that is unique and an example of a long-lost art.
