Magnificent Black Forest Carving Depicting Adolf Hitler (Item AH 31-1; ART 18-9)

DESCRIPTION: In 1933, Germany experienced the Machtergreifung, Adolf Hitler's victory and ascension to power when Reichs president Paul von Hindenburg appointed him to the office of Chancellor of the German Reich. The church bells in all of Germany rang in jubilant cheer and the faithful National Socialist supporters were ecstatic with hope and pride at this highly auspicious occasion. Almost before Hitler physically entered the Reichstag, artists both professional and amateur were busy turning out charming figurines, paintings, drawings, and all sorts of art depicting their leader. The piece we offer here is a woodcarving in the traditional Black Forest style. For centuries throughout the dense Schwartzwald there have been expert woodcarvers. Their usual specialties were the famous coo-coo clocks, but carvings of forest animals were also made. Masterfully carved forest creatures and colorful local folk in their typical native and sectional costumes are prevalent. In Europe, finer Black Forest carvings became a symbol of luxury and wealth. The finest of these were often found in royal collections and elite collectors’ homes. Victorian world travelers adored these items and paid heavily to acquire them. During the period 1806 through the 1900s, the popularity was also growing in many overseas markets, as well. Some of the figures that warmed the hearts of Americans were boars--the most commonly depicted animal--stags, eagles, dogs, and of course important and often-humorous human figures were common when depicting woodland folk, but with this particular depiction we offer here, very special and masterful detail had to be achieved as no doubt this was a very special project possibly commissioned by a local town council or even the Bürgermeister to commemorate the earth-shattering event when the former Grand Marshal of the Army and now the Reichs president conferred this supreme leadership on a former corporal in a Bavarian infantry regiment. The facial expression in this magnificent carving is nothing short of amazing! To achieve this degree of perfection in woodcarving is very notable indeed and the artist that turned out this impressively beautiful and striking artwork had to be a highly rated virtuoso in this demanding field. Note in our images the column support of the bust. Its whole message seems to convey the message "The Awakening" and advancement of the Third German Reich; the rising sun portrays this idea. The heads of the eagles seem to depict the boldness of the coming era and its promise of a Teutonic national identity. This sculpture by a highly skilled artisan of his day seems to say it all. It is truly a great and exquisite rendering that is surely unique!

Postcard with Greeting sent by Adolf Hitler and Important Party Leaders (Item AH 31-2; PERS 7-7; AHSIG 3-2)

DESCRIPTION: This picture postcard was sent to Frau Rust, an early secretary for the NSDAP. It’s postmarked from Nuremberg on 28 July 1931, and is written in pencil and conveys the heartfelt greetings from the following:

Adolf Hitler. A personal greeting and an early signature

Julius Streicher. Gauleiter of Franconia; he was a delegate to the Reichstag from Thuringen

Dr. Herbert Albrecht. A very early party member from May 1923

Julius Schaub. One of Hitler’s main adjutants; he was a recipient of the Golden NSDAP Party Badge number 81

The front of the card is a lithograph depicting Die Burg (Castle) im Westen. Additionally, there is a postcard provenance dated 27 July 1976. (Coincidentally, it was sent one day before the postcard was sent 45 years earlier!) Ben E. Swearingen, of Lewisville, Texas, who was long-time collector and ultracompetent authority on Third Reich memorabilia, delivered the provenance to Mr. Frank Gish, another long-time collector from Tustin, California. It's interesting to note that Swearingen identified all the "difficult" signatures on the card, yet neglected to mention Hitler's! We suppose he took that one for granted! For those not familiar with Dr. Herbert Albrecht, he was one of the earliest supporters of Hitler and after the Machtergreifung he became a Gauleiter and a member the Reichstag. Earlier, he was a member of the famed Deutschvolkischer Schutz und Trutzbund (German Nationalist Protection and Defiance Federation). This is a stunning collection of signatures of early members of the Nazi Party, predating Hitler's meteoric rise to power.

Adolf Hitler Depiction on a Silver Ring (Item AH 31-3; SPECIAL SALE)

DESCRIPTION: This was a part of what was a limited series of "patriot" rings that were sold after the Machtergreifung (ascension to power in 1933) when Hitler was appointed Reichs Chancellor. This was cause for patriotic jubilation throughout the Vaterland and plaques paintings, wood carvings, swastika flags, and commemorative jewelry such as this ring suddenly appeared--some of it crafted by master jewelers. This ring was the most popular model, but we've never seen one with the wreaths on the sides showing red enamel inserts. The ring is in a large size (12). It shows extensive wear and is stamped "800" (silver) on the outside shank of the ring, but this is mostly worn off from honest and probably constant wear by the original stalwart NADAP member. Here is a great original Kampzeit article of historic importance.

PRICE: $1,250.00. 0ur apologies. This ring was priced incorrectly and taken off the site temporarily by the consigner, but it is now back and with the correct price.

Authentic Period Bust of Adolf Hitler (Item AH 31-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great depiction of the German Führer mounted on a marble base. The likeness to Adolf Hitler is remarkable indeed; although not signed, the image looks to be very possibly by the famed female artist and sculptor Hedwig Maria Ley, who was said to be the favorite artist of Hitler. The bust is fashioned in bronze-toned meta—possibly gypsum. The bust was part of a museum collection that was purchased. The piece measures about 6 1/2 inches high not counting the base and about 4 1/2 inches from the back of the head to the tip of the nose. The marble base measures three inches square and two inches deep. The patina is a bit rough and it's plain to see that it has been "around the Horn," so to say. There is also a tiny dent at the very crown of the head (hardly noticeable). The patina loss is evident but it is not rust or corrosion and can be replenished by someone who knows what they are doing. The face is un-marred and practically perfect. Note: This is an original and important antiquity and is most presentable as it is. The piece is original and period is the key word. Such original, politically incorrect antiquities do not come up very often. This bust should be priced at much more so it is really a bargain.

PRICE: $1,270.00

Charming Little Beer Stein – Hitler Berghof (Item AH 31-5)

DESCRIPTION: Here is indeed a little charmer; a beer mug that depicts the Bavarian sites most beloved by Adolf Hitler. This is a petite stein 4½ inches by about 5 inches not counting the handle. The scenes depicted are the Königsee, Bad Reichenhall, and the Berghof. All of these places are presented in high relief on a beautiful blue-glazed background encrusted with charming edelweiss flowers, Die Lieblingsblume des Führers (Hitler’s favorite flower.). Bad Reichenhall had a training camp and HQ of the Gebirgsjäger (Mountain Troops); several National Socialist political offices were there, also. The area was very meaningful to the NSDAP in that it considered the land, Bavaria, as the heart of the movement. The Königsee was practically considered a hallowed place and Heinrich Hoffman, Hitler’s personal photographer, liked to take pictures of the future Führer with this beautiful lake as a natural setting in the background. In the third frame we see the Berghof, the palatial chalet that was considered the home of the Führer when he visited this area of the Bavarian Alps. He loved the Obersalzberg and the people, who were its proud and noble inhabitants. Here is a charming little item of glücklich (happiness) from a better time.

PRICE: SOLD

Original Hitler Bust in Plaster of Paris (Item AH 31-6)

DESCRIPTION: Not ever German patriot who had a Messianic view of the Führer in the early days before the Machtergreifung, 30 January 1933, had the money to purchase a fine bust of him in bronze, so they would visit the many shops in Berlin and Munich, etc., and would often purchase a bust made in his image molded in plaster of Paris. Another reason for this selection was that the bronze busts besides being costly did not for some of the Volk seem personal and lifelike and the plaster ones were somewhat more a natural-looking piece of artistic endeavor. These little busts cost only a few marks at the time and filled the needs of the loyal admirers in their patriotic zeal. The bust stands about 7 inches high and the base is 3x2½ inches and for being 87-plus years old, it is in great shape. There are a few pinhole-sized spots here and there (very few). The tip of his nose has a slight blemish, but all in all the condition is superb! The coloration is perfection personified! He wears the brown shirt of the Kampzeit (Struggle for Power); even his famous eye perception is amazingly brought forth. The back of the bust has the artist’s logo signature. Schmidt-Hoffer produced many personality figures in his Berlin studio. He died in 1925, but the company that he founded continued to use his facsimile signature on its products, which included bronze, zinc, and evidently plaster, as well, or so it seems. In any case, this is a handsome little bust and still inexpensive today.

PRICE: $350.00; Not $3,500.00, like a bronze one would cost

Pocket Mirror that Depicts the Birth House of Adolf Hitler in Braunau am Inn, Austria (Item AH 31-7; NSD 22-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is one the mirrors from a collection in Nuremberg, Germany. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. This being one of the pieces is probably the most desirable of all. It depicts the house in which Adolf Hitler was born near the Austrian-German border. A view of the house is depicted and under it the wording "UNSERES FÜHRERS GEBURTSSTATTE IN BRAUNAU AM INN"–"Our Leader's Birthplace in Braunau am Inn." The mirror's obverse side is in great shape, but the reflective mirror looks like it might have been replaced at some time in the past; however, it’s holding fine but shows some minute chips along the edges. It measures almost three inches in diameter and is very impressive looking and is obviously an important historic relic that makes a statement. It would have been a demonstration by the patriotic lady of her faith in her leader and his party and Deutschland!

NSDAP Mirror with Salute to Adolf Hitler (Item AH 31-8; NSD 22-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the pieces that we bought out of a very special, private European collection. Until we managed to buy this collection of six pieces, these mirrors were extremly rare and still are. As mentioned in the ones listed above they are attractive items carried in the purses of patriotic N.S.-oriented women as a "tell the world" trinket that demonstrates the ladies' political sentiments in defiance of the Red Front and reactionary forces. This one in particular made no bones about it along with the early N.S eagle, pre-Machtergreifung style of the late 1920s. This eagle was exactly the type seen on the kepis of the SA Brown Shirt Troopers. The motto seen is the blatantly proud: "Heil Hitler!" and our dear lady says to the world, "I hope it does not offend you, but if it does, then tell it to the SA!" The reflective mirror portion seems a bit loose and has some tiny chips along its edges, but the obverse with eagle and statement are in fine condition. The mirror measures a little over 2 inches in diameter. This is a true original Kampzeit article of historic importance.

Special Edition of the Official NSDAP Newspaper I.B. Illustrierter Beobachter (Illustrated Observer) Published by the Franz Eher Verlag in Munich (Item AH 31-9; NSD 22-14)

DESCRIPTION: Miraculously, here is very probably one of the only editions ever published of this chronicle that surely is the saga that is an ultra-important time in German History in this condition. We say “miraculous” because of the obvious fragility of this type of newspaper. This was specially issued on November 14, 1935, almost 86 years ago. It is more than remarkable that it survived that long. The issue is special in that it is a pictorial chronicle of the “Beer Hall Putsch” that took place on November 8-9, 1923. This became a yearly, almost sacred, reenactment by the original participants including Adolf Hitler, and this journal made a special edition that covered the history of that event in vivid pictures. See in our images the cover with special red band, removable attachment with words proclaiming the event title and announcing that there are pictures of the events in this edition—and pictures there are! Dozens of them!); very great and dramatic photo coverage. The edition is complete with the Putsch memories being at least half the content. This is an archival treasure without any doubt. It’s in very good condition with very minor edge-of-page wear. Some of the inner pages are loose and somewhat unattached, but all there and good! I doubt that there would be one of these special issues in this condition even internationally.

Very Special Children’s Schoolbook on the Life and Career of Adolf Hitler
Wonderful Illustrations and Printed in N.S. Aryan Script
(Item AH 31-10; RAREBOOK 2-27)

DESCRIPTION: We can’t stress enough the rarity of this beautiful book. When the Third Reich was finally murdered, the very first act of the victors’ Denazification Program was the removal and subsequent burning of all books, posters, and writings reminiscent of the N.S. Reich–especially in the schools. The job was so effectively thorough that in almost all cases not a single such schoolbook survived this terrible conflagration. The book that we are fortunate enough to offer is a Schul-Ausgabe (special school edition or output). The printing that can for the most part cannot be read by modern German graduates is called Sütterlin script and was taught in the schools in the time of the Third Reich. The N.S. educators referred to it as Aryan script. The title of the book translates from the Sütterlin script to A True story The book was published in Stuttgart in 1936. This was a very special edition that would remain in the classroom and it would be a teaching guide that was read aloud by the instructor while pictures from a slide projector with the same scenes were shown to the children. The book itself was put before certain students that wanted to write various theses on the subject and the theme was the life of the Führer Adolf Hitler. We are practically certain that thousands of these books were put to the fire, but this one was snatched by a G.I. (one of the destroyers) as his war trophy! He kept it in good order over these some 75 years or so and for this we are grateful, as you should be if you are fortunate enough to become its owner. There is a copy of it in the special collections in the libraries of the University of Washington; Juvenile Literature Section.

The Book

It is an artistic, pictorial work that chronicles the career of Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler from the time of his childhood in Braunau am Inn, Austria. It then tells about his favorite childhood pastimes playing soldier and reading military histories. It traces his excellence in schooling, his penchant for painting (watercolors) and sketching. It goes into his deep spiritual reverence and the sad loss of his parents. He especially loved and adored his mother. He also loved Germany and many times longingly looked across the border. So after a long sojourn in Vienna where he met hunger and hardship he learned the virtue of labor and the value of courage, patriotism, and loyalty to one’s principles. When the great war began, he moved to Bavaria, Germany, and became a soldier in the Bavarian army and was assigned to the most dangerous duty that a soldier could do, a dispatch runner and in this role he actually managed to capture a whole French platoon with a ruse that he learned by his reading the Wild West books of Karl May. In this fabulous action he won the both the Iron Cross First Class and the Iron Cross Second Class. The illustrations show that shortly after that, he became temporarily blinded by gas at the Front and was hospitalized back in Germany and the pictures show him blinded while Red Revolutionaries were beginning their uprising against the Fatherland. Then the illustrations depict his speaking to members of the DAP (German Workers’ Party) on the subject of red revolution and why it must absolutely be crushed. Then after this, the name of the group becomes the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and we see our Adolf speaking to multitudes in the public arenas. Then there is a somber picture of the crosses of the martyred dead of the Putsch of November 9, 1923, before the Feldherrenhalle followed by a picture of a writing desk in a jail cell at Landsberg where Hitler wrote Mein Kampf. After this there is a page filled with party faithful with swastika flags as the party gains power. The last page celebrates the Machtergreifung (seizure of power 30 January 1933). Here we see the figure of the Führer in a hotel window receiving a torch light tribute from overjoyed followers. The pictures we have described are all presented in an excellence of taste that would hold the innocent child’s interest and fascination and put forward in a fashion that the young folk would not only enjoy, but share with youthful enthusiasm and an incessant desire to learn more about the NSDAP and what it meant to them as potential future party members. It was a learning masterwork. The book is in extra-fine condition throughout, and measures 8¼ x 11½ inches. Propaganda? Yes, but in its day it would have been considered beneficial propaganda with proper agenda forthwith. Rare. Very rare!

Aquarelles by Adolf Hitler (Item AH 31-11)

DESCRIPTION: This is what Germans would call a "Mappe." It is a hardcover portfolio with four cardboard flaps inside and under these flags are seven fine reproductions of "aquarelles" (watercolors) that were painted by Hitler during WWI. The paintings were originally done by the future Führer depicting Western Front battle scenes between 1914 and1917. They are shown in full color on high-quality art paper, each one protected by a sheet of parchment paper. The portfolio is in quite good condition. This was produced by a small company known as Avalon Books and we understand that this aquarelle set was a special project where they made an accurate reproduction of the original Mappe produced by Heinrich Hoffmann in Munich in 1935. There is an original copy in the Library of Congress, # 383460392. The one we offer is in fine condition. It was produced in the mid 1950s and is quite rare, today. The size is 9 x12 inches.

Inner NSDAP Award for a Woman (Item AH 31-12; NSD 22-16)

DESCRIPTION: Within the inner sanctum of the NSDAP in the early formation period long before the ascending to power that came with the "Machtergreifung," Hitler and his party were totally dependent upon private financial support. We know that he vastly admired women and they were known to love him even to the point of enchantment, and seemingly even more than many of his loyal male followers, and especially in those early days when he was generally considered a wild-eyed radical. Unfortunately, some of the women who actually got close to him became suicidal when the affairs were cut short and when he made it clearly known that his priority was Germany and that he was "married" to its ideals and destiny. Robert A. Johnston covers this thoroughly and competently in his book, Gun of Destiny. A bevy of prominent women offered and managed to introduce Hitler to Bavaria's high society. The main female contributor was Helen Bechstein, the wife of Edwin Bechstein who was the famed piano maker and multimillionaire with connections to other extremely wealthy personages who contributed to Hitler and the fledgling N.S. Party such as Elsa Bruckmann, the wife of a publishing magnate. Of course there was Winifred Wagner, Richard Wagner's English-born daughter-in-law. Among the woman with close ties to Hitler, Helene Hanfstaengl, played a special role, which included possibly saving his life (see Gun of Destiny by R. Johnston). Well known in Hitler's love life is the tragic incident with Geli Raubal, and finally the suicide of the loyal Eva at his side in the bunker in 1945. Most of the women in Hitler's court never wavered in their devotion to him and the Third Reich. In particular, Winifred Wagner was one of the ladies that continued to proudly proclaim their loyalty to Hitler and when interviewed after the war when some people denied their previous enthusiastic support for him, Frau Wagner proclaimed earnestly her steadfast admiration and love for the Führer and her true friend! Adolf Hitler certainly was the ladies' man.

The Award

The piece is comprised of a portrait depiction of Adolf Hitler in the forefront of the medallion. It's an obvious likeness of Adolf Hitler and to his side in the background there is an outline image of another person who likely is Reich president Paul von Hindenburg who in 1933 conferred the office of Chancellor on the future Führer. We think this piece is pre-1933 and was a token gift to women who were so magnanimous to the party and their leader when they needed it so much. The typical German eagle as used very early by the party is seen at the top and its claws clutch the silver-colored cross with its oak-leaf-motif trim the center of which features the portraits. The backside is quite plain in brass and right at the area of the eagle's head is a jump ring fitted for a chain suspension. The medallion is about 2¾ inches in length with the eagle's wingspan of about 2 inches. The piece is in fine condition with all the gold "gilt" intact. This is a handsome token of heartfelt thankfulness for loyalty to the destiny of the NSDAP.

PRICE: $850.00; Extremely rare!

 

Photograph of Hitler

Original Snapshot of Adolf Hitler (Item AH 31-13)

DESCRIPTION: We purchased this 4½ x 3½-inch photograph from a lady at a flea market in Stuttgart, Germany. It has the typical ragged edges of first-run 1930s edges of album photos of this type pictures as they developed. A later German collector put it in a photo album and wrote on its back the information that the flea market lady had told her and that was that this photo had been taken in 1937 by her mother who was security cleared and was able to get that close to achieve this great photo of (Unser Führer). The seller told her that the photo was taken on Hitler’s visit to the Hamburg Barracks of the SS-Germania Standarte. Close-up civilian photos of Der Führer are quite rare, especially this close. In the rear seats are Field Marshal Werner von Blomberg and Admiral Erich Raeder.
