 Patriotic Bedspread and Pillowcases (Item KCLOTH 2-1; WILHELM 8-12)

DESCRIPTION: Here is something great when it comes to unusual and beautiful. It is a bedspread and matching pillowcases that once graced the bedchamber of some landsman or Frau, who was ultrapatriotic to the Fatherland. The bedspread is 5 feet long by 68 inches wide, and the two matching pillowcases measure 18 x 13 inches each. The Prussian eagle and a bust patriot of Kaiser Wilhelm are shown throughout the checkerboard pattern. It is absolutely stunning and in beautiful shape. Imagine your Germanophile bedroom setting with your bed made up with these absolutely beautiful household appurtenances. This is Teutonic greatness personified.

PRICE: $495.00; for the set

 Small Imperial Flag in Beautiful Condition (Item KCLOTH 2-2)

DESCRIPTION: Here is an absolutely original Reichskriegsfahne which measures 24 x 14 inches. This size was generally the type that was carried by German officers of the Imperial Navy or Army, and often decorated the walls behind their field desks as a sign of patriotism and service to the Reich. This is made of the same material, linen, as the large versions are. The edge is of coarse bunting with rope. The condition is perfect and the size is ideal for the collector who just does not have the room for one of the 12- to 14-foot service flags. This we consider a real honey of a flag; so much in demand, but seldom found on this size. Again, this is 100-percent original and not one of those cheap copies that are showing up. You will treasure this little war flag as a beautiful memento of the heroic time. By the way, this was also the size carried by airmen and pilots and sported on airplanes in different positions when on the airfield for review.

PRICE: SOLD

 Table Doily Depicting the Red Eagle of the Tirol (Item KCLOTH 2-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful hand-embroidered doily depicting the red eagle (Rotesadler) of the German Tirol—the mountainous region in southern Germany. It’s about 8 inches in diameter with a fancy lace border. It is crafted in linen while the eagle is produced by hand embroidery with cotton thread. It dates probably in the 1890s up to possible 1930 or 1950. It’s just a beautiful representative piece of Imperial majestic heraldry.

PRICE: $125.00

Veterans’ Standard Krieger Verein “Prinz Heinrich von Preussen” (Item KCLOTH 2-4; VETS 2-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very beautiful veterans’ standard from Barkelsbv v. Umgegend which is probably a small town but the veteran that owned it was a sponsor of the regiment named after Prince Heinrich of Prussia. Heinrich was Kaiser Wilhelm’s brother and it surely must have been an illustrious regiment to bear a name such as this. It was the elite regiments that bore the names of the royals. The obverse side has the Prussian eagle as its central theme and in the corners are the battle honors of the regiment. Its accomplishments at that point date from the Franco-Prussian War. It depicts victories at Orleans, Paris, Sedan, and Metz. All these battles mentioned bring forth memories to the military historian of deed victorious and battle glorious and of course this is why these standards were of such importance to the regiment’s veterans and they rallied around them at every reunion and warrior-day parade. When not before marching vets the standards hung in a place of honor in the veterans’ hall. This flag measures 53 x 46 inches and of course it shows some fraying after close to 100 years of the constant rugged use in the ceremonies of gallantry that were constantly a part of Germanic military heritage. The workmanship is superb and typical of the labors of love demonstrated by the ladies of the Verein who undertook the difficult task of making these standards by hand. The reverse of the piece shows the figure of “Germania” (is that why we think so much of it?). She, of course, is the spirit of the German lands as she stands along the Rhine with the uplifted Prussian crown. She also clutches the sword of the Germanic empire; oak leaves surround her symbolizing the strength of the mighty oak! Above her is a scroll with the words: “Gehorsam, Treue, Tapferkeit,” “Obedience, Loyalty, Courage.” Underneath is says: “Des Deutschen Kriegers Ehrenkleid,” “The German fighters’ honorable cloak.” Germania has the Prussian eagle embroidered on her bosom and she sits on the lion-motif throne. This is a rare piece of Teutonic splendor from a better age; an age of Imperial glory, a refined age, an age of cultural excellence, an age personified by this visage of GERMANIA.

PRICE:   $2,900.00

A Magnificent Little War Flag (Reichskriegsfahne) (Item KCLOTH 2-5 & VETS 2-11)
DESCRIPTION: Seldom do you ever see these little gems available. It measures two feet by 13 inches and it is in perfect condition with no moth holes even though it is more than 80 yrs old or older. It has the reinforced bunting border with the rope attachment. It has no stains at all (unusual). The piece could be from the Imperial Period 1914-1918 or it could be a veteran's piece produced from 1918-1940 or so. It is a flag, not a pennant; the usage of which we are not sure, but this is a real little charmer.

A Magnificent Tapestry Style Bavarian Casket Cover for an Officer (Item KCLOTH 2-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is absolutely beautiful yet quite somber. It is a casket cover that was used in the military final send-off of a Bavarian officer. It is in the tradition of the velvet pillows used at the funerals of German soldiers from ancient times right up to today. The pillow is carried with the man’s medals and other decorations as the coffin is borne to the grave site. With the Bavarian army this is of course done in that manner as well but in addition a funerary box cover is placed on the casket as well with the man’s decorations depicted in applied boulion weave. Just like the company standards or the veterans flags. This is one is particularly beautiful in its presentation and has the Bavarian Crown at the top executed in the finest boulion detail. Under this is a grouping of medals that had been won by the deceased. They are shown on the typically shaped Bavarian style shield -- the shield shaped like the jousting shield of medieval tournaments. This is sectioned off into four segments each with a separate depiction of the award achieved during the man’s military career -- at the left top the 1st Class Ion Cross and below it is the military 1866 campaign cross from the seven weeks war between Prussia and Austria. Ludwig II preferred neutrality but reluctantly supported Austria and certain Bavarian troops actually engaged in combat, but not officially. But they were resoundingly defeated by the Prussian General Von Falkenstein, and this departed warrior was obviously one of the officers in that ill-fated campaign. To the right on the top is Bavarian military Merit Cross established on July 19, 1866. It was the Kingdom,s main decoration for bravery and military merit for non-commissioned officers. Below this is the Service Medal for Military participation in the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian war. So, this man was a soldier brave!  And his comrades honored him through his military career and now he was being highly honored in his passing. The words “Mit Gott for Konig II” means with God for the Kaiser II. This was Kaiser Wilhelm II, Prussian King and Emperor of all the German states, including of course Bavaria. The brocade oak leaves and acorns and the laurel leaves are in the very finest of detail as are all the other decorative trappings. This is an utterly fantastic piece and surely this man was very highly thought of by the men of his division or regiment to invest in a funerary cover as elaborate and gorgeous as this one. It is nothing short of spectacular. It measures about 35 inches across the bottom and a you can see it tapers into a pyramid shape on its way to the uppermost portion where the crown is seen. We have never seen such tight boullion work. This is simply a masterpiece of the flag maker’s skill. A great museum item., and a fitting tribute to the spirit of the German officer.

Imperial Battle Flag (Item KCLOTH 2-7 & FLAG 3-1 & WWI 12-6)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a specimen in nearly mint condition of the Kaiserreich battle flag. We are not sure if it was manufactured in the period leading to or during the First World War. It could have been produced in the 1930's or 1940's. The Veterans Associations used this ensign in all their parades and ceremonies. The condition is great and it has the label of the flag maker on its rope edge. It is a great size for the collector (53" x 31") and is a very dramatic looking flag. It has the rope running through the left side (stitched on) with the loop and tie lanyard all there. The Banner Fahne Fabrik was known to make the finest in flags and standards in the Imperial era and in the Third Reich (they made the best!)

PRICE: SOLD

Banner (Streamer) from the Royal Bavarian Flying Corps (Fliegertruppe) (Item LUFT 22-10: KCLOTH 2-9)

DESCRIPTION: This piece is constructed of silk with gilded letters and décor. In the long stretch of the streamer it says translated: “Donated by the Grandfather’s Association”. This donation was more than likely the organizational flag or standard of the Bavarian Flying Corps known as the Ortsgruppe” (Home Guard) of the Bayerische Fliegertruppe (Bavarian Flying Troops) based at the German city of Freising. The flag was presented May 29, 1924, by the Old Veterans’ Association. Freising is near Munich and the Fliegertruppe did its flying in and out of Munich’s airport. The piece is in good shape with the wear one would expect with a relic that is more than 90 years old. The coat of arms of the Fliegertruppe is seen at the end of the streamer and it incorporates a bear surmounted by the Bavarian colors of blue and white mixed stripes with oak leaves and acorns. The streamer is in good shape and is a truly rare and historically important piece of German aviation history.

Imperial Kriegsfahne (The Kaiserreich War Flag) (Item LUFT 22-11)

DESCRIPTION: This ensign is much scarcer than the war flag of the Third Reich (Kriegsflagge). We have had many of the latter, but few of the WWI flags, especially of this size desired by collectors. The flag is about 32 x 19 inches. It has quite a few small moth holes, but since it is well over 100 years old, I would say it probably should! The bunting edge has the required lanyard and loop. The Iron Cross of course is in the upper-left corner and the Imperial Prussian war eagle with his particularly angry countenance is in the center. I would have to say the moth holes are to be expected and because of the rarity of the flag, they really will not detract for the serious collector. This size flag was used on the landing craft that delivered marine ground fighting units to their combat zones. They were also used by Freikorps troops who, in the 1920s, were fighting the communists who were trying to take over the fatherland. Veterans groups also used them, and the earliest formations of the NSDAP were often seen using this Kriegsflagge at parade functions. Again, I must say this flag is extremely rare. The price may seem high, but remember, this is a 100-percent original example of a flag seldom seen.

PRICE: $675.00
