 Period Model of a WWI Biplane (Item KTOYS 1-3)

DESCRIPTION:  This is an incredible model of a WWI Fokker biplane similar to the Fokker Dr.I flown by the Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen; the differences being that Richthofen's famous aircraft was a triplane, and had no observer or copilot cockpit. The Fokker Dr.I had a very unusual powerplant (by today's standard); it is called a rotary engine. The rotary engine (not the pistonless engine of recent innnovation) comprised a stationary crankshaft attached directly to the airframe with the entire crankcase and its attached cylinders rotating around it as a unit in operation. Of course, the propeller is attached to that unit and spins with it thus powering the aircraft. This model was created with various parts given to a WWII German prisoner of war at Fort McCoy POW camp in Wisconsin. He put it together for a generous and kindly guard as a token of friendship. Note the front part where the propeller is missing. This is so realistic, yet made from machine screws; large machine washers make the pilot's and copilot's seats. All other parts are from machine-room parts and scraps. It is very interesting and a great-looking toy from the great conflict.

 Hungarian Hussar Doll (Item KTOY 1-4)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a great memento of the pre-WWI Austro-Hungarian Empire and the court of Franz Joseph. This doll was the type not only enjoyed by children who loved the martial splendor, but collected by the adult populace, as well, and they were displayed in the corners of couches and in knick-knack cupboards from Budapest to Vienna. Quite colorful in his blue tunic and red trousers this happy fellow is resplendent with his shiny boots and jaunty cap. He is a large doll measuring 26 to 27 inches high. He proudly wears his curved saber and his bright-blue eyes are separately inserted as is his flash of pearly teeth. His condition for being over 100 years old is better than yours and mine will be when we are of that age. His hands and arms are constructed from a leather-type material and look and feel quite real. This is a dashing young cavalry trooper ready for the parade or Viennese ballroom.

Metal Figure of “Der Alte Fritz (Item KTOY 1-5; FRED 3-6)

DESCRIPTION: This equestrian figure of the Prussian Kaiser, Frederick the Great, is quite dramatic in fine detail and is most definitely from the 1890s. It depicts the king mounted for battle on his white steed. His ever-present walking stick that served as his baton is clutched in his right hand. The reins of the horse are separately affixed. The famous blue, Prussian tunic is decorated with the Order of the Black Eagle, and his sword is by his side. All in all, this is one great 1890s figure. It stands about 4 3/4 inches high to the top of his three-cornered hat and measures about 3 3/4 inches from the horse’s snout to his tail. For such an early figure, it’s in remarkably good condition with all paint original. There are no repairs and it stands firmly upon the four hooves.

PRICE: $225.00; an 1890s treasure

Group of Toy or Model Soldiers (Item KTOY 1-6; WEHR 24-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great group of model soldiers that might or might not have been toys. We are not sure of when they were made, but they are old. They could be from the post-WWI period all the way up into the 1930s. They are the various soldier types from Frederick the Great’s army up to the Franco-Prussian War, Hussars grenadiers, bandsman, and an Uhlan, a spike-helmet-wearing Landser, and the young Frederick himself on horseback. The figures bear no markings as to manufacturer. Each is generally about 5 inches tall. The soldiers seem to be some sort of composition material not unlike the elastolin figures. They look to be out of a mold, but then hand painted. They are truly great examples of the early German toymaker’s art. The group displayed all together is very impressive, indeed. Imagine these handsome figures on display in your home or office. This is a great grouping, indeed, and is sold as a group.

PRICE: $485.00; for all

Kaiser Staff Car (Item KTOY 1-7; WILHELM 8-11)

DESCRIPTION: We at Germania try always to handle only 100-percent-original items, but once in a while there comes along an item that thrills us for its beauty. This is a new but accurate portrayal of historically important events, or equally important items of connected importance to our agenda of bringing you the best! So when we saw an opportunity to offer this wonderful Kaiser Wilhelm staff car we just couldn’t let it go by. The intense detail is amazing in this little auto model. It’s a handsome open-topped automobile and it’s complete with military driver and military police bodyguard. It absolutely is of the highest quality available. It is die cast and the length of the car is 6 inches. Along with this group mentioned we offer the Kaiser’s Aide de Camp, the Crown Prince “Little Willie.” He is dressed as an honorary colonel of the Lifeguard Cavalry Regiment. There is also a standing German rifleman who looks like he is about to be inspected or on guard duty and last, but certainly not least, Kaiser Wilhelm dressed immaculately in his field marshal’s uniform surveying his troops.

Child’s Hussar Perzmütze or Busby (First Leib Hussar) (Item KTOY 1-8; KHELMET 2-9)

DESCRIPTION:This is an extremely rare child's uniform piece. This distinctive piece of imperial headgear in the original form was the instantly recognizable mark of the elite First Hussars or Totenkopfhussaren (Death's Head Hussars Leib Regiment). This regiment struck fear into the hearts of the enemy in many battles. This was a light cavalry unit that dressed in elegant uniforms resplendent in braided and fur-trimmed jackets. The Hussars were mounted on the swiftest horses in the army. The daring charges of the Prussian Hussars became legendary. They were the bravest and most dashing! This Leib regiment stood out above the others. It dressed in black and took as its badge a skull. This symbolized to them the adage “death or glory.” They were famous for their bravery in numerous battles. They captured the eagle standard of the elite French 55th Line Infantry Regiment at the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. We should remember that the fiery Prussian Marshal Blucher (Marshal Vorwarts!) himself started his career as a Hussar officer, but the most famous of all the Death's Head Hussars of Germany was General Field Marshal Machensen. See our writings on him at KCLOTH 1-17. The field marshal was the most noble of the noble! The Busbee we offer here is not a full-sized service example, but a child's costume item that is almost more rare than the adult Busby. The Hussars were so admired that it was only natural that bronze statues, dramatic paintings, woodcuts, porcelains, etc., were found all through the time of the kings and Kaisers. Often, ladies who were related to royalty were seen posed in such uniforms. The Hussar officers were usually from the families of the royals or at least wealthy landed gentry. The child who wore the Totenkopf Hussar uniform was generally the chief of the costume party. Often it was the sons of the Hussars that were from time to time dressed up thusly for photographs. This Busby is remarkably accurate, although merely a look-alike. The skull is a bit different, but otherwise it is pretty much like the original’s to include the motto in the scroll that proclaims “With God for Kaiser and Fatherland” (“Mit Gott für Kaiser und Vaterland”). It is made from imitation fur and has a liner of leather. The condition is excellent and it is really a super little memento of the glory that was Wilhelmesque Germany: a time of culture awareness and refinement, but also a time of Teutonic power and discipline. “Der Kaiser ruft und wir folgen.”

Boy’s Military Tunic Made to Scale (Item KTOY 1-9; WWI 10-4; KMISC 2-3)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great, little uniform tunic probably ordered to be tailored by a proud father who was himself a soldier of the Kaiser Wilhelm I or Wilhelm II era. We are not quite sure of the exact period. We do believe that because of the type of the numerals on the shoulder boards that the regiment that it is representative of is a Prussian artillery regiment probably the King of Prussia Volunteer Corps (von Lützowiches), but we also reserve the secondary opinion that it could be an Uhlan regiment. In any case, it’s a period piece in good condition except for one small tear in the fabric at the back of one sleeve about an inch long. All the military copper-colored buttons are intact and present. The gold-bullion trim sets off the blue fabric making this a very sharp little tunic. I’m sure the little-guy soldier who wore this made his dad as proud as a peacock as he marched back and forth across the living room to the tune of “Prussia’s Gloria” played on the phonograph player. This is truly a great and sentimental treasure of yesteryear.

Child’s (Third Reich) Tin Helmet (Item KTOY 1-10 & WEHR 32-9)

DESCRIPTION: Here is a helmet rarer than any issue stalhelm of the Second World War.  Yes, of course a Waffen SS helmet would bring much more in value than this little gem, but still this Lilliputian helmet is much more scarce by far!  German soldiers were proud of their service to the Fatherland and their little boys were equally proud of their dads. And of course there is the national inclination of male children to play at being the soldier so just as in other lands the German boy was infatuated by toy guns, swords, and the eternal ‘helmet’.  The one we feature here is of the transitional style   That is to say the helmets of the 1917 WWI style where the lugs protrude from the sides above the decals.  Besides being air vents these lugs were utilized in the real helmets as fastening devices for the protective machine gunners face shield. Everything about the little helmet is accurate even the precise color of the 1935-1940 pieces. The eagle decal is the full size just like the full size issue helmets of Das Heers (Army). But the national color decal is small.  This might indicate that the decal with the national eagle might have been a replacement by possibly a patriotically august father who loved the proud Wehrmacht symbol. The liner inside is as it would be, the chin strap was torn away at some time in its history but it is there but precariously holding on.  The size is naturally small. It has some small dents and abrasions but holding well. I would call it in great shape and certainly rare.

Set of Fantastic Statues of Kaiser Wilhelm 2 and Field Marshal Hindenburg (Item KTOY 1-11; KSTATUE 5-17; WWI 12-16)

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful almost beyond belief! Here is a grouping of the most famous luminaries of the WW-I period. They are constructed in terracotta material and hand painted to true perfection and historic accuracy as to uniforms, medals, etc. These are period pieces from Imperial Germany and NOT Chinese-made toys that flood the market today. These two heroic figures are genuinely 100 years old, at least! They are so realistic looking that they practically breathe. The life-like quality of these figures could never be captured in bronze or metal of any kind. The faces are like fine portraits. The detail is so great that even the spurs on their boots are still there. (See our picture). It is nothing short of incredible that they survived this long in the pristine condition that they are in. (They are perfect!) Just imagine these pieces standing erect in the midst of your helmet collection. We can really say that these two figures are the finest depictions in artistic creativity we have ever seen (worldwide). Probably no bronze, in fact, no painting can be more realistic than these two items for beauty and historical significance. They could NEVER be duplicated today.
