Desk Eagle (Hoheitsabzeichen) in Bronze (Item NSD 16-4; WEHR 28-6)

DESCRIPTION: Among the various pieces of bronze sculpture that we were able to procure from the Preussische Bergwerks was this great-looking desk piece. For the narrative of how we managed to end up with these magnificent bronzes go to Item PARTEI 2-10. The firm produced many fine sculptures in the era of the Third Reich. They made figures both in bronze and iron and a famous artist Schmidt Ehmen’s bronze Nuremberg eagles are one of the most apparent and recognizable symbols of the Third Reich era. This eagle, quite different than the party rally eagle, is very dramatic, but very different in that it is a sculpture with outstretched wings, while the Reichsparteitag Adler is with folded wings. This may very well be a Schmidt Ehmen eagle although it is not signed. Ehmen seldom signed his work, figuring the quality of the pieces was his signature. Since this was found in the foundry that Ehmen used for his casting the chance is good that this eagle was one of his. Also from this foundry at Item SA 12-8 is our great little SA man. The eagle is in genuine bronze with a wingspan of 11 1/2 inches, and with the marble plinth he stands about 7 1/2 inches high. The plinth is a 6 x 3 inches and is about an inch deep. If you read about other pieces at PARTEI 2-10 you will know that the foundry worked in bronze sculpture, but did not stone cut plinths. This is done at another location in the area and we actually managed to find this firm and were able to have bases made just as they were in the Reich! They look great! The whole presentation is overly dramatic and awe inspiring. We don't know if it was the Wehrmacht officers’ desks or political leaders for whom they were originally meant because this eagle is similar in form as used by both. My own theory is that it is a diplomatic eagle might have been a decorative desk item for German consulates in various countries. The eagle has the look like the eagle on the sleeves and caps of Ribbentrop's diplomatic corps. The people today at the foundry didn't know. The older workers and managers were all gone. It was very fortunate for the collecting field that all this was secretly preserved by certain individuals.

Late breaking news May 17, 2009: Recently we were reading a book, the title of which is Hoffmann & Hitler by Rudolf Herz published in 1994. In this volume is a picture of H.Hoffmann's showroom  in Munich in 1938. It shows many of the pictures that were taken and published by this man who was Hitler's personal photographer. And there on the table with the portraits is a very "familiar piece" -- the amusing part is that one of Hoffmann's employees had set the eagle on the table backwards. It probably was well that the Fuhrer did not come visiting that day! The other interesting point that bears some research is this --did Hoffmann have something to do with the design of this eagle? Otherwise why would it be displayed there among items merchandised by his company?  This was a salesroom devoted only to Hoffmann's works.

PRICE: $1,250.00; absolutely “great” looking re-creation of the original that we had.

Rare! Deutschen Christian Bread Plate, 1942 (Item NSD 16-6; AHN 4-6)

DESCRIPTION: This is a real rarity: a bread plate probably for holding the host in the communion ceremony in the Deutsche Christian Church. The church integrated the teaching and doctrine of the traditional Protestant church, Evangelical, and Lutheran, but like Martin Luther, this church stood against the corruption of the inner church’s conceptions. Luther had nailed 99 theses on the cathedral door at Wittenberg and his life afterwards focused on the grace of God and unending disputes with the Vatican. He also saw the Jews as a corrupting influence in true religious piety and the following of Jesus Christ. He felt the Jews failed to heed his warning of eternal damnation and even encouraged congregations to drive them out and burn their synagogues. He called them by the term “synagogues of Satan.” The Deutsche Christian Church integrated and redefined traditional Christianity to include and align with the ideology of the Third Reich, which they saw as a God-sent gift to the German people. The doctrines of the Deutsche Christian Church were meant to replace centuries-old doctrine. Christ was reinterpreted as an Aryan of the highest order; a warrior come to earth to lead his people out of the way of sin that had become their wont. St. Paul was seen as an introverted Jew whose writings Judized Christian thought in an unhealthy way. They believed that that which is weak is inferior and not allowed because Paul teaches in the epistles the putting away of “self.” Paul was seen as having an inferiority complex and this was detrimental to the religious faith of the German people. Concept of the cross and sacrifice are integrated with the concept of “struggle.” They believed that Germans were born to struggle; the battles, earthly and divine, were reinterpreted in terms of “Kulturkampf” The German Christian Church was formed in 1932. They had 600,000 members. This degree of influence enabled them to call in April 1933 for a National Socialist-controlled “Reich Church” to replace the federal statutes of the Evangelical Church; the organization was led by Pastor Ludwig Müller. They supported the movement of the NS Party platform for a positive Christianity. They rallied for the removal of the Jewish Old Testament from the Bible. Their symbol was a traditional Christian cross with a hooked cross (swastika) in the middle and the group’s initials were ‘DC.’ Although it lost much influence after 1939, it still existed to the end of the war and there are committed adherents to it even today. The bread plate is in oak, the holy wood of the Teutonic people. The size is 13 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. The letters cut around the edges are: “Gib uns Heute Unser [Täeglich] Brot,” “Give us this day, our daily bread.” *The normal spelling of “Daily” in German is “Täglich.” On the plaque we see it spelled “Täeglich,” which is an ancient colloquialism. The center, of course, is carved by hand also and has the cross with sun-wheel swastika and the cross. In addition it has the ‘DC’ for ‘Deutsches Christian’ and the date of 1942. This is possibly one of the rarest and historically important pieces we have ever offered. This is an important and beautiful object of folk art. The letters around the edge are not added; they were actually carved all out of the very same piece of oak. This is the incredible work of a master carver.

Large Bronze Medal of the Japanese-German Institute of Culture (Item NSD 16-7; JAPAN 2-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is a beautiful bronze medal from 1937 commemorating the 10 years of the Japanisch-Deutsches Kultur-Institut. This was the organization set up for promoting friendship and cooperation between Germany and Japan. It has the Berlin Brandenburg Gate on its obverse surmounted with a swastika and the words “Den Helfern im Volkischen Austausch,” “The Helpers in the Folk Exchange.” This would mean that this was a special medal for presentation to those volunteers and academically trained professional people who had helped in this effort. On the obverse there is a depiction of the Japanese Imperial Palace with the Meganebashi Bridge in the foreground and presumably the same message in Japanese is printed around the edges. The rising sun is shown where the swastika is on the obverse side. The medal, or nonportable award, is in solid bronze and quite heavy. It measures about 4 inches in diameter and is in mint condition. The institute was established in 1927 and in 1930, 576 Japanese stayed in Germany of whom 60 percent were scholars and the institute promoted academic exchanges influenced by the concepts of geopolitics and panasianism. All sorts of special social meetings between Japanese and Germans were actively promoted. Various NS Party functionaries and organized groups among the NS organizations were encouraged to become involved with the agenda of the institute and especially the Hitler Youth. Both the HJ and BDM were rather deeply engrossed with the various projects of the group. NS-uniformed people were seen all through Berlin dining with, walking with, and engaged otherwise with Japanese leaders and students. Almost all Japanese who came to Germany learned practical German speaking at the institute during the first 2 to 6 months of their stay. A constant visitor and lecturer at the institute was Baron Hiroshi Oshima, who was a general in the Imperial Japanese Army and ambassador to NS Germany prior to WWII and all during the war. Oshima was said to be more Nazi than the Nazis; a reference that he proudly wore. He never wavered in his confidence that Germany would emerge victorious and in those last desperate years (1944-1945) he was often speaking before assembled crowds of servicemen whom he tried to instill with his patriotism and fervor; he was truly the Asiatic Goebbels. The institute did much in the way of disseminating propaganda that was much needed by the leaders of the Reich. One of the leading lecturers at the institute was Professor Karl Haushofer, a man who entered academia with the aim of restoring and regenerating Germany, and he was a complete Orientalphile majoring in the knowledge of Japanese art and culture. In 1908 the army (he was a general) sent him to Tokyo to study the Japanese Army. He was greeted by the Japanese emperor and got to know many important people in politics and the armed forces. He later was very instrumental in linking Japan to the axis powers acting in accordance with the theories of his book Geopolitics of the Pacific Ocean. The many facets of the institute included the promotion of the Japanischer Besuchs-und Jugend Austausch, (the youth exchange visits between Germany and Japan in 1938 and 1940). There was a great article about these exchanges between Hitler, youth delegations, and Japanese counterparts in the fall issue of “Military Advisor” by William P.B.R. Saris. The name of the article is “German Japanese Youth Exchange Badges.” We have used a few of the pictures that he provided here in our pictorials. We do not have any of the badges he shows, but would certainly be interested in obtaining any that could be offered. The bronze medal that we offer here is one of the most desirable of the German-Japanese Institute items ever offered and certainly would be a great culture item to add to an important collection of WWII items.

N.S. German Eagle (Item NSD 16-10)

DESCRIPTION: This has to be one of the most sought after relics of the Third Reich. It has been referred to as the Box Car Eagle or Mail Eagle. I am of the opinion that it was used in several places within various N.S. Party Instillations. It is probably the single most profound display of the power and majesty of the system that history calls the 3rd German Reich. Nothing except possibly a  Deutschland Erwache standard is more indicative of the spirit of the Hitler Era. These Eagles when found command huge prices but Germania International, LLC in its efforts to find and offer such exciting memorabilia will offer this fine example for a decent affordable price. This is a 100% original piece not one of the copies that are seen on other sites today. The way to tell is that the copies are invariably flat on the back where the originals have four good  (lugs) that would be used for mounting. Also there are letters and numbers that indicate the maker clearly shown on the back. The copies do not measure up in that regard either and when they have such letters they are usually faded out or washed out in the casting process. Also the detail of the copies is clearly inferior to the original. These Eagles come in two sizes. This is the smaller one but still quite large with a wing span of 2 ft across and it measures 13 ½ inches high from the bottom of the swastika to the top of the bird’s head. They are always in cast aluminum and made by the LOK Company of Berlin. This one has also a logo with a LS interconnected in a circle. This indeed has to be the most dramatic looking and important pieces of WWII History.  We have seen one or two at twice as much at the Max Show and the Show of Shows at Louisville. They are extremely rare!

Book: "Der Eweige Jude" (The Eternal Jew) (Item NSD 16-14)

 I will make no comments (pro or con) about this book since I would like to visit Germany some day (Paul Pool, Germania).
DESCRIPTION:  If you understand the above statement in the light of the world situation today, well that is good and wise! The book is not written by me it is an actual period volume and whatever it conveys as its inherent message must be viewed as the nature of the thinking in Europe in those times. The book is soft cover and is the full measure of anti-Semitism in pictures. The pictures are self explanatory from whatever historical perspective one views it. The book was published by the central committee of the NSDAP possibly in 1934. It is not in good shape but is extremely rare. The covers are a bit torn here and there and the binding is reinforced with mailing tape. But the book is holding together well and is a worthwhile collectable volume of a publication that copies of which for the most part burned after the war. Inside are many pictures in the 128 pages of Jewish gentlemen and Jewish ladies both commoners and important politicians and leaders. They are not always posed in their best views but then that is photography,  isn’t it? Charlie Chaplin, N.Y. Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, Albert Weinstein, Bruno Walter, Arthur Rubenstein, Gustav Mahler, and other prominent Jewish folks are featured. Statesmen are featured along with criminals, bankers, actors, politicians etc. Jewish ceremonies are shown, early Communist butchers and radicals who just happened to be Jewish are shown (for example Leon Trotsky, Kurt Eisner and Paul Axelrod plus Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Marx share featured spotlights). It is essentially a “Who’s who” of the Jewish world that the Germans thought were affecting their world at an alarming and dangerous rate. Now that was their view and whether you historically agree or not is up to you as long as you stay in the U.S. (for now!). The cover has the famous picture of a gentleman who appears to be of the Yiddish persuasion and beside him is the map of Germany with the Communist logo in red upon its face and in his right hand are coins ( 20 pieces of silver?) and in his left is a whip -- whatever all this alludes to will be in the perception of the viewer. In any case, regardless of the slightly distressed condition, this is a very rare publication. Certainly it should be preserved.
 
PRICE: $295.00 (worth 3 times that amount were it in much better condition)

 

Swastika Armband

N.S. Armband of the Printed Variety (Item NSD 16-15)

DESCRIPTION: This is quite a nice NSDAP (Nazi) armband 100% genuine. It is the type worn by members of the Party on a shirt rather than the tunic type.  So, therefore, it is printed and the swastika is not separately sewn to the red field. It measures 6 ½ inches folded twice that long if it were opened up full length.  Machine stitched hem top and bottom. The piece is clean and in top condition and real.

PRICE: $150.00

 

NSDAP Long Service Medal
NSDAP Long Service Medal

NSDAP Long Service Medal
“Dienstauszeichnungen Der NSDAP”
(Item NSD 16-16)

DESCRIPTION: On 2 April, 1939, Adolf Hitler ordered the institution of long service awards for qualified Party member’s both male and female. The first awards were made on 30 Jan. 1940. Service time with the party was counted from February 1925 with the time from that date to 30 January 1933 counting double in recognition of the “Kampfzeit” (time of struggle) by members of the old guard. Accumulated service time had to be unbroken with certain military exceptions including service against the Bolsheviks during the period 1936 to 1939 (“The Spanish Civil War” and military service after September 1939). The awards came in three classes and the 1st and 2nd class is shown elsewhere on our pages. This one that we offer here is the 3rd class. The front bears the national Eagle of the Reich in the center of an “Ordenskreuz” with rays projecting between the arms, the reverse repeats this design. However, instead of the National emblem, the inscription “True for Fuhrer und Volk “ loyalty to leader and people is inscribed within the wreath.  Nice condition, could use polishing (we don’t touch them!). Full ribbon with pinning device.
