    BAVARIA – PLATE – COMMEMORATING MARTIN LUTHER’S 400TH ANNIVERSARY – ROSENTHAL

    SKU: 18-500

    $175.00

    PLATE – BAVARIA – COMMEMORATING MARTIN LUTHER’S 400TH ANNIVERSARY – ROSENTHAL Martin Luther (1483-1546) was the famous Protestant reformer for whom the Lutheran Church is named. He published his famous Ninety-five Theses in 1517, and sparked the Protestant Reformation. Today we are offering a handsome plate from the well-known Bavarian porcelain manufacturing company Rosenthal that celebrates the 400th Anniversary of the Ninety-Five Theses’ publication. The plate measures 8 1/2” in diameter and features Luther’s likeness along with the dates 1517 and 1917 in blue on a white background. The plate’s reverse features Rosenthal’s hallmark, as well as a hanger from which the plate could be hung on a wall. It is a very fine, one-hundred-year-old presentation.

  • VETERAN’S STEIN - BRAUNSCHWEIG - HUSAREN-REGIMENT NR 17

    BRAUNSCHWEIG – VETERAN’S STEIN – HUSAREN-REGIMENT NR 17

    SKU: 18-441

    $1,050.00

    VETERAN’S STEIN – BRAUNSCHWEIG – HUSAREN-REGIMENT NR 17. Braunschweig, referred to as Brunswick by the English, was a small Duchy that served as an important trade center throughout much of Germany’s earlier history. Braunschweig’s Herzog Friedrich Wilhelm (1771-1815), whose father was a Prussian Generalfeldmarschall, participated in the 1806 Battle of Jena, which was a major defeat of Prussia by Napoleon Bonaparte. Friedrich Wilhelm’s father was killed in the battle, and Braunschweig was taken over by France. Friedrich Wilhelm then fled to England in order to begin raising troops. After he had raised about 2,200 men, Friedrich Wilhelm returned to fight against Napoleon in 1809 with England’s Duke of Wellington. Friedrich Wilhelm formed both a Hussar Regiment and an Infanterie Regiment from his recruits. [The Hussar Regiment eventually became Husaren-Regiment Nr 17, while the Infanterie Regiment became Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92. Both regiments eventually became famous for wearing the infamous Totenkopf (Death’s Head) on their headdresses. They also retained their black “mourning” uniforms until the switch to feldgrau in WW I]. Friedrich Wilhelm’s men became known as the “Black Brunswickers” because they wore black uniforms as a sign of mourning for their homeland’s takeover by France. Friedrich Wilhelm soon became known as the “Black Duke.” Although his troops were decimated in Spain and Portugal, the Black Duke refused to give up and refitted his regiments. When Napoleon escaped from his exile to Elba in 1815, Friedrich Wilhelm joined the allied forces rallying once more under Wellington’s command. This ultimately led to Bonaparte’s…

There is repaired damage to the cup as at some point it shattered in 3-4 pieces. It has been nicely repaired and the damage is more noticeable in the interior than the exterior. It is also marked for Rosenthal. While a pity that this damage took place the pricing reflects the fault.

    GERMANY – INK WELL – BIEDERMAIER PERIOD

    SKU: 18-57

    $195.00

    This is a unique ink well from the Biedermaier period, which was from approximately 1815-1858. The inkwell begins with a burled style of wood base. Mounted on the wood base are small metal “buttons.” Attached to the base is a metal, saucer-like arrangement where spilled ink, pen nibs, paper clips, etc. might be placed. A small glass bottle for the ink is then attached to this area. The stopper for the ink bottle is of the same design as the base, with the inclusion of a floral motif. All is of very fine quality and condition. For you folks who enjoy using a fountain pen (as I do), this would be a great desk piece that could be filled with the ink of your choice. It would make a handsome addition to a desk without ink, as well.

  • GERMANY - PATRIOTIC SERVING TRAY - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    GERMANY – PATRIOTIC SERVING TRAY

    SKU: 18-193

    $275.00

    This tray is most interesting. Its central motif shows Germany oldest general (Generalfeldmarschall, actually) of WW I, Graf von Haesler. This man, who was a cavalrymen, came from the Uhlans. He served Germany in four wars, in 1864, 1866, 1870, and in WW I. This serving tray has a wooden frame and wooden handles with brass trim. It measures 12 ½” x 7 7/8.” In the center under glass is a very colorful patriotic rendition of von Haesler with flags, banners, etc. Von Haesler is dressed in the feldgrau uniform of a Generalfeldmarschall. He is superimposed over an Iron Cross with the date 1914. In looking at this, I have come to the conclusion that this was at one time the lid of a cigar box. It was probably used to house fine Havana cigars! Today it can serve as a wonderful serving tray to hold your drinks when served at cocktail hour, or for any other purpose. Or, it would look neat on its own!

  • GERMANY - PLATE - MILITARY THEMES FROM CHILD’S VIEWPOINT - KPM - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    GERMANY – PLATE – MILITARY THEMES FROM CHILD’S VIEWPOINT – KPM

    SKU: 18-321

    $395.00

    This is an interesting plate, which comes from the noted Prussian porcelain firm, KPM. KPM was located in Berlin and served every Prussian King and Kaiser from Frederick the Great onward. By the time KPM was serving Kaiser Wilhelm II, they were producing large numbers (in terms of place settings) of tableware and in multiple patterns. As if it were not enough that they produced tableware for all the various castles wherein the Kaiser entertained, they also produced tableware for the Kaiser’s ships. Tableware had to be provided for the S.M.S. Deutschland (the ship he sailed on when he was with the fleet) and the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern (his primary yacht). This gives you just a hint of the quantity, not to mention the quality of the items that KPM produced. They did other work aside from the royal family (this included the Kaiserin, the Kaiser’s children, and other Princes of the House of Hohenzollern). The plate measures 7 3/4” in diameter. It is multicolored and has an angel as the central motif. Around the angel are items that appeal to children, although most are of a military nature. One sees a teddy bear wearing a busby. An airplane appears, as well as a cannon and a drum. Even a zeppelin shows up. The plate’s obverse is in excellent condition. As we examine the reverse, we see the hallmarking for KPM. Also a chip is present here, which, while unfortunate, does not detract from the overall presentation of the plate.

    GERMANY – SERVING TRAY – SILVERED WITH MIRRORED BASE

    SKU: 18-204

    $125.00

    Life in Imperial Germany was much more formal than ours. Entertaining was more elaborate. This is obvious from the glassware, tableware, etc. used at the time. {For further examples of the ornate and delightful pieces available, visit our PATRIOTIC TABLEWARE MERCHANDISE PAGE. This silvered tray measures 14″ in diameter and is quite large. It rests on three small balled “feet.” The edges have an intricate cutout design that is quite attractive. The center of the serving tray is mirrored and silvered. This makes for an interesting effect. However from age and use the mirror is flaking in places. Its coating is no longer complete. The tray is still sturdy. If one put some silver polish on this, it could look amazing. Or, one can enjoy its patina as is.

  • GERMANY - WALL PLAQUE - "VERDUN 1916" - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    GERMANY – WALL PLAQUE – “VERDUN 1916”

    SKU: 12-796

    $150.00

    This is a very touching and poignant reminder of the Great War. It is a wooden wall plaque bearing the legend “Verdun 1916.” The two WW I battles that most remind us of its ultimate futility are Verdun and the Somme. Many other battles were equally gruesome and heartbreaking, but these two battles’ geographic and chronological proximity geometrically increases their significance. Nearly five million men were committed as combatants in the two battles, which resulted in nearly two million causalities. The Battle of Verdun lasted from 21 February to 18 December 1916. The Battle of the Somme lasted from 1 July to 18 November 1916. The primary German commander at Verdun was Prussia’s Kronprinz Wilhelm, while Kronprinz Rupprecht of Bavaria was in command at the Somme. Both battles were bloodbaths, yet the war lasted another long two years after they had been fought. Our offering is a wooden wall plaque that measures 7 ¾” x 7 ¾.” Carved into the plaque’s bottom in German Fraktur script is “Verdun 1916.” Mounted directly above that is a complete artillery driving band that measures 4 ¾” in diameter. A hanger is on the reverse.

    PRUSSIA – BOWL- KAISER WILHELM II – SOUP BOWL – S.M.Y. HOHENZOLLERN

    SKU: 20-343

    $2,295.00

    The S.M.Y. (Seiner Majestät Yacht) Hohenzollern was Kaiser Wilhelm II’s royal yacht. An earlier royal yacht by the same name was launched in 1878 and used by the House of Hohenzollern heads until 1892. It was then renamed the Kaiser Adler and later scrapped in 1912. The second, and most famous, S.M.Y. Hohenzollern was placed in service in 1894. It was used extensively by Kaiser Wilhelm II until just shortly before WW I began, when it was retired. [A bigger and even more opulent S.M.Y. Hohenzollern actually was launched in 1914, but it remained incomplete due to the war]. Wilhelm II spent the equivalent of five years (from 1894 through the first part of 1914) aboard the second Hohenzollern, primarily sailing around the Baltic, North, and Mediterranean Seas. Every summer, with the exception of 1906, Wilhelm’s favorite destination was Norway. The Hohenzollern, accompanied by at least one German cruiser anchored in a fjord, where the Kaiser exercised daily in the morning, sailed, and enjoyed visits ashore. He and his guests dined luxuriously from a table service specifically designed for use aboard the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern. The Kaiser maintained many different place settings at his various castles and estates. He even had a set designed for his use aboard the Kaiserliche Marine’s various flagships, as well as aboard his racing sloop. [Saying the Kaiser knew how to live it up in style is a gross understatement]. One tableware pattern that many Imperial German collectors prefer is that from the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern’s table…

    PRUSSIA – DINNER PLATE – KAISER WILHELM II’s PERSONAL DINNER SERVICE ABOARD NAVAL VESSELS

    SKU: 20-348

    $1,495.00

    DINNER PLATE – KAISER WILHELM II’s PERSONAL DINNER SERVICE ABOARD NAVAL VESSELS. This is an interesting, very rare, dinner plate that Kaiser Wilhelm II used when he sailed with the German fleet. The plate is interesting because it is NOT named for the Kaiser’s flagships, the battleship S.M.S. Kaiser Wilhelm II or, later, the S.M.S. Deutschland. He also had table service for his royal yacht, the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern and his racing sloop, the S.M.Y. Iduna. Kaiser Wilhelm II was very intrigued by his navy and his role within it. Plans for the Imperial German Navy’s expansion were constantly brewing at the Navy Ministry between the Kaiser and his alter-ego, Admiral von Tirpitz. As the German Empire’s Kaiser, Wilhelm was expected to live well, but he went FAR beyond that. Wilhelm lived in virtually the same style on his royal yacht, the S. M. Y. Hohenzollern, as he did at any of his palaces on land, INCLUDING the specially-designed dishware. The S. M. Y. Hohenzollern carried special plates, saucers, etc., exclusively for use on that vessel. So, a fifth set of tableware was created for his visits to other ships in the fleet so that he would have the same level of luxury aboard the other ships that he chanced to visit. For example, cruisers were dispatched to attend him on his regular visits to Norway’s fjords. Thus, if he entertained officers aboard their ship instead of the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern, he had the “correct” tableware to fete them. The plate measures…

    SKU: 20-352 XRH

    $695.00

    DINNER PLATE – PERSONAL TABLE SERVICE – KAISER WILHELM II One can argue that Kaiser Wilhelm II led the most opulent lifestyle of any European Royal. He owned multiple castles throughout Germany, not to mention his royal yacht, the S.M.Y. Hohenzollern, racing sloops, and so on. Each vessel required a different pattern of dishware. He also required special dishware for his flagships when he traveled with the Imperial German Fleet! Today we are offering one of my personal favorites. It is a “Blue Flower” pattern dinner plate made by KPM. Unfortunately, we have been unable to discover much information about this particular pattern. The dinner plate’s obverse features a blossom in its center that has been delicately rendered in several different shades of blue. Three smaller representations of the central theme appear on the dinner plate’s scalloped edges, along with two blue butterflies. On the dinner plate’s reverse displayed the KPM hallmark. Directly above that is the year (1898) when the plate was put into service. [This marked the tenth year of Kaiser Wilhelm II reign, which was twenty years before he was forced to abdicate]. Wilhelm II’s royal cypher, “Wilhelm Rex,” appears just above the “1898.” The dinner plate measures 9.5″ in diameter, and is in very good condition with no nicks. This is a consignment item.

    PRUSSIA / NASSAU – STEIN – FELD-ARTILLERIE-REGIMENT Nr 27

    SKU: 18-437 XLO

    $850.00 $722.50

    PRUSSIA / NASSAU – STEIN – FELD-ARTILLERIE-REGIMENT Nr 27 It comes from a collector of veterans’ steins who recently passed away. His widow has entrusted us with finding a new home for several of his prized steins. The gentleman had an amazing eye for good quality and only acquired the “best of the best” steins. We have four of his steins in this update and hope to share more with you in the future. The very large and elaborate veteran’s stein was for a soldier who served in 1. Nassauisches Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr 27 – Batterie Nr 4. The regiment was founded in 1833 and garrisoned at Mainz-Wiesbaden. It was assigned to the XVIII. Armeekorps. Nassau was a Duchy that was founded in 1806. It remained an independent state until 1866, when it fought on the losing side of the Austro-Prussian War and was annexed by Prussia as were the Kingdom of Hannover and the Duchy of Braunschweig. When Nassau was folded into Prussia, she had two Infanterie Regiments and one Artillerie Regiment. These all became Prussian regiments. In 1897, Kaiser Wilhelm granted the two Nassau Infanterie Regiments their Battle of Waterloo bandeaux, (the battle honors worn on the pickelhauben’s wappen of their from their participation at the 1815 battle). As the Artillerie Regiment was not formed until 1833, their kugelhelme wappens remained unadorned. The porcelain stein’s overall height is 12.” A soldier standing beside a cannon adorns the pewter lid. Its thumb device features a rampant crowned lion. An inscription…
