COLOR POSTCARD – GROßADMIRAL PRINZ HEINRICH – PRUSSIA

SKU: 38-2657

$25.00

This is an intriguing color postcard that features Kaiser Wilhelm II’s younger brother Heinrich, Großadmiral and Prince of Prussia (1862-1929). Heinrich was one of the Kaiserliche Marine’s six großadmirals during its existence. Here, Heinrich appears resplendent in his gala uniform, complete with all his bestowed orders and decorations. His portrait is small and contained within a laurel leaf wreath. The portrait is inserted within a painting by Professor Willy Stöwer, one of Germany’s most famous naval painters at the time. The painting features the fleet’s flagship, the S.M.S. Deutschland, at Kiel. Please note: below Prinz Heinrich’s portrait is his flag denoting he is an admiral, AND a flag proclaiming him a House of Hohenzollern prince. The latter flag was flown on any vessel on which a prince traveled. [We currently are offering such a flag on our FLAG MERCHANDISE PAGE, ROYALTY MERCHANDISE PAGE, and NAVY MERCHANDISE PAGE. Click on any of these three page titles to see it]. Finally, the postcard displays the reproduction signatures of Prinz Heinrich and two other personages. It was not mailed.
