October 2018  Highlights

 
 

 

 Welcome to our October highlights. Three items, all fresh to market, of exceptional rarity, and with excellent provenance.

 



The first highlight is one of just two pieces known to exist – the Luftwaffe Prototype Dagger by Eickhorn. The second highlight is a matched pair of Hitler presented 1938 Golden Party Badges, and lastly, a stunning Allach porcelain figure of the Luftwaffe Officer.

 


 

Only two Luftwaffe Prototype daggers by Eickhorn, are know to exist. A beautiful design based on the Hermann Goring wedding sword.  It was prototype number 1 that came to light first, and is recorded in the Luftwaffe dagger publication authored by the US-based edged weapons specialist, Thomas Wittmann. This example, prototype number 2, is identical in every respect to number 1, apart from its internal numbering.

 

 

 

A matched pair of Hitler presented 1938 Golden Party Badges. The badges, consisting of the large 30.5mm version, and its sister 25mm version have survived in close to mint condition with most of the mercuric gilt intact. The two badges came direct from the original owners family to the Hamburg-based medal specialist, Detlev Niemann.

 

 

 

 

Lastly, but by no means least, we offer a stunning and rare example of the Allach porcelain Luftwaffe Officer, bearing the Allach model number ‘66’. Remaining within the same family; since being presented with the figure in 1937; the back-story to this masterpiece would be worthy of making into a film. An Italian diplomat based in Turkey, is presented with this Allach figure – probably by the German general, Von Papen.  Bring in a Lithuanian that joined the Luftwaffe, and who’s son later married the grand daughter of the Italian diplomat. It is a charming and evocative story that will be included in the sale of the figure.
