August 2018  Highlights

 

Welcome to our August highlights. Three items, all fresh to market, and emphasising the amazing variety of material available within the Third Reich period. The first highlight features a scarce Kriegsmarine divers knife, purchased from the rock singer, and military antiques dealer, Chris Farlow, in 1969. Secondly we offer a Rosenthal ‘Berghof’ plate, beautifully hand-finished by one of the company’s leading artists. Lastly, a rarely encountered SS Sharpshooter sleeve diamond, along with citation and membership book.

 



The Kriegsmarine diver knife is of the so-called first pattern style. Manufactured from brass and steel, and with the typical screw in knife. Rare to find on the market, this example has a particularly fascinating provenance – having been purchased from the Rock singer, Chris Farlow, in 1969, and in the same collection  from 1969 until recently consigned to ULRIC of ENGLAND.

 


Rosenthal’s ‘Berghof’ plate was manufactured in the 1930s. Realising the public interest in Hitler’s Bavarian mountain home, they produced a limited series, which was made available from their shops. The very best hand finished examples received their ‘A’ rating, and also were signed by the artist. This plate is one of their best hand finished examples.

 


Lastly, but by no means least, we offer an SS Sharpshooter sleeve diamond, along with the full citation and membership book. Few SS men ever made the Sharpshooter, or Meistershooter grade, hence the small amount ever awarded, and the rarity of these grades today.  This grouping comes with excellent provenance, direct from the Kuhmichel family archive.
