April 2019  Highlights

 

 

Welcome to our April 2019 highlights.  Having received the second phase of the Collection Lionello, we are showcasing three rare, fresh to market pieces from the collection.



The collection built up over three decades contains a broad spectrum of material,  including items of  military, political, and civil interest. Apart from the three pieces showcased within the April highlight, there are many other pieces of interest. These will be going up to site over the coming weeks, and include a rare named Hitler Youth Leaders visor cap, a Diplomatic officials visor cap by Hitler's preferred capmaker, Holters, various Gau Badges, and a Hitler 1944 Silver Wound Badge.

 


The first Collection Lionello highlight is an example of the Klein 1953 Oakleaves, Swords & Diamonds in silver. Klein first started re-making the Oakleaves, Swords & Diamonds in 1953, after receiving a commission to make a set for the former Luftwaffe air-ace, Adolf Galland. Afterwards they continued to make a few sets as commissions for collectors. This stunning Klein set was produced in silver, with simulated diamonds, and as with the pre-1945 sets, is made up of multiple layers riveted together. Since all but two pre-1945 sets are accounted for in museums, or remaining with the families, this set remains one of the few opportunities for a collector to have ownership of such a beautiful award.

 


The story of how the Russians captured the vast majority of German military standards in 1945 is well known, as is the fact that most remain within the sanctuary of the Moscow State Military Museum. Hence the few German military standards, and parts of standards, that become available on the open market, always create interest. Our second highlight from the Collection Lionello, is a stunning Luftwaffe 1938 pattern standard finial.

 


The third and last Collection Lionello highlight for April, is an exceptionally rare Deschler manufactured ten-rivet German Cross in Gold. These initial production pieces were manufactured in particularly small quantities.  The Company quickly found easier production techniques, resulting in fewer, and fewer rivets being needed. Today, the Deschler ten-rivet German Cross remains the Holy Grail for advanced award collectors.
