December 2018  Highlights

 

Welcome to our December highlights. It has been a busy year, particularly with two major collections being consigned to us. We are currently working on the second phase of the Reynolds collection, which will start to go up to the website over the coming weeks. The second phase includes some quite stunning Luftwaffe daggers.

 

 

Meanwhile, we bring you our December highlights. Three items, all fresh to market, of great rarity, and provenance. The first highlight remains today as the Holy Grail of Allach porcelain – The SS Reiter. The second highlight is a fine early example of the Kieninger & Obergfell Kriegsmarine ships clock, and finally a classic example of the M1936 SS chained dagger. 

 


The Allach Porcelain SS Reiter. A breathtakingly difficult piece to make at the time, and with the highest fall-out rate of all Allach manufactured pieces. It is widely believed to have been the first porcelain study of a horse with just two legs to the base without support. Typically, a horse would have a tree stump or other object protruding from the base, to hold up the underneath of the horse. The SS Reiter became a favoured gift between members of the German aristocracy. This piece has sat within two major collections over the last forty years.

 


Keininger & Obergfell produced the greater proportion of all the Kriegsmarine ships clocks. These high quality brass-cased clocks are sought after both by collectors of militaria, and those collecting clocks and watches. The most desirable examples are the early sub-500 ‘N/G’ pieces. The N/G designation is thought to be Nord Gruppe, which was superseded by a generalised ‘N’. To date, known examples of N/G designated clocks have a number under ‘500’. This actual clock features in the publication, German Military Timepieces Volume 4.

 


Lastly, but by no means least, we offer a classic example of the SS M1936 chained dagger. This Type 1 dagger remains in beautiful condition, and with particularly fine detail to the chain links. The blade remains in as close to mint condition as one could wish for with full polish and cross grain present. The only marks being light runner marks. Originating from the eminent USA-based Bob Moses collection, and acquired by him direct from a US serviceman.
