March 2019  Highlights

 

 

Welcome to our March 2019 highlights.  We have three fresh to market, historical items with provenance, to showcase,

 


The first highlight is a unique leather-bound program given by Hitler, to Mussolini, on his state visit to Germany in 1937. Our second highlight is a German Luftwaffe RLM prototype observer watch, and our third and last highlight for this month, an Imperial German Kaisermarine Capital Ship / U-Boat ensign.

 


Our first highlight for the month is unique and simply breath-taking. When Mussolini visited Hitler in 1937, Hitler presented Mussolini with a hand-crafted book, with a program of events for his visit. The book was the first commission given by Hitler to Frieda Thiersch, and was instrumental in her receiving the commission for the Knights Cross award documents. This beautiful, and historical item, is one of the first items we are offering from the Collection Lionello.

 


Before formal contracts for Luftwaffe observer watches were put in place, the RLM (Reichsluftsministerium) trialed a range of observer watches manufactured by various makes. Each watch bore an RLM serial number to the reverse. This particular RLM prototype observer watch was manufactured by the famous watch brand, Wempe, and has resided in two significant collections. Today, examples of the RLM series of Luftwaffe observer watches have become the Holy Grail for military watch collectors.

 


The third and last highlight for March is indeed a rare survivor. An Imperial German Kaisermarine Capital ship / U-Boat ensign. This huge ensign is of multi sectional composition, with the Iron Cross to the corner, and the Imperial eagle to the centre. This, and another Imperial German Kaisermarine ensign, were a part of the Clayton naval collection, and haven’t been on the market for over fifty years.
