September 2021  Highlights



Firstly, we hope our customers are continuing to remain safe during these difficult times. That said, one can at least feel a degree of normality returning to our lives. Meanwhile, ULRIC of ENGLAND remains open for mail-order business, and looks forward to hearing from you.

 


 


We have recently taken in on consignment the first phase of the Meadway Collection of SS uniforms and insignia (see under collections – menu bar top right, drop down to Meadway SS Collection).  Highlights this month show cases three outstanding items from this collection.

 

 

 


The first highlight is the stunning four pocket open-neck tunic originally belonging to SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Oswald Pohl. The tunic, and its history, are already well known amongst the collecting world. A part of the Mollo collection from the 1950s, it spent nearly two decades in the ULRIC of ENGLAND collection, before being acquired for the Meadway Collection.

 

 

 


Next we offer the Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross originally belonging to SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Oswald Pohl. The award was taken by The US Warden of Supply at Nuremburg, Richard Raabe. This, along with many other insignia and awards belonging to high profile prisoners awaiting trial from 1945, were retained as souvenirs by Raabe. They were eventually sold by him in 1991. Pohl’s award is a simply beautiful example manufactured by the firm of Deschler.

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, (but certainly not least) we show case a solid silver cigarette case made by the famous Munich jewellers, Otto Gahr. The cigarette case was ordered by Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler, and given as a personal gift to SS-Obergruppenfuhrer August Heissmeyer. The inside of the case bears a beautifully engraved dedication to Heissmeyer. The cigarette case comes in Gahr’s original leatherette presentation box. The firm of Gahr are well  known as the makers of all SS Totenkopfrings , along with the Deutschland Erwache standards.
