Allach Porcelain SS Rider

The Holy Grail of Allach Porcelain collecting

Breathtakingly difficult to produce

 

With Allach Porcelain starting to find itself understood by those in the wider porcelain world, pieces have been appraised in a different way. Experts within the wider porcelain world look at Allach Porcelain more dispassionatly than the typical collector of German militaria. Suddenly, the pieces have to stand on their own merit. This is where the SS Reiter (SS Rider) stands out from the crowd. 

Try and find a porcelain horse trotting with just two slim legs attaching the piece to the base, without the obligatory help of a central tree stump, or other such devise to hold the bulk of the porcelain horse - Let alone the addition of a figure in the saddle. This is exactly what Allach Porcelain accomplished with the SS Reiter. Experts today, suggest there must have been a large fall-out rate on this piece

 

Description: Allach Porcelain SS Reiter (SS Rider). White glazed finish with a figure of an SS Officer in the saddle. The horse in a typical dressage pose, trotting with just two legs to the base. Exceptional detail to the rider, including an SS 1933 pattern dagger to the rear of the riders back, attched to the belt with a vertical hanger. The SS Reiter was designed by Prof Theodor Karner and was designated as model number '0', and as such is classed as the first Allach Porcelain piece within their model number listing.

This example is the later 1938 version of the SS Reiter with much improved detail. Of particular importance is the brassard, collar insignia, belt buckle, and saddle insignia, all of which had much improved detail over the initial production piece. A firm saddle form peak visor cap even gave this 1938 version extra height.

The base bears the impressed name of Prof Th Karner, along with a raised octagon, and impressed central Runes.

Size: 30cm

Condition report: Remaining in perfect condition, free from chips to the ears of the horse, and damage to the reigns. Typical air hole present underneath the horse.

Provenance: Originally acquired from a German collector by the UK-based Allach collector, Tony Oliver (1970s). Then Stephen Jolly Collection (1980s / 1990s). One collection since consigned to ULRIC of ENGLAND.

Note: Due to the value and delicate nature of The SS Reiter, shipping restrictions may apply. Contact us about shipping.
