    GERMANY – DAGGER – PIN – NAVY

    SKU: 13-696

    $695.00

    In the past we have offered miniatures of the German naval dagger. We have never offered one quite like this! This miniature was intended either as a tie tack or as a lady’s pin. It has a safety on the reverse. The attaching pin is mounted to the scabbard’s reverse. The dagger actually can be withdrawn from its scabbard, to which it is attached by a very fine gold-toned chain. When withdrawn, we see that the blade is plain, with a high-silver finish. The overall dagger length (in the scabbard) is 2 1/4.” When withdrawn from the scabbard, the dagger measures 1 1/2″ in length. The scabbard by itself measures 1 1/2.” It is a very handsome decorative piece which can be worn by that special person (or you) on dress-up occasions!

  • GERMANY - PIN - FRANCO-PRUSSIAN WAR - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    GERMANY – PIN – FRANCO-PRUSSIAN WAR

    SKU: 01-460

    $175.00

    Veteran pieces from the 1870/1871 Franco-Prussian War are much more difficult-to-find than those from WW I. The number of men who served during the earlier conflict was much smaller. To add to the exclusivity, this is a veteran’s badge for a man who had served in 1870/71, and then moved to the USA! The badge has a bar at the top that says “Souvenir.” Below that is a tricolored ribbon in Germany’s national colors (black, white, and red). The ribbon reads, “15. Sundes Kriegerfest Akron, O. August 18-23 1900.” That tells us the badge celebrates the 15th annual Akron, Ohio meeting of veterans, who began meeting in 1885. Below that, attached to the ribbon, is a circular device containing an 1870 Iron Cross. Inside the button we see the badge was manufactured by a firm in Newark, NJ. During the time period, similar badges were very popular with USA Civil War veterans. Many groups from the North and South were still having reunions. The Franco-Prussian War happened only five years after our Civil War (indeed, the Prussians had observers here during the war)! I was delighted to locate this item.

    GERMANY – PURSE – LADIES SMALL PATRIOTIC CHANGE PURSE

    SKU: 34-89

    $95.00

    Here is an interesting ladies’ accessory that was purchased at a well known Berlin military uniform shop. This small change purse joins the many different patriotic items available for soldiers’ wives, sweethearts, mothers, and sisters. It measures 4 ½” x 5″ and is cut from the same dark-blue wool material used for many German military uniforms. The firm’s label is revealed when its front flap is unsnapped. The label is attached to the flap’s black silk inner lining and reads “Wilhelm Braun/Berlin S.W. 61/Yorkstr. 16.” The flap’s dark-blue outer cover features the silver bullion used to decorate an NCO’s tunic sleeves. The bullion runs horizontally across the flap’s base and is surmounted by a red, then a yellow, miniature shoulder strap. The straps could represent any one of a number of Prussian Army Garde-Regiments. [For example, the red shoulder strap was used by, but not limited to, such units as the Kaiser Franz Garde-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 2, the Garde-Jäger-Bataillon, the Garde-Schützen-Bataillon, the 2. Garde-Ulanen-Regiment, or the Garde-Pionier- Bataillon. By the same token, the yellow shoulder strap was used by, but not limited to, such units as the Garde-Fusilier-Regiment, the 2. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß, or the 3. Garde-Ulanen-Regiment]. The purse’s interior could secure such small items as paper money and change, personal papers, etc. It sports a set of short yellow cords at its top by which a lady could suspend it from her wrist. It is a very handy little item that could still be used by some special lady in…

    PATRIOTIC BOX – FEATURING GENERALFELDMARSCHALL PAUL von HINDENBURG

    SKU: 03-50

    $195.00

    PATRIOTIC BOX – FEATURING GENERALFELDMARSCHALL PAUL von HINDENBURG This patriotic box is the type that probably graced a woman’s dressing table, although it is possible a man might have used it for cuff links, stickpins, and so on. The octagonal metal box is embellished with roses, metal cabochons, and fancy scrollwork. Its crowning glory is a large, high-relief portrait of von Hindenburg in the center of the lid, with the label “Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg.” The box measures 6″ in length, 4″ in width and 3″ in height. It rests on four scroll-decorated feet. The remains of a gilt or silver wash can still be seen, although much of it has worn off over the years. The box itself would appear to be made of tin, or some other base metal. Although it has a lock, the key is missing. Inside, the top lid retains its linen cover. This would enable the owner to insert stickpins or other pieces of jewelry into for safekeeping. Some cotton batting remains inside the box, which may have been used to protect valuables, and keep them from bumping into one another. All in all, this is a very charming patriotic item.

The heart’s top “bows” feature scalloped, gold-toned shapes dripping down from them, while its bottom section rather resembles an anchor’s point. (Whether this meant the man was involved with the Navy, or it was just Art Deco styling, who knows)? A tiny replica of a 1914 Iron Cross decorates the pendant just below the jump ring at the heart’s top. Both photos have some age damage to them. The man appears to be in civilian dress, so he may have survived the war. It is very touching

    This is a very high-caliber patriotic necklace, which is exhibited in a black leatherette case. The circular pendant measures 1 3/8″ in diameter. The case is 2 ½” x 2 ½ .” A black Iron Cross, which is dated 1914, is surrounded by a gilt-toned wreath. The necklace comes complete with a small chain. The pendant is hallmarked on its reverse. The fitted leatherette case highlights the name of a jeweler in Berlin. This is a lovely, well-made piece. Since it features a black EK, it may well be a mourning piece worn by a family member in memory of a soldier who fell in battle.

Both men are in uniform. Beveled glass covers each of their photographs. This is a very early patriotic piece, that most likely dates from the 1870 through 1885-period. Friedrich III succeeded his father for only one-hundred-days. In a space of approximately one-hundred-days, Germany had THREE Kaisers: Wilhelm I, Friedrich III, and Wilhelm II.

    SKU: 17-610

    $150.00

    This is a marvelous combination of a Prussian silver coin for then König (and future Kaiser) Wilhelm I with a bezel that allowed a lucky lady to wear it as a pendant on a chain around her neck. The bezel is quite heavy and wide. It measures 1 1/4″ in diameter. The bail (connects the pendant to a necklace) is marked .800 silver. This means it was produced after 1885, when the silver marking standard was changed by an aging Kaiser Wilhelm I. The coin, however, is dated 1866 (Prussia’s big year, when she and her allies made short work of Austria, etc. in the Austro-Prussian War: a good warm-up for the 1870-1871 Franco Prussian War). It shows the Prussian king in profile on the obverse, surrounded by the words “Wilhelm Koenig von Preussen.” The coin’s reverse features the Hohenzollern Eagle and these words around its edge “Ein Vereins Thaler XXX Ein Pfund Fein” (An Association Dollar Thirty a Pound Fine). A small capital “A” is evident just beneath Wilhelm’s profile on the obverse. It is probably an indication which artist designed this special coin for whatever association benefited by its sale.

    SKU: 20-297

    $75.00

    I have examined this item for several minutes trying to categorize it for you. The best that I have come up with it is that it is a patriotic display item commemorating Germany’s first Kaiser, Wilhelm I (1797-1888). In addition to being Kaiser, he was also Prussia’s King from 1861 until his death in 1888. He assumed Prussia’s throne in 1861 when his older brother König Friedrich Wilhelm IV (1795-1861) died. Wilhelm IV was paralyzed and mentally incapacitated by a stroke in 1857. In 1858 Wilhelm I assumed the position of Regent for his older brother and remained in this position until the King’s death in 1861. He continued his brother’s policy of German unification, which was largely completed with the conclusion of the 1866 Austro-Prussian War. Through all this and for the balance of his rule until his 1888 death, his closest advisor and political ally was none other than the “Iron Chancellor,” Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898). While Wilhelm I remained King of Prussia, the other German states deferred to Prussian rule. After the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian War’s end, he was formally recognized as Emperor of Germany, as well as King of Prussia. Wilhelm I remained the political and moral head of Germany, and was much beloved by his people. Upon his death in March 1888, he was succeeded for ninety-nine days by his son, Germany’s second Kaiser, Friedrich III. Friedrich III was in ill health and died of cancer in June 1888. The third and final Kaiser of Germany,…

    PATRIOTIC PIN – TRENCH ART – IRON CROSS – .800 SILVER HALLMARK

    SKU: 32-182

    $125.00

    This is an early war patriotic pin with an Iron Cross that is also something of a trench art piece. The brass pin is constructed from a piece of an artillery shell driving band. These expended driving bands frequently were converted into various patriotic pieces by soldiers with extra time on their hands. The driving band piece measures ½” x 1.” An inch-long branch of oak leaves decorates its face. A fully-functioning pin on the band’s reverse allows it to be attached to a garment. Hanging down from the band is a marvelous, highly-detailed miniature 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class (including EVERY feature found on full-sized Iron Crosses). It measures ⅜” x ⅜.” If you carefully examine the attached photos, you will note that the Iron Cross is vaulted! Its reverse reveals an .800 silver hallmark. The silver hallmark tells us that this piece is an early-to-mid-war production (1914 to 1916). As the war continued, silver became less and less available for personal items such as this. Imagine its wearer’s pride more than one-hundred-years ago when she pinned this on to show her patriotism toward the Fatherland. It is an outstanding piece whose quality is as high as we have offered.

    SKU: 32-111

    $250.00

    This patriotic pin commemorates the 1913 wedding of Braunschweig’s Duke Ernst August (1887-1953) to Prussia’s Princess Viktoria Luise (1892-1980). “Vikki Lu,” as she was known in Germany, was Kaiser Wilhelm II’s only daughter. The marriage resolved some long-standing resentment that hailed back to when Prussia “absorbed” Hannover and Braunschweig after the latter’s defeat during the 1866 Austro-Prussian War. After the young couple’s marriage, control of Braunschweig was returned to Ernst August. He and his young bride then repaired to Braunschweig, where she was much beloved by the people. According to all accounts, theirs was a happy marriage, and far more successful for the young princess than many of her brothers marriages. The pin, which measures 1 1/4″ in diameter, is silver-toned. The obverse shows the royal couple in high-relief. He appears in his Husaren-Regiment Nr 17 uniform. Their names are listed on the obverse. The reverse displays a crown with rays of light emanating from it, shining down on “Zum Andenken An Die Thronbesteigung Des Herzogpaares 1913” (To commemorate the accession of the Duke and Duchess 1913). A pin and catch also are attached to the reverse. The patriotic pin is in excellent condition for being nearly one-hundred-years old.

Facing each other in the badge’s center are the Austrian and German Kaisers. At the badge’s top is a Hohenzollern Crown, with “1914” directly beneath it. At the very bottom is a 1914 Iron Cross. The badge is in excellent condition.

    PATRIOTIC PINS – IRON CROSS

    SKU: 17-423

    $275.00

    I was really taken by this dazzling pair of Iron Cross patriotic pins. I will describe them individually. You may purchase them together or separately, as you prefer. The first of the two pins is circular and measures 1 1/4″ in diameter. The frame is filigreed and silver-toned, although not actually silver. The center of the pin is constructed of two pieces that have been attached. The lower portion is a handsome, dark-blue, rounded and vaulted porcelain bisque. Attached to that is a stunning white, vaulted Iron Cross trimmed in black. This pin is impeccably made and of the highest caliber. This second pin is identical to the first in every respect, except that the bisque centerpiece is hand painted in a sumptuous burgundy. The condition of this example is equal to the blue piece. Both are ravishingly ornate and splendid. You may purchase either of these lovely patriotic pins for $150.00 a piece, or the pair for $250.00 (contact us at 01-727-233-6173 for details)

  • PATRIOTIC TURKISH - GALLIPOLI STAR - MINIATURE - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    PATRIOTIC TURKISH – GALLIPOLI STAR – MINIATURE

    SKU: 17-641

    $175.00

    During WW I, the Central Powers lined up against the Allies consisted of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria. The early through mid-war years revealed numerous signs of this cooperation. Patriotic jewelry was certainly one means of expressing the cooperation, particularly in the German and Austro-Hungarian Empires (perhaps due to the Teutonic ties between them). Turkey and Bulgaria also produced such artifacts, if on a less-plentiful scale. Our offering today reflects the Turkish involvement with a silver-toned badge that features an Iron Cross as its central theme. The cross’s center displays the word “Deutschland,” with the date, “1916,” below it. The cross is topped by a crown. A pair of crossed swords extends through the cross’s center. A crescent-shaped banner, with a star (which may represent a mini-Gallipoli Star) sitting atop its middle, is attached to the cross just above the two swords’ tips. The crescent bears the legend “Kriegs Andenken” (War Souvenirs). A miniature Gallipoli Star dangles from a jump ring attached to the middle-bottom of the crescent. The Star is in very fine condition, and even has enameled arms like its full-sized counterparts. While the decoration’s metal is silver-toned, no silver content hallmarks are visible on it. This exceptional piece of patriotic jewelry is in wonderful condition. It would make a captivating addition to any collection.

  • REGIMENTAL PATRIOTIC PIN - LEIB-GRENADIER-REGIMENT Nr 8 - PRUSSIA - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    REGIMENTAL PATRIOTIC PIN – LEIB-GRENADIER-REGIMENT Nr 8 – PRUSSIA

    SKU: 17-580

    $975.00

    This is a simply superb patriotic regimental pin for a very elite Prussian regiment. This regiment is unique among Prussian regiments, because it had a special, one-of-a-kind designation. While various types of infantry regiments existed within the Prussian Army (Füsilier, Grenadier, Fuß, and Infanterie), they primarily fell into Garde or non Garde status. It was the only Prussian infantry regiment that carried “Leib” or “Life” status. Three Prussian Husaren-Regiments (one Leib-Garde-Regiment and two Leib-Regiments) and one Prussian Küraßier-Regiment, carried “Leib” status. Saxony, Baden, and Hesse-Darmstadt had infantry and/or cavalry Leib-Regiments. The unusual Prussian infantry regiment of which we speak is Leib-Grenadier-Regiment König Friedrich Wilhelm III (1. Brandenburgisches) Nr 8. The regiment was raised in the midst of the Napoleonic Wars in 1809. It was garrisoned at Frankfurt a. O., and assigned to the III. ArmeeKorps. The pin itself is of the highest quality. It measures 1 1/2″ x 3/4.” Its central theme is a shield bearing König Friedrich Wilhelm III’s regimental cypher. I believe the shield is made of GOLD. Flanking the shield are some wonderful oak leaves (just branches, not a full wreath). Also atop the shield is a handsomely-crafted Hohenzollern Crown. It is very full with a high-relief effect. In turn, an elegant, horizontal, oval-shaped wreath surrounds the crown, shield, and oak leaves. An attractive pin is featured on its reverse. This is a magnificent piece from one of the most elite Prussian infantry regiments. When you have it in your hands, you will marvel at the quality…
