  • WÜRTTEMBERG’S KÖNIG WILHELM II’S PERSONAL BIBLE

    SKU: 20-374

    $1,895.00

    This is an amazing royalty item that once belonged to the Kingdom of Württemberg’s König Wilhelm II (1848-1921). Wilhelm II (not to be confused with Kaiser Wilhelm II) was the last King of Württemberg (one of Imperial Germany’s four major kingdoms along with Prussia, Bavaria, and Saxony). [Today, Baden-Württemberg is a state within Germany’s federal government]. König Wilhelm II was a very popular king with Württemberg’s citizens. He advanced many progressive ideas and was often seen in parks in Stuttgart walking his dogs without benefit of bodyguards. Since Wilhelm had no male heir, his cousin, Herzog Albrecht, would have been Württemberg’s next king. [Albrecht was considered one of Germany’s finest royal military commanders during WW I]. However, the war’s end required Wilhelm to abdicate on 30 November 1918 with the rest of Germany’s royalty. Wilhelm II was Württemberg’s final king, reigning from 1891 until 1918.
    Today we are offering a significant bible that was once König Wilhelm II’s personal property. It measures 1″ x 3 ¾” x 5 ½” The bible is bound in high-quality leather, with leather outside covers whose edges are trimmed in gold. A gold Württemberg Crown appears on its cover. All its pages are trimmed in gold, which adds a sumptuous note to the exterior’s appearance. A large shield immediately inside the front cover states that the bible came from König Wilhelm II’s personal library. The title page reads “Die Bibel,” with a circular rubber-stamped image that again proclaims it comes from König Wilhelm’s personal library. It also mentions that it is the edition originally prepared by Martin Luther. [Like most of Southern Germany, Württemberg was primarily Roman Catholic]. Its old and new testaments are printed in the old Fraktur script commonly used in Imperial Germany. The book is compact, which allowed Wilhelm II to carry it in his coat or military tunic pocket. It is in MINT condition and shows little wear.

  • WW I AVIATION PLATES

    SKU: 14-197

    $395.00

    This is a most unusual set of three plates that features a German biplane in flight. It appears to be an early war observation plane with a two man crew aboard. The plates are white with a blue border around the edge. In the 12 o’clock position appears the airplane with the initials M. F. S. around it. The reverse of each piece indicates that it was manufactured by the firm of Rosenthal from Bavaria. Under that appears “Franz Kreski Bromberg,” which may have been the store that sold them, but I am not sure about this. There are three plates in the set, two of them are dinner size plates which are 9 3/4″ in diameter. The third is oval shaped and would measure 10 ½” x 6 3/4″ at the widest points. The plates are well used (signs of use in the center from meals is evident where forks, knives or spoons were used), but the blue border and the airplane motif are in exceptional condition. I would estimate these plates to be from 1913-1917. A unique aviation item from the war that was most likely used in an officer’s mess in a squadron. I would prefer to sell these as a group but would consider selling them individually. Please call or write for a price on an individual piece.
