PRUSSIA – COFFEE/TEA CREAMER – PERSONAL TABLE SERVICE – PRINZ EITEL FRIEDRICH

PRUSSIA – COFFEE/TEA CREAMER – PERSONAL TABLE SERVICE – PRINZ EITEL FRIEDRICH

The creamer stands 3 3/4″ tall, measures 2 ½” in diameter at the rim, and 2 1/8″ in diameter at the base. A delicate gold trim band encircles the rim. Its handle features gold designs against the white porcelain. A floral motif extends from the handle’s top and bottom. On the cup’s side is Eitel Friedrich’s royal cypher in gold. Over the cypher we see a multicolored Hohenzollern Crown. The cup’s bottom displays the KPM hallmark and 1924, the year the creamer was manufactured, as well as an Iron Cross. It is interesting to see a royal’s personal item such as this AFTER the empire’s fall. (My theory is it was a replacement for a broken piece). The creamer’s condition is excellent. It is a truly wonderful example of a Prussian prince’s tableware….

PRUSSIA – PICKELHAUBE – OFFICER -1. GARDE REGIMENT zu FUß – ATTRIBUTED TO PRINZ ADALBERT.

It was garrisoned in Potsdam with its Kavallerie Regiment counterpart, the Regiment der Garde du Corps. The regiment was loaded with denizens of Imperial Germany’s highest royal and noble families. Every Hohenzollern Prinz was invested in it, including all of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s sons, just as the Kaiser himself had been as a young man. The Kaiser also served as its Regimental Chef……
