  • OLDENBURG – BANNER – VETERANS ASSOCIATION – INFANTRY-REGIMENT Nr 91

    SKU: 25-25

    $1,395.00

    This is a really exciting find from our most recent buying trip to Germany. It is a desk-sized veteran’s banner representing a veteran’s group for Oldenburgisches Infantry-Regiment Nr 91. This regiment was raised during the height of the Napoleonic Wars in1813. It was garrisoned in Oldenburg. Oldenburg, although designated a Grand Duchy, was relatively small. It fielded a single infantry regiment, one cavalry regiment, and one Bataillon of artillery. The regimental banner would always be used at parade functions and even often while on the march. This desk banner closely replicates the regimental banner in many respects. The mini banner measures 8 ½” x 81/2.” It is made of silk and sports mini tassels on three sides, just as the larger version would. One side displays the Oldenburg coat-of-arms, along with the legend “Die Treue ist das Mark der Ehre (Fidelity is the Mark of Honor).” In each of the four corners is the Grand Duke of Oldenburg Peter Ludwig’s royal cypher. The opposite side has as the central theme a gold embroidered crowned cypher for Peter Ludwig appearing within a wreath of leaves. Above and below this cypher is the legend “Verein Ehemaliger 91er Oldenburg (Society of Former 91st Oldenburg).” This marvelous handcrafted banner is attached to a metal frame that allows it to be displayed on a table top or other flat surface. It stands 21 3/4″ tall and 9″ wide. It has a substantial and decorative base. I must tell you that this piece displays like a…

  • DINNER PLATE – DINNER SERVICE – ROYAL HOUSE – OLDENBURG

    SKU: 20-260

    $695.00

    This is a enchanting dinner plate from the royal house of Oldenburg’s dinnerware service. Oldenburg was a Grand Duchy that was quite small in size. It fielded a limited military and had close ties to Prussia. The Grand Duke of Oldenburg married his daughter to one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s sons. The plate measures 9″ in diameter. It has a sunken area in the center that I find quite interesting. The plate’s edge is rimmed in gold. Within that is a much thinner gold band. The gold trim on the plate’s edge shows substantial wear. The plate’s top presents Oldenburg’s very ornate Coat-of-Arms. Five or more colors are used in its display. The plate’s center features an interesting gold device, perhaps it is feathers. It also shows substantial wear. The reverse has no manufacturer’s markings, etc. While the plate is not in the best condition, its origins in a small state make it more of a rarity. It is a charming piece for you to contemplate.

    POSTCARD – PRINZESSIN EITEL FRIEDRICH

    SKU: 38-2354

    $15.00

    This postcard shows Prinzessin Eitel Friedrich (1879-1964). She was born Sophia Charlotte, a Duchess of the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg. She was married to Prinz Eitel Friedrich (1883-1942) one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s six sons. It was well known publicly that the marriage was unhappy. Rumors of infidelities by both parties and suggestions that the Prinz was homosexual were rampant. Supposedly, Eitel Friedrich had wanted to divorce Sophia in 1919, but was prevented from doing so by his father. They finally were divorced in 1926. They had no children. She is photographed in profile, wearing a tiara and a pearl choker. Her gown bares her neck and shoulders and is probably a formal ball gown.

  • FRAMED REICHSMARINE PHOTOGRAPH

    SKU: 40-207

    $40.00

    This is an interesting photograph, which dates from the 1920’s. It shows a group of twenty-eight officers on what I believe is a Cruiser. The first row shows the ship’s senior officers, many of whom are wearing the 1914 Iron Cross 1st or 2nd Class. I also see an Iron Cross 1st Class equivalent from Oldenburg and Mecklenburg-Schwerin on a tunic or two. The ship’s commander is readily visible in the middle of the front row. He is wearing the uniform of a Kapitän zur See, complete with an old-fashioned, winged-collar shirt. As a matter of fact, as I look more closely at the EK 2 ribbon in his buttonhole, I believe I see the crown and crossed swords of the Knights Cross with Swords of the Hohenzollern House Order! The photo, which measures 5” x 7 1/4,” is housed in a period brown wooden frame measuring 6 1/2” x 9.” This is a real research project for the right collector.

  • GERMANY – DOCUMENT SET FOR ENLISTED MAN WHO FINISHED WW I AS OFFIZIER-STELLVERTRETER

    SKU: 31-111

    $195.00

    This is a fascinating mini group for someone who began WW I as an enlisted man, and finished it as an Offizier-Stellvertreter. The set consists of his enlisted man’s militärpaß and his Offizier-Stellvertreter’s Kriegs=Stammrollen=Auszug (War Master Rolls Excerpt/Extract). Essentially, an Offizier-Stellvertreter is an acting officer who has not received a commission (patent), but is “acting” with an officer’s command-authority and status. It gives the man a higher ranking than any NCO, but not quite as high as a commissioned leutnant or Leutnant der Reserve. The militärpaß, of course, is an enlisted man/NCO’s service record. The booklet contains all of a soldier’s “who, what, and where.” It will list the units in which he has served, any specialized training received, any decorations awarded, and so on. The Kriegs=Stammrollen=Auszug was a document containing most of the same information, but in a different format. The militärpaß shows that he was an Oldenburg native, born in 1892. He entered the army in October 1912. He was posted to Jäger-Bataillon Fürst Bismarck (Pommersches) Nr 2 in Kompagnie Nr 1. He won both the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class and Oldenburg’s equivalent, the Friedrich August Cross 2nd Class. He received both of these decorations in 1914, which was quite an accomplishment, as the requirements to receive them were much stricter that early in WW I. His progress through the war and the various units to which he was attached are all revealed. This set can provide hours of interesting research.
