    GERMANY – PRINT – FULL COLOR – S.M.S. SEEADLER – SIGNED BY THE ARTIST AND WHICH IDENTIFIES GRAF VON LUCKNER  

    SKU: 19-307

    $95.00

    Our offering today is a color print of the S.M.S. Seeadler which is signed by the artists (Who we cannot identify) and has the name of Felix Graf von Luckner.

    Felix Graf von Luckner (1881-1966) was one of WW I’s most interesting naval figures. To say that he was a colorful figure is an absolute understatement! Von Luckner was known as the Seeteufel (Sea Devil). Von Luckner came from an aristocratic family and did not want to follow the life path required by his father. Instead, he left home at a young age and traveled around the world taking any number of physically-demanding jobs: working in a circus, as a lumberman, and many positions requiring heavy labor. His father wanted him to join the cavalry, but von Luckner said he would not return to his family until he could wear his Emperor’s naval uniform. He returned to Germany in 1911 and passed his exams for the merchant fleet…..

    GERMANY –  DOCUMENT AND AWARD – 1914 IRON CROSS 2nd CLASS – GERMAN NAVAL SEAMAN

    SKU: 06-241

    $250.00

    German naval operations were based in two areas of Germany: the North Sea’s Wilhelmshaven and the Baltic Sea’s Kiel. [During WW I Kaiser Wilhelm II’s brother, Prinz Heinrich of Prussia, was a Großadmiral (the only Großadmiral to have tactical command at the front) based at Kiel. He was responsible for operations in the Baltic against the Russians. Kiel was always a secondary front, since Wilhelmshaven hosted Germany’s biggest, newest, and best ships as they faced the English fleet. This was particularly true in 1916 when the two fleets clashed at the Battle of Jutland (Skagerrak)]….

Soldiers from all WW I’s participants created such trench art as bracelets, necklaces, rings, broaches, matchbox holders, lamps, vases, etc. [Naturally, our focus is on items created by Imperial German soldiers].

    $9,495.00

    This is a very fine example of a highly sought after officer pickelhaube from 1. Badisches Leib-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 109. This elite regiment was founded in 1803 during the midst of the Napoleonic wars and was garrisoned at the capital city of Karlsruhe where it was attached to the XIV. Armeekorps.

    In the German army there were seven elite infantry regiments. The pickelhauben that they wore was dictinnctly different from the other line and guard regiments from their respective states. Included in this group was 1. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß from Prussia, Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 from Braunschweig, Königl. Sächs. 1 Leib-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 100 from Saxony, 1. Badisches Leib-Grenadier-Regiment Nr 109 from Baden, Leibgarde-Infanterie Regiment (1. Großherzogl.) Hessisches) Nr 115 from Hesse-Darmstadt, and Grenadier-Regiment Königin Olga (1. Württembergisches) Nr 119 from Württemberg, and Infanterie-Leib-Regiment from Bavaria.
    Each of the headdress from these regiments are highly sought after. The pickelhauben from Saxony and Württemberg are not as showy and hence can be purchased for a more reasonable price. The other five which include four pickelhauben and one mitre are the real stars of the headdress of infantry regiments……
