    GERMANY – CIGARETTE LITER – ARTILLERY SHELL REPLICA

    SKU: 03-131

    $75.00

    This is a cigarette lighter that was used on a desk or side table. It stands 5″ tall and measures 1″ in diameter at the base. The artillery shell top removes to reveal the wick and the igniter wheel. The wheel turns and sparks, so it is very possible that the lighter can operate. The lighter’s bottom features a screw that I presume is removed to add lighter fluid, which is necessary for the lighter to operate. I see no marks anywhere on the lighter that indicate its age or origin.

The car is identified for being where the armistice was signed on 11 November 1918. This simple railway car became even more famous in 1940 (twenty-two years later) when Adolf Hitler accepted France’s surrender. He then imposed some of the same harsh terms that had been levied on Germany in 1918.

    PRUSSIA – CIGARETTE CASE – PRINZ ADALBERT von PREUßEN

    SKU: 20-257

    $2,995.00

    CIGARETTE CASE – PRINZ ADALBERT von PREUßEN Prinz Adalbert was the only one of Kaiser Wilhelm’s six sons who served in the Kaiserliche Marine. All the other boys served the Army in one capacity or another. (The Kaiser’s eldest son, Kronprinz Wilhelm, served as an Armee field commander). This unusual wooden cigarette case sports Prinz Adalbert’s royal cypher, and measures 3 3/4″ x 3 1/4.” The wood (it might be cedar, judging from its grain) has a burled finish. It shows some scratching, but one must search carefully to discover it. Prinz Adalbert’s crowned “A” cypher appears in GOLD on the obverse. The case has a silver frame that secures its wooden sections. The case’s side is hallmarked with .925 silver, a moon, and a Hohenzollern Crown per Kaiser Wilhelm I’s 1885 royal decree. To the right is the manufacturer’s hallmark, a triangle, which appears within a circle, along with two more circles and marks in the triangle’s three corners. I am not familiar with this manufacturer (readers?). This is a terrific cigarette case, either owned by a royal, or given by one as a gift to a lucky recipient. Kaiser Wilhelm II was far more liberal in giving gifts than any of his sons. Gifts from any of the Hohenzollern Princes are quite scarce. I have had the privilege of offering royal gifts from the Kaiser and the Kronprinz, but this is the first time I have had anything from any of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s other sons. The simple…

    PRUSSIA – CIGARETTE CASE – PRINZ ADALBERT von PREUßEN

    SKU: 20-258

    $1,995.00

    CIGARETTE CASE – PRINZ ADALBERT von PREUßEN Prinz Adalbert was the only one of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s six sons who served in the Kaiserliche Marine. All the other boys served the Army in one capacity or another. (The Kaiser’s eldest son, Kronprinz Wilhelm, served as an Armee field commander). This large (far larger than most I have seen) cigarette case is silver-toned. It measures 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4.” The case’s dimple-patterned exterior rather resembles silver snake-skin. Its interior, which measures 6″ x 5 1/4″ when fully opened, is covered with a gold wash finish. Engraved in the interior’s left half is Prinz Adalbert’s reproduced signature, along with a personalized dedication to the “Kommandeur I/M. B./R 4.” The dedication concludes “In dankbarer Kameradshaft Treuerden 1916” (In grateful, dearest comradeship, 1916). (One speculates that Prinz Adalbert gave cigarette cases like it to several men who served with him in this unit). The elastic strap that held the cigarettes in place is long gone. The case’s side catch is hallmarked underneath for .800 silver and its manufacturer, and sports a moon, and a Hohenzollern Crown per Kaiser Wilhelm I’s 1885 royal decree. It is a high-quality cigarette case, given by a member of the royal family. Kaiser Wilhelm II was far more liberal in giving gifts than any of his sons. Gifts from any of the Hohenzollern Princes are quite scarce. I have had the privilege of offering royal gifts from the Kaiser and the Kronprinz, but this is the first time…

    PRUSSIA – JEWELRY BOX – REPRESENTING THE GARDE du CORPS

    SKU: 03-81

    $550.00 $495.00

    JEWELRY BOX – REPRESENTING THE GARDE du CORPS This is a jewelry box in the shape of an officer’s visor cap from the Regiment des Garde du Corps (GdC). [They were the Prussian Army’s leading cavalry regiment. When the Kaiser was out in public, a group of them always accompanied him. One generally saw an NCO in full-parade-gear (including the Hohenzollern-Eagle-topped helmet), standing near the Kaiser, brandishing the emperor’s personal standard]. This charming jewelry box is faithful in detail to its larger counterpart. It sports a black visor, the wide, lower red trim band, and the narrow band of red piping encircling its top. The rest of the “cap” is white. The case’s top exhibits some soiling from age (it IS nearly 100-years-old). One kokarde is present. The spot for the second is filled by the button that opens the box. Inside, the box’s bottom surface appears to be leather. The upper half sports a white silk liner, which has embossed on it in gold, “Zur Erinnerung an den Weltkrieg 1914 Gesetzl. Gesch.” The box’s top (the cap’s cover) measures 2 1/2″ in diameter. The entire box measures 1″ in height. This is a marvelous little item. Only your imagination will limit what you can do with it!

    SKU: 03-100

    $75.00

    SHIPPING BOX – SENT TO SOLDIER IN Württemberg This is a small cardboard box that measures 6″ x 4″ x 3.” It was used to ship small items to a soldier serving in the army or at the Front. Transport for gifts to soldiers was quite limited, so small boxes like this were required to limit the amount sent. These boxes were often filled with small gifts and those necessities that were difficult-to-obtain. I cannot see a date when it was mailed, but it was mailed TO a Kingdom of Württemberg soldier serving in Kompagnie Nr 8 of Infanterie-Regiment Nr 127. The box is in excellent condition and would make a fine part of a soldier’s display.

    SKU: 03-110 XFB

    $175.00

    CIGARETTE BOX – COMMEMORATING POST WW I SERVICE IN SIBERIA Following WW I’s end, both Russia and Germany experience particularly chaotic internal situations. In Russia, Bolshevik Red and anti-Bolshevik White forces battled for control in a bloody civil war. Meanwhile in Germany, many soldiers found themselves policing internal strife during the Freikorps Period, or battling the Reds alongside the Whites in Russia. Such was the case with this small wooden cigarette box’s original owner, who saw combat in Siberia. The cedar box measures 1″ x 3 ¼” 4 ¼.” Its exterior features the legend “Erinnerung an Sibirien,” (Memory of Siberia). Its top swings up to allow access to the interior where his cigarettes were placed. The handsome little box is in very fine condition. This is a consignment item.

    STORAGE BOX – IDENTIFIED – LEATHER AND BRASS

    SKU: 03-108

    $275.00

    PERSONAL STORAGE BOX – IDENTIFIED – LEATHER AND BRASS This is a handsome, Art Deco style, brown-leather box with brass corners and a hinged brass handle on top. The pebbled leather exterior may actually be Moroccan leather, as the leather on the box’s interior has more of a reddish tint. The leather on the box’s exterior exhibits some slight wear and scuff marks, although a treatment with a good leather conditioner should alleviate the worn look. The box itself is very sturdily built and in excellent shape. Its dimensions are 4 ½” x 8″ x 11 ¾.” Each brass corner fixture is outlined with a tooled, Art Deco design, which is repeated around the center-placed handle. The handle is inscribed with its owner’s name, “Christ.n (abbreviated for Christian) Bove,” in black German Fraktur script. The handle is hinged so that it can fold down against the box’s exterior. The box’s front sports a fine brass lock, which unfortunately lacks a key. The lock itself appears to be in working order and the hinges are sturdy. The box’s interior is exquisitely lined with green felt that shows NO wear or tear. It could have held important papers, men’s toiletries or any number of other treasures.

    STORAGE BOX – KAISERLICHER YACHT CLUB PRIZE PLAQUES

    SKU: 03-97 XES

    $895.00

    STORAGE BOX – KAISERLICHER YACHT CLUB PRIZE PLAQUES The Kaiserliche Yacht Club was one of the forerunners of the Kiel Yacht Club. Known also as “Küz” from its acronym KYC, it was a prestigious yacht club located in the harbor city of Kiel, Germany. German Emperor Wilhelm II, his younger brother Prince Heinrich of Prussia, and Alfred Krupp were among its members. The club was famous for the sailing events it organized, including its role in the first Kieler Woche regattas, an event that still takes place yearly in the Kiel Bay. (It is the largest sailing event in the world). The club’s origins are in the “Marine-Regatta-Verein” (Regatta Union of the Navy), a club for Kaiserliche Marine officers founded in Kiel in 1887. The Marine-Regatta-Verein specialized in yacht racing. Prince Heinrich of Prussia, a yachting enthusiast, was its patron. In 1891 the club allowed civilians in and Emperor Wilhelm II became its commodore, bringing his own yacht Meteor I (the former Thistle) to the club’s marina in Kiel. That same year the club changed its name to “Kaiserlicher Yacht Club.” At the time of World War I the club house was transformed into a Lazaretto (a quarantine station for maritime travelers). Four hundred fifty-five members of the Kaiserlicher Yacht Club died in the war. After these difficult years the club almost went bankrupt. It barely managed to survive. The Kaiserlicher Yacht Club retained its name even after the Treaty of Versailles that brought the German monarchy to an end.…

    TOBACCO BOX – ERA 1750 – 1775 – FREDERICK THE GREAT’S TIME

    SKU: 03-87

    $750.00

    TOBACCO BOX – ERA 1750 – 1775 – FREDERICK THE GREAT’S TIME This is a highly unusual, detailed metal tobacco box from 1750 to 1775, during Frederick the Great’s (Friedrich der Große) reign. He was the first of the well-known Prussian kings, the man who set Prussia (later Germany) on its course toward a greater role in European politics. The brass box measures 6 1/4″ x 1 3/4,” and weighs 6 ounces. The box is hinged. The box’s top depicts the Prussian Army at battle. Part of the battlefield is labeled “Prussian Armee,” while the other section is labeled “Schwerin’s Armee.” It is all dated 6 May 1757. To the left is a description of the action in which the Prussian Army vanquished the Austrians. To the right, the King of Prussia and his (period) military commanders are listed. The box’s bottom reveals a scene where mounted generals looking down at a battle in a valley. The date, 31 July 1760, and the battle’s name are mentioned. The wording on the top and bottom has faded somewhat from age. The box’s bottom half has some damage to one corner, where a 3/4″ portion of the metal trim is missing. This is an amazing piece that depicts Germany’s military history of more than two-hundred-fifty-years ago.
