DescriptionHard silver-plated. The oval plate bears the national eagle with folded wings over "RK" on a raised border, on the bottom the manufacturer's stamp "Wellner" - "120", dimensions 64 x 42.5 cm. Lot includes the very rare draining insert bearing the national eagle, "RK"-monogram and manufacturer's stamp "Wellner" - "36". Matching cloche showing a national eagle with somewhat broader, spread wings, well-known from Hitler's personal silverware, also with "RK"-monogram for the Reichskanzlei. The movable handle is stamped "NS WMF 50", the inside of the cloche is struck "Württ. Metallw. Fabrik Geislingen-Steige" (tr. Württemberg Geislingen-Steige Metal Work Factory). Dimensions ca. 55 x 33 x 13.5 cm. Light signs of age and usage. To our knowledge, the WMF was entrusted with the production of the table silver before Wellner. After the construction of the Neue Reichskanzlei, Wellner received the new commission and produced Hitler's table silver. Very rare set in fine condition.
