Description

Hard 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).
