E-mail me with questions or with pictures of your porcelain for research at thirdreichmilitaria@gmail.com.

Due to the number of requests and the time it takes me to research each request for information on specific pieces of porcelain produced under the direction of the Third Reich, I am now asking for $5 via Paypal for research on up to five pieces of porcelain. What you will receive is information on the branch of the Third Reich that the porcelain was made for, the name of the manufacturer, the date range this manufacturer made the porcelain, and any other information that I can turn up on it. I cannot guarantee information on everything given that some makers are more or less prevalent than others but I will do my best. Please click on the Paypal logo to send payment and send me an E-mail including pictures of the porcelain to include any markings present on it. Thank you.

Maker mark description: Krister Porcelain Manufactory Waldenburg 1939-1945. This particular piece also has an added bonus with its intended location being Breslau at the NSDAP office of Oswald Bucceli. On July 25, 1944 Adolf Hitler declared the city of Breslau (Poland) a Festung (fortress) that was to be defended at all cost. Battle of 1945: The Wehrmacht, aided by the Volkssturm and slave labourers started to convert the city into a military fortress, capable of lengthy defence against a possible Soviet assault. Much of the city centre was demolished and turned into an airfield. On February 13 the Soviet forces laid siege to the city and the battle started. On February 15 of that year, the Luftwaffe started an airlift to aid the besieged garrison. For 76 days, until May 1, the German air force made more than 2000 sorties with supplies and food, more than 1638 tons of supplies were delivered. During the battle in the heavily-bombarded city, both sides resorted to setting entire districts on fire. Finally, on May 6, only two days before the unconditional surrender of Germany in World War II, General Hermann Niehoff, the German commander of the Festung Breslau surrendered the city to the Soviets.

SS Bauscher Weiden 1940 Plate [front] [back]

Waffen SS Platter [top] [bottom] [writing]
-Marked: 1944 Waffen SS KPM Large Platter. Condition: 10. 16" long, 10.5" wide. This type of porcelain was used by the Waffen SS in field camps wherever the SS were fighting and in Waffen SS offices. Maker mark description: Krister Porcelain Manufactory Waldenburg 1927-1945. The word Germany is also printed under the other markings. Some people wonder why Nazi Germany would put the English word "Germany" instead of Deutschland on their porcelain. However, KPM (German porcelain company) made porcelain for countries around the world even during WWII and the Third Reich. They produced pieces with the word "Germany" on it as many of the pieces they were sending out were going to the United States and other English speaking countries. Thus, this one just happens to have "Germany" on it but was issued to the Waffen SS. I have only seen one other SS platter making it extremely rare. This platter is in amazing condition also show minimal wear to the top. Also, this piece of SS porcelain is worth even more because of its identifying marks on the top of the platter that read, "Oberschlesier Stubel Gleiwitz." Gleiwitz was a city in upper Silesia, Germany. Today it is located in Poland. The significance of the city is as follows. The Gleiwitz incident was a staged attack on 31 August, 1939 against the German radio station Sender Gleiwitz in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia, Germany (since 1945: Gliwice, Republic of Poland) on the eve of World War II in Europe. It was one of several actions in Operation Himmler, a German project to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany, which would be used to justify the subsequent invasion of Poland. Much of what is known about the Gleiwitz incident comes from the sworn affidavit of Alfred Naujocks at the Nuremberg Trials. According to his testimony, the incident was organised by Naujocks under orders from Reinhard Heydrich and Heinrich Müller, the chief of the Gestapo. Gleiwitz soon became an Waffen SS headquarters after the Germans took over Poland.

This type of porcelain was used by the Waffen SS in field camps wherever the SS were fighting and in Waffen SS offices. Maker mark description: Porcelain Factory Victoria, Altrohlau circa 1919-1945.

Bauscher Weiden SS Reich Saucer [front] [back]
- Marked: 1940 SS-Reich Bauscher Weiden Saucer. Condition: 9. This saucer hs a 5 1/2 inch diameter. No chips or cracks. It appears to have a chip out of the word "Reich" however this is only the porcelain identification numbers stamped into the piece while it was being made in the factory. So, if you look closely at it in person, you can see the numbers and that it is not a chip or anything. Nevertheless, I have lowered the price on this piece making it a great deal for an SS saucer. This type of porcelain was used by the SS in their mess halls at concentration camps, field camps, city offices, and training camps. Maker mark description: Porcelain Factory Weiden Bros. Bauscher Weiden circa 1920-circa 1948.

DAF Creamer [front] [back]
-Marked: MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 9. About 2 ½ inches tall and 1 ¼ inch diameter.

I have listed these together as that is the way that they were originally found and I did not want to separate them. The mug is very rare and unique. It came from the office of the Reichsleitung NSDAP. The highest level (apart of the Führer himself) was the Reichsleitung which was subordinated only to the Führer. The Reichsleitung included departments of organization, education, personnel, finance, propaganda, and jurisdiction (all these were merged with the respective posts in the government in 1933). The Reichsleitung also included sections for foreign policy, foreign press party censorships, party archives, colonial policy, the Reichstag Nazi faction, and the department of Führer´s representatives for the control of Political and Ideological education of the Party. (Marcus Wendel, Axis History Fact Book) Each office within the "Reichsleitung" of the NSDAP executed definite tasks assigned to it by the Fuehrer, or by the leader of the Party Chancellery (Martin Bormann), who was directly under Hitler himself. It was the duty of the Reichsleitung to make certain that these tasks assigned to it by the Fuehrer were carried out with expedition and without interruption, so that the will of the Fuehrer was quickly and accurately communicated to the lowest Party echelon. (The Nizkor Project, 1991-2005).

On average, 115,000 children are fed each month, 405,000 children will have a vacation by the end of 1937 at an NSV establishment and an additional 1.4 million will spend time in the country. If these 1,900,000 children were lined up in rows of twelve, they would reach from Berlin to Leipzig.” (Randall Bytwerk, German Propaganda Archive)

NSFK National Socialist Flying Corps DAF Gravy Boat [front] [back]
-Marked: Hutsenreuther Selb DAF NSFK National Socialist Flying Corps DAF Gravy Boat. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 10. 3 ½ tall, 6 ¼ diameter from spout to spout. Maker mark description: L. Hutschenreuther Selb. 1920-1967. Green underglaze. Very rare and unique one of a kind piece of Third Reich porcelain. The emblem on the front of the gravy boat is from the National Socialist Flying Corps. The National Socialist Flyers Corps (German: Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps; NSFK) was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that was founded in the early 1930s during the years when a German Air Force was forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles. The organization was based closely on the organization of the Sturmabteilung (SA) and maintained a system of paramilitary ranks closely associated with the SA. A similar group was the National Socialist Motor Corps. During the early years of its existence, the NSFK conducted military aviation training in gliders and private airplanes. When Nazi Germany formed the Luftwaffe, many NSFK members transferred. As all such prior NSFK members were also Nazi Party members; this gave the new Luftwaffe a strong Nazi ideological base in contrast to the other branches of the German military, who were comprised of "Old Guard" officers from the German aristocracy. The National Socialist Flyers Corps continued to exist after the Luftwaffe was founded, but to a much smaller degree. During World War II, the NSFK mainly performed air defense duties such as reserve anti-aircraft service.
I.G. Farben N.W.7 DAF Knife [front] [back]
-Marked: On the top side of the knife is marked the emblem of the I.G. Farben company which is an “I” over a “G.” The back side on the blade is marked “Rostfrei.” On the back of the handle it is marked with the DAF cog wheel and swastika with the letters M.D.A Sch dA. This is the abbreviation of MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Below the IG emblem on the front side of the handle are the markings “Berlin N.W. 7.” The knife has a small hole at the bottom of it from damage over the years. It looks like something 65+ years have pressured the metal apart slightly. Nothing major that takes away from the pice. (Please read entire history to understand the significance of this piece and the following I.G. Farben pieces). IG Farben (short for Interessen-Gemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG) ("Joint venture dye industry") (and also called I.G. Farbenfabriken) was a German conglomerate of companies formed in 1925 and even earlier during World War I. Farben is German for "paints", "dyes", or "colors", and initially many of these companies produced dyes, but soon began to embrace more and more advanced chemistry. The founding of the IG Farben was a reaction to Germany's defeat in the World War I. IG Farben held a near total monopoly on the chemical production, later during the time of Nazi Germany. Before the war the dyestuff companies had a near monopoly in the world market which they lost during the conflict. One solution for regaining this position was a large merger. During the planning of the invasion of Czechoslovakia and Poland, IG Farben cooperated closely with the Nazi officials and directed which chemical plants should be secured and delivered to IG Farben. In 1941, an investigation exposed a "marriage" between Standard Oil Co. and I.G. Farben. It also brought new evidence concerning complex price and marketing agreements between duPont, a major investor in and producer of leaded gasoline, U.S. Industrial Alcohol Co. and their subsidiary, Cuba Distilling Co. The investigation was eventually dropped, like dozens of others in many different kinds of industries, due to the need to enlist industry support in the war effort. However, the top directors of many oil companies agreed to resign and oil industry stocks in molasses companies were sold off as part of a compromise worked out. IG Farben built a factory for producing synthetic oil and rubber (from coal) in Auschwitz, which was the beginning of SS activity and camps in this location during the Holocaust. At its peak in 1944, this factory made use of 83,000 forced laborers. The pesticide Zyklon B, for which IG Farben held the patent, was manufactured by Degesch (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung), a company owned equal 42.2 percent in shares by IG Farben and which had IG managers in its Managing Committee. Of the 24 directors of IG Farben indicted in the so-called IG Farben Trial (1947-1948) before a U.S. military tribunal at the subsequent Nuremberg Trials, 13 were sentenced to prison terms between 1½ and eight years. (The following gives the history behind the “Berlin N.W. 7 markings on the back of the handle.) “The Berlin N.W. 7 office of I.G. Farben was the key Nazi overseas espionage center. The unit operated under Farben director Max Ilgner, nephew of I.G. Farben president Hermann Schmitz. Max Ilgner and Hermann Schmitz were on the board of American I.G., with fellow directors Henry Ford of Ford Motor Company, Paul Warburg of Bank of Manhattan, and Charles E. Mitchell of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. At the outbreak o£ war in 1939 VOWI employees were ordered into the Wehrmacht but in fact continued to perform the same work as when nominally under I.G. Farben. One of the more prominent of these Farben intelligence workers in N.W. 7 was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who joined Farben in the early 1930s after completion of an 18-month period of service in the black-uniformed S.S.” (CHAPTER TWO: The Empire of I.G. Farben. http://www.reformed-theology.org/html/books/wall_street/chapter_02.htm)

“Farben's N.W.7 office in Berlin compiled military and economic data on all countries for the Wehrmacht. This department was staffed with men of recognized ability in all branches of business and science. It was under the direction of Dr. Max Ilgner, nephew of Hermann Schmitz, I.G.'s president, who was known throughout the industrial world as "the master of financial camouflage." Farben had offices and representatives in 93 countries, and no social gathering of businessmen was too small to be covered by an N.W.7 representative, whose reports on market conditions, factory installations, raw-material supplies, and research were transmitted immediately to Berlin and Dr. Ilgner. In the United States, N.W.7 operated through the firm of Chemnyco, Inc., an American-formed subsidiary. Chemnyco sent tremendous amounts of information ranging from photographs and blueprints to detailed descriptions of entire industrial complexes and secret processes.” (Paul Manning, Martin Bormann – Nazi in Exile. http://www.animalfarm.org/mb/2.shtml)

Farben emblem on the front side of the handle are the markings “Berlin N.W. 7.” The spoon is in excellent condition with no damage to it at all. Extremely rare and part of the only known set of three pieces of I.G. Farben silverware left in the world. Most, if not all of the rest of the I.G. Farben silverware and dishes were destroyed by the allies during or after WWII. (Please see the history of I.G. Farben and the N.W. 7 as posted under the I.G. Farben Knife to understand the significance of this piece of silverware.)
I.G. Farben N.W.7 DAF Fork[front] [back]

Farben company which is an “I” over a “G.” The back side on the blade is marked “Rostfrei.” On the back of the handle it is marked with the DAF cog wheel and swastika with the letters M.D.A Sch dA. This is the abbreviation of MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Below the I.G. Farben emblem on the front side of the handle are the markings “Berlin N.W. 7.” Extremely rare and part of the only known set of three pieces of I.G. Farben silverware left in the world.

I.G. Farben DAF Bowl [front] [back]
-Marked: Hutsenreuther Selb DAF I.G. Farben Bowl. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 9. About 9 ½ diameter. Maker mark description: L. Hutschenreuther Selb. 1920-1967. Green underglaze. This is the only piece of I.G. Farben porcelain, connected to the Third Reich, known to still be around. Extremely rare and a very important historical item. Museum quality to say the least. (Please see the history of I.G. Farben as posted under the I.G. Farben Knife to understand the significance of this piece of porcelain.)
Kameradschaftsheim haafe Brauerei DAF Bowl [front] [back] [close-up]
-Marked: Bauscher Weiden Kameradschaftsheim haafe Brauerei DAF Bowl. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 8. Measures 8" diameter, 3 1/4" tall. Maker mark description: Porcelain Factory Weiden Bros. Bauscher Weiden circa 1920-circa 1948. Marked on the inside of the bowl it says, “Kameradschaftsheim haafe Brauerei” This translates to something like a “Service Club Brewery.” In other words, this bowl came from a beer hall in Germany that was frequented by the Nazis, and therefore the DAF had marked porcelain there. So, if you want some Third Reich history along with some good German beer history, this is your piece.
Verlag der DAF Bauscher Weiden Bowl [front] [back]
-Marked: Bauscher Weiden Verlag der DAF Bowl. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 8. About 7 ½ inche diameter. Maker mark description: Porcelain Factory Weiden Bros. Bauscher Weiden circa 1920-circa 1948. Marked on the top of the plate is “Verlag der DAF.” This translates to the “Publishing House of the DAF.” Part of the word “der” is worn away from age, use, and washing. This is a significant piece of history because it comes from the Nazi publishing house that published so many propaganda books to win over the German people. Rare, unique and one of a kind piece of Third Reich history.
DAF WB Stettin Gravy Boat [front] [back]
-Marked: Felda Rhon WB Stettin Gravy Boat. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 10. 3 ½ tall, 6 ¼ diameter from spout to spout. Maker mark description: Porcelain Factory Stadtlengsfeld: 1933-1945. During World War II Stettin was a major centre of weapons industry (including the car production Stoewer). 65% of Stettin's buildings and almost all of the city centre, seaport, and industry were destroyed during the Allied air raids in 1944, and heavy fighting between the German and the Soviet Army (26 April 1945). This is a significant piece of porcelain because it actually survived the bombing of Stettin. This gravy boat is one of a kind and the only one known to still be around from Stettin. I believe this gravy boat came from the Stoewer automobible factory because of the “MW” markings matching part of the factory called motor care, or “Motorwagen.” Here is some history behind the Stoewer company and where this piece came from. Stoewer was a German automobile manufacturer before the World War II whose headquarters were in Stettin. The first company was founded by the Stoewer brothers, Emil (lived 1873 - 1942) and Bernhard (1875 - 1937) in 1896 for manufacturing sewing machines in Stettin a.d. Oder (a former German city at the Oder river delta, south of the Baltic Sea, which is called Szczecin since 1945). In 1899, the Stoewer brothers founded the firm Gebrüder Stoewer, Fabrik für Motorfahrzeugen and started to produce automobiles. With the beginning of the World War II, Stoewer factory started to produce cars for the German Army as LEPKW class (Leichter Einheits-Personenkraftwagen). After the World War II, the Soviet Army seized the remaining production facilities, dismantled them and sent to Russia. The days of car manufacturing in this famous factory were over.

-Marked: Hutsenreuther Selb DAF Iron Cross Mug and Saucer. MODELL DES AMTES/SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT.) “Model of the Office/Beauty of Work.” Condition 10. The Mug is 2 ¾ diameter, 2 ¼ inches tall.

I am selling both together because this is how they were originally found. On the side of the mug there is an iron cross with the letter “W” on the left side and the letter “U” on the right side. Unique and rare DAF mug and saucer.
