Deutsche Hof Hotel Small Creamer - WWII German
This is a Third Reich era creamer pitcher from the Deutscher Hof hotel. This was purchased from a veteran's estate from a good friend who wrote up a nice presentation paper to add to it. This hotel was a favorite of Hitler's and was actually purchased by the party and used by high ranking officials when visiting Nuremberg. I have seen pieces from this hotel and this is typical of the pattern used there. On the side is "Der Deutche Hof". The ase is stamped "gebr. HEPP 90" The bottom has an engraved swastika and 0.05 P. I beliebe the 0.05. I believe the 0.05 indicates that it holds 1/20 of a liter. Very nice veteran bring back item with an attractive display card already prepared. Condition is excellent throughout with a nice, even patina. Some very minor wear along the rim/base as one might expect from an item that was used. It is not a terribly flashy piece but it is well known that Hitler, who really enjoyed this hotel, preferred modest tableware. Nice item.
