Adolf Hitler’s Formal Silverware Reference Catalog – WORK IN PROGRESS

The Adolf Hitler Silverware Reference Catalog is an attempt to document/consolidate Hitler’s known silverware pieces used in his formal silverware service.  The reference guide was created after hearing countless requests from collectors looking for a comprehensive silverware guide.  There is very little documentation of his silverware service, so we are making our best attempt to be historically accurate by collaborating with a team of global collectors/experts.  As pieces surface, they will be cataloged in this guide.

The flatware pieces were made by the Bruckmann & Söhne company and given to Hitler for his 50th birthday in 1939.  It is known that the silverware and flatware were distributed among the places Hitler frequented the most: the Berghof (Hitler’s Mountain home); der Kehlstein (Eagles Nest); the Gasthaus (Guest House) at Obersalzberg; the Braune Haus (The Brown House); the Prinzregentenplatz apartment in Munchen; and the Reichskanzlei in Berlin.
