This is an extremely rare Adolf Hitler Formal Salad Serving Fork which measures 8 1/2″ in length.  Condition is excellent.  The fork has the traditional Greek Key pattern meandering around the edges of the handle.  The lower portion of the handle is adorned with a Political eagle with half-open wings. The eagle clutches an oak wreath with swastika. The initials “A” and “H” on the left and right side of the wreath. The backside of the handle is hallmarked with the Bruckmann markings, being a crescent, an Imperial crown, “800”, and a Prussian eagle.  One of the fork prongs has a very slight bend to it that pictures can’t show.  It’s nothing to distract from this beautiful example and can be straightened with little effort.  I won’t touch it because I will not tamper with any artifacts in any way.  The way I find it is the way I sell it.  Hitlers Large Formal Serving pieces are extremely hard to come by and are usually the missing pieces from a serious collection.
