VERY RARE PRUSSIAN LANDPOLIZEI BATTALION STANDARD WITH STREAMERS AND POLE TOP
This is a very rare Prussian Landpolizei 4' X 4' Battalion standard, complete with streamers and pole top. Only perhaps 50 of these were originally bestowed on Prussia's State Police units in the early days of the Third Reich; in fact, the design of the flag is very closely modelled on the regimental standards of the old Imperial Prussian army.
Possibly 5-7 of these flags survive in the market place today. At the time when this flag was consecrated, Hermann Goring was the head of the Prussian police, and when the Hermann Goring Regiment of the Luftwaffe was established, the Landpolizei Battalion standard was used as the basis for the Regimental standard.
The 2nd and 3rd battalions of the HG Regiment trooped flags identical to this one but the 1st Battalion standard has a small "Southern Cross" on a shield embroidered below the central eagle.

The streamers are black and tarnished silver and are possible made from two that have been sewn together, as there is a seam joining the ribbon in the middle. The literature describes the regulation streamers as being green and silver, and these streamers may in fact be a hold-over from an earlier (Weimar or Imperial) standard- they are in the Prussian state colours.
The pole top is a hollow cast variety, and is correct for this flag- it is a rarity in and of itself.

This is a gorgeous and rare flag of the most amazing quality!
There is another specimen of this flag currently for sale, without streamers or pole top, for 55K.

"NUREMBERG" EAGLE AN IMPRESSIVE SMALL VERSION OF KURT SCHMIDT-EHMEN'S FAMOUS EAGLE FROM THE REICH PARTY DAY GROUNDS IN NUREMBERG
Offered for sale is a very nice original example of a Third Reich Nazi eagle table decoration.
There were a variety of Hoheitsadler (official NSDAP term for the Nazi eagle) that where mounted on every official building or place of significance for the Nazi Party.
The table decoration that is offered here is a very detailed gold plated copy of the huge eagle at the Luitpoldarena on the Nuremberg Reich Party Day Grounds by sculptor Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, one of the most talented sculptors in Nazi Germany.
The eagle is 255 mm (about 9 3/4 inch) tall including the stone base, it has a wingspan of 150mm (about 6 inch).
This gold Nürnberg desk eagles was probably a more expensive variant; the details are outstanding and the gold finish is mostly intact even after nearly 70 years.
The eagle is mounted on a low-base made of white/grey coloured marble.
The vast majority of these eagles are found with a bronze or silver finish, this being the first example in gold that we have had the opportunity to acquire.

"NUREMBERG" DESK EAGLE
Nuremberg Desk Eagle Variation.
This scarce style of desk eagle is one of the more striking variations, with the eagle standing on a square, un-wreathed swastika and holding its wings back rather than straight at its sides.
The eagle itself is of typical construction, being moulded of dull grey alloy, then brightly silver-plated and varnished.
Where the finish has worn off, the eagle has taken on a tarnished tone.
This specimen is mounted on a two-tiered cream marble base, which at one time had an engraved plaque on the lower portion, and a wreathed swastika on the upper portion (the holes and outlines from these mountings remain).
The eagle has been rotated for display purposes, leaving these marks on the reverse.
The eagle is 240 mm (about 9 1/4 inch) tall including two step stone base, it has a wingspan of 125mm (about 5 inch).

The eagle is 200 mm (about 8 inch) tall including two step stone base, it has a wingspan of 178 mm (about 7 inch).

It is the first and only example of this type of eagle that we have seen in the flesh.
