PATRIOTIC LARGE WOODEN PLATE
Patriotic hand-carved traditional wooden bread plate from Gau Westfalen-Nord.
Such plates are cultural items popular before, during, and after the Third Reich, although this one is clearly from the TR period.
Gau Westfalen-Nord was an administrative division of Nazi Germany encompassing the Free State of Lippe, Free State of Schaumburg-Lippe and the northern half of the Prussian province of Westphalia between 1933 and 1945.
It was presided over by Gauleiter Alfred Meyer.
The dedication around the rim reads "Gau Westfalen-Nord, Alles fur Deutschland, Alles fur Adolf Hitler", while the centre bears the iconic emblems of the region which date back to Imperial times.
A very well made and visually appealing item with outstanding details!
