Swastika Silver Spoons

Wellner is a well known company which was a favorite maker of silverware for Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goring and other leaders of the Nazi movement. Pieces made for the use of high ranking Nazi's were monogrammed, eg. pieces meant for use by Adolf Hitler were monogrammed “AH”. Examples meant for general use or in hotels would simply be marked with the Swastika symbol.

The examples with monograms often sell for two to three times what the plain Swaztika marked Wellner pieces sell for. For unmonogramed examples, comparable sets often goe at auction in the $150.00- $350.00 range. Documented sets that were formerly used by the top Nazi leaders of course sell for the most and often break sales records when they do.
