Heavy cut amber crystal Nuremberg glass featuring Adolf Hitler on reverse. This was done in 1938 and was the last year the rally took place before World War 2.
This piece features an intricately hand carved portrait of Adolf Hitler and inscription "Adolf Hitler" on one side and on reverse a carved depiction of Nuremerg and inscribed "Reichsparteitag Nurnberg 1938" beneath. A silver 1935 Reichsmark is sealed at the bottom between two pieces of cut crystal and moves freely throughout the bottom chamber.
Measurements: Glass is 6 1/4" tall and has a 3 1/2" outer rim and 1/4" rim.
Weight: 1 lb 3 oz
Hold: 13-14 oz Glass
A few of the photos were taken with the glass was full. As you can see, this gives the cut glass a very clean and vibrant look.
Believe is that kind of item was commissioned by someone who was in the rally or a avid supporter and a private purchase similar to how someone would purchase a custom souvenir who competed at the Olympic games. Hard to believe this thing is still in such fantastic condition considering what it is. The only visible sign of damage if you can call it that is the slight imperfect bubble under the glass near the AH portrait along with some light abrasions and scratches mainly on the bottom.
Might consider trades for visor caps.
