Fuhrer Standard Tapestry
1 in stock
DESCRIPTION: This is Adolf Hitler’s personal standard re-created in the form of a fine tapestry in full, vibrant color. This was the ensign that was raised whenever the German leader was “the man of the hour” at Reich party rallies, at his massively attended birthday celebrations, riding in his limousine, or at the Olympic Stadium in 1936. When Hitler was aboard, the banner flew on his state yacht, Grille; on the front of his state box at various state and city operas; and, of course, on the majority of his residences; most notably at the top of the new German Reich Chancellery in Berlin. Oddly enough, it did not fly on the Berghof, but it did fly at various hotels on the many occasions when he patronized them during his constant early political travels. Where the Führer would be, there would be his standard! The military eagles represent him as the supreme chief of the Wehrmacht, and the political eagles represent his being the highest executive of the state and nation.
As with our other fine tapestries, this fabulous product the details are superb, the significant colours used are 100 percent like those used in the original. They are 100-percent cotton and prewashed for softness, and are washable in cold water. They are dramatic and awe inspiring, and the artwork is superb!!! (All our tapestries are limited editions.). They are quite large measuring 162cm x 127cm. Plus, there is a 2.5 cm fringe around the four edges. When these great and wonderful wall coverings (Wandteppiche) are hung within a collection, they will make for a very special and vibrantly beautiful centerpiece. An original N.S. period tapestry of this size and quality would cost many thousands of pounds and yet we are offering this for only £275
