An extraordinarily rare Hitler relic, a delicate etched crystal aperitif glass bearing the Third Reich eagle and swastika device etched thereon, flanked by his initials: "A H". The glass stands 5 1/2" tall and was broken at one time where the bowl meets the stem, but has been simply repaired (though repair has yellowed somewhat). This item was purchased by one of America's most noted collectors of Lincolniana, and an internationally recognized surgeon, from militaria dealers Mohawk Arms, who have over fifty years experience. Provenance, available to potential bidders, includes a copy of Mohawk's 1975 catalog listing which describes their ten-year search for accredited Hitler-owned items, resulting in only 19 items of which this glass is one. They note that the glass, which they claim is one of only two Hitler wine glasses in existence, was recovered at the Berghof, though a news article they refer to is lost. Also present is a copy of Mohawk's 1975 letter to the purchaser and invoice for the glass. Incredibly, the box containing this glass was opened in January, 2009! A true rarity.
