Incredible find,  Eric, I'm always amazed on the art during the TR period quality wise and the craftsmanship they did put into it. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful item Erich and thanks for showing it to us all here on our forum.

 

Amber is such a "warm" looking material.

 

I don't have any Third Reich amber items myself, but do collect pieces with insects in it.

 

Best regards

Hi Erich,

 

First of all I have to find back the photos of them.

I didn't succeed today so the hunt in my house continues.

Till now I did only find the stones.

 

Best regards

Thanks for sharing the link to this thread Eric.

 

Here is another amber piece from my collection with silver swastika and lettering. This piece is very early, most likely from the late 20s or early 30s.

Good morning Eric-Jan,

 

I hope you and all your family are keeping very well.

 

Eric-Jan, I currently find myself speechless after seeing this "Truly Superb Amber Collection."

 

I knew absolutely nothing about "Amber," until this moment in time, but after seeing you beautiful collection, I find myself even more disappointed I did not many years ago pursue the collecting of "Amber."

 

Please may I ask you to accept a small "Amber Stick Pin," from me as a gift to add to your wonderful collection of Amber.

 

Eric-Jan, It could not go to a better collector and collection.

 

Please can you PM me, as I wish to send this to you and your beautiful collection.

 

Kindest Regards, 

Les  :thumbup:

Hi Erich,

 

I have seen that type of N.S.D.A.P. amber pieces a couple of times before.

 

Of course all the amber parts are a little bit different in size and color.

 

Thank you for showing your piece.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan
