Description

I have spent many years studying the Deutschland Erwache flag assembly, and have owned several originals.  The one item that is usually missing from displays is the “box” - very seldom preserved from the 1940s.  So many years ago, using my own genuine example as a model, created a museum quality reproduction.  The interior is constructed of a wood frame, exactly like the originals.  On this frame is mounted actual stamped metal obverse and reverse plates that are graphically identical to originals.  The sides are also covered in metal identically to the originals, complete with screws and hooks.  The brass is then plated, painted, lacquered and aged.  I have several “cities” to choose from, and each box takes several months for me to complete.  

A few years ago, I molded a resin reproduction from my original poll top, and located metallic paints that, when aged and polished, are very difficult to discern from originals.  Of course, they are lighter and solid!  Truly, from a foot away, it’s difficult to tell these are not originals.

The example photographed IS available for purchase, but I can also start from ground zero, and produce Feldhernhalle, Berlin, Munich, Danzig, Thuringen, plus several Totenkopf versions (complete with skulls), in addition to the infamous Adolf Hitler.  Feel free to contact me for details, or purchase this example for immediate shipment.  Please note: both boxes pictured in this listing are available.
