Extremely Rare Adolf Hitler’s Personal Silver Double Wine Bucket Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. “We drank Hitler’s Champagne”. One of the rarest of all the Adolf Hitler service silver is the “double Champagne bucket” for 2 bottles to be served together. As far as we know there are only 3 of these that still survive today. Made by WMF or “Wurttenburg Metal Fabrik” most items that were WMF marked were recovered at The Berghof (Hitler’s Home) at Obersalzberg near Berchtesgaden. The silver bucket has an engraved Hitler National Eagle with a Wreath Swastika and Hitler’s personal “AH” monogram on both sides. These were made with both wooden handles like this and more common (but also very rare) metal handles. This is in fact one of the the rarest and the most desirable of all Hitler silver items. This was recovered most likely from the Berghof by a U.S. soldier in May of 1945.  It is in our opinion the best  and most collectible of the Hitler silver. This huge bucket is in good used condition some scratches and smudges. This wine bucket has all the correct maker marks and hallmarks for the piece. The outside surface is bright and polished the bottom and inside has some tarnishing that could be polished if the new owner desires.  Adolf Hitler Silver was the most desirable of all war trophies. Every U.S. soldier wanted to bring home something of Hitler’s. Hitler’s silver was the choice item. Unlike silver eating utensils that had many in a set the large serving pieces where much fewer (and hard to carry). Many U.S. soldiers who where lucky enough to get a hold of Hitler’s silver opted for the less cumbersome eating utensils. Many times only officers or soldiers with access to motor vehicles carried big pieces home. David Webster from “Easy Company” 506 PIR 101st Airborne (Band Of Brothers) wrote an article in the 1950’s about drinking Hitler’s Champagne and it was portrayed in the series “Band Of Brothers”. One of the classic memorable events of the end of WWII. This items was very difficult to photograph because of the bright shine of the silver (it looks much better in person) 100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided. An amazing historical artifact from the  20th century’s most infamous person Adolf Hitler. Do Not Miss this once in lifetime offering!
