Original WWII Era German Platterhof Hotel Silver Serving Dish Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The Platterhof Hotel was built by the Nazi Party to house visitors waiting to see Hitler. The hotel was located a short distance from Hitler’s mountain residence, the Berghof. The Platterhof Hotel was used by the US Army until about 2005, when it was torn down after being returned to the control of the Bavarian government. As was the case with many of the properties in Hitler’s Obersaltzberg, the Platterhof was relentlessly looted by American soldiers in May of ’45. The Platterhof logo was used on all silver and glassware used at the hotel.  At the base of the server dish  there are some markings, on one side being the producer name “Gebr Hepe” and then  the code “90”. This code normally indicates that the pieces of silver plate amounting to 10%. On the center of the server is the beautiful symbol of the Platterhof. It consists of an oval design which contains a pheasant figure of a woman standing in front of two mountains. The background sky is lined and the area beneath the woman has little flower designs.  Unlike silver eating utensils that had many in a set the 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 or hotel silver opted for the less cumbersome eating utensils. Many times only officers or soldiers with access to motor vehicles carried big trays  and servers home. 100% guaranteed to be authentic complete museum documentation (COA) provided. An amazing historical artifact  RARE. Ex Dr. Mark Griffith collection who wrote the book on Adolf Hitler silver and personal artifacts.
