A superb large porcelain decorative plate presented by the Reichfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler as a personal gift for the Julfest celebrations of 1943.The plate has a central design of a large eagle clutching a sword and with an inscription which translates as, WE HAVE TO FIGHT OUR ENEMY UNTIL THEY SURRENDER, and with a sun wheel swastika. The reverse side features the Allach manufactures mark of the SS runes, and with a patriotic historical dedication from Frederick the Great. The Allach porcelain factory was owned and controlled by the SS and it was situated near Dachau which is a few miles from Munich. The factory produced fine quality Porcelain items, some of which was commercially sold but the more important items were produced for Himmler who then presented much of it to his SS membership and to Important people which he hoped to influence. The plate is in almost mint condition with just a few small age scratches but which are very minor and hardly worth mentioning. [Condition: Near Mint]
