Bruckmann (Formal Pattern) Silver

Engraved "AH" Monogram Patterns


Bruckmann ("Formal Pattern") Silver Service


The Bruckmann pattern presentation silver, with cast, rolled, or appliquéd monograms has been documented as being in many of Hitler's residences and offices. This pattern appears to have been used by the firms of Bruckmann and FHW exclusively. The monogram features a National Eagle, with the wings folded and displayed. In the talons of the eagle, there is a wreath with a swastika. On each side of the wreath are the initials AH. There appear to be many thousands of pieces made using this pattern. This particular pattern of silver surfaced from all over Germany at the end of the war. It was apparently used wherever Hitler maintained a regular residence or offices where he might be called upon to entertain guests of the State.

Here is some background regarding the Bruckmann (often referred to as "formal pattern") pieces. In early 1939, Adolf Hitler was riding a wave of popularity. Germany had regained the sense of pride and nationalism lost in the wake of their defeat in The Great War. The German economy and the German people had gained a robust growth that was the envy of Europe, and a skill and pride in craftsmanship that was world-renowned.

The firm of Bruckmann, located in Heilbronn, with distributors in all of the major cities, had a long history of providing the finest level of quality and workmanship of any of the other German silver manufacturers. Someone, somewhere, noted that Hitler's fiftieth birthday was perhaps a good time to create a presentation setting to not only rival a gift of Kings, but to surpass any gift ever presented to a world leader. The Bruckmann birthday present was beyond spectacular: the records are sketchy; but there were at least 3,000 discrete pieces involved. Apparently, there were at least seven complete sets of 500 pieces (possibly sets of 600) that were distributed among the places Hitler frequented the most: the Berghof (Hitler's Mountain home); der Adlerhorst (the Eagle's Nest); the Gasthaus (Guest House) at Obersalzberg; the Braune Haus (The Brown House); the Prinzregentenplatz apartment; the Hofbräuhaus in München; and, the Reichskanzlei in Berlin. The service pieces were made of brilliant .925 (92.5%) silver, and the matching tableware, needing to be harder and more durable, were made of 800 (80%) silver. FHW pieces have been documented in 925 and 835 silver content.

The top two photographs shown below were taken in 1946 by a first sergeant assigned to an Army Corps of Engineers unit designated as part of the occupation of Germany following the end of the war.  He was able to acquire a significant number of pieces of the formal and informal patters, and some Wellner AH service pieces during his tour.  The two WWII photos were taken of the items he liberated from the Hofbräuhaus in Munich.  The photo below the WWII photos was taken recently.

The formal and informal pattern flatware is shown on this page. The Wellner AH and Bruckmann service pieces, trays, and coasters are shown separately.

Please note: This particular pattern is subject to availability. Many of the pieces shown in the photograph above are available, inquire for current stock and price.  At the moment, we have the following pieces available in the Formal Pattern:

We have the smaller tablespoon in the informal pattern available as well.
