Got today this nice little convolut from one househould and baught it together with a nice "Mein Kampf".
Large brooches were mass produced struck ones from brass. The open work one is gold with white enamel and a very interesting construktion.
Ring is silver and 3 piece.
Necklace is, i think so brass, rests of gold plating and it seams it was made longer with some not exact fitting swastikas.

Opinions are welcome.
More pics These days.

Odal u manage to find the darn nicest pieces! The hammered brass swas brooch is stunning, along with the sunwheel... Yes that enamel swas! That's gotta be rare, how beautiful! The ring and necklace are also very nice pieces I wonder if this was a higher ranking party members wife's items? No doubt they were prime jewelry for the socially fashionable nazi wife (with money and position!) back then? And a mein kampf? That's a solid jackpot,G�tz! Nice find!!

The Highlight. Brooche number 3, gold and white enamel.
Made from at least 13 pieces. The solder seems to be a Kind
of rose gold.
Maybe our friend hapur can explain the reason for such
complicate assembling.
The only "fault" i found are the not perfect content and
makers marks. They "doubled" while punching in.
To make this little artwork better visible i played with the
light of the pics.

Thanks friends!

Would be fine to find out the maker of this brooches, thanks for looking Andy.

G., of course more pics of necklace and ring are coming laugh
In the case of the gold brooche i think i have to take a closer look at the markings, would be fine too to know the artist.

Here the necklace:

And the simple and unspectacular ring. Rests of the content mark are still outside the band:

I think that's a very elegant piece, actually- tasteful (well, as tasteful as wearing a swastika can get, I suppose) and simple but refined. This was a lady with class taste position power money... Maybe she was older too since her hubby may have been an alter parteig member from the early 20s? So he's a higher up like gauleiter or something? (Just a theory)

I have seen the 2 swas broaches before,,very nice..

I notice the necklace has a few different swastikas.. Maybe they wanted a certain length but ran out and use a different pattern at the ends to finish it off. When worn you wouldn't see them..
The gold tone and white enamel is a work of art! A super piece!

The ring is nice. Split band. 3 piece construction, clean and neat,,really really nice pieces you got there G.!!

I can only guess. For me there might be two reasons to go this way. First is there was base die to make enamelled piece to cut it out for different top pieces.
Second reason could be enamel. In many cases enamell will crack after firing if there is too big base metal piece because of different cooling speeds of metal and enamel and different thermal expansion coefficient.


There are less original rings than you think, much less...

Very nice selection of items.

I have had one of the brooch styles for some time and have not noted that many of them around. Always thought to see one in a period picture.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice, especially the necklace and gold swas. The 2 brass swastika brooches are very common. I have both of them. The larger one is shown in a militaria of the Third Reich color book whose exact title escapes me, but I do have the book somewhere. Nice finds!

Odal, the caption says: "Tie clips and a necklace for the Party faithful. Black, white, and red or the swastika are the dominant theme."

Gaspare, yes this is one of Lumsden's books - Regalia of the Third Reich
