    Default Any information on Fritz Best's Hitlerjugend bronze statuette?

    I feel honored to start my posting on this forum with a question concerning a bronze statuette of a Hitlerjugend sculpted by Fritz Best that I recently purchased. It is very similar to a version shown at the HDK in 1942:



    Seppl — The Great German Art Exhibitions 1937 - 1944/45


    I have written the kind folks at the virtual HDK museum, seeking any history or info, but I have not yet received a reply. I thought that someone here might be able to help me.

    LOL! Sorry guys. I apologize for any whiplash caused by cocking of one's head to the extreme right. The photos appeared to be in the correct position on my computer.

    Any info -- including educated guesses -- would be most appreciated.

    By the way -- it is nice to be here. I have enjoyed reading other threads on this forum. The info and opinions are great in this very difficult hobby of war relic collecting.

    Hi Robert, welcome to the forum!

    Not really my subject, but from what I can see, it appears to be a good original item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: I have turned the pics around for you

    Thanks guys! I sent a contact who knows the director of the Fritz Best Museum some of the photos and information. I am hoping that this will be a hot lead! Thanks for all of the help and info!

    It's funny. I had been looking for a statue like this for some years, and it fell into place when I least expected it.

    P.S. -- Thanks Ade for turning my camera's world view back to our own!

    P.P.S. -- I sent the Best Museum a photo of the 1942 statuette. For those who are interested, it is below. It looks like the same model was used as the version in my possession.
