    Got this little cup, saucer and creamer from the son of a vet. He said his father picked them up in Berchtesgaden. I've included two other photos. Does anyone recognize the building or the statue? Thanks in advance for any help given.

    Cup/saucer reflects a figure with traditional wear/Tracht as its called in German - it looks like the Bavarian Tracht. As to the pictures, the statue(unknown figure) is holding a wine Becher(Cup) ,Dont believe its Bavaria or Berchtesgarden , the house looks like its a Gastehaus - a close up of the sign in front would help.

    You know I heard one time if one could assemble all the pieces of the alledged True Cross of Christ you could build a bridge from New York to Rome! If I have seen one I have seen 5000 cups and saucers that belonged to Hitler,Did he have a place setting for 50,000 folks.I think all of the vets that brought back china thought they had the real thing,but I doubt if there are many REAL peices around.

    I don't really think that there is any way to tell, looking at these cups. Probably it was just another story.

    Hi, the logo on side of cup is a typical city logo for Berchtesgaden. I was stationed there 83 to 85 and I took alot of pics! Dont remember that building though. Could be pre-war pics of things that are long destroyed! And by the way, a great place to be stationed!!!
