    Default Ladies Brooch-NSDAP or SS

    Just grabbed this at auction and on its way, of course I misplaced the rear photo but marked properly and I guess I will have to get it translated when I can photo it. Its a beauty though and these can be difficult to locate.

    It was pretty much a one looker and I entered a proxy and walked away not expecting to win the piece and never asked for better photos of what it say's. Guess I will have to wait and get it translated which will generally give you an idea if it is NSDAP or SS, but not always. I have several here now and one came with a photo of one in wear, but this is the brooch that actually matches the photo style. Must be a small auction house and got done under my proxy for a change. See it in 10 days and will update the photos and get a translation.

    Sorry for the crappy photo but every time I move a piece, I screw up and end up cleaning glass for an hour.

    I could be wrong , but I think that is the emblem for the 7th SS volunteer mountain div. Prinz Eugen

    You are correct, they did use it but it is an Odal Rune Odal (rune) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and had several connotations and was used by the party and the SS. The link refers to heritage and property which falls under the Erbhof hereditary law, which mirrored British law. The runic symbol itself was utilized in different ways and the key might be in what it says.

    This actually might be a better link Reichserbhofgesetz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Odal rune with feet was the symbol of the Prinz Eugen division, but it was also heavily used by adherents to the Völkisch ideology to represent ethnic Germanic identity. It was used on the 'Erbhof' signs of Aryan farmsteads as well as other things, like the jewelry item in this thread. There is rarely a concrete SS connection, but most or all of these items bear a strong association with Germanic nationalist ideology.

    Ajax, it's a really nice brooch. I really like it!

    Ty Rune, Sig Rune, Hagel Rune, and Odal Rune.... References to land and holy it would seem. Nice though and as usual who knows if SS. But tough to find.

    Yes, I own that one too with the picture. This is actually the style of brooch she is wearing in that photo. These are not badges and it seems some think that. I will go over the thread again later. ;o)

    Look forward to better pics. Should be easy to translate the rest, once better pics are provided.
    Looks like it says 'handmade' in German on the back.
