    Default Wellner Serving Tray w/ A.H. and Eagle

    Hello to everyone. I'm looking for information on a silver tray made by Wellner. This item was given to me by a friend. I have found the identical tray for sale on another web site, but that in no way assures me it's authentic.

    The tray is 15 3/4 across. On the upper egde on the front, it has been roll stamped with the Eagle and the A.H. initials. The reverse side includes the WELLNER 67 maker mark stamp and the serial number on the edge. There's also a Upper Case "H" stamped on the backside rim.

    Thanks to everyone for your help.

    Regards

    Yes, you would be correct. Snyder's website has the same tray. However, there's many other sources online that discuss Wellner silver that was manufactured for specifically for the Third Reich and this tray along with it's markings seem to be correct. Regardless of Snyder's reputation, it would be difficult to accept that every item on his web site is a fake and that all other identical pieces in the market place would be as well. While I thank you for your opinion, guilty by association isn't too convincing.

    With these pieces as often seen is a genuine tray with added engravings for this reason I stay away from silverware , await other comments re authenticity .

    These pieces are discussed and illustrated in Dr. Mark D. Griffith's book :"Collector's Guide to Liberated Adolph Hitler Memorabilia". Unfortunately, for what it's worth, the book is Co-Authored by...yep...Charlie Snyder. And, for me, that is the poison apple in the barrel. I would avoid these Wellner pieces on the strength of that alone.
