    I think it definately European made and probably what collectively called Art Nouveau which was popular between 1890 to 1910. A few details below..

    "Art Nouveau was popular in the Nordic countries, where it was usually known as Jugendstil, and was often combined with the National Romantic Style of each country. In Norway the Art Nouveau was connected with a revival inspired by Viking folk art and crafts. Notable designers included Lars Kisarvik, who designed chairs with traditional Viking and Celtic patterns, and Gerhard Munthe, who designed a chair with a stylized dragon-head emblem from ancient Viking ships, as well as a wide variety of posters, paintings and graphics.[37] Other examples include the Skien Church (1887–1894) and Fagerborg Church in Kristiania (Oslo) (1900–1903)."

    But when you search for the work of those artist you mention you ll see the style is very different.

    Yes, but this panel may be a later adaption of the style, perhaps in the 1920's. I think Big Ned may be close when he points out the dragon boat actually looks like an Eagle boat, even the oars look like feathers. So is this a German adaption with a nod to the Nordic influences in Art Nouveau. Really should be take it to an art expert to see.

    Doesn't it appear a little a soft as it were for a Nordic representation ?

    also the guy holding the sails, does he appear to have some sort of head scarf on ? Vikings did not wear towels around their heads did they ?

    To be honest, I see no Nordic/Viking elements here, I see no Art Nouveau influence, and I definitely see no SS symbolism.

    Also, I notice that nobody so far has commented on the fact that this isn't an ordinary ship: It's a flying ship.

    Anybody researching the significance of the piece should start by looking for legends/fairytales/folklore featuring flying ships.

    Hence, feathers for oars.
