TWO RARE ORIGINAL EMBROIDERED NAPKINS FROM NAZI GERMANY'S FOREIGN MINISTER

JOACHIM VON RIBBENTROP

'LIBERATED' IN 1945 BY AN AMERICAN SOLDIER AND OFFERED WITH FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

The 13 x 13 inch napkins are both in mint condition. All they could use is a little ironing. These were bring backs of an American soldier. They then were in the possession of the soldier's granddaughter who sold these to Mark Griffith, author of two books on Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun memorabilia. Our consignor bought these directly out of his collection a few years back.

Ulrich Friedrich Wilhelm Joachim von Ribbentrop (30 April 1893 – 16 October 1946) was Foreign Minister of Nazi Germany from 1938 until 1945. A successful businessman, he was appointed German Ambassador to London in 1936.
Ribbentrop first came to Adolf Hitler's notice as a well-travelled businessman with more knowledge of the outside world than most senior Nazis and as an authority on world affairs. He offered his house for the secret meetings in January 1933 that resulted in Hitler's appointment as Chancellor of Germany. He became a close confidant of the Führer, to the disgust of some party members, who thought him superficial and lacking in talent. He was nevertheless appointed Ambassador to the Court of St James's (for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) in 1936 and then Foreign Minister in February 1938.
Before World War II, he played a key role in brokering the Pact of Steel (with fascist Italy) and the Soviet–German non-aggression pact, known as the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. After 1941, Ribbentrop's influence declined.
Arrested in June 1945, Ribbentrop was tried at the Nuremberg Trials and convicted for his claimed role in starting World War II and enabling the Holocaust. On 16 October 1946 he became the first of those sentenced to death to be hanged, given Hermann Göring's suicide moments before. (source: Wikipedia)
