VERY RARE ORIGINAL SIPPENTRUHE / FAMILY CHEST OF THE

SS-AHNENERBE

THE CENTERPIECE OF THE "SACRED" CORNER IN THE HOUSE

WHERE THE SS FAMILY KEPT THE HISTORY OF THEIR ANCESTORS ALIVE

The size of this incredible item is 1130 x 590 x 560mm or 44-1/2 x 23-1/4 x 22 inch. The Yule Chest is made out of solid wood, contains wonderful, Ahnenerbe related handcarved ornaments and has a weight of approx. 30 Kg (about 66lbs). The so called "Sippentruhe" was the place in which the documents and artifacts of the SS family ancestors where kept for future generations. It was the centerpiece of the so called "Julecke" (Yule Corner), a "sacred" place in the house of the "Aryan" family. The wall behind the chest usually was decorated with a tapestry, also with symbolic ornaments such as the tree of life. On top of the chest stood the Julleuchter (Yule Candle Holder) as well as the SS family book. This outstanding, handcrafted chest was in the possession of the same family who once had it made by a Tischlermeister (Master Cabinetmaker) in the 1930s in Third Reich Germany! It was never in collector's hands and should now find its way into a museum or collection of historical SS-Ahnenerbe material! The ornaments on the chest can all be found in an original Third Reich book, published 1936 by the Ahnenerbe e.V. (see photos at the bottom of this listing)! A one-of-a-kind item, guaranteed to be absolutely original. As can be seen on the photos, the family took very good care of it for more than 70 years!

please note the attention to detail and the craftmanship! All carvings are done by hand!

The book is only for reference and not for sale.

We might be able to find another copy, please inquire and we will do our best to find it.
