EAGLE LEUCHTER / CANDLE HOLDER

SUCH CANDLE HOLDER WERE USED TO PAY HONOR TO A FALLEN COMRADE AT NAZI FUNERALS

This extraordinary piece was manufactured by Metallgießerei Benedikt in Lübeck, Germany. The company is long out of business today. It is possibly the type of Leuchter (Candle Holder) that you see at funerals (surrounded by flowers) in which the piece was to “pay honor” to a fallen comrade. Or perhaps in this case a coworker? The base of this unique and 100% genuine candle holder has the following engraving:

"S A Mitarbeiter W. Reichenbach zur Erinnerung an den 4.12. (1935)" plus a signature which we are unable to decipher. We don’t know if SA in this case stands for Sturmabteilung or if it is the abbreviation of a company. We are not sure if the SA had "Mitarbeiter" or only members. The word Mitarbeiter is more like co-worker or staff. Perhaps he died the 4th of December 1935 and had worked for the company from 1905-1935. The way this candle holder is designed it would also fit very well into the Jul-Ecke (Yule Corner), placed on the Yule Chest in the corner of the house where the SS family preserved their family history and Aryan / Germanic traditions.

the engraving on the base reads: "S A Mitarbeiter W. Reichenbach zur Erinnerung an den 4.12. / 1905 - 1935"

we were unable to decipher the signature
