GERMAN AMERICAN BUND

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY

Offered for sale is this original set of two nickel plated, collapsible candle holders that we believe come from the German American Bund, the German-American Pro-Nazi organization that consisted only of American citizens of German descent. The main goal of this organization was to promote the National Socialist Germany of Adolf Hitler. It was founded in 1936 and dissolved in 1941, after the USA were at war with Germany. We assume that these candle holders were used when a local chapter met and disassembled and stored in this hand dovetailed wooden box. That way they could be hidden and still used when they had secret meetings, even after the organization was dissolved but plenty of Nazi symphazizers in the United States for sure still met in secret. The lid got lost over time and has replaced by a piece of plywood, the rest is all original. When assembled, the candle holders stand 570mm or 22-3/8 inches tall and the 'wingspan' is 360mm or 14-3/16 inch. Most of the nickel plating is still present, only normal signs of wear.
