Description
Adolf Hitler's Desk and Chair from his Munich residence Prinzregentenplatz 16/II. A gift from Mrs. Elsa Bruckmann "Romanian Princess Cantacuzene" in 1929. The rectangular desk is made of massive oak and has a leather writing surface inset into the center. There is a drawer on each side with each latch inscribed with the makers name M. Ballin. Below are two doors, behind the right hand door there are three drawers. Behind the left hand door is empty but shows evidence of separators at one time. There is an iron plate screwed to the bottom for a safe. Each door has hammered iron handles with rings. The desk is all original condition. Showing normal patina from age and use. The matching desk chair is made of oak with brown leather seat and backing. The chair shows normal patina from age and use. Both desk and chair bear the manufacturer's labels "Mobelfabrik M. Ballin Kontor Und Verkaufsraume Promenadepl 7" and typed above is "Kontor A. Hitler. Prinzregentenpl 11/16 2 Nov 1929". And there is another label on the desk that reads "M. Ballin Munchen Promenadepl 7 Hof Mobilfabrik". Both pieces of furniture were confiscated by the United States Army and are stamped "US Property" and "United States Forces European Theater Headquarters". Included is a letter from the former Royal Bavarian Court Furniture Maker M. Ballin, Munich, of November 2, 1929 to "Mr. Adolf Hitler, Author" notifying him of the completed office furniture commissioned by Mrs. Privy Councillor I.H. Bruckmann and signed in ink "M. Ballin". Mrs. Bruckmann was born the Romanian Princess Cantacuzene. She introduced Hitler into Munich society and did everything she could to help his rise to power including offering him financial support. This simple piece of furniture is one of the most iconic and important items in WWII History. 1930 was a turning point in World History. Depression hit Germany that year and gave Hitler and the Nazi Party an opportunity to gain power and eventually take over the German Government. Adolf Hitler himself sat at this very desk during that time period. One can only imagine the planning and decisions that were made at this very desk. The desk comes with an original receipt from Mobelfabrik M. Balin Dated November 2, 1929 made out to Herrn Adolf Hitler and Written Historical description from Hermann Historica. There is alot of information about this desk online. Its been reported as the Million Dollar Hitler Desk. Desk measures 56" Wide x 31" Deep x 31" Tall and Chair measures 31" Tall x 24" Wide Provenance: Hermann Historica 2003
