Here's the base. It's toned to resemble iron.........sort of like the anodised SS scabbards.

I'm told this is a presentation version of the white kerzenhalter.

Can anyone confirm this?

As far as I can see, only the white one and the white variant with gilded highlights appeared in the Allach sales catalogue. The 'iron' one did not.

The unfinished white porcelain underneath the toning can be seen at the base of each foot.

Robin,

The black appears I believe in the price list and was offered that way along with the white. The only presentation models of this style were the life or child candleholders and I believe I have seen at least one or 2 that were the same style and dedicated as well.

A nice catch just the same and one of the most attractive in my opinion.

Best,

Kris

I'm just back from Berlin where I found this in a little shop selling assorted antique porcelain........

Robin, very nice. I like the darker finish as well as the white--it's a bit more understated and subtle. Just curious--did the dealer know what it was?

I've never found any Allach pieces in an antique store, for example, but have picked up some very nice pieces of Rosenthal and Eschenbach by Prof. K?rner.

Thanks Kris.

I thought the price list only had the white version and the white one with gold highlights?

Yes - the dealer did know what it was, unfortunately. She had about a dozen other Allach items. All hidden away in the market at Friedrichstrasse Bhf on Georgenstrasse.

Robin,

I had to look as I forget sometimes, It is not in the catalog pricelist and the production figures list it in white and color, however color on the list is referred to in the same way as any color figure. #89 comes in close to the end of model choices of 100 in 1939, I suppose it may have been introduced after the catalog was produced and being a 2 year catalog no amendment made?. Useless information really. :)

I have 2 of them in white and always thought they were one of the nicest in design, but Diebitsch had a nice style in his works. When I first started with Allach I thought those were earthenware and when I had one in hand I was surprised to fid it was white porcelain that had been treated.

What other pieces did this woman have? I have not been to Germany yet and always wondered what it might be like to find these pieces in a shop.

Best,

Kris

P.S There were not a ton of these made.

Kris.

From memory, she had:

Large seated Dachshund pup;

Fox terrier;

Munich Maid (Kaerner version);

3 x 'striped' vases;

Elephant (I think);

Horse;

2 x small candle sticks.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
