Herman Goring Dinner Plate

Herman Goring Dinner Plate

Goringplate

The Reichsmarschall of the German Luftwaffe had entire sets of dinner plates made in the above pattern. This slightly damaged specimen is in the effcts of General (LTC in 1945) Steve Chappuis, the last WW2 C.O. of the 502 PIR. There is slight damage to one edge of this ornate plate, which features wildlife scenes, relevant to Goring’s passion for hunting big game. Note the shield at center, depicting a hand holding a battleax-this is from the Goring family coat of arms and also appears on the silver goblet depicted below.
