Superb quality Adolf Hitler bronze statue. The statue is the largest I have seen, standing about 20 inches tall including the tiered marble base and weighing in at 14 lbs. The widest part of the marble base is about 7.5 inches. The likeness is extremely well executed, aftfully done, and the details throughout are outstanding. The Führer is wearing not only his usual decorations (1914 Iron Cross I. Class, Wound Badge, and Party Badge) but also his Blood Order with ribbon. The presence of the Blood Order and the brownshirt uniform would indicate the statue likely dates from 1934-36. The statue has a beautiful, warm bronze patina which is appears to be the original finish chosen by the artist. The name of the artist is not known as there is no area for a signature, but he (or she) but it should be researchable with some digging.
Because of the large size, the quality, and the quality of the bronze casting, this statue would have cost a pretty Pfennig during the 1930s. It's likely that only a very small number would have been produced, if even that many. There are many Hitler busts on the market, and a few much smaller statues that are seen once in a while, but this piece is certainly a rarity. The statue shows normal age. As can be seen in the photographs, there is what appears to be a horizontal surface crack or other imperfection to the bronze across the front of the breeches. It may be a stress fracture. In any case, it does not affect the structural integrity of the statue and it's really not very noticeable, but it can be seen.
This sculpture of the Führer would definitely be the center of any political or Hitler collection.
