DESCRIPTION

Here's something you don't see every day! It's an enameled advertising sign for the Mengele company in Günzburg, Bavaria, for an industrial picker arm for manure handling. Dr. Josef Mengle, scion of the Mengle family, was a notorious concentration camp SS officer who left Germany after the war and emigrated to South America, where he died in 1979. His research specialties were Genetic Diseases and Racial Hygiene, and he was nicknamed "The angel of death". The sign features an illustration of the picker arm assembly and advertising information. There is some enamel loss and surface oxidation, primarily around the edges. Unique and aomewhat macabre display piece.
