Product Description: This Hindenburg Plate is an appealing piece of art. It’s made of white metal. The front depicts Hindenburg in profile, in civilian clothes. This profile is at the center of a textured round field. The outer rim of the plate is smooth. The recesses of the texture in the central field retain original darkening, which contrasts nicely with the bare white metal of the Hindenburg profile. The profile is nicely detailed, and a good likeness. The outer rim shows some age patina. The reverse of this Hindenburg plate has original dark finish. It’s maker marked “Neuhoffnungshütte,” indicating manufacture by the iron works near Sinn, Germany. The reverse of the plate is semi-hollow, with the profile visible in reverse. There is an integral loop at the top of the reverse for hanging it on a wall. Overall, this Hindenburg Plate is in excellent condition.
Historical Description: European artisans of the 19th and 20th centuries created countless artworks with military and political themes. Some of these were connected to specific military, political, civil and paramilitary organizations, while others were commercially available pieces that anyone could buy. These art pieces took countless forms, from busts or statues of military leaders, to sculpted wall plaques, fine art paintings, fine porcelain, and every other kind of art in use at the time. Some were unique, custom works of art; some of these were made as presentation pieces. Others were mass produced as decorative or souvenir items; catalogs filled with all kinds of such mass-market items were produced by a number of factories. After the end of WWII, artwork featuring military or nationalistic imagery fell out of favor in some European societies. Many pieces were destroyed.
