Product Description: This Swastika Finial Pole Top Small measures 3-1/2 inches tall, and 2-1/2 inches wide. It is a quality piece, made of a substantial brass alloy that has been finished with thick nickel plating, of which about 98 percent is still present. This Third Reich pole top design features a bold-looking, cut out swastika emblem within a circle, with a socket fitting at the bottom for affixing it to a pole. It appears to have seen use, with some scratches and marks to the shiny nickel plating. The flat metal swastika emblem has a slight bend, and the socket is slightly out of round; this could probably be bent back into shape but we have left it as found. This Swastika finial pole top small is an attractive display piece, and remains in excellent condition.
Historical Description: Virtually all of the myriad military, civil, political and paramilitary uniformed organizations in existence during the Third Reich had their own flags and standards as part of their organizational regalia. The flags were carried in parades and rallies. In addition to the special flags, most organizations had special pole tops specific to that group, to further distinguish their unique standards. The pole tops often bore either National eagles, organizational emblems, or typical Third Reich patriotic motifs. The emblem would be atop a sleeve into which the flag pole (generally a wood pole with a black finish) would fit. These were designed to be visually impressive pieces of regalia, and, are often very eye-catching. Most Third Reich pole tops did not survive the war or its aftermath.
