Product Description: This is an interesting and attractive swastika flag pole top, probably a relic of the early days of the Nazi Party. It is unmarked, and was made prior to the establishment of the RZM in the 1930s. The pole top features a large mobile Nazi swastika, probably made of Tombak or another brass alloy, with a heavy plated finish (possibly nickel plated). The swastika sits atop a brass alloy sleeve that would have been used to mount this to a flag pole. This is a visually impressive piece, with a bold design. This early type of swastika flag pole top could have been used on many different types of Nazi flags and standards used at parades and rallies. It shows some age, and some wear, but no dents or damage, and remains in excellent condition overall. This swastika flag pole top is a very evocative early Nazi regalia item.
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.
