N002389 CASED "FUHRER" PLAQUE. (Metallplättchen)

BACKGROUND: The "Führer" plaque was a non-portable award presented in recognition of the achievement of, usually, political officials.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A roughly 9.5cm x 14cm, cast bronze plaque, within its original black leatherette-covered wooden case. The case, which is divided along its sides, has dual hinges along its top edge, and a swiveling latch and stud is along its bottom edge. Upon opening it, its interior top is padded and covered in what is presently off-white satin, which extends to form a covering over its hinges, and its interior base, which is covered in velvet, has a depression to it into which fits the plaque. To the obverse of the enclosed plaque is the profiled view of Adolf Hitler. The artist’s or designer’s initials may been to the lower right of the portrait, and underneath it is embossed, "‘Die Voraussetzung Zur Tat Ist Der Wille Und Der Mut Zur Wahrhaftigkeit’" (The Supposition For Action Is The Will And The Courage For Truth), with a mobile swastika beneath that. The portrait, quotation and swastika are more bronze-colored than the dark background that they are set against. To the reverse, a hanging hook is to the hollow back of the portrait.
