    I agree with Henrik. Looks like a souvenir. As to whether it dates from the period I couldn't say as it's the first I've seen. .

    Ob es sich um ein Original der Zeit handelt kann ich auch nicht sagen.
    Aber ein schönes Motiv auf jeden Fall.
    Gefällt mir gut.

    Handkerchief Taschentuch

    I think that we would have seen more of these if they were fakes. I think it is period and probably made during the time when a lot of smaler companies tried to make money by producing souveniers connecting to the party, which was later forbidden.
    By the uniform worn, one who knows could probably nail down a possible year. The castle in the background may also be familiar to someone. It is not necessarily a fantasy castle. I'd think it is Sachsen or Thüringen. Christian

    I have seen simular cloth like these in the USA .
    During the period from 1900 to the 1930s you could get printed square sized cloth of Baseball Players , Presidents , Indian Chiefs or of someone famous ...... inside select CIGAR boxes .

    Hi Christian, do you have reference material to back this up? that these kind of Souvenir items were later Forbidden?
    I would have agreed with you up until a while back, and IMHO this has somehow come to be the general accepted rule, that after the NS took over, all Nazi-Kitsch was prohibited. I have started to look into this myself, and until now, have only found black & white proof of the opposite ! Lots of the Kitsch did fade away after the NS were in control, but i have yet to find any direct proof that it was actually forbidden after any certain period/date.
