|THIS IS A WELL MARKED, PARTY APPROVED OIL PORTRAIT OF ADOLF HITLER IN HEAVY ORNATE GOLD LEAF AND WOOD FRAME AND WAS FORMERLY OWNED BY THE NSDAP OFFICE IN BAYREUTH.
This is an extremely impressive, genuine full standing pose oil portrait of Adolf Hitler in full war time uniform that is framed in a heavy, ornate gold leaf and wood frame.
The complete framed portrait item is thirty and one half inches (30 1/2") inches in height by twenty three and one quarter (23 1/4") inches in width. The canvas itself, which is twenty three and one half inches (23 1/2") in height by seventeen and three quarters inches (17 3/4") in width, is mounted in the three inch (3") thick heavy wood frame by a system of ten (10) individual male pegs with slotted heads that protrude from the paintings wooden stretcher. These male pegs, in turn, are held in position by ten (10) round female eye bolts that are sunk into the back of the frame at appropriate spots, that then firmly seat and hold the slotted head of each peg.
At the top back center of the wooden stretcher is a brass metal plate, two and three quarters inches (2 3/4") in width by one and three quarters inches (1 3/4") in height. Engraved on this brass plate in four lines of text is the inscription "REICHSEIGENTUM - N.R 29B - BAYREUTH - NSDAP" which denotes that the painting was cataloged and originally belonged to the NSDAP office in Bayreuth, which of course is also famous for its annual hosting of the annual Wagner music festival in Bavaria.
Above this plate on the frame itself is a circular sticker in red and white color with a fluted edging that bears a party eagle and swastika with the designation "Reichsfinanzeurwaltung" (Reichs Finance Ministry).
Directly opposite this sticker on the bottom of the lower frame arm is a blue and white colored sticker bearing a Bavarian State coat of arms.
On the back of the canvas itself, is a six and one half inch (6 1/2") long by four and one quarter inch (4 1/4") wide paper sticker which in eight lines of text bears the designation:
- HAUPTAMT DER NAT. SOZ. DAP
- GAU BAYREUTH - NR. 16 PARSIFALPLATZ
- PARTEI KREISS NR. 40 - GAU NR. 17
- Gerate Nr. 29B

While the painting and frame exhibit expected age and minor dings, both are still in good condition and would be the center piece of any German World War II era collection.
