  • WWI Photo of Balloon Observer in Basket

    SKU: 21-P-373

     Wonderful image of a balloon observer and what appears to be a version of the Spandau machine gun.  He's all suited up and ready to go; he has a rather unusual helmet.  Photo is 7.5x8.25", sepia tone, with a press agency stamp from Underwood on the reverse but press release is missing (remnants remain). Very good.

  • Zeppelin Egg Cup

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-358

     Small and nicely decorated cup, about 2" tall by slightly less in width.  Has a lovely gilt and blue lip ring, company logo with Zeppelin on one side and "W-B" on the reverse.  Bottom has stamp and name of maker "Heinrich".  Excellent condition.  What I really like about this delicate piece is that it has all the proper and lovely markings in one small package.  While the larger pieces of dinner ware are nice, they are very large with small markings.  This has everything in one small piece making it special to display.

  • Clara Adams Promotional Flyer - 1932

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-354

     Four-page 8.5x11" promotional piece for speaking engagements by this famous "First-Flyer".  Produced by her management company and offering speeches by this first woman paying passenger on the Graf Zeppelin, Hindenburg and DO-X Flying Boat.  The flyer is circa 1932 so Clara had not yet flown on the Hindenburg; she is well-known for her promotion of aviation and was the first woman paying-passenger to fly around the world on passenger aircraft.  The flyer has some old tape repairs on the cover and inside.  Surely, not many of these survived so condition is not paramount.
