Rare relic from the Third Reich, a very large oakleaf wreath manufactured from paper and wire with Nazi flags in original condition. The large wreath has a diameter of circa 30 inches when assembled and a height of circa 36 inches, 6 NSDAP Party paper flags are suspended from the wreath, each 4.75 x 8.75 inches. The wreath features a small snap button to attach the ends together. The paper flags are attached by cloth strings and the wreath itself is suspended by four green strips of crepe paper that meet at the ends and feature a loop to attach it to a ceiling hanger. It has the typical characteristics of similar mass-produced patriotic merchandise from the Third Reich, fine details and labor intensive assembly by hand. A fascinating item.
