On the bases are the Swastika-in-cogwhel mark and slogan : 'Modell des Amts : Scoenheit der Arbeit' -
This goes with the fork which I already have ; -
'Schoenheit der Arbeit' ( 'Beauty - or Perfection - through Work' ) was an office attached to the 'Strength Through Joy' organization ( the Nazis loved their slogans ) and was established to approve the style of civil production items to fall in with the 'official line' on creating a clean, modern, utilitarian 'Nazi style' and to render all types of 'decadent art' obsolete.
It's an interesting little sideline in WWII militaria - anyone else have any ?
