This is a nice silver-plated caffèpot from the famed Der Deutsche Hof Hotel in Nuremberg which was the hotel that Adolf Hitler favored and stayed at when he attended the annual Reichsparteitag rallies. The NSDAP purchased the hotel in 1935, and the silverware and serving pieces were marked with the NSDAP symbol of the swastika within wreath. This teapot is also marked “HOTELBETRIEBSGES.M.B.H” and measures about 16 cm high and the silver finish has a heavy patina. The bottom edge is maker-marked “GEBR. HEPP 90”
The hotel silver called “Hotelbetriebsges.m.b.h (Hotel operating company with limited liability)was used very versatile. Among others at Berchtesgadener Hof and Nürnberg Hof. The assignment can only be done by knowing its origin.
