This cup and Silver spoon were allegedly taken from one of Hermann Goering's homes during the Second World War.

The cup and accompanying spoon is dated 1914

They were brought back after the end of the Second World War and given to me by an Uncle over sixty years ago.


Editor's Comment:
Porcelain cup, decorated with Iron Cross, and silver spoon, both dated 1914. With recent newspaper cutting detailing the looting of Goering's residences in the Second World War.
