Comments

  1. I got excited about several pieces of jewelry and pottery, but when I saw the swastika match safe, it turned me off. Bad Vibes. It speaks volumes, all negative. Deal breaker. You might want to rethink its display.

    • Dear Cindy:

      The piece is pre-World War I, not just WWII.

      It’s an American sterling piece, and has no Third Reich connections.

      You see, prior to the Third Reich, the swastika was seen in MANY cultures around the world as an auspicious sign — a symbol of birth and death and re-birth by Buddhism, a symbol of firemaking by the Greeks, a symbol of good luck in western Europe, and a symbol of the cycle of life by Native Americans.

      Sorry if you were inadvertently offended by my showing this piece; however, you can rest assured that it’s in no way connected to Nazism.

      Best regards,
      Matt McNeil, ISA CAPP

  2. this emblem was also used as the unit crest for Oklahoma’s own 45th Infantry Division before changing to the Thunderbird emblem. It has great history prior to being used by Hitler.

  3. There are so many stunning antique jewelry pieces in this collection! The watch chain and cameo fob, the beaded purse, and the braided hair chain are particularly exquisite. As for the match safe, with the good luck symbol, Matt, you have it exactly right. Prior to the Nazi’s degradation of this sign, it is fascinating because it appears in the symbolic language of virtually every society and culture back to the earliest written symbols in Sanskrit and Hieroglyphics. I remember having a Kermin oriental rug from the Victorian era that had been my grandparents which had these symbols woven into the design. It became very popular during the Victorian period as a symbol of luck, often combined with 4-leaf clovers, horse shoes and other luck symbols in dress pins and charms. Even as late as the 1920s & ’30s, it was used in advertising and in designs for clubs and groups, like early Coca Cola ads and the Boy Scouts of America. Jewelry and accessories with this symbol are rare finds because when the Nazis usurped it to represent their evil empire, people threw them away or had them melted down for the war effort.

    I will also add that Matt is one person who appears to research everything very carefully. He knows his business and performs it ethically, with both the sellers and buyers interests in mind. He has an excellent support staff and, together, they conduct the most interesting sales with sensitivity and judgement. My health has not allowed me to get to estate sales like I used to, but, when possible, Mr. McNeil’s sales are always first on the list.

    Matt also has a delightfully courageous, and slightly sardonic, sense of humor. I always love to read through these photos to see what will happen this time to the parents of children who won’t take “don’t touch” for an answer. Hee hee hee. 🙂
