The Office of Schönheit der Arbeit of the Deutsche Arbeitsfront (DAF or German Labor Front) decided what constituted kitsch (trash) in Adolf Hitler's Germany and what constituted good industrial design. This simple but elegant style was considered to be the classic form by the DAF, and firms that produced it were allowed to use the MODELL DES AMTES SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT cogged wheel and swastika logo as a seal of approval.
The essential form was almost always the same and the color was almost always entirely white. The reddish-brown stripes found on these pieces denote the upscale version of the pure white basic design.
Offered for sale here are both styles of original Nazi German eggcups, each well-marked with the MODELL DES AMTES SCHÖNHEIT DER ARBEIT (based on the Model from the Office of Beauty of Labor of the Deutsche Arbeitsfront or German Labor Front) cogged wheel and swastika logo on the bottom. Each has a 2.5 mm (3/16 inch) reddish-brown stripe around the edge. One eggcup is attached to a 118 mm (4-5/8 inch) saucer, the other one is 55 mm (about 2-1/8 inches) tall.
Both of them are in very good condition, no cracks, no chips, no crazing. There is a small, common manufacturing defect in the glazing on the rim on the bottom (the part is sets on) of the saucer which in no way detracts from the appearance or value of this unusual piece.
