Krupp Berndorf, etc.
Sächsische Metallwarenfabrik August Wellner Söhne AG of Aue i/S. (in the Erzgebirge in Sachsen), Germany was the major designer and producer of the most popular line of Alpacca, silver plated Alpacca and other silver service or table service items in Nazi Germany.
Wellner made a large assortment of items under the Original Wellner trade name from tea pots to flag stands and serving trays to matchbox holders, and they made them for Hitler, his Reichschancellery in Berlin, for paramilitary organizations like the SS, for the Hitler Youth, the Wehrmacht and the Nazi Party among others. They sold via agents and from their own showrooms around the world and all over Greater Germany.
