The exhibition ‘Deutsche Künstler und Die SS‘ – “German artists and the SS” (catalogue pictured below) shown in 1944 in Breslau and Salzburg lists exhibit number 589 as ‘Fünf Kacheln gerahmt mit Reitermotiven (Keramik, Porzellan-Manufactur, Allach-Münch.)’. ‘Five tiles decorated with cavalry designs’. This particular design is ‘Dragoner Offizier’, a Prussian period Cavalry Officer.
Archived documents show on July 3, 1944 a personal order is confirmed from Reichsführer SS Himmler.
