Description


Original molded Bakelite topographical model of the Reichssportfeld, the Grunewald sporting complex constructed for the Berlin 1936 Olympic Summer Olympics. The model measures 11.75 x 8.5 x 1 and depicts the sprawling Reichssportfeld grounds and its surroundings; the entirety of the model is set within a raised frame with upper border reading: "XI. Olympiade August 1936 [Olympics Rings] Reichssportfeld Berlin." The model includes its original box, with the inside lid bearing a detailed map of the Reichssportfeld with numbers referencing German, English, and French directories to the right side; these numbers indicate Olympic sites such as the Olympic Stadium, the swimming, hockey, and tennis stadiums, the equestrian grounds, House of the German Sport, swimming pool, the Dietrich Eckart open-air stage, the Olympic Gate, shooting range, and other notable locations. The model is based on the designs of Master Architect Werner March of Berlin, as modeled by Oskar Reich of Berlin, and was manufactured by Berlin's Presswerk of Siemens-Schuckertwerke and sold by Sport-Lüder of Berlin-Spandau. In fine condition, with notable wear to case and map. A particularly uncommon piece of Third Reich Olympic memorabilia.
