Porcelain cup and saucer used aboard the infamous Hindenburg airship which was destroyed in a fire on 6 May 1937. Matching set has official Zeppelin logo reading, ''DEUTSCHE / ZEPPELIN REEDEREI''. Both pieces are a creme color with ornate gold and blue trim. Undersides contain Heinrich & Company stamp with the marking, ''HEINRICH-ELFENBEIN-PORZELLAN''. Beneath markings are the labels that confirm each piece was used aboard the Hindenburg, as opposed to separate sets sold to tourists, ''EIGENTUM DER DEUTSCHEN / ZEPPELIN-REEDEREI''. Cup and saucers not actually used on board are much less scarce and labeled, ''ORIGINAL BORDPORZELLAN DER DEUTSCHEN LUFTSCHIFFE''. The Hindenburg disaster killed 35 of the 97 people on board and marked the end of the airship era. Saucer measures 6.25'' in diameter, cup measures 3'' in diameter. Small chip on lip of cup, otherwise both pieces are in near fine condition.
