1936 OLYMPIC COMMEMORATIVE SOUVENIR TORCH
Official souvenir torch manufactured for the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, famous for its revival of the torch relay as well as American Athlete Jessie Owen's triumphant record-breaking victories. The torch has a bronze-colored finish, the torch handle is embossed with a German eagle clutching the five Olympic rings, with text below reading 'Fackel Staffe Lauf Olympia - Berlin 1936,' and a map showing the route of the relay from Olympia, Greece, to Berlin, marked with the names of major cities. The base of the torch is marked 'D.R.G.M. 1370664' and with the maker 'Lindner & Maak Dresden N.15.' Showing a welding seam on the underside of the top wax guard. Loss and scratches to patina, 6.5 x 3.5 inches, with a 2-inch base. A nice copy of the larger original torch.
