LONDON - A water-colour by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler has been sold at auction in Britain for 5,200 pounds (7,700 euros), it was reported Thursday.

The picture of a German postman, painted by the future Nazi dictator in 1924, went under the hammer at Jefferys in Lostwithiel, Cornwall (southwest Britain), on Wednesday.

Auctions manager Ian Morris said the rare signed example of Hitler's early artistic career went to a private local buyer.

The 15 by 17 centimetre drawing from Hitler's sketch book had earlier belonged to a British collector.
