Item 1090  WW1 German black enameled mess kit

        

This is my favorite of the many variations of WW1 German mess kits. Remember the 1930 version of "All quiet on the Western Front"? The scene where the company is going to the cook to receive rations and then they get double the rations because only half of them survived the recent stint in the trenches. Well when the scene begins, the men start to line up and Albert Kropp tosses his mess kit onto the bench and tells the cook to fill it up.....That mess kit is exactly this variant; black enamel.

But anyway... The condition is excellent with only the most minor chipping. Clean inside with NO leaks or holes. This mess kit has no date or maker mark. (None of the black ones ever do) price $200.00

Item 1091  WW1 German painted enamel mess kit

        

This mess kit was produced by an enamelware maker that did not possess the proper pigments to mix with the enamel emulsion in order to produce a feldgrau colored kit. So they made them in traditional blue and then painted them in feldgrau paint. This example has 95% of it's paint remaining. No dents, cracks or leaks. perfect for display or use. $190.00
