  • Pre war 1934(!) dated M31 canteen marked HRE 34


    1934(!) dated canteen with all parts marked HRE 34 indicating production by Heinrich Ritter, Esslingen in 1934! One of the earliest canteens I’ve seen which is sadly missing the drinking cup. Very hard to find pre 1936 dated Wehrmacht equipment, especially in good condition!

  • Pre war black aluminium M31 canteen cup marked FWBN 37


    Textbook M31 canteen cup marked FWBN 37 which indicates production by F.W. Brockelmann Aluminiumwerk GmbH KG, Neheim/RuhrOne of the bales is missing!

  • Late war M31 canteen marked AEMA 43 with enameled cup


    Excellent late war produced M31 canteen in configuration with an enameled cup. This canteen comes in a very interesting and unusual but still matching configuration! The flask itself is the M31 pattern constructed out of aluminium and the cup is a typical late war steel enameled type based on the steel M42 pattern canteens. Both the cup and flask are marked AEMA which indicates production by Annweiler Email-u.Metall-Werke in 1943. This is the first time I have ever seen this combination and this is for sure a rare and interesting canteen!

  • M31 canteen Hungarian POW art


    Interesting early M31 canteen which has been turned into an art piece. Sadly the cup and flask aren’t matching but they seem to be together for a long time! Interesting is the HRE 1935(!) marked flask which indicates production by Heinrich Ritter, Esslingen in 1935. The aluminium flask itself is simply changed into a colorful art piece! The design is very interesting and colorful. The art piece is dated 7-2-1946 and marked “Emlék Salzburgból” which is Hungarian and would translate to “Memorial from Salzburg”. Most likely done by a Hungarian POW (prisoner of war).

  • Brownish bakelite canteen cup marked gfc 1941


    Beautiful brownish bakelite canteen cup in a good used condition without any damages. The cup is nicely marked with the 3 letter code gfc which indicates production by Julius Posselt, Gablonz an der Neisse, Reichsgau Sudetenland. The cup is MPD marked with the material S which indicates the usage of Phenolic resin (bakelite) with sawdust as the filler material. Nice cup to complete a canteen or a display!

  • Tropical M42 canteen


    Excellent “tropical” M31 canteen with interesting very light coloured webbing straps. The red painted steel flask itself seems to be unmarkedThe cup is MPD coded F7/K which indicates production by a still unknown maker and the usage of urea resin (which is a certain type of Bakelite) with an organic filler material. Stunning M31 canteen in pretty good condition with interesting straps!

  • Rare(!) orange bakelite canteen cup F7/K

    Incredibly rare original orange bakelite canteen cup. This is a rare opportunity to buy an original orange bakelite canteen cup. This example is beautifully marked with a MPD code which was typical for period produced bakelite items. The MPD code F7/K indicates production by a still unknown maker and the usage of urea resin (which is a certain type of Bakelite) with an organic filler material. The bakelite is still in a very good and rather smooth condition and the material isn’t heavily affected by all the years in the ground except for some black discoloration which in my opinion could be further cleaned. The only damages are some tiny cracks at the top of the cup. Beautiful original and very rare example!
    This cup was found in Berlin recently together with 12 complete and 5 damaged cups. They were dug up underneath remnants of a concrete floor together with other canteen cups and butterdishes. In 15 years of collecting I’ve only found one example for my personal collection: this is only the second time I’ve been able to acquire one. I have kept 3 cups for my personal collection, other then these there are no other orange cups on the market that I am aware of. Rarer then most Knights Crosses: this is probably the rarest item I have had for sale in the 5 years that has been online!
  • Canteen filling funnel


    A unusual, late war canteen filling funnel. These funnels where used in field kitchens and together with the 5, 10, and 18 liter aluminium “Trinkwasser” drinking water containers to fill canteens. These funnels had the capacity of exactly one standard 0.8 liter canteen. They are wide enough at the top for a 5, 10 or 18 liter drinking water  container to easily poor. It is used by holding a finger underneath the small hole underneath the funnel and then filled to the top. The funnel is then placed above a canteen and the finger is removed. The canteen will be filled quick and without spillage! The funnel is made out of enameled steel like many of the late war canteens. A nice unusual item!
