A nice original piece of field equipment for the Bundesgrenzschutz (BGS), the West German Border Police. This butter or lard ration dish is made from a very hard plastic that resembles Bakelite. It is circa 1950s - 1980s, the post-war dishes take longer to unscrew than the wartime ones so the lid threads determine the age.
Approximately 11 cm or just over 4" in width, 3 and 1/2 cm or 1 and 1/2" in depth. The condition is very good, the colour is a nice marbled effect honey? The only marking is BGS on the bottom.
Postage is included.
