German ammo set


#1

I just came from The Military Vehicle Association Spring Swap-Meet mtaswapmeet.us/ in sunny New Jersey. Got this set what the seller said to be an 88mm shell with 20mm drinking cups. All very professionally tooled. The question is: What function does a large shell cup carry in this set if it has a patent primer well which will leak any liquid out?





#2

I would put a plastic bag inside it, fill with ice and chill some schnapps. Maybe whatever performed this function originally is missing?

#3

It’s a salad bowl.


#4

Do the six small “cups” stack inside the single large “bowl”? Perhaps it was made more as a carrier than as a punch bowl.


#5

As per your advice, it is very plausable.


#6

They may even fit better if you were to alternate the cups up-down-up-down around the edge. A nice find, regardless.


#7

The large shell case would of been used as an ice bucket
