WWII German Christmas 1940 Army Infantry Transport Column Unit Stein
A 1/2 liter stoneware stein which, undoubtedly for security reasons, identified the Army unit from which it originated by th unit’s feldpost mailing number rather than by its actual unit designation. The stein commemorates Christmas of 1940 in the unit which was assigned feldpost number 31355. This was an infantry division transport column, specifically “4. Fahrkolonne Infanterie-Divisions-Kolonne 212”. The stein is approximately 5 inches tall and is in near mint condition, without chips or cracks.
