Wehrmacht 21cm Mortar special ammunition holder, large cylindrical wooden container with hinged steel lid and base, large stencil. Impressive and unusual. Circa 1942-1943.
Approx. 23 1/4" tall, 9 1/2" diameter. Stencil: "Kart. 21cm Mrs. 18". Wehrmacht weight stencil: "Heeres-Munition ... 22.2kg." Hasp still functional.
Good to very good condition. Steel bottom has rusted almost completely through around the circumference; please be aware that shipment to you, even though packed with our traditional care, could vibrate the bottom loose by the time it reaches your home or office. We suggest placing an approximately 9" round disc of plywood directly underneath it to hold the bottom in place.
This interesting article will certainly find a use in a collector room as a stand or even, with a plastic bag inside, as a wastepaper basket.
Note, due to dimensions and weight, special handling charges will apply to overseas customers.
