Original German WWII Luftwaffe FL UV Marked Green Glass Beer or Wine Bottle - dated 1940

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice genuine German WWII Luftwaffe marked green glass beer or wine bottle, offered in very good condition with the original porcelain top and swivel top wire bale. Typically clear glass was used for beer while green or brown glass would have been for wine, but this was not a hard and fast rule. This definitely looks more like a beer bottle, but it's possible that it was used to carry small amounts of wine.

The white porcelain stopper is nicely dated 1940 and coded FL UV with a Luftwaffe eagle. FL UV stands for Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung, or the Flight Barracks Administration, the agency responsible for Luftwaffe accommodations. Measures approximately 8 inches tall and 2 3/4 inches wide at the base, getting slightly wider towards the shoulder.

The washer under the porcelain cap is still present, but is actually made of what looks to be leather. The cage still works correctly, and the stopper opens correctly. These are seldom encountered and would look great with a German WWII display. Apparently many of these found in a French Rubbish dump 70 years after the close of WWII. A hard to find yet affordable collectible from the Third Reich.
