Original German WWII Luftwaffe FL UV Marked Large Green Glass Wine Bottle - dated 1944

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice genuine German WWII Luftwaffe marked large green glass 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. However, due to the size and shape of this bottle, we can almost certainly say that it was used for 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. There is also a triangular label on the side, which is unfortunately partly torn away, so we cannot read what it said. Measures approximately 13 3/4 inches tall and 3 3/8 inches wide at the base, getting slightly wider towards the shoulder.

The rubber washer under the porcelain cap is still present, but it has deteriorated over the years. The cage still works correctly, however the washer is stuck to the bottle and stopper, so it cannot be fully opened. 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.
