You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht Mess Hall Canteen Dining Plate / Soup Plate, as used by various personnel!
Made of white ceramic/porcelain, this is an EXCELLENT example! Features a BEAUTIFUL hand-paint profile of an NSKK Motorcyclist, with an “Ost” collar tab. Also features an NSKK eagle staff standard with “Motorgruppe Ost“. Wording on outer edges indicatred “Zur Erinnerung an Meine Dienstzeit – Motor Obergruppe Ost 1935-9” (As a reminder of my service – Motor Upper Group East 1935-9). Reverse has has the standard Wehrmacht Eagle, with the date of 1940. Manufacture name indicates “Kolmar”. Plate is approx. 9″ in diameter, with an overall size of 14″ x 14″ framed. There are some slight wear and marks due to the age, but it otherwise VERY solid, with no cracks or chips! Though the hand-painted artwork is post-war (not sure when it was completed), the plate itself is 100% original! Would be a PERFECT addition to any collection, or display.
