These Vintage German Army Soup Bowls came to us from Lithuania where they have been sitting in a storage warehouse for several decades. Based on the style of the bowls, visible wear, condition, location we found them, and overall markings we would estimate these bowls were produced to support the WW2 German occupation of Lithuania. There are RZM markings on the bottom of the bowls, some being very faint, that would possibly indicate these bowls were produced for use by civilian staff who assisted the German Army during this time period.
We have examined all of the bowls we were able to purchase to look for markings that may be of interest, such as German Eagles. There are no markings of that type on any of the bowls with any that did have collectible markings likely sold at least a decade or more prior to us locating these bowls. The marking that is on each bowl is RZM with the stamping being very faint on most of the bowls due to the wear and age of each one. Overall these bowls represent a unique opportunity to own authentic vintage German army gear that is unique in that these bowls were used by those supporting the German occupation of Lithuania.
