Yeeessss Chris but sold it was dated 1914 marked to a Artillery Reg. probably still is stupidity on my part it also had cloth shoulder straps with brass hardware and eyelets.

Funky made from that lovely early ochre cloth.

Here's a Bing 'frying pan'.

I don't have much in the way of enamel kits anymore in the past I've tended to flip them if I need cash quick here's one that's kind of funky with the painted outside had 25yrs, still use it for camping and war gigs must have boiled hundreds of gallons of coffee over the years German gear lasts forever but never drink from an old enamel canteen you may get shards in your guttiwuts. :lol:

The cup is one Chip mentions above thanks mate never knew this maker before in fact most are new to me nice list very helpful your tops man write a book I want the first copy my friend for the young kids [Like me :whistle: ] who will be serious collectors one day.....its important, all right I'll shut up.

The list of makers I posted is, of course, incomplete and new names are being added periodically.

I think a better description for "hollow bottom" would be "recessed bottom". These were normally multi-piece constructions where the bottom of the cup was soldered/welded to the body. My example is a 1918 Lamprecht cup in a very dark charcoal gray enamel.

Karel,

There are also extensive lists for enameled messkits, aluminum cups and aluminum messkits.

Recently snagged these photos of a Bratpfanne, marked Bing 17. Apologies if the collector is on here, but I have to document all the Bing stuff possibly related to the wartime contracts.

While an Essgeschirr in good shape still avoids my collection, here are some of my Bing items. Two canteens are enamel, and the other it painted steel. One of each Trinkbecher--aluminum, tinned steel, and enamel. And yes, I ended up with the small Bratpfanne Hoss posted above.

A local collector has a Tornister with a metal frame labeled BING.... he has dangeled it in front of my nose for a few years, but has never been willing to trade... AND Bing made Priesterwerfer!!!!
