Hello and greatings from Norway!

I need some help with some paperbags i obtained lately

This paperbag from the company Carl Poellath KG measures 13*8cm and is unused. The backside is unmarked

Anyone able to tell me the age of this one and the purpose? For medals, military insignia or maybe something civilian?
Thanks in advance for the help

I am not at all familiar with paper award bags from Carl Poellath (or Karl Pöllath depending on the time period).  They look like their from post-1945.  I don't know why they wouldn't be legit.  Are they faking the award bags too?

Hi Claudius

 

I dont know if these are faked.

The design for me indicates post-war, im curious if thesewas used for army insignia or medals, or for civilian coins or other things :)

Bombarder,

I would say post war.  I've never seen a BRD post war award come in a paper bag.  This bag is quite different from the war time ones and I don't know what would have come in it.    This site has one for sale but they don't really say what it is.  https://derrittmeister.com/product/carl-poellath-kg-award-packets-bavaria/  Possibly try posting this on the BRD  sub forum on the WAF. (Wehrmacht Awards Forum)

Regards,

Gordon

Lets not forget... for many of these firms, military awards and badges were made for a short period over decades or even centuries of existence... for every wound badge he made, he probably made 2 table tennis association badges, for every iron Cross he made he made 10 football association badges.... and even today they are making Carnival medals and golf trophies... the chances that a bag are civilian are very large indeed unless there is some definiae evidence...

Usually if they were imperial period like the rittmeister implies they would have mentioned on it that they were a supplier to the Kings court... so I think it safe to exclude the WW1 period... also does not look WW1 style, the München 15 does not help because the Stadtbezirke were used for a long period from before WW1 to after WW2...

Yup and the ww2 ones was quite anonymous with only the small producername stamped on the back.
I would guess that medals came in boxes and not these cheap bags. I understand that the company made insignia for US Army, but those usually i think was fitted on cardboard and not put it in these bags ?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
