 Interesting attic find...

Here's what I know about this thing. My fiance went home this past week to help her parents out with a yard sale. While she was rummaging through the attic, she came across this glass. She called me to tell me about it and asked me if I wanted it. I said yeah so she brought it home. What we know is that her Grandfather served during WWII, but he was stationed in the Philippines. I guess there is still a possibility that he brought this thing home with him. But no one knows for sure how her parents ended up with it...they said they have never seen it before. I tried looking for info about similar items but wasn't able to find anything...not even a picture of anything like it. I was just wondering if any of you guys have ever seen one before and what if anything you may know about it (other than the obvious).

Interesting find. Probably not a good idea to whip it out at a Bar Mitzvah.

Did the vet in question have any brothers or close friends in the other theatre? May have been a trade-off. Assuming it is real.

i have seen 2 of those and if i remember right, they were very similar in shape. i was just trying to listen in on the conversation, i believe those sell for $40-$60, IF i heard them right. i saw them at a gun show. dont quote me too much on the value.

you can find all sorts of nazi utensils / dishes and plates if you look around.

Not sure. I don't think my fiance knows either. I'll have to ask her parents about that one. I made the comment to my fiance that her grandfather probably won it in a game of poker or something...lol.

I did see some flatware when I was googlin' around but nothing like this. The monetary value isn't really important to me...I just like it for the history behind it. I already have several other items that my grandfather brought back.
